When Anne & Robert contacted me and told me that they wanted to book me for a secret wedding, I was of course immediately intrigued! Their plan was to invite all the guests at a wedding weekend at their hometown, Viken, a small country village by the sea in the very south of Sweden. It would start with a reception on Friday, on Saturday it would be wedding followed by lunch and then “BBQ & Boogie” in the evening. But the guests should be wiser ? Because it was a secret wedding, we began to photograph in the artist Simon Arnes fantastic garden with incredible boxwood globes! It is completely private and no guests could see the bride and groom there. Then while guests mingled at Anne’s parents’ lovely house and garden, we were able to sneak down to the beach below the golf club in Viken and take amazing golden hour portraits. Soon they should reveal their secret to the guests!
Then me and my assistant rushed back to the garden to be ready when the guests were surprised by a bagpiper (Anne’s family originated from Scotland) that would lead the guests to the church. It was such an incredible moment when people excited, touched and almost worshipful went in bridal procession to the church, which is located a few steps from the house. I had to dry my tears a couple of times ? At 20:30 in the evening the ceremony began, with the bride and groom proud and a little mischievous came into the church to bagpipe music. A cosy, funny and very beautiful wedding that also was gilded by their friend, the incredible soprano Annie Fredriksson who sang until my eyes became wet again. After the congratulations on the church grounds, all the guests and the bride and groom walked back to the house between the torches and so it was time for champagne, canapés & 50’s music!
This was one of the sweetest, warmest and nicest weddings I’ve been to and I have to say that I highly recommend other couples to follow! After what I heard afterwards it was all weekend successful and what more can you get out of this? Yes, to be married on a Friday is a very good idea because you can cozy up with their guests for days!
