Elegant Garden Wedding at Norrviken | Danielle & Gus

12/07/18

I have been waiting to share this elegant white and green garden wedding quite a while. I drove for seven hours to get to Norrviken, a dream wedding venue, and the rain never stopped pouring down. It was with a worried mind I arrived in Båstad for Danielle and Gustav’s wedding. I knew that Danielle wanted to have an outdoor ceremony, so I was hoping the rain would let up.

Norrviken wedding venue

It is easy to understand why you want to have your wedding nuptials in the garden of Norrviken. It is one of the most picturesque gardens in the south of Sweden. And Norrviken is quite famous as a wedding venue. As a wedding photographer, I have to expect the unexpected. Handle every type of weather and make it work. Often under time, pressure, and dealing with nerves, stress, and whatnot. It’s part of the job.

Photographing a wedding at Norrviken

It was my first time photographing a wedding at Norrviken, and it’s a venue that has been on my bucket list for sure. One never knows precisely how the day will unfold. As a photographer, I have to go with the flow. I have to use my expertise to make the absolute best of what I’m given.

This wedding has brilliantly enough been featured on Style Me Pretty!!!

Wedding photography challenges

I didn’t plan to shoot in the woods for example. But we had to run for shelter when another downpour came, and I’m talking buckets of water, not a little drizzle. Unplanned, wet and with a fogged-up old camera I shot this wedding. And I loved every minute of it! Sometimes the unexpected turns out to be the creations you love the most.

Golden Hour

Later in the evening, we got so very lucky as the sun decided to come out. I took the bride and groom out for a few sunset photos and those are often my client’s favorites. The light about an hour before sunset is the softest you can imagine. It wraps around my couple like cotton candy. Allowing time for having a few portraits taken during the Golden hour is the best decision you can do. Trust me, you don’t want to be without!

Wedding Planning

Is wedding planning starting right now and do you feel any of these things?

Nervous about looking too posy in your engagement or wedding pictures. Your fiancé doesn’t really LOVE the camera. You want to make sure all of the big and small moments are captured.

Did I hit the nail on the head? Guess what, it’s perfectly fine to feel this way. You’re not a supermodel (unless you are….then fabulous you already know all of this!) You’re not in front of the camera every single day, (and nope, selfies do not count) Here’s how I help you feel like a professional model & totally at ease in front of my camera:

I make you feel relaxed during your engagement session by chatting, joking & asking questions. All this to help you loosen up and laugh (a lot!!) I create your perfect wedding day timeline that seamlessly flows (because that stuff is hard!) Navigate your wedding day like a stealth ninja to capture guests reactions & beautiful moments that you might not remember. Be your supporter, cheerleader & share words of encouragement to help through those really nerve-racking moments!

So here’s the thing, I’d love to work with you! To help you look incredible, feel great & save all those fleeting moments from your wedding day on film! The only way I can do that is if you fill out my contact form. I can’t wait to hear from you!

xoxo, Isabelle

You’re right about the possible setbacks and obstacles that come with wedding photography, specially ‘to expect the unexpected’ and ‘handle every type of weather and just make it work’, but also the stress and the nerves. Anyway, as you know, it worth’s. And those great pictures are the living proof, so congratulations!!

    Lots of love,
    David and Carla.
