Last wedding of 2008

This year was absolutely fantastic! I had weddings almost every week-end.

The last wedding this year was on December 20th with Aysel and Erkan, who had booked a lifestyle portrait-package. We knew it would be dark, cold, windy, rainy...you name it. Aysel was very determined: black & white and outdoor! No matter what the weather had in mind...

We met at Stadshuset, the city-hall.

We were the only people there that day. During the rest of the year it's crowded with tourists.

I was windy and the rain had no mercy.

Erkan was sweet - he tried to keep Aysel's fingers warm.

And Aysel made him laugh despite the unfriendly temperature.

They almost forgot that they were freezing...
...and they enjoyed that hour together before the big reception.

Erkan said that Aysel looked like a princess.

But even a princess would get cold feet in stilettos!

This one is my favourite of the day.

Hot feelings in a chilly Stockholm

When Andrea and Philip made plans for their November-Wedding they knew it would be cold, dark and possibly some rain. What a surprise when some snow came during the night!

Andrea's arrival to the ceremony with the snowwhite Rolls-Royce was worth a royalty.

The guys were still busy with fixing their ties and cufflinks.

Philip proudly showed me the ring he bought - a lot of bling!

Being the owner of a store specialized in wedding dresses Andrea knew exactly what would fit her best.

She wore the most glamorous veil I have ever seen!

A very important part of their ceremony were the crowns.

They received their blessed rings from a priest.

A special "thanks" to the videographer who gave me some wonderful backlight!

The hottest trend this winter: Lace!

Arriving at Operkällaren I took some very fast pictures outside the Rolls...

...and on the steps to the Rotunda. It was chilly, believe me!

I told you... it was the longest veil I've ever seen!

Having some rest before the dinner with almost 200 guests.

I just love when I can create images with real emotions from different angles.

The menus and the gifts for the guests were in perfect harmony with the colours in the Rotunda.

The first dance was right away when they entered the reception and everybody around clapped their hands.

The temperature turned hot when Philip kissed his bride and everybody shouted.

The perfect couple!

It was a real Fairytale-Wedding!

Still very, very secret...

In a few weeks Miss L. will get married. The morning after the wedding she will give her husband a "SecretBox", containing an album with very sensual images. Some of those you can see here. Photographing for the "SecretBox" is always very special - every bride deserves a very personal session and pictures that show her sensuality.

Sorry, sorry, sorry!

Yes, I know, I should have blogged more often the last weeks, but I really had to concentrate to get all the orders done before Christmas. I have been very busy - as you will see soon.
