DALILA & GUSTAV

Dalila & Gustaf giftet seg 26 juli i sommer, og både vielse og bryllupsfest ble holdt på Søderby Golfklubb. Dette bryllupet viser store følelser og masse smil og latter, og de gyldne øyblikkene er mange. Fotograf Matilda Söderström var der og fanget det hele til varige minner.

BRUDEPARET FORTELLER: Our wedding took place at the wonderful golf course Söderby, little outside Uppsala. It was an outside ceremony where the weather was perfect and tropical.

I was actually the one who chose the location, though it ́s really my husband who is golf crazy! I found the idea very unique and different, and the surroundings out there are just magical.

The golf theme was used several times; we were driving golf car(s), we ordered personalized golf balls (every guest got one each as a memory of the day), all guests walked through a “bow” built by golf clubs held up by close family and of course wedding photos was taken on the putting green… I really liked the idea.

Best Memory: So many of course! The strongest memories are the ones when we walk down the aisle. Sitting in a golf car with our maid of honor and best man, driving up, the music starts playing and our wonderful guests just embracing us with smiles and love – I was so touched! It was so beautiful! And all the beautiful colors the guests were wearing.

Tip to other couples:

1. Do it your own way! Don’t care so much about what people are going to think or other people’s wishes surrounding your wedding. It’s your day and the wedding couple is in charge. Be brave – do it just your way.

2. Start the planning in time! To be able to get married at that favorite place, wear that dream dress, have pictures taken by your favorite photographer and so on you need to start checking that up early. The best photographers are sometimes booked a year ahead.

3. Ask for help! Your family loved ones and friends often feel very honored when they can help. We got a lot of help from friends and family with the ceremony, decorations and flowers – basically the whole wedding.

Why Matilda as photographer: We chose a wonderful photographer: Matilda Söderström. We started the planning a year and a half ahead and I googled for inspiration! I found Matilda ́s blog in spring of 2013 and fell in love with it. The pictures were magical! The best ones was where the person did’t even know that the picture was taken and all looked so relaxed. This girl really knows how to capture the special moments and just blend in into the crowd. During the whole wedding day I almost didn’t notice her. And she just has this amazing, calming, harmonious way of being around without stealing any energy. I can highly recommend her!
