With much fun, love, and laughter, our lovely clients, Matilda and Svend celebrated their elegant destination wedding in Sweden at Bjertorp Manor House. Splendidly enough, this wedding was published on the front page of Style Me Pretty. I am proud and genuinely delighted for the feature on one of the best wedding blogs in the world. Hope you love looking through the photos, enjoy! Want to see more weddings? I’ve got you covered! See Mikael and Frida’s big bash here.
I have always dreamed of shooting at Bjertorp. It’s one of the most fantastic wedding venues in the whole of Sweden.
My fabulous bride and groom decided on a destination wedding in Sweden. Since it only takes about 3 hrs from Oslo to the venue, the choice was natural. They fell in love with it and decided to stretch the wedding day to a weekend, to spend quality time together with their family and friends.
I first met with this stunning couple in Kongsvinger, Norway last year and shot their engagement photos. Check out the session here. We had an excellent time together, and I loved how easy going they were. M + S pretty much laughed and had fun with me during the entire session.
Anyways, when it was time for their wedding day we were so pleased to indulge in marvelous weather and sublime golden light. The weather this summer has been less than great, so we were thrilled to enjoy a warm and sunny day finally. We had a splendid sunset session with them just before the sun was setting, at around 9 in the evening. The best light of the day is during the golden hour, and in Sweden, during June, it’s that late. But boy was it worth it!
The couple pretty much planned their destination wedding by themselves with a little help from family members and of course the staff at their venue. Perhaps my favorite memory of the day was when the bride had the veil put on, an heirloom veil worn by many women in her family before her. The veil was made from the most delicate silk lace and several meters long. Just dazzling!
We also need to mention dinner. Instead of just eating and perhaps listening to a few speeches, the party started early. With guest singing and literally dancing on the tables and chairs, there wasn’t a quiet moment the entire evening. It was a blast being a part of this astounding occasion and to photograph this incredibly elegant destination wedding Sweden!
