Borgholm Castle Wedding in Sweden | E + D
You know when you meet people you know you’re going to be friends with? It happens just a few minutes into the conversation, when you’re excitedly talking over each other, wishing you had hours to spare. That was exactly what happened when I first met E + D. Or met I say, it was a Skype call as I sat in my office in London and them in their new flat in Sweden. They had found their way to me from Brollopspodden (the largest and best podcast in Sweden about all things weddings) and when they described their vision for their wedding, my excitement levels grew.
Borgholms slott, or Borgholm’s castle doesn’t have a roof, but magnificent halls that takes your breath away. It stands proud on a cliff on the large island of Oland in Sweden, hosting weddings and music events throughout the year. We had absolutely all types of weather in a day, ranging from brilliant sunshine to rain and hail and the ceremony plans seemed to change from minute to minute. In the end, just as E walked in with her bridesmaids, the sun broke through the clouds and lit up absolutely everything. Towards the end of the ceremony, strong winds grabbed hold of her veil and just a few minutes later, the rain came.
Laughter, great food, dance, tears and cheers filled the magnificent cellar holding their wedding breakfast. I loved, loved, loved photographing this wedding and these people.
