The Story of Astrid & Isak
Astrid and Isak got married on August 18, 2018 in the middle of Sweden, the same place where their history started in 2011. The theme for the wedding day was nature-oriented and rustic where they wanted to get a mix of both their home areas, Astrid with a dense forests and Isak with north of Sweden’s high mountain peaks. With forests, lakes and open fields, the couple were surrounded by both nature and their loved ones, this beautifully cloudy August day.
Astrids own words about the dress;
I had a hard time find a dress that felt perfect. After much searching I finally bought a skirt from the Swedish designer Abby Waits, which I then sewed together with a top from ASOS, just three weeks before the wedding. I usually plan ahead, so this meant a lot of stress and a little panic BUT I finally got the dress I wanted all along!
The ceremony was warm and loving. The music was important for us and we wanted it to be a big part of the wedding. Isak is a big Bob Dylan fan, so my friend Marika sang “Make You Feel My Love” and then she sang Laleh's “Goliath” together with my bridesmaids, something that Isaac didn't know anything about, so it became quite emotional.
About the photographer
I searched for a photographer during a long time, and finally I found Christell via Sisters in Law. What we fell for in Christell's imagery was her ability to capture emotions and also how she weaves nature in her portraits in a beautiful way. We are so happy that we decided on Christell! The pictures are far above expectations!
