Servah & Carl – Winterviken, Stockholm – July 7th, 2018

Wedding films
30 oktober, 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 into the suite where Servah and her crew of family and friends was getting ready – all thoughts of football were gone. There were pulse. There were nervousness. There were laughters. There were tears. And there was this magical and energetic first look, where Servah were actually bouncing up and down while Carl entered the room. It’s true, just watch the video.

And then when I drove to Winterviken Garden, where the wedding was gonna take place, England scored their first goal. I got a little p*ssed (sorry), but I shook it of before the ceremony. And what a ceremony. Servah, with her Persian roots, and Carl, from Sweden. Two very different cultures in all and also in weddings. They managed to mix the two cultures together perfectly, with beautiful songs and lots of love, before they summed things up with lemonade and sweets after the ceremony.

Sweden lost and that was that. The World Cup was over.

But the wedding was far from over! The whole wedding party continued at Winterviken and that was where the real magic happened. I have never seen two cultures add up to one big love like this. When all the somewhat stiff Swedish (I’m allowed to say that, cause that how we Swedes are) were watching the dancing start immediately and then after a few minutes just jumped in and joined in the dance – I cried. It was so, so beautiful and I will never forget that moment for as long as I shall live.

Thank you, Servah and Carl, for showing everyone that love has no boundaries. For spreading your energy. For being you.

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. ...

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 ...
