Matilda and Svend travelled from Norway to Sweden to marry in a beautiful manor house with close family and friends last June. Bjertorp Manor House is Sweden’s best preserved Art Nouveau manor with beautiful grounds and gardens. The venue is charmingly situated only three hours from Oslo surrounded by golden fields on Sweden’s west coast. Matilda and Svend fell completely in love with the venue and decided to stretch the wedding day to a weekend, in order to spend quality time together with their family and friends. Their day was captured to perfection by 2 Brides Photography.

The wedding day dawned with marvelous weather and sublime golden light. The weather last summer was less that great in Sweden so the party was thrilled to finally enjoy a warm and sunny day. Just before the sun set, at around nine in the evening (in Sweden, during the summer, the golden hour is that late) the couple had a portrait session with their photographers Isabelle and Sabina.  The couple had pretty much planned their destination wedding by themselves with a little help from family members and of course the staff at their venue. Matilda’s veil was an heirloom, handed down after being worn by many women in her family. The veil was made from the most delicate silk lace and was several meters long- dazzling!


“We got engaged in our first home- it was an apartment that we had completely refurbished together and it meant so much to us both. We picked “Come Away with Me” by Norah Jones for our first dance and “You’re the First, the Last, my Everything” by Stevie Wonder was played when the groom carried the bride to the dinner table, and it really stands out as a favourite. The song that really took off on the dance floor was- somewhat surprisingly- “Händerna i Himlen” by Petra Marklund. Perhaps not our favourite song, but it now accompanies some of our favourite memories. The fantastic ladies of 2Brides Photography, Isabelle and Sabina were absolutely fantastic to work with and truly contributed to an  even more amazing wedding. We are already recommending them to all our friends and we will definitely call them again if we do anniversary or family shoots in the future. Our favourite moment was the spontaneous wild dancing during the dinner- the atmosphere was magic! The funniest moment had to be when the toastmaster/master of ceremonies had some had some spot-on introductions that we still laugh at. He really set the tone for the evening. If we had advice for other couples, it would be to go the extra mile when planning so that when the day comes, you can sit back and enjoy the ride!”
