I absolutely loved every second of Frida & Espen’s romantic Swedish midsummer wedding//Bröllop at Flädie mat & vingård. The location is beautifully located in the Southernmost parts of Sweden and known for it’s exclusive dining and great house wine (If you’re interested in wine and up for trying a new bottle have a look at their collection here.) In addition it’s a great location for a wedding reception with lot’s of picture perfect portrait locations and a big reception space for your wedding party.
Frida and Espen started their day of by getting ready in the nearby town of Lund at the beautiful Grand hotel, followed by a church ceremony at Flädie Kyrka, a short walk from the reception venue. And even though it was pouring down with rain as they came out of church, it cleared up quickly and the champagne reception took place outside in the beautiful vineyard. Later that evening, after all that great food, in amongst emotional speeches and loving toasts, the most beautiful sunset appeared and I managed to sneak the couple out for a short sunset shoot in the nearby fields. The evening light, the beautiful backdrop and the gorgeous F + E made for a perfect mix and some amazing photos.
F + E, thank you so very much for having me join you for your amazing wedding! It was an emotional day, filled with so much happiness, love and well wishes. It is clear how loved and supported you are by your family and friends. Not to mention the love you have for one another. It was evident in the way you look at each other, in your tears, in your laughter and in your speeches. It was beautiful to watch. I would like to wish you both all the very best for your future adventures together. Thank you! Lot’s of love, A.
Here’s some images from the wonderful wedding photography session I had with Lisa and Derek in Copenhagen for their spring celebration. The day started of at City hall with a short intimate ceremony, followed by a walk together in central Copenhagen for lot’s of beautiful wedding photos in typical Danish locations. Lot’s of fun, color and great backdrop was had and I’m so please to have had a chance to spend an afternoon with this amazing couple getting to know them better and capturing wonderful moments on their wedding day.
L + D, thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your day and for being such a great couple all round. I had so much fun with you and loved the time we spent together in Central Copenhagen. I’m so grateful and think you are such an beautiful couple, inside out. Thank you. Lot’s of love, A
I recently spent 3 days shooting a wedding at the beautiful Cap Estel in Èze, situated between Nice and Monaco, in the south of France. A lot can be said for the beauty of the venue & it’s location, I could go on and on about the blue sea and the clear skies. Tell you again and again about the sunsets, of how the world changes with the hours of the day. I could describe the sound of the water washing up on the shore over and over again, and recite the sound of the wind as it touches earth.
But what I really want to tell you involves two people in love and the energy they brought to this day and this place in time.
There’s nothing quite like it when you arrive for preparations to find the beginning of what already feels like the perfect story. You’re on chapter one and you know this is a book you’re not going to be able to put down. And to no surprise the following chapters of the day unfolded in a best seller for sure; filled with excitement, beauty, spontaneity, fun, laughter, passion and love. In short, a story of two people in love, who couldn’t keep their eyes of each other all day, who seemed to be one rather than two. It’s also a story about family, who cares and shares in their love with their laughter and their admiration. A story that talks of friendships with no limits, beyond borders, who rejoice in the happiness of forever after.
N + V, you are beautiful. I could say it a million times, because you truly are. You know the beauty that shines, the one that glows in the dark and smells like roses. That one. I am so happy to have been a part of your special celebration and to have been the one to capture your story with my images. Thank you. So much.
Also a big thank you to my second shooter, Ingrid Simons, who’s always up for an adventure and who supports me always in my work and who worked so well to help create some of the images in this post. Thank you lovely. You’re amazing!
All my love, always. A
This beautiful wedding venue, situated on the peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, on the French Riviera, is a regular venue for me. I’m in love with this place and so honoured to come back here again and again to photograph weddings. For this recent wedding I particularly loved the setup. Planned to perfection by the lovely Wedding Planners Monaco. Love the beautiful lighting, long tables and an ocean of flowers by the talented Wayne & Jeff at Wayneriley Flowers
