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.

Margaux & Christopher – Copenhagen – June 23rd, 2018
This day. Wow. I went with my assistant and friend Matilda to Copenhagen a warm summer day, knowing we were gonna miss Swedens game against Germany in World Cup (football). When Sweden finally made it to the World Cup we were gonna miss one of the games for a wedding in Denmark. Well. "Just suck it up" was everything we could say and we went over Öresundsbron, that connects Sweden and Denmark. Ok. We already knew that this wedding was gonna be fantastic. The connection with Margaux was so smooth and easy from day one and we felt so relaxed going, cause we know that they had chosen us specifically for our style. Matilda on video and me, ...

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

Cecilia & André – Gothenburg – October 28th, 2017
Cecilia and André. Two doctors, that shares the love for good food and wine, fun friends and family. Cecilia with roots from and a childhood in Brazil and André with Swedish and Finnish roots made a lovely mix for a wedding party at River Café in Gothenburg. Cecilia and André. Two grownups with the love of two teenagers who just fell in love and believe nothing in the world can stop them. In this case I absolutely believe that's true. The love these two show each other is a rare thing, I think. I think the word that most describes it is: gratitude. That is at least the feeling I got from watching them together and apart. That they are like ...
