Tara & Peter – New York – March 23rd, 2018

Wedding films
8 maj, 2018

It was in the beginning of March. I got an email: ”Can you film a wedding in New York March 23rd? I know it’s short notice, but if you could, it would be awesome.”. The email came from the wonderful Anna at Rentalstories and she was planning the rooftop wedding of Tara and Peter.

”Can I film a wedding in New York?” Is that even a question? That’s like the dream of dreams!

So I didn’t have the chance to get to know Tara and Peter before the wedding, like I usually want to do. I don’t want to be a stranger showing up on peoples most important day in their life. But that’s what happened this time. It didn’t last for long, though. Peter was all happy and, from what I could see, zero nervous and Tara had the support of her three wonderful sisters and the four of them took me in like true friends do.

During the day I learned much about them as individuals and also about their relation. It was a small, yet big wedding. Not many guests, but extra everything when it comes to the rest of it. I loved it. I could really tell that Tara and Peter are two smashing personalities that wants stuff to happen fast – yesterday if it was possible. So that they got married only six months after being a couple didn’t feel strange at all. Only like them. Like it suits them.

I think that, together with the tempo that characterizes New York, made this film what it is. Something completely different from everything I did before. Urban, pulse and high class.

There is so much more than this, when it comes to Tara and Peter and their wonderful families and friends. How Taras father really spoke to me during the evening, how the toastmaster Martin did his 13th(?) ”job” as a toastmaster and did it so firkin’ well. How all the kids were so well behaved, yet brought people to laughter. How Taras mother owned the dancefloor. How Taras younger sister Tanja spoke about Tara in her speech. How beautiful the singing was during the ceremony. But I can’t fit it all in here. It’s for Tara and Peter to watch in private, in the longer film.

But here is for the rest of you. Enjoy.

Wedding venue and reception: Kimpton Hotel Eventi.
Wedding officiant: Eva Engman.
Wedding coordinator: Anna Edström Widén with her assistant Astrid Westin from Rentalstories.

Sarah & Simon – Rosenhanska Magasinet – August 19th, 2017
It's 2008 and I move to a new city to play handball. As my teammate I get a 17 year old girl named Sarah. I am 23 at the time, so we're not really at the same place in life. But still we are. She has a hard time figuring out who to be and how to be it. So do I. But in all of this we guide each other. I know she thinks that I was the one helping her, but she helped me as much. Some would say there was a blind leading a blind, but I chose to see it as that we took each others hands and took baby steps forwards in the dark, with only the light from a match to show us the way. I would call it brave. In 2009, I think it was, she met Simon. H ...

Isabella & Zahron – Tuscany, Italy – September 22nd, 2018
Isabella and Zahron had the most amazing wedding weekend at the fantastic Borgo Scopeto Relais, outside of Siena in Italy. This castle is the perfect place for a wedding and I feel humbled about having the chance to film a wedding here. Isabella, from Sweden, and Zahron, who grew up in Canada, met in Hong Kong, were they both lived and still live together. Their many friends from all over their world is their family in Hong Kong and you could really tell during the weekend that this is a very close group of people that really love each other and really knows how to party. The ceremony took place between the olive trees under the very ho ...

Jenny & Johan – Säfsen – January 27th, 2018
Jenny wrote to me just a few weeks before the wedding, not having very high hopes that I could film their wedding. But at least she wanted to ask, she wrote. But even with a short notice we made things happen and I am so glad we did! Jenny is fireworks. She is one of the most pure people I've met. Her laughter and her kindness is heartwarming. Johan says when he describes her that "she is caring and always makes sure everyone else is taken care of" and that is exactly my experience of her. Johan, on the other hand, is what you would see if you took a dictionary and looked up the word "calm". (Or if you google it, it's 2018 now...) He is ...
