2010

Annika & Jakob have been together for some time. They have two kids, Elvira and Fredrik, a big family and many friends. They all came to the charming chapel in Nacka Boo to witness the ceremony.

This little chapel has no tower for the bells to ring but as you can see there was sort of a wooden tower outside with bells.

It's hard to believe that only two minor bells could create such a noise. It maybe depends on who is pulling the rope? Anyway, Fredrik thought it was cool, allthough maybe a littel too loud...

Two baskets with so much rice that you could feed all the birds in Nacka.

When I drove to Sundbyholms Slott it was one of those really warm summer days we had this year. I had all sorts of cold drinks, fruits and energybars with me. You could say I was prepared for almost anything. It was a friday and I was looking so much foreward to the wedding of Annacarin & Per.

 

But I had no idea what would happen later that day...

Photo: Brigitte Grenfeldt

Annacarin hade chosen deep purple cloured calla for her bouquet. The park  and surrounding were beautiful.

Those two love-birds were so sweet to each other - and to me! Unfortunately, we did not spend very much time together but as long as I was with them they were so concerned about me - especially when it happened...

Photo: Brigitte Grenfeldt

Shortly after I had taken those pictures, walking backwards, looking at the couple, taking pictures whiIe they were walking. I stepped back....and I fell........ 5 feet down........and I knew I had hurt myself badly. I looked around, the cameras seemed to be ok. Thank God! But something else was wrong.

My leg would not move - it was broken!!!

That was when Nino (one of the guests and husband to the beautiful Cecilia)took over with my camera while I was on my way in an ambulance to the hospital for an x-ray.

Thank you, Nino, for helping me and Annacarin & Per, to get beautiful wedding pictures despite that accident. It is now exactly 3 months since it happened and I was struggeling if should post that story or not. Now, that I feel better and know that my leg will be ok after all (even if it will take some time) I feel that I want to thank you in a special way.

 

See you in a few months without my crutches!

That's great! People are talking about the "SecretBox" and booking for Christmas! What could be a better present than some sensual pictures in an elegant box?

And of course I do not only photograph brides-to-be but also brides that have been in front of my camera years ago and now want to surprise their husband - you better buy some sexy lingerie...

I would have loved to show you many, many, many pictures of this wedding but...it's a secret! On the other hand there were so many beautiful details that I will share those with you instead.

We started at the brand new beauty-salong "By Barda" in Stockholm. Great atmosphere and very stylish! The bride and the bride´s maids had ordered lunch from "Pontus".

Look at the killer-shoes! ....PRADA!!!! Those dresses were my absolute favourites of the day. They could have been from an old Hollywood movie.

A Swedish "Spelmans lag" played when the couple left the chapel and lots of rose petals were handes to the guests. Look at the shoes of the bride's maids!

The details and the decorations at Helena & Christoffer's anniversary party at Riddarhuset were so elegant and stylish. Each guest received a little gift as a memory for this very special day.

Photo: Brigitte Grenfeldt

Both - Helena & Christoffer - had prepared a speach for each other and proposed a toast across the dining room. Their friends had a "royal" surprise show for them including most of the royal family (can you guess who's who?)

This is the new trend: small cakes! Not one big wedding cake but many small cakes with different tastes and designs. And while the guests enjoyed the coffee they had the opportunity to flip through the wedding album i photographed 10 years ago...

The evening was warm and the Scandinavian light still was out there. Helena was swept away by her husband fot the first dance this evening. And from what I have heard they danced untill the morning light.

For their 10th anniversary Helena & Christoffer wanted to have the party they could not afford when they got married. So they invited the same guests to the same location (Riddarhuset) they had invited for coffee 10 years ago, they hired the same jazz band and the same photographer - ME!!!

Photo: Brigitte Grenfeldt

This time the invitaions were handmade and very, very exclusive.

Photo: Brigitte Grenfeldt

Instead of flowers Helena decided to bring some colour to this very elegant, greek inspired dress with a red stola. She looked like the godess with the same name!

There was so much passion and tenderness between those two - and they still looked the same after all those years!

Ten years ago our photosession was calm and peaceful... but this time it was so much more fun! Karl Hugo and Amanda are adorable kids and full of energy.

Most of my "SecretBox" models are very happy with the shape of their bodies - and they should! But some tell me after the shooting that it was the best they ever did to feel beautiful and "just perfect". So why not book a "SecretBox" and feel gorgeous!

Cecilia entered the church together with her father. Despite the discussions that have been going on (crown princess Victoria wants her father to lead her to the altar and some people in the swedish church have some other opinions) there was nobody that had the feeling, that Cecilia was not walking down the aisle by her own free will.

Cecilia & Nino loved to shoot their private photos before the ceremony. We could have spent the day just taking more and more pictures but there was a wedding ceremony that would not wait... more about that soon.

I want to share with you what one of my ”SecretBox” brides wrote today:

 

Hej Brigitte,
Innan jag tittar på bilderna vill jag passa på och tacka för en jättespännande och rolig dag. Du var precis så härlig, mjuk, inspirerande och professionell som jag föreställt mig. Det var ett sant (och liiiite, eller snarare ganska mycket pirrigt) nöje! Men nervositeten jag kände innan jag kom till fotosessionen försvann fortare än kvickt när du tog tag i kameran. Tack, tack, tack!

 

...och WOW, är det verkligen jag?!? Bilderna är ju jättevackra!! Fastän det är jag på dem…? Du kan ditt jobb!! Nu ska jag titta på bilderna i lugn och ro och så hör jag av mig igen om en liten stund och berättar vilka jag väljer. Ha det så himla gott tills dess.         Kram, M. 

Photo: Brigitte Grenfeldt

Tack, tack, tack ännu en gång snälla du. Det var en superrolig upplevelse. Nästan som en minimöhippa för mig själv . En riktig egoboost som fortfarande sitter i. Nu när jag sett bilderna så vet jag att jag inte kunde ha hittat en bättre morgongåva till min älskade blivande man. Ha det gott och sköt om dig tills nästa gång vi hörs.     Kram, M.   

 

Thank you, M. for your generosity and those kind words. They mean a lot to me - believe me.

The international wedding of Sarah & Nicolas is featured in the latest edition of the swedish wedding magazine "Allt om Bröllop" . The wedding was last summer at beautiful Krägga Herrgård. If you want to see more pictures just go to my galleries and click for Sarah & Nicolas.

Tomorrow, Helena & Christoffer will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary with a gorgeous party and I will be there too. Yes!!! They booked me again to document this event. It will take place at the same location, with the same guests and it seems that we get a beautiful sunny afternoon - again.

 

Please have a look at their album I did 10 years ago:

At that time - back in 2000 - I was one of the first wedding photographers who worked outside the studio, on location, with my Hasselblad off the tripod! Every image was on 120 film (!) and you better created each picture directly in the camera. Without Photoshop!!!

Helena & Christoffer wanted some black & white images too. That ment that we had to switch to B/W film. No converting colour to B/W in the computer...

Helena & Christoffer are now the parents of two beautifull kids - Carl Hugo and Amanda - they live now in Switzerland and are still crazy about each other after all those years.

The album quality 10 years ago was incredible. Those leather albums my clients ordered at that time still look gorgeous. Look at the details of the corners!

Nowadays we can create stunning coffee-table-books that my clients of today order for the documentary photography - and Helena & Christopher already know that they will order a CTB with all the images from their 10th wedding anniversary.

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure to join the Grand Opening of "Fotografiska", the first museum for photography in Sweden. It was very exciting to see all those images of Annie Leibovitz. The event was organised by Spoilconcept - Maria (whose wedding I photographed in February, is the co-owner of the company), you did a great job and it was an amazing evening! Thank you for inviting me and don't forget to choose your images for your coffee-table-book...

A few weeks ago i received from Maria & Marcus a thank-you-card. They got married on New Years Eve in Stockholm, although they live in Oslo, Norway. As you can see they could not chose only one image for the card - so they asked for a collage - great idea if you have so many beautiful images you want to share with your family and friends. They also ordered a coffee-table-book which will be back from the printer any day soon.

When I met Cecilia & Nino just a few days before their wedding they came up with the idea of a "signature-board"  for the reception. I had almost forgotten that I used to do those some years ago. What a great idea! Every guest can sign the photograph and create a beautiful memory.

While Linda & Karl-Johan had the cocktails with their guests, some of their very best friends handed balloons, cards and pens to the guests. They wrote their wishes for the couple on the card, tied it with a ribbon on the balloon and 1-2-3 off they went to the evening sky. It was time for dinner...

A few days ago I met Susanne & Daniel for the first time but it seemed as if we had known each other. I get that feeling quite often when I meet my wedding couples - could it be that we are on the same wavelenght and share a passion for photography? Anyway, in only 4 months we will look out for the weather report and cross our fingers that the sun will shine on Värmdö!

On Mondays I photograph for the "SecretBox" and this Monday Helena and I met at a hotel in Stockholm for her shooting. In the beginning she was very shy and nervous but after just a few minutes (and having seen the first images on my display of the camera) she totally loved it and said: "I could go on the whole day photographing. This is so much fun! I will recommend all my friends to do this - it is such a boost for my selfconciousness! " So, don't hesitate - mail me att info@brigitte.nu and make a booking for your own SecretBox.

Do you belong to those people who have the opinion that everything will work out just fine even if you are a last-minute-planner?

I received an e-mail from a future husband:

 

Hello, Brigitte,

One of my friends told me he got a fantastic present of his wife on the day after their wedding. It turned out she gave him your Secret Box. I have no idea if my  fiancé  has been in contact with you or not. Anyway, would you please send me some information about this great gift? Thanks - and let's hope she will book you...

Kind regards,

D.

 

Of course my answer is confidential ;-)

I can't mention it enough: Have fun with your shoes! Skip the boring white satin pumps and be more glamourous. You don't have to buy a pair of Yves Saint Laurent shoes but you have to agree that they are the "icing on the cake" if you have a small wedding.

When Ann & Cato decided to get married, they knew they wanted a small and intimate wedding, yet warm and exclusive for the few guests they had invited. They could not have chosen a more suitable place than the Lydmar Hotel in the center of Stockholm where they met a few years ago.

This hotel is a dream for photographers, designers, musicians... well, all artists! It is full of gorgeous art, sculptures, beautiful details and the atmosphere is so "family-like". Have a look by yourself and order a cup of tea or a drink when you pass it on your Sunday walk to Skeppsholmen.

Without any warning Maria (the one with the blue Manolo Blahnik shoes) came to my studio with a gorgeous bouquet of lilies. I had to wait a few days before the buds turned into bloom.

Meet Maria! One of the most generous and warmhearted persons I've met. She is the co-owner of Spoil Concept and believe me, with her in the company your own company will be taken care of in the best possible way!

The bouquet was created by Tage Andersen who is a master of capturing a persons personality and re-creating it in a flower arrangement: feminine, curvy and a little unpredictable - that's Maria!

Ahhh...those shoes... Giuseppe Zanotti ! And I looove the hair piece!!! I promise to ask Maria who made it.

This is another example för Maria's generosity: All bride's maids (she had three) and other "helping hands" got a pretty bag with a personal, hand written Thank-you-card and a present from Svenskt Tenn. Who would not have wanted to be her bride's maid?!

"To spoil is to care" is the motto of the company were Maria is the co-owner. To be sure to get a white wedding Maria and Johan decided to book Fjällnäs Hotell in Funäsdalen near the Norwegian border for the Valentine's weekend. They chartered a plane for the guests and instead of boring sandwiches all the guests received a goodie-bag from Blueberry that Maria had ordered. I can assure you, Maria really knows how to spoil the people around her!

After the guests had checked in at the hotel they found special Valentine's candy in their room as well as all necessary information for the weekend.

I have to admit - I am not a skiing person but I love wintertime.

 

Maria & Johan had decided that they wanted to have their photographs taken the day before the actual wedding. They knew it would be far too stressful with all the activities they had planned for their guests.

Maria's wedding dress was i a greyish lavender (?) with crystal embroideries. So the the Bottega Veneta Knot Bag in purple was as perfect as the silvergrey shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti's 2009 collection.
