Let me tell you something!

As a wedding photographer I get to see so many different venues, some are better prepared for weddings than others. And as the knowledge of people overall has developed regarding food choices people are happy to see that the venues more often than not pick local and season inspired food in their wedding menus, I have chosen to pick my favourite gems! Not to mention, the ones I have picked are stunning to work in regarding location and interiors! Let me get you inspired!

Lets start with Sillsalteriet at Marstrand

Sillsalteriet is a stunning to say the least venue at Marstrand I would choose again and again!

Gorgeous venue at Sillsaleriet, Marstrand. You book it through the Marstrand havs hotell.

Eli & Robert got married at Marstrand late August and decided to add a post wedding session when they came to Stockholm a week after their wedding! This was of course a hit!

Who would NOT want some gorgeous photos by the water in Sthlm or as it is called “Venice of the north”?

Hello everyone!

So, I figured most of you who are planning on getting married might want to read what a wedding photographers 5 best tips for your day are. In the end we all want your day to run as smoothly as possible so that you can focus on each other and get amazing photographs of your day!

Truly, that is what I want for all my couples; for you to get whatever dream wedding you had in mind – and stunning, breathtaking photos to go with it!

 

  • Time. This has been repeated so many times, but I do want to put this first. Have enough space in your BIG day schedule. Why? Because anything can happen, and quite often it does. Transportation for the hair and makeup artist might be delayed, traffic jams, accidents, yes, literally anything could make the time hectic, and you do NOT want that to happen. Also make sure that everyone working on your day knows your schedule. It’s unfortunate if it’s a surprise for the MUA that you are doing a 1 1/2 hour portrait-session before the ceremony. Everyone needs to be informed. And yes, you do need that amount of time for the portrait session if you want the variety of different locations, poses etc. Also make time for lunch, it is no fun to faint on your big day.
  • Lighting is everything – in the church, dinner location and party. Please only use candles or/and white lights. Avoid purple, red or heavy green. I even have it in my contract that it might just be so that I can not deliver photos in color from the party and dance if it’s harsh colored lights. And if you get to pick your church – one that has big windows and lots of white on the walls is likely to give you great light.
  • Ceremony advise! Yes lets talk about that, your guests surely want to see your faces when you say yes, and put your rings on… so stand not too much facing the priest or wedding officiant but instead each other and your guests. With that said I also want to say that please take your time when you put the rings on, so we get to capture the moment on camera – and also, face each other not the off./priest.
  • Colors/patterns. When you talk to your officiant before the wedding and plan your ceremony, do take a few moments to get in sync regarding clothing during your day. Make sure the person understands that they need to be discrete, avoiding big colourful hats, or big patterned clothing. Please do not wear Birkenstock sandals on the couples wedding day. Avoid colourful plastic files, and that goes for the toastmadame/-master too.
  • Let it all out. Don’t think too much of what others think about your day. Feel what you feel, and let it ALL out. Emotions are a part of a wedding day, as is being a bit wild, crazy and/or silly. Enjoy it, have fun and let it show. It is most certainly going to reflect in your photos.

Marstrand’s havshotell, ocean hotel Photo cred Lizzan

Tuesday night and I am still at awe by the weekend wedding I shot at Marstrand, on the west coast of Sweden.

While sitting in the car driving into the small city of Marstrand, it was like a fairytale. So very close to the water, on both sides, and I was screaming my lungs out loud. Maybe you heard me on my instastories Evelyn Wallin

The groom Robert was born and raised in Gothenburg but has spent the last 8 years in Singapore where he also met his bride, Elisabeth.

They got married in Marstrand church, and then took a small steamboat over to Sillsalteriet where the dinner and party was held. Here comes a sneak peek of a day I will late forget.
