Recently I had the privilege of flying all the way from lil ol New Zealand across the other side of the world to photograph this gorgeous wedding in Sweden!
Matilda and Izaak met in New Zealand and lived here together for a number of years before deciding to head back to Matilda’s home country.
I got to know Matilda, Izaak and their families quite well over the course of the week that we spent together. We visited a castle in Denmark, I photographed an engagement session for them and then had some wine afterwards with their friends, and I went to Ikea with their bridal party and played in all the different furniture set ups (such fun)… and then had the privilege of photographing their incredible wedding day!
What really stood out for me about these two, was how much love and appreciation Matilda & Izaak have for each other. The way they look at each other, laugh, play, and giggle at each others jokes, is really unique and special.
The weather was a little dodgy on their big day and rained most of the morning. Because of this they had to have their ceremony inside on the dance floor of the reception venue, which although a little squishy was really beautiful. It was a heart felt and memorable ceremony. Luckily it cleared up and we were able to go out in the slightly wild and windy conditions after the ceremony to take the rest of their pics.
Editing these wedding photos has been a mission and a pleasure at the same time. I really struggled to narrow them down and choose the best shots to deliver, as there were just so many great moments to remember! I guess having too many photos is the best case scenario.
I’ll always remember this amazing wedding, the family, and the friends and the experiences we shared. It was really so special to be a part of their journey, getting to know everyone, and capturing these memories so their day can live on.
I hope you enjoy going through this beautiful wedding day, as much as I enjoyed being there and photographing it… which was ALOT!
Ahh Sweden.. Take me back…
