Moderna Museet, Stockholm
Anna and Magnus met in Anna’s hometown Umeå 7 years ago. Anna was living in London and went home for a holiday to see her friends and family and met Magnus who was studying to complete his degree. They have been inseparable ever since and currently live in Hong Kong.
Anna and her bridesmaids went to WHYY, where Karolina did hair and make up. The groom and his best men stayed behind at Grand Hotel. The ceremony was held at Stockholm Anglican Church with approximate 120 seats. It was filled to the very last seat.
It was only a short walk from the church to the boat, but some of the guests managed to get lost during the walk. When they were walking over the bridge on their way, another group of wedding guests crossed their path and about 20 guests simply followed them to another wedding reception. Some even helped themselves with drinks before realising it was the wrong wedding reception.
The Modern Museum was chosen because of its superb location with a panorama view over Stockholm, selected partly because of all the international guests. This also inspired the choice of menu with canapés with something Spanish (the groom’s heritage) and northern Swedish ingredients (the bride’s heritage).
The starter was made of Västerbotten cheese, a Swedish delicacy, the main course was blackened reindeer, something a lot of the guests had never tried before and the dessert had cloudberries, also a typical northern Swedish ingredient.
Anna said “one of the best memories from the wedding day was to have all of our family and friends from different stages in our lives gathered. We had guests arriving from four continents. It was truly special for us.”
