Is a winter-wedding really a good idea? Oh Yes: A mountain wedding in Vemdalen.


Let’s enjoy the sneak peeks from last weekend. A winter wedding in Vemdalsskalet was the obvious choice for Emanuel & Astrid. They just love skiing and at this location, they have, many times. They invited family and friends to fun adventures in a several-days-celebration in the Swedish mountains. Gathering everyone to to live together in mountain cabins during a few days before their wedding/day, was a great experience. Allowing family and friends to get to know each other in fun activities before made everyone at ease and comfortable at the actual the wedding-day.

Why choose a winter wedding?

  1. The light is soft which is optimal for photography. The snow falling is so romantic, and even if it is a really shady day, the brightness of the snow acts as a reflector, letting us get beautiful light.
  2. In Sweden, winter is low-season for weddings, this means that you more likely can book your favorite vendors, the venue, the photographer, Make up artist as they are less likely to be booked.
  3. There is no risk for harsh sun making shadows, which means you can choose wherever you want to have your ceremony. In summer you really need to follow the sun and choose a spot where you have shade to get the best photos.
  4. You can choose more the long sleeved dress & accessories without worrying about sweating.
  5. You can make s’mores over a bonfire as a part of the day.

Beautiful accessories are easier to add during a winter wedding. And boy does Astrid wear it stunningly

Of course this cool couple wanted photos from the lift up the mountain. And I was not going to say No.
