John and Sara were married at Cafe Oceanen in Majorna, Gothenburg on 4th August 2012.
I much prefer the Swedish tradition of bride and groom arriving at a ceremony together. Instead of the English tradition where photographs take place during the reception with a real sense of time pressure, I was able to take an hour or so with John and Sara to visit a few locations in the area from the traditional Majorna streets to some edgy grafitti backdrop via some views of the harbour and even a flea market on our way.
Like the formal shoot, the ceremony and reception were wonderfully laid back with the emphasis on everyone having a good time of it. And of course, like all good Swedish weddings, there’s the usual flood of speeches and tributes and some first rate dancing to finish.
