I’m off to Oslo to speak at Photocamp tomorrow so I’m wishing you a great weekend today already. We’re in the middle of November and Stockholm is so darn grey. I’m a sucker for color so I totally enjoyed this shoot. A large floral arrangement hanging from the ceiling is a great way to frame your table and a great conversations starter for wedding guests. Right?? Who hung that up there and how did they do it? Well my friend and floral designer wiz Linnea did, for all the vendor links check below. Antique candlesticks adds warmth and looks like jewellery and is a lovely contrast to any barn’s rustic walls. Since barn weddings are typically associated with a simple and more “rustic” style we created this to breath new life into an old idea. Personally I love plum and blush for an October wedding, lush and abundant, like comfort food.

Sara and David’s romantic Visingsborg castle wedding took place on the small island of Visingsö, Sweden. These highschool sweethearts where destined for each other and their day was filled with so much love. Sara got ready at her family’s summer cottage and David next door. As she was doing her makeup she sat down and wrote a letter to her future husband and sent over the letter with a gift. Such a lovely thing to incorporate in your wedding day. Don’t forget to read the brides own words below to find out more how they planned their day and some advice. Thank you Sara, David and your loving family, I truly enjoyed spending the day with you / Isabelle

How did you two meet?
We met already in high school through mutual friends, and became a couple when we were 16 years old. Since then we have been accompanied by education and qualification, has been separated for travel and study abroad, living in different cities, moved in together and supported each other through life’s ups and downs.
How did the proposal go down?
During a trip to London in December 2014, David went down on one knee and proposed. He had arranged with a private balcony at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel and we engaged ourselves with the whole city lights in the periphery. It was amazing!
Why did you choose Visingsborg Castle?
In June this year we celebrated ten years together, and we could not think of a better way to celebrate it than to get married. We said yes to each other in Visingsborg castle ruins, surrounded by friends and family, on beautiful Visingsö where I have spent all my summers since I was little. It is my place on earth, and where we share many wonderful summer memories. The week leading up to the wedding predicted all weather channels large amounts of rain, and we were torn between hope and despair. During priest vigseltal fell a few drops of rain and it felt like the whole congregation held their breath. But few drops was all that came and they tell you it will mean lucky.

Join us for a winter wedding at Ljunglöfska Castle in Stockholm. We haven’t blogged for ages due to a very busy but amazing wedding season (that never seams to end). But here goes, finally!
In the very last days of winter, almost spring temperatures, we were fortunate enough to spend a marvellous day with Jenny and Kenny as they got married and celebrated right here in Stockholm at Ljunglöfska Castle. A more loving and graceful couple is hard to find and we are forever thankful we were chosen to document their wedding. Read more below about how they planned the wedding and what was the most memorabel moment of the day. Jenny and Kenny, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we LOVE you!

What was the inspiration behind your wedding?
Kenny and I both wanted a small, traditional and elegant wedding. Neither of us is comfortable to be the center of attention, but since we only had our families and best friends present the atmosphere was intimate and we felt relaxed and comfortable all day.
It was important for us to make the day as pleasant as possible for the guests as well, so we rented a bus that drove the guests from the church to the party venue and we made sure the guests had something to drink and eat immediately when they arrived. While we were photographed, the guests were entertained by a live mingle singer. All guests were treated small survival kits, which included i.a. candy, chewing gum and headache and hangover tablets.
Why did you choose Ljunglöfska Castle?
I love castles and when I was a child I really wanted to be a princess, so to me it was obvious that the wedding party was going to be held at a castle so that I could be a princess for one day. Ljunglöfska Castle immediately felt right when we visited it a dark and cold November night. It has a warm and cozy feel to it, the staff is very accommodating, it is situated just by the water and as a bonus it is very close to the church we got married in.
Why the theme and colors?
I’m very fond of the combination navy blue and gold; very classical and suitable for a castle wedding. I didn’t want typical “girly” colors, since I wanted Kenny to be represented by the colors as well. It turned out the wallpaper in the dining room at Ljunglöfska was peacock patterned, so I chose to add peacock feathers to the table decorations. They matched the navy blue/gold theme beautifully.
Favorite detail or moment of the wedding day?
I was told the day would rush by and it really did! I enjoyed the day from start to finish, but my favorite moment was when we exchanged the vows, the traditional words thousands of persons had said before us. The words are simple, yet so meaningful. It is so beautiful when two people promise to love and stand by each other. I also really cherish the memory of walking in and out of the church, meeting eyes with our families and friends; it was such an emotional experience. Oh, and I also have to say listening to the singer performing the songs we had chosen; the songs really described my feelings and it was so amazing to stand there with the love of my life and listen to them together, hand in hand.
