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.

Mathilda and Johnny. The wedding they through at Frideborg Österlen in August 2018 was absolute perfection. This was the day that had it all. Rain and sun. Laughter and tears. Calm and party. Teamwork and competition. Fantastic music performances. Beautiful clothes. Lots of portraits, lots of hugs, lots of beer, great flower work, amazing families and friends. Just everything.

Anna & Markus – Åhus – June 17th, 2017
Anna and Markus, a really stunning couple with good taste who loves to compete and challenge each other. That was what characterized their wedding day. This was the kind of wedding that was just laughing, playing, joking and dancing all day and night long. But even though the serious part was not shown as much as it is in some other weddings, I know it was there. I could see the thankfulness, the love, the humbleness through the laughs and the jokes. People who are alike and who just develops side by side and who never stops evolving. A really motivating set of people. The wedding was shot as a Due Film and Photography collaboration and yo ...

Servah & Carl – Winterviken, Stockholm – July 7th, 2018
This bubbly and fantastic person named Servah called me in the spring and asked if I could film her wedding. She had this energy that went right through the phone and into my heart. I could hear her excitement and how she just couldn't wait to get married to her Carl. Of course I was gonna film their wedding. We started out at the classic Hotel Drottning Kristina in the absolute center of Stockholm. Outside there were lots and lots of people, all dressed in yellow and blue. It was the day that Sweden was gonna play England in the quarterfinal in the football World Cup. And I was missing it. Again. But what the heck. As soon as I went in ...
