Emelie ♥ Johan – Swedish Lakeside Wedding

Photographed by Jonas Peterson – check out many more photos in the gallery

Whenever I plan a post, I always mull over what to write before sitting down and creating the post. This time, I have no idea where to start. I am just so happy to have the honour of featuring this work.

Many of you readers, who are also photographers, already know that Jonas Peterson is claimed to be one of the world’s best wedding photographers. In fact, I understand quite a number of photographers have a bit of a crush on him. Originally from Sweden, he migrated to Australia a number of years ago (…unfortunately for us, but hey, it’s hard to blame him!). Once in a rare while though, we are so lucky to have him go back to his motherland and photograph a wedding so that the rest of us can see the beauty of his work in Scandinavian light. This wedding, photographed at Emelie’s father’s summerhouse in Töcksfors in Värmland, features what I love most about Scandinavian weddings – when the vast, unique, Scandinavian nature becomes thoroughly incorporated into the celebration, rain or shine. As you’ll see, it’s a pity to be limited by a blog column of 600 px – many of these pictures really deserve to be seen in full screen, in a coffee table book, framed on the wall, or heck – as wallpaper.

Enough said. Please enjoy Emelie and Johan’s wedding:

    Oh Elizabeth!
    I have been a fan of Jonas’ work for a few years now. His style is so perfect for the nordic brides. It is masculine, yet so full of details and sense of place that you feel all the emotion of the photos. His images are moody, clean, rustic and simple. And he is such a no-nonsense, creative guy. Love it :)
