Lan ♥ Joakim – An Eco-Friendly Chinese-Swedish Wedding

I hope you all had a great New Year’s Eve! It’s incredible to me, how fast time has passed. So many wonderful, exciting things have happened in 2011 to me, and I simply can’t wait to see what 2012 will bring!

To kick off 2012, I have a series of rather lovely pictures for you. Lan and Joakim, who met each other in high school, finally tied the knot after 7 years on a day in March 2011, and had a wedding which I think must be one of the most personal ones I have ever featured.

The wedding had elements of both Sweden and China, red being the dominant colour as it is the traditional wedding colour in China.

The couple were passionate about keeping the wedding as sustainable, organic and eco-friendly as possible. The food, the styling products and makeup was all organic. The dress made from silk with very little chemical impact and the suit made from organic cotton. The rings were chosen in titanium, due to the durability and hardness, as well as the minimal environmental impact. The location, Rosendals Trädgård, was chosen for its surrounding beauty, and the celebration held indoors in the large greenhouse at the venue. During the evening, 60 minutes were dedicated the Earth Hour.


























Keep your eye on the blog, as I have a very exciting announcement coming up very soon :)

I hereby present to you, the awesome video from the wedding earlier today, where we also get a glimpse into the photobooth and what looks like one really fantastic party… I can’t help but smile at all the happy faces :). And did you know that the groom edited the video himself?

I’d also like to spread the word that photographer Ruben Hestholm, who photographed Trygve’s wedding, is now working together with Trygve, and they now offer wedding videos in the same style as the rather amazing one you’re about to see:

Suzanne ♥ Trygve – A Rocking Wedding in Norway

Category: Real Weddings   |   Author: Elizabeth   |   Leave a comment |

Photographed by Ruben Hestholm – extensive gallery right here

I think you’ll love this wedding. Although it’s set in the summer, the bright red lips and shoes of the bride and the dark red, velvety roses make me think that the styling would be so great for a wedding around Christmas time. There were so many lovely pictures to choose from, so I apologize for the long post, especially if you’re at work… but please do yourself the favour of checking out the gallery with close to 300 pictures when you get the time! Do check back later on today too, as you’ll find the really awesome video from this wedding… But first, a couple of words from the photographers:

This couple got married in august on the west coast of Norway. They are both musicians and they wanted the images to give hints of a little rock and roll. They had chosen red as the theme color – which also underlined the tough style. The newlyweds were not afraid to pose in front of the camera. It really shows in the images, and the result is stylish and cool.














































Thank you to this fantastic couple for allowing us to get a glimpse of your great day – and thanks to photographer Ruben Hestholm for sharing the pictures! Next up: the amazing video from the wedding…

I was in a monsoon boutique yesterday, looking for Christmas presents, and remembered how adorable their children’s clothes are. I’ve raved about Monsoon’s wedding dresses earlier, so here’s a round up of pretty, pretty flower girl dresses (I really wish the first two were available in adult sizes!):
