Therese & Daniel’s wedding at Beckershof Country Estate is something I’ll never forget. Especially their emotional wedding ceremony which was held on the small headland beside the lake. I love how they involved their two beautiful daughters who performed a song that made literally everyone cry, myself included.

Therese & Daniel’s proposal story is like a romance novel. What girl wouldn’t want her fiancé to go all in when he asks the girl of his dreams to marry him! Read on below to get the full story!

From the Bride:

“On my birthday in October of 2014, we had our families over for brunch. After awhile Daniel says that he has made a movie he wants to show us all. We gathered in front of the TV and the film begins with Daniel standing outside our front door and asks us to accompany him on a trip. The journey we follow is to key locations and memories that we have experienced together during our fantastic 15 years together. It is the place where we met for the first time, the location for our first date, our first apartment, outside the South Hospital where our beloved girls were born, and much, much more. While these sites are shown, music is being played in the background, music that is very dear to my heart. The film ends with the Kent and song Without your breath while Daniel is holding up signs with the lyrics to the song.When the song is over, Daniel goes down on his knees in the film (and in real life in front of the TV) and proposes to me! We are all crying tears of joy and I’m incredibly happy. Then he tells me to go pack my bag for a romantic weekend at Häringe Slott. “

I asked the bride and groom to share their favorite moment from the day and their best tips on what to focus on when planning the wedding. Thank you, Therese & Daniel for an unforgettable experience, it was such an honor to be able to photograph such a beautiful, memorable day, xoxo, Isabelle.

“It’s so hard to just pick out one, the whole day was magical, from beginning to end. You wish you could always live in the amazing bubble and just stop time. But the moment when we saw each other for the first time just before the ceremony was very special. The funniest part of the day was the dinner, for sure! We have never laughed and cried so much at the same time, what amazing friends and family we have!
We focused on having details that represented us both. The theme was rustic simplicity with a focus on personal items.We felt it was important that our families and friends could feel relaxed throughout the weekend and having music was a key ingredient for our entire wedding. From the time our guests arrived at the Friday, the wedding ceremony, the dinner, and party on Saturday, and finally to the brunch on Sunday.
The biggest challenge was the schedule, that was probably what worried us the most. But with careful planning and good help from Isabelle at 2 Brides and our toast-team, it became a non-issue in the end.
Our best tip to couples planning their wedding is to do it together. Find a theme and follow a red thread. Lay out the timeline for the entire wedding and enjoy the planning process!”

Kate and Edgards invited us to their home country to document their very intimate and lovely al fresco style wedding. We traveled to Berenati, a small town on the coast of Latvia. Even though this was an intimate gathering, the bride and groom made sure their day would reflect their relationship and what they love to do as a couple. Inspired by nature, they planned the wedding weekend around the beach villa and their mutual love for the outdoors. 
Kate, an aspiring musician, graphic designer and photographer made the vision of their day come to life together with her husband to be Edgards, who’s a translator. With about 20 of their closest family members, Kate and Edgards tied the knot in the little garden in front of the villa. Later they enjoyed an al fresco family style dinner. As a photographer it’s an extreme honour to be invited to document a wedding in such an intimate setting. We’re so thankful we got this opportunity to photograph it and visit beautiful Latvia. Thank you Kate & Edgards, we will forever treasure this. Read more from the bride herself below where she is describing their planning process and favourite moments of the days. Reader, thank you for stopping by! We can not thank you enough for spending a few minutes on our blog, means a heck of a lot to us.

From the bride:

We both love the nature and we wanted the ceremony to be outdoors. And to be an intimate one. Surrounded by silence and the sounds of nature and some mild wind in the trees. So we rented this lovely see-side house with a yard. Where we and our closest family members could have an intimate ceremony and dinner on the terrace. We also love the seaside and wanted to be near it. It was a family celebration, and we did not want to get too many people involved. We wanted to do as much as possible by ourselves. Since we love the outdoors, especially the see-side area, with the pine tree woods and the see. Sipoli Design was the perfect place for us.  It’s an elegant little place with wooden elements not far from the see. It has a yard and a terrace that we could centre our day around. Making it feel like it was a family home and we were all just sitting outside and having a fancy al fresco style dinner. One of our friends helped us as a caterer. Preparing food right behind the house so there was a really friendly atmosphere. Usually they only rent the house as a quiet weekend getaway for couples, but we were able to convince the owners to let us have our wedding there. And we’re so happy and grateful that they agreed!

As I made the invitations, I knew I wanted them to reflect the wooden theme, the lightness and softness I felt the day would carry. So I chose a photo with reindeer lichen, that I had made a few years ago. It’s one of my favourite photos. So this colour, the light colour of reindeer lichen, is the colours of our day. Plus the light mix of colours of the flowers in my bouquet and on the dinner table.

We both arrived at the house the day before and started decorating it. Setting up the music, putting up string lights and other things. We really had no idea how it would turn out. But when the florists arrived and started putting up the dinner table with all the wonderful flower arrangements, the place was magically transformed. it turned into the perfect venue, all the details coming together so beautifully. We were so proud of what we had organised.
My favourite moment of the day was the ceremony. Seeing the whole of our family looking at me, my husband, smiling as my brother led me down the isle. It was a very emotional and beautiful. And then holding his hand as we spoke our simple but beautiful vows. We had come up with them previous night in a brainstorming session whilst making the last minute preparations for the upcoming day. Everything was perfect!

Melis and Marcus’s destination wedding at Grand Hotel in Stockholm is one for the books! A mix of cultural traditions, a lavish party and loads of emotion. Not to mention a gorgeous bride and a very dapper groom. They picked Stockholm and Grand Hotel for their destination wedding for a few different reasons. Mainly because the bride is half Swedish but also because Stockholm is such a beautiful city. They felt positive that guests coming in from all corners of the world would love it as much as they do. Our bride and groom resides in England travelled over to Stockholm several times to plan their wedding and with Stockholm being a rather small city, planning was easy for them. We are beyond thankful we got to witness and photograph their union, we simply adore this couple. With four different nationalities, Swedish, Turkish, Indian and English, they made sure to embraced all of the different cultures. Thank you Melis & Marcus, for the trust and tremendous honour in having us document your day. We feel incredibly blessed to have been chosen as your wedding photographers! / Isabelle

From the bride: We began our wedding festivities with an Indian themed welcome party,  and we incorporated English wedding traditions and music to the ceremony, Turkish poetry readings and favours bought from the bazaar in Istanbul…and the beautiful Stockholm was the perfect backdrop to our special day. With guests from over 26 different nationalities, and 30 if you include where some guests travelled from, we wanted our wedding to be a celebration of these different nationalities, cultures and religions, and to remind us all that we overcome these differences for two things: friendship and love.

Stockholm wasn’t a hard decision. Being half Swedish, it’s a second home for me (the bride) but what was so incredible is how quickly Marcus fell in love with it and became his second home too. So we loved the idea of our friends falling in love with it too. Guests had plenty of time over the weekend to explore Stockholm, and we were delighted to hear that everyone was just as enchanted by this cool, and beautiful city as we are! Thankfully it is easy and convenient for many of our friends to fly to as well!

We are very lucky that our gorgeous venue, Grand Hotel needs no introduction, theme or colour scheme – the two rooms, Vapensalen and Spegelsalen are stunning enough. So really, everything that we added was to compliment the beauty of the rooms. We kept it simple – gold lettering on the Order of Service, and white flowers for example.

Favourite moment of the day? Every detail and every moment was a favourite! The excitement of getting ready, imagining what each other’s vows will be, the intimate and quiet moment we shared while doing our portrait session, hearing the wonderful words spoken by our friend during the ceremony – making us both laugh, and cry, declaring our vows while being surrounded by our loved ones in the beautiful Vapensalen, all the speeches during the dinner and of course dancing the night away in the incredible Spegelsalen felt like a dream! But I think it was the intimacy and romantic setting of our ceremony that really stood out for us. We felt so overwhelmed by all the love from our family and friends, and seeing all their faces looking back at us, well… that is probably the best feeling in the world.

We felt so unbelievably lucky and the whole day was simply perfect.

We are so grateful to 2Brides for documenting every moment so brilliantly so we can relive the day over and over again.
