Love Always Wins
27.06.2015

I’m so glad that the US Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is legal across the United States. I’m feeling quite emotional about it. Although same-sex marriage is legal in many European countries, this was such an important step forward and hopefully many more countries will follow. Love always wins.

I have photographed weddings for years and it’s always a blessing to be invited and be a part of the wedding day, a day full of love and joy. I’m yet to photograph a same-sex marriage, so if you are thinking of marriage, please keep me in mind. I would love to photograph your special day. We are all connected, gay, straight, and there is nothing more powerful than love.

Lizzet & Aaron (DK)
29.04.2015

1 April 2015, Copenhagen Denmark

I really enjoy small intimate elopement weddings. I find them super romantic and so was American Lizzet and Aaron’s wedding at beautiful Copenhagen City Hall earlier this month. It was a day for just the two of them and their love shone through in every glance and in every step across central Copenhagen.

Allt om Bröllop

Last year I photographed Kylie and Simon’s wedding at Icehotel. This lovely Australian couple had travelled around the world to get married in this very special place. It was a small intimate wedding with only the nearest and dearest. Their wedding is published in the largest bridal magazine in Sweden, Allt om bröllop. The winter issue. It’s so wonderful to see in print.

MARIA & JOHAN
15.10.2013

24 August 2013, Åhus

Maria and Johan got married in my hometown Åhus so it was quite special to photograph this classic wedding. Maria and Johan went to school together and they got together in upper level, but it only lasted for three weeks. But then they started dating in college and they have been together ever since. They both share a love for design, especially interior design and Maria designed her gorgeous wedding ring.

Maria and Johan got engaged already in 2002, but it took another ten years, including some encouragement and two beautiful children later, until Johan proposed. Johan proposed on the very same spot that they had got engaged 10 years earlier, in a park by the water. He went down on his knee and popped the question and Maria said she cried, cause she had almost given up on her dream wedding. But in fact, Johan had planned for the proposal over the last year.

Johan and his groomsman, his younger brother, got ready at Maria and Johan’s beautiful home. Maria and her younger twin sisters joined them after hair and make up and did the final preparations before the ceremony.

Åhus was a flourishing city in the 12th century and the ceremony was held at St Maria Church, also dating back to the 12th century. We photographed some portraits in the older part of the town, especially around the remains of the medevial monastery and hospice.

When everyone thought the ceremony was over, Maria stopped by the microphone and sang the first verse of Du är min man (You are my man) a capella. So beautiful.

The guests followed the bridal party to the harbour after the ceremony. A boat waited for the couple to take them to the reception venue across the river. The reception was held in a rustic boat club house, situated beautifully in the harbour. An award-winning bartender, an awesome DJ and lovely people made for a fun night that continued until morning on the dance floor.

The Absolut Vodka factory, established in 1879, is just across the river.

17 August 2013, Stockholm

Carley and Rickard got married in the idyllic Stockholm archipelago. Carley owns and runs, Grieco Ericsson Hair Couture, a chic hair salon located at Östermalm in central Stockholm. The salon was a natural starting point on the wedding day. Margrethe, one of Carley’s employees, did the flawless hair styling and make up.

The guests, the groom and his groomsmen enjoyed welcome drinks at the island before the ceremony. The bride arrived by boat and the ceremony was held just by the shoreline with the ocean in the background.
