Swedish-Perisan Wedding at The White Palace Stockholm

Swedish-Persian Wedding at The White Palace in Stockholm

In July, right before we headed off on our road trip to France for our First wedding Anniversary, I had the honour of Photographing one of the funnest and most elegant weddings I have ever shot. Maryam and Emad are a German-Swedish-Persian couple who came to me through a recommendation from a mutual acquaintance. When I heard there were going to be some pretty big Persian influences I was completely committed form the word go and when they suggested they were also looking for a Videographer, I couldn’t think of anyone better than my esteemed colleague Maira Martins from Maira Martins Photography to do the job.

Meeting with Maryam and Emad was always such a pleasant experience and they are both incredibly stylish, so when we did their Pre-Shoot on Södermalm and they brought with them their own wine, I knew they were even more awesome than I thought.

Their wedding was no different. They started at Hotel Esplanade on Stockholm’s prestigious Strandvägen where they both got ready for their First Look. It was such a great moment to witness the looks on their faces as they saw each other… and from the point I arrived, there was nothing but big smiles. After their first look, those smiles were wider.

Their amazing wedding party had surprised them with a fantastic limousine to transport them over to Edsbergs Slott for their Portrait Session and we had so much fun together that I didn’t want it to end. It’s not every day that your wedding party, all your Groomsmen and Bridesmaids are all that awesome, and the awesomeness didn’t stop there.

After the shoot we headed over to The White Palace where the party to end all parties ensued and those incredible Groomsmen and Bridesmaids I mentioned gave wonderful speeches and opened up the dance floor. There was so much dancing at this wedding that I highly doubt anyone would walk the same the next day! Not to mention the amazing Persian Knife Dance where certain important members of the couple’s family and friends dance around with the cake knife… the couple then have to try and get that knife through bribery or whatever other means… and I have to say… Persian people are AMAZINGLY good dancers! I mean, these people have STYLE! Not to mention how incredibly welcoming and warm they are as a people. I didn’t want to leave!

Thank you so much Maryam and Emad for choosing me to capture your day. I am honoured. Here is a look at how it all went down.
