Amazing rustic summer wedding St Karins Church ruin Visby, one of the prettiest places in Sweden. We truly loved every second of shooting Johanna and Tobias’ wedding and love their laid-back attitude and fun personalities. It’s the best thing when you get the honor of documenting such a special occasion and when it’s all said and done, you want to keep them in your life forever. We are so pleased to see this wedding featured on Style Me Pretty! Read much more below about good food, trust, high cliffs and wedding dresses…

I love Gotland, it’s personal. I met my husband here many years ago and visited often as a child since we had relatives living here. The white long beaches, the amazing medieval city surrounded by a great wall and the never-setting sun during those June summer nights. So, when Johanna emailed inquiring about our wedding photography services my heart skipped a beat. I’m so thankful we got to photograph this wedding, it was one of those almost religious hallelujah moments, well technically not since I don’t pray really, but you know what I mean. It was almost a religious experience. I cried, I laughed, I want to keep this moment in my heart forever.

Ok, enough with the emotions and let’s talk details. Johanna had 3 wedding dresses. Yes, 3. She decided to wear her grandmother’s lace wedding dress for the ceremony. It had been a bit altered to fit but not much, and this gorgeous lace wedding dress took a whole other meaning of course. Her grandmother didn’t know so when she walked down the aisle I was ready to capture the look on her face, but it wasn’t anything dramatic, but she smiled big! The lace wedding dress was my favorite I think. Or perhaps the empire flowy dress Johanna changed into for the portrait shoot, or the fishtail dress, ok can’t seem to make up my mind. They were all gorgeous. Her dashing husband Tobias kept the same outfit all day, he looked smashing!

So the ceremony in St Karin’s church ruin in the heart of Visby is a place I’ve often passed by on my way to something else. Situated at Stora Torget you always see it but I never went in before. It’s magnificent! Just recently all the church ruins opened up to book for weddings and such, that’s so freaking fantastic.

The photo of the two of them on the cliff is shot at Högklint, a well-known spot to get amazing views over the shoreline and that was like the photo I knew I wanted to capture. I was really happy they went along with my idea and ventured out on that cliff. It is REALLY high up! Turned out just as I had envisioned it and I love it.

Food, good food is important and the food at LEVA’s is SO good! Johanna and Tobias had cocktails out in the apple orchard and later moved on up into the large barn and enjoyed an ecological buffet and charcoal grilled everything, all made and prepared by LEVA Kungslador. Totally recommend a stop here if you ever visit Visby!

I’m particularly touched by Johanna’s sweet words below, my heart melts and my eyes tear up. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

From The Groom:

After getting engaged Johanna and me spent several months looking for a wedding venue that felt like us. One day we went out looking for a place to eat lunch and found this lovely stone-oven-bakery and restaurant called Leva Kungslador. It didn’t look like much from the road but when we went inside it had this rustic, artistic feeling inside combined with the most amazing food and warm feeling to it. And then we went outside to the back and there lay this beautiful, relaxed garden with wild flowers, an apple-orchard, a green house where you could just sit down and take a cup of coffee. No need to say we fell in love with this place instantly!

From The Bride:

After finally finding our wedding venue the rest of the pieces just fell in place a long the way. 2 Brides Photography was an obvious choice, I mean look at their work, it is just stunning. And they really helped us in the planning-process, giving advices and recommending different people. I remembered the day Isabelle answered my email and told me they were available, I was so happy I did a little a victory-dance! It’s really hard picking a favourite part of the wedding. It was all so wonderful, the music, the speeches, walking down the aisle with my father looking at my soon-to-be-husband, and to feel all the love around us. I will keep in my heart forever.
