Wedding Gifts and Guest Book

Our friends and family put so much love and effort into their contributions to our wedding, it was a real emotional affair! 

James and I felt so lucky and appreciative of all the gifts that were given to us - and by gifts I don't only mean material things: The speeches were wonderful, my mum, bridesmaids and James' best man had all put together amazing videos for us, my cousins performed two beautiful songs, my brother Peter and James brother Carl were brilliant as the toastmasters, and so on... it was overwhelming.

We also gave and received some tangible things of course, here are a few of them:

We gave little thank-you gifts in these sweet bags to our bridesmaids and groomsmen...

For my bridesmaids I got freshwater pearl bracelets from notonthehighstreet.com...

which I personalised by attaching a silver letter charm.

One of my bridesmaids Tove gave me this awesome book at the wedding, it's about all the fun we had at my Swedish hen party, so sweet!

My friend Ulrica made us these beautiful pillow cases as a wedding gift, she is so talented! We absolutely love them.

Lastly I wanted to show you our wedding guest book. James and I came up with the idea that all the guests should take photos of themselves with a polaroid camera and stick in the guest book with their message. Me and my mum put together a bunch of props and organised a photo station at the wedding venue, and here's the result!

Our Honeymoon Part 1

While we wait for more photos from the wedding I thought I'd show you some pics from our honeymoon in Mauritius! It was just the most perfect holiday, really relaxing and fun. Mauritius is so beautiful and the people there are lovely.
The resort we stayed at was absolutely amazing!
It's called Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa, here's James outside our villa.

We had an outdoor shower!
The beach was so incredible with the mountains in the background, and there was almost no people there, so relaxing!
They also had tents on the beach where you could have a romantic dinner or breakfast.

The hotel pool area wasn't too shabby either!

The amazing entrance to Maradiva Hotel.

First Look at Our Wedding

I'm so excited to share with you the first photos from mine and James' wedding!

Our amazing photographer Anna sent us a few teasers to enjoy while we wait for the rest of the photos. We were overjoyed when we saw these shots, she is so talented and it's so lovely to relive those beautiful moments of the day through the photos.
I chose a romantic dress with a wonderfully soft layered tulle skirt and French lace.
Me and my gorgeous bridesmaids Tove, Elin and Sofia.
James and I got married at Säby Säteri in Stockholm. The weather was not great, it rained in the morning and when I woke up I felt upset that we wouldn't be able to get married outside. But James organised the back-up plan of having the ceremony in Säby's beautiful conservatory, and it ended up being even better than the original plan! The ceremony was just amazing, it was perfect and everything we had hoped for.

Hello From Under the Sea!

James and I have been scuba diving here in Mauritius, James did the open water course and I took the advanced diver certificate. I just love the sea and all its creatures, it's so amazing to be part of a whole different world!
