An international wedding for you this week guys, in more ways than one! Vicky and Johan may have met in London, but she’s from Hong Kong and he’s from Sweden. Nevertheless it’s clearly a small world, because they found me via Vicky’s brother, who I was lucky enough to photograph last year for a pre-wedding shoot.
Helsingborg, where these guys got hitched, is Johan’s hometown, and lies just across the border from Denmark. While the wedding took place in Sweden, there was a real mix of cultures – Swedish, Hong Kong(-ish?!) and British all appeared. A real smorgasbord, you might say! We had the traditional Chinese tea ceremony in the morning, then after the wedding ceremony (held in Helsingborg’s main church) we went on to the Sofiero Palace for the reception, via a gorgeously moody beach.
I’m probably known as a photographer for capturing my couples’ surroundings, but this is one wedding where the people were absolutely unforgettable. From the lovely vicar, to Vicky’s dad who totally brought the party, to the bride and groom who made sure the dance floor was happening at all times.
Thanks so much guys, hope you enjoy the photos!
