Our Wedding - The Ceremony

Happy Weekend everyone! 
Here comes the second instalment from our wedding, this one is about the ceremony, my favourite part of the day.

So me and my bridesmaids had made it through the drizzling rain to the venue, it was now time to change from sneakers into my wedding shoes and get ready to go out to the beautiful conservatory where the ceremony was held, I was super nervous and excited!

My cousins' daughters who hung out upstairs with their babysitters during the ceremony were a teeny bit curious...







My cousins Frida, Anna and Julia performed two songs during the ceremony; one Swedish song called "Av Längtan Till Dig" and "Your Song" by Elton John. It was so beautiful, I had to try my hardest not to start bawling, especially when I saw other people cry!



We mixed mine and James' cultures by including both Swedish and Jewish traditions.

Our lovely registrar Helena was brilliant.


Our first kiss!

Mazel tov!

After the ceremony James and I felt so happy and ecstatic that we were now married!





Definitely the best day of our lives!

I love your pictures! Thanks for sharing! Were the flowers in your hair real? I am getting married in Nov and have been thinking of a flower to put in my hair. If so, how did you get it to stay in?

Erica: congrats on your upcoming wedding!! Yes the flowers in my hair were real, my stylist just used some strong hair pins to attach them. They stayed on almost until the end, by 1pm and a lot of dancing one of them had fallen out but at that point I didn't really care anymore :)

Måste säga att klänningen var/är jättevacker! Och bilderna går inte heller av för hackor! Kram

I love the way the photos were taken! Anna was able to capture the special moments. Every detail of the wedding seems so great and the photography even made it more perfect! The best shot for me was the one showing you guys coming out of the chapel and everyone facing you!

I love the dress! You looked absolutely beautiful! My fiance and I are looking to have our older siblings perform the ceremony. Of course they have to look into how to get ordained online. But I think it will add just that much more personalization into the ceremony. I am so glad that you two decided to incorporate your two religions. That seems like such a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
