Contemporary Summer Stockholm Wedding

Some weddings don’t fit into just one single “box.” Rustic. Modern. ClassicWhimsical. Some weddings perfectly blend those categories for a style mashup all their own, and this celebration is a prime example. It’s natural and organic with greenery galore, but also sleek and minimalist with contemporary edge. It all comes together seamlessly, and there’s more to see in The Vault from 2 Brides Photography.

From 2 Brides PhotographyIt was such a pleasure to photograph Sandra and Gabriel’s visually lush outdoors wedding at Ekensdal. Their wedding was super relaxed, fun, and filled with adoration. The bride and groom are the sweetest people ever and they were so laid back, it really felt like we were family. The bride got ready together with her bridesmaids at Ekensdal and the guests and the groom arrived by boat just before the ceremony. The ceremony was heartfelt and lots of music were played by amongst others, the groom’s sister. During recessional the guests tossed rose petals and cheered for the newlyweds, the bride was simply glowing, a very romantic moment.

We are beyond thankful that we got to be there to witness their union and to celebrate together with Sandra and Gabriel, the entire day was just enchanted. Also, Mattias at Ekensdal, floral designer Linnéa at The Wild Rose, and stylist Elin from Elins Art Studio, are the best of the best to work with. They can create the most perfect setting for any style aware bride and we can not recommend them enough.

From the Bride…He proposed in London, Hyde park. Gabriel had secretly booked an appointment in advance at Tiffany’s later that day. The bride-to-be felt like a princess picking out the right ring and diamond.

We planned everything ourselves and we chose to have an outdoor wedding. As you know, you can not control the weather. We were nervous for weeks. We were really lucky having a rain-free day with some sun but with quite strong winds. Some of the outside details we had to remove due to the wind. We were also supposed to have sheets over the benches but they just blew away. (However it turned out even more beautiful without!)

When the wedding ceremony started. After months of planning we could finally let everything go and just enjoy. What wasn’t done didn’t matter anymore, and we realise that OUR wedding was actually beginning. The music began, the bridesmaids left one by one. A deep breath, I’m next, walking, and then the first look at each other. That was my favourite moment of the day.

We used Pinterest for inspiration, you can find almost everything there. Really easy to be swept away for hours. However we wanted a clean and unembellished feel to the day and we felt that inspiration for that was a bit harder to find.

The dinner with speeches and surprises was a delight and so much fun. We didn’t know anything in advance what was going to happen, except of course for the food and servings. Our toast master and toast madame had done such a great job planning everything without us finding out. Also, It’s a pure joy having people you like everywhere you turn and that they are there for you. Our best tip as far as planning a wedding is to don’t care about what you should or shouldn’t do or who you have to invite, this is your day. Just do as YOU like. Then take time to really enjoy.

From 2 Brides PhotographyA gorgeous and sunny day Matilda and Svend tied the knot and celebrated in style together with family and friends at Bjertorp’s Castle in the South of Sweden. This bride and groom looked crazy beautiful and throughout they day they just gave each other glances with eyes filled with love. So, so, so romantic. Such a pleasure to photograph their day, we are beyond thankful to have been invited to witness their union.

From The Bride…Our wedding was all about having a good time with our friends and family, our favourite hobby! The spontaneous wild dancing during the dinner was fantastic and the atmosphere pure magic! The toastmaster made some had some spot on introductions that we still laugh at the memories of. He really set the tone for the evening. We encourage you to go the extra mile when planning your wedding, it’s so worth it. When the day comes, sit back and enjoy the ride. We are so happy with our photographers. The fantastic ladies of 2 Brides Photography, Isabelle and Sabina. They were absolutely fantastic to work with and truly contributed to an even more amazing wedding. We are already recommending them to all our friends and we will definitely call them again if we ever do anniversary or family shoots in the future. Everything about the wedding exceeded our already high expectations!

Romantic Summer Swedish Wedding

Sometimes the ceremony is what really shines, or the tablescapes are just so unbelievably amazing, it’s all I can focus on. But once in awhile a wedding comes along where I just want to jump in and live among every single second of every single image and this Swedish celebration is just that. Simply elegant and beautiful, Lina Roos captured it all for our lucky eyes to feast on right here in our VAULT! Enjoy!

From the Bride… Ivo and I met while we both worked in Spain, we worked together at a Swedish company and we hit it off from the moment we met. I loved his laugh and his self security, how he could mix humour and seriousness and how safe I felt with him. After two months of dating we became a couple and a few months later we moved in together.

Even though we both loved our life in Spain, we missed home (primarily me). So after two years we decided to move to my home town, Malmö. Without a second thought Ivo agreed to move to Malmö with me even though his home town is Göteborg.

We spent a few weeks in Croatia, where Ivo’s father lives, during the summer of 2013. It was a warm summers evening on the 15th of August when Ivo got down on one knee in our hotel room by the sea in Brela. It was a beautiful sundown, and Ivo had opened the terrace windows so we could look out on the sea. I was quite taken by surprise and said “Are you kidding me?!” I had expected a proposal at our favourite restaurant in Brela, but when Ivo told me that he had been too anxious and nervous to do it in a public space, I felt that this was the best proposal I could think of. Especially since he never gets nervous and always keeps his cool in any situation. Afterwards we went for a stroll in the sunset and celebrated at a quaint restaurant by the beach.

We decided to get married two years later in Malmö. We wanted a venue that was in the city centre as we were having guests from all over Sweden and Europe. We wanted a Mediterranean feel to reflect my Spanish and Ivo’s Croatian roots. As soon as we entered Ljusgården in Malmö Börshus we both knew that this was the place. It felt like a courtyard even though it was inside, the ceiling was made of glass with light shining through and a beautiful marble floor.

On the wedding day I was preparing with my bridesmaids at our suite at Elite Savoy. The maids’ dresses were nude and pale pink. I had a lace dress by a Danish designer and a cathedral veil from Copenhagen Bridal, and silver grey shoes from Badgley Mischka. The bouquets was made of different white flowers and lots of green by Cecilia Ericson at Patcys Blommor in Göteborg. This was one of the details I was most satisfied with during the day, they were beyond my expectations.

Ivo was very handsome in a grey three piece suit from Hugo Boss with a silver grey tie and shoes from Tiger of Sweden. His Best Man matched him in light grey suit, and they both wore a white peony corsage.

We were married at St. Petri church, just five minutes from the venue. We knew from the moment we saw it that we should be married there, with its grand white arched ceiling and majestical altar. I was led by both my mother and father, and the moment Ivo and I looked at each other is something I’ll never forget. This moment is the one I will cherish the most from that day on. My best friend and bridesmaid Emma sang Beyonce’s version of “Ave Maria” and few eyes were dry.

After the ceremony we went for a photo session in Kungsparken. It was a magical moment in front of the camera, newlywed and still a bit tense but very happy. It felt good to hug and show emotions before dinner and the party. As we entered the venue the song “I Got A Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas was blasting through the speakers, a song that reminds us of the time when we fell in love.

The menu was a Mediterranean inspired buffet, selected by Ivo as he loves buffets. Unlimited amounts of food is probably every man’s dream. The dessert was white chocolate panna cotta which was immensely popular. We were surprised with different games held by the toastmaster during the dinner. After the dessert we snuck off with our photographer to take a few photos in the evening light, and it was nice just to be the two of us for a moment.

When we came back we mingled with our guests before the dancing began. Our photo booth with props was very popular during the evening, so was our candy bar with our favourite snacks. We sliced the cake around ten and then the party really started; we danced the night away and had a fun and crazy night.

During our wedding day I couldn’t take it all in due to being too nervous so we’re both very glad we hired Lina Roos as our wedding photographer. She was with us during the entire day and captured all the magical moments. Her photos makes us remember that day and she’s given us wonderful, emotional photos that reflects the day to a tee. We enjoy looking at the photos and remember how beautiful it was to be married to one’s soulmate and to celebrate this with those one cares for.
