Frida & Hampus – Stockholm – June 9th, 2018

Wedding films
27 augusti, 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 completely calm about it. She is just that warm, welcoming and humble, so you can’t help to just feel like ”ok, names problemas, I got this.”.

Said and done. I went to Stockholm the day before and met up with Frida and Hampus at their secret location (the guests didn’t even know where they were going) and from the first second I felt like this wedding will be the bomb. Lovely couple, lovely location and one of my absolute favorite photographers – Linda-Pauline – would be by my side during the day. This could not fail.

I brought my second for the wedding – Josef Runsten – along and we started up at the couples favorite hotel in Stockholm – Hotel Diplomat. That’s where the preparations took place and where Frida and Hampus hade two separate rooms to get ready in, but still met up for lunch together before the first look.

You could just touch the feeling of how it’s not just Frida and Hampus. It’s them. They are a unit. I could see it so clearly when all seven of the bridal party were together, that they were all friends, all united. Not his and hers. But theirs.

And then we took of, out to Ruin Retreat at Saltsjö-Boo, in Stockholms archipelago. A new place, that had never hosted a wedding like this before. And it was just…magic. That word is used a lot in the wedding industry, but really. This was just it. Magic. From the printery, to the flowers, to the singing from Andreas Wijk during to ceremony (oh my GOD), to the speeches and the surprise from Fridas sister Sofi and the rest of the family – Julia Frej came to sing during the dinner – to the cake and through the party. It was all just that kind of wedding you want to relive over and over again.

And now (humble statement, I know), thanks to the video – they can. The text message I got from Frida after they had seen the video will be kept private, but I can tell you this: it made me cry. A lot. And she specifically wrote that anyone that doesn’t invest in wedding film are missing out. You should listen to her. 😉

Anyhow. I’ve written this to you so many times, Frida and Hampus, but thank you. Thank you for choosing me. I am so happy I got to do this.

Ann-Sofie & Peter – Träslövsläge – May 20th, 2017
What can I say about Ann-Sofie and Peter, that will truly and fairly explain them and their love for each other? I slipped into this wedding quite late, when the bride won a competition where I was the prize. They then choose to buy some extra hours for me to cover more of their day and I'm really thankful they did.  I went to Varberg on the Swedish west coast on a sunny and warm Saturday morning with my friend and assistant Matilda. We arrived to Hårporten in the center of Varberg at 9.30 when the bride, called Anse, was in the middle of getting her makeup done while Peter had the last touch of his hair. I could feel som tension in both o ...

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 ...

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 ...
