Åsa & Pontus – Örenäs Slott – June 24th, 2017

Wedding films
6 september, 2017

So, I got the question last year, from the best wedding coordinator in Sweden, if I was free on ”Midsommar”, which is Swedens most celebrated weekend during the summer. She was planning the wedding of a football player, playing for the National team of Sweden and his girlfriend and they wanted a videographer. I was so new, had only done one wedding when I got the question, so maybe I should have said no. This was about to be a big wedding. But ”no” is not my thing. ”Yes” is.

A few months before the wedding, the groom wanted to make a film with his speech, cause he knew that he wouldn’t be able to ”hold it together” during the wedding reception, so I went down to Malmö and met up with Pontus and I immediately felt that this is a guy who hasn’t let his fame and success get to his head. This is a humble guy, with both his feet on the ground.

We both cried while he spoke into the camera. I cried while editing it. And then we cried while playing it in front of the more than 100 guests as the last thing on the reception before the party started. And not just us. Everybody cried.

I like that. Tears and feelings all over the place. You could feel the total love, joy and tingling nervousness during the morning and up to the first look. Through the small moments in between, through the portraits, the ceremony and all the speeches. The bride, Åsa, must be one of the most grounded and loving persons I have ever met. The way she spread her love over her friends and family in her speech was extraordinary. Well. So was Pontus filmed speech, as just mentioned.

I feel so humbled to have been a part of these two lovely souls wedding day. To witness their love and get to know them and see the little things they do, like Åsa resting her head against Pontus shoulder and Pontus kissing Åsa on the forehead. How they so much belong together, but still are very much their own individuals.

The world needs more people like Åsa and Pontus. That’s just the way it is.

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 ...

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 ...

Frida & Hampus – Stockholm – June 9th, 2018
Only like 1,5 months before Frida and Hampus was going to get married, I received a text message from my friend and favorite wedding coordinator Johanna Kajson. "Are you available June 9th?". And actually, I was. It was one of four dates I still had free during June, July and August. She hooked me up with Frida and Hampus and the rest is, like you say, history. To explain things a little closer, Frida Fahrman is a quite known person here in Sweden, so I was a little bit nervous about the whole thing. Sure, I have done a couple of big weddings before, but still I get a bit "hoho" about it all. But from the first contact with Frida I was com ...
