I met Karen and Jonas last summer when documenting the wedding of one of Karen’s best friends, Chloe. If you’re curious, this was Chloe and Lari’s destination wedding in France. I’m thrilled to have been part of Karen and Jonas’ day: their wedding was pure awesomeness! Plus, I got to meet again some Karen and Chloe’s common friends.
Wedding at Rosendals Trädgård
Karen and Jonas got married in Stockholm at Rosendals Trädgård. This place is absolutely fabulous! Maybe one of the coolest venues I’ve ever shot a wedding at. And it is located on an island right in the middle of Stockholm.
Rosendals Trädgård is “an oasis for sustainability, growing and enjoyment”. Firstly, the gardens are extensive, harvesting vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruits. All produce is sold on site or used in their garden cafe or their wood fire bakery. Secondly, the area has so much to offer: fruit and vegetable gardens, an apple orchard, flower patches, patios, a secret garden enclosure, several greenhouses, a playground, and even a small vineyard. And last but not least, all farming is biodynamic. It focuses on organic production, crop rotation and composting. As a result, one can feel the passion workers have for their craft: gardeners, florists, chefs, bakers, beekeepers, carpenters.
Karen and Jonas’ day started in the city. The girls got ready at Hotel Diplomat, while the guys were getting dressed at Jonas’ apartment. It was also Karen’s birthday, so the girls were having quite a bit of celebration in the morning. There was so much excitement in the air! When everyone was ready, we moved to Rosendals Trädgård. Karen and Jonas had a first look moment in the enclosed herbal garden. We continued with family photos, bride and groom portraits, and more fun photos with the full wedding gang. The gardens have so much to offer in terms of artistic creativity, it was a feast for my creative heart to photograph there. What followed was a touching ceremony in the secret garden, drinks and greetings in yet another cozy flower garden, and dinning in one of the main greenhouses.
Rosendals Trädgård Bröllop Fest
One of the things that impressed me the most at Karen and Jonas’ wedding was the delicate and delightful styling of the greenhouse venue. Karen used pastel colours, organic textures, and a delicate, nordic minimalist style. The setting created an excellent dinning atmosphere, which later in the evening was enhanced by candlelight, glass roof, and fairy lights.
