Sarah & Simon – Rosenhanska Magasinet – August 19th, 2017

Wedding films
15 november, 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. He was a part of her making it through the tougher times and in to the lighter ones. Cause, believe me, Sarah is light. She is the brightest, clearest most joyful kind of light. Wherever she goes, she goes with a smile. Whatever she does, she does with a smile. It’s hard to not be impressed by her character.

And Simon. He is the perfect example of a mother-in-law-dream, as we say in Sweden. Ambitious, gentle, caring and yes, very competitive. Maybe the last part isn’t the dreamy part for every mother-in-law, but for me it is. He is confident and a real anchor when times get tough. So you see. They’re a perfect match. So it’s not really strange that their whole wedding weekend was a 100% success. Their families, their friends and relatives, they all gave everything to make this wedding to something more than just to people getting married. To the greatest gift a couple could get – see two families become one, see people unite in the church, during dinner, through the speeches, the cheers, the shots and through the massive party. Well, see for yourselves.

That I got to film their wedding is beyond words for me. It was an even more emotional weekend than I had thought it would be. I cried from when I saw Sarah getting ready until the last speech that night. And I even ended up giving a speech myself. And, of course, cried right through it.

So. I would call it brave, what we did, helping each other out, not really knowing where we were going and still today I see that little girl as my Mini, my sister. Even though we live miles apart. With great lives around us and in our hands. Who would have thought that nine years ago? I think we did good.

Sarah and Simon. You are goals. And I know you will live happily ever after, cause there are just no obstacles in the world you can’t beat if you fight it together.

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

Camilla & Albert – Marstrand – September 9th, 2017
My best friend, since almost 20 years, was about to get married. They HAD to have a wedding film, and I HAD to do it, but since I was one of her bridesmaids I couldn't film it. So what to do? Easy. One of my other best friend has assisted me on three weddings this year, so I handed over the recording part for her and then took care of the editing myself. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was not easy. Not at all. A friend you've done everything with, shared your toughest and happiest times with. To witness her and her husbands love for each other, a kind of relief to officially, in front of the whole world, be one anothers. To see her deep b ...

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 ...
