The wedding we have for you today is brimming with natural light and features a beautifully atmospheric ceremony in the ruins of an ancient stone church. Rebecca and Martin married on Gotland, Sweden’s largest island, letting the sublime setting of the natural surroundings be their main decor. Sara Norrehed captured the day, and there’s an ethereal aspect to these images which we’re truly captivated by.

From the Bride 

“We had been together for about 10 years when Martin finally proposed on a cold and dark winter night at a viewpoint overlooking the Baltic Sea. That we would get married on the island of Gotland was a given since we love the special scenery and feel of the place. The church ruin for the ceremony we had already found several years ago while exploring old churches on the island. I had also already imagined what style of dress, hair and flowers that I wanted to get married in so within a week from the proposal almost everything was booked!

Naturally we wanted a wedding that reflected us as much as possible and we had a clear view of what we wanted out of the day. The most important thing was to set the mood to colour the day with happiness and joy. Style-wise we went for classic and modern with a personal twist. I spent hours and hours at the computer looking for the right details. Everything from colours to music was carefully chosen and planned considering contrasts and the feel of things. We think we achieved what we wanted and more!

On the wedding day I woke up to the sound of rain against the roof and got really nervous for what would happen to our ceremony if it rained. Luckily the weather cleared and during the ceremony the sun shone magically through the windows into the ruin. Actually the whole day turned out to be completely magical and thanks to the incredibly beautiful images taken by the fantastic Sara we can go back and relive this day over and over again…”
