Caroline & Joakim – Norrvikens Trädgårdar, Sweden – August 1st, 2018

Wedding films
3 mars, 2019

So… This wedding was a true fairytale. Not even joking. And therefore the choice of music. It’s just right.

But let’s start from the beginning.

In the end of July I got an email. It basically said ”We know this is a long shot, but we’re getting married on Wednesday next week and our videographer can’t make it. Is there any way you can?”. And well, let’s be honest, the timing was not the best. I was leaving for vacation in Germany the day after and I had just been away doing three weddings in one week. But of course I wanted to help them. So I said yes. And not until the day before the wedding everything was settled and I was so happy to go to film a wedding at the fantastic Norrvikens Trädgårdar again. This place is made for weddings, I can tell you that.

On the wedding day I sat in my car and drove the two hours from my home to Båstad and the rain was pouring down the entire time. ”This will be interesting” I thought. But the second I sat my foot down at the long walkway up to Norrvikens the sun came through the clouds and the rest of the day was sunny, warm and fantastic.

Never could I have imagined that this couple that I booked only the day before and I would get along so well. As you will see in the film, Caroline is the kind of person that smiles with her whole essence. She is just pure joy. Absolutely fantastic. So it’s easy to understand Joakims reaction when he sees Caroline on their first look. He cried and so did I.

Oh, did I mention crying? Ahh. Well. Wait ’til you see the groomsmen in church. My God. I get teared up just by thinking about it.

Anyway. The only bad thing about this wedding is that I only was there for seven hours. I wish I could have covered the whole day of this fantastic wedding. The couple, the friends, the families. The music. It was all just a dream come true. And a happily ever after.

Enjoy watching.

Location: Norrvikens Trädgårdar.
Church: Hovs Kyrka.

wedding film Pontus jansson
Åsa & Pontus – Örenäs Slott – June 24th, 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 recep ...

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 ...

Iceland elopement photographer
Mallory & Félix – Iceland Elopement – May 30th, 2019
A wedding on Iceland is probably a huge dream for many photographers and videographers around the world. As was it for me. And in 2019 I got to do my own Iceland elopement wedding film. I had the honor of joining Cole from Nordica Photography to document Mallory and Félix's absolutely amazing elopement at Snæfellsnes peninsula on a beautiful May day. The weather was not typical for Iceland. It was warm and the sky was blue, in contrast to the usually cold, rainy and windy Iceland. I guess the weather just wanted to match Mallory and Félix, cause let me tell you: we had FUN. There were so many details with this wedding that was amazing. ...
