Having an outdoor winter wedding in Sweden is pretty bold. I love it when our clients go for what they dream of instead of what’s considered safe or easy. Safe would have been to have the wedding ceremony inside since it was February. Easy would have been not draping the entire reception area in white fabric. But since Amanda and Jesper picked Hedenlunda Slott for the beautiful surroundings, they chose to declare their vows under the bleak winter sun and party the night away under meter upon meters of flowy white textile.
An arbor resembling freshly fallen snow decorated ceremony scene as guests were served hot apple cider before finding their seats. The cider made from Hedenlunda Castle’s own orchard was perfect to warm up the guests on this chilly afternoon. Amanda and Jesper thoroughly embraced the season in the best way possible. Inspired by ice, snow, and the beauty of wintertime. We are very happy to have had this wedding published on Style Me Pretty’s front page a while back. It is always a proud moment to see our client’s celebrations published. Thanks to the team of vendors hard work that landed us there.
The bride and her bridesmaids prepared in one of Hedenlunda Castles’s many exquisitely decorated rooms. Antique furniture and rugs together with large chandeliers created a distinct atmosphere. I wish that every bride got such an exceptional start to their wedding day as Amanda had. Meanwhile, the guys played snooker and enjoyed a glass of whiskey as they helped each other tying their bowties.
Hundreds of candles lit up the stairs leading down to the old Orangerie as guests entered the space. All decorated to create the sense of an imaginary winter wonderland. Draped in flowing fabrics, branches of pine suspended glass lanterns and lush winter greens, wedding planner Fanny and her team had transformed the downstairs area. As closest family and friends held heartwarming speeches laughter filled the room. The newlyweds were challenged to play fun games, one of the games including schnapps. The Swedish way. Straight up. (big ones!) For us, it was an exceptional celebration that we will never forget. Who knows when we get to shoot another outdoors winter wedding in Sweden.
