I had never been to a wedding as an adult before this summer. And now, in a period stretching 3 months, I have had the honour to see four beautiful couples vow their lives to one another. Four couples who all have very different backgrounds, but who in the end simply love each other so much that they cannot see a future without that other person. It’s such a breathtaking thing when you think about it – and I have cried at each and every ceremony.
I have not only had the honour to attend these weddings, but also to be a part of the process of immortalising the day for the newlyweds and for their friends and family.
I can today show you the product of the first of these wedding. This is the film me and my lovely colleague and partner in crime Emma-Klara Sandberg of The Flowershop filmed and edited for the gorgeous couple Sara & David.
The wedding was held on an island in Sweden called Visingsö. I actually went there once with school and the majestic figure of the castle ruin talked to me on a spiritual level as soon as I saw it. I have always had a thing for old castles and ruins so when they told me that the ceremony was actually to be held inside the ruin I almost lost it.
We then proceeded to meet the couple; Sara and David. They have been together for 10 years and the way they look each other is as if there are no other people on this planet. They were both getting ready in different places and we spent most of our time with Sara, along with her sister (the beautiful bridesmaid who sung like an angel!), the photographer Isabelle Hesselberg from 2brides, and Linnéa Berqvist from The Wild Rose who made all the beautiful flower arrangements. Oh and by the way – Sara herself made the gorgeous design for all papeterie.
It was a hectic day but it was filled with so much joy, warmth and love that everything just fell into place. We filmed David getting ready, reading a letter that Sara had wrote him, filmed him seeing her in her wedding dress for the first time (and OMG can we talk about the dress? Those colours, that lace!) feeling their love in the silence as they just held each other. Let’s just say I teared up more than once. It was truly a wonderful day.
Emma-Klara and I had so much fun filming this and we are very proud of the result. If you and your partner are thinking about filming your wedding, please drop us an email, and why not have a look at The Flowershop for more stuff about styling, flowers and music for your wedding.
Lots and lots and lots and lots of love
