{andy & cecilia} ~ wedding ~ sweden

I have lived in Australia for five years and in many ways I’m turning Aussie. I still can’t do Vegemite, but you never know, one day maybe. When Cecilia contacted me about shooting her wedding in Sweden I knew I wanted to do it. Andy is Australian and Cecilia Swedish and they live in Sydney. Their story is in many ways mine. Unfortunately I didn’t think I’d be able to be in Sweden for their wedding, so I had to turn it down. Months later I decided to go over and visit my family in Sweden and remembering Cecilia, I contacted her again. She still loved the thought of me shooting their wedding, so I packed my gear and jumped on a plane.

Svärdsjö in Dalarna in Sweden pretty much epitomizes what Sweden is, what it looks like, how it feels, smells and sounds and I was wondering if I would be able to capture it properly.

This was my first Swedish wedding, but hopefully not my last.

I normally put a slideshow last in my posts, but this time I ask you to watch it first. The music is a traditional Swedish hymn about summer, sung by artist Sofia Karlsson. It was also played on the church organ during the ceremony which I unfortunately wasn’t allowed to shoot.

You can watch the slideshow here.

These are just a few of my favourite shots from the day.

being from dalarna i really think you captured the feeling. i leave in stockholm nowadays, and looking at your photos made me kind of homesick. now i’m sure that i want to get married in dalarna…

[…] and yet another wedding photographer […]

I must say, Wow what a beautiful album here you have taken

Vilka underbart vackra foton!

All I can say is WOW!

WOW! Det är det enda jag kan säga! Herregud, va avundssjuk man blir!

Jösses. Jag tappar hakan.

I loved everyone of the photos, you are very talented!!! My teenage daughter loved your photos too and she have already decided who´s gonna take pictures at her wedding. :)

Kunde inte låta bli att gå in och kolla in slideshowen igen. Du är så grym, Jonas. Du har mer talang i ditt lillfinger än vad jag någonsin kommer att ha i hela kroppen. Sluta aldrig.

[…] This year I’m shooting weddings all over Australia, but also in Asia, Europe and North America. I simply love to travel. And the thing is I actually love the actual traveling too. Once you arrive somewhere you’re static. Since I’m Swedish, I have to mention the wedding I shot in Sweden last year. It was my first time back in Sweden for a couple of years and my first Swedish wedding. It was a long Swedish summer night by a beautiful lake. To me it felt like being in a Swedish fairytale. You can find the wedding here. […]

Hej!
Surfade runt och hamnade på din site.
Fantastiskt fint arbete, jag blir sällan berörd, men detta var roligt att se.
Lycka till!

Simply gorgeous!

The Flower shot up the aisle to the alter is straight up magic. talk about tilt shift how it is supposed to be used. Amazing.

very nice pictures!!

Helt underbart vackra bilder som vanligt. Du lyckades verkligen fånga essensen av Sverige.

crying……
georgeous!

I don’t leave commets but this time I must – your images are like nothing I’ve seen before.. out of this world.

Very inspiring pictures. I also like the slide show. Simply amazing.

Wow, absolutely beatiful, in every aspect.

So simple. (If you know what I mean) but so beautifully done…

[…] an all Swedish wedding. Two years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long btw) I shot Andy and Cecilia’s wedding in Sweden, but as with the ones I’ve done this year, they’ve all been about cultures […]

These are some creative and imaginative shots. Love them. I especially like the Black and White shots. Professionally done.

Wow stunning, such a unique style. Absolutely love the party shots.

Amazing vivid shots! Don’t know which picture I love more. Perhaps it’s the stunning background. Well done x
