Nothing could make me happier than watching one of my brides get married in a picturesque kingdom by the sea. Kalmar Castle in Sweden is the ultimate Once-Upon-a-Time experience for a romantic wedding. Elin chose the ‘Mira’ dress from my Dioresque Collection to work with the backdrop of her August 15 wedding to Anton. For me, first thoughts of Sweden conjure up toy-village castles and pastel painted facades like this one. These images are by the very talented Stockholm photographer, Erika Gerdemark . With a great deal of instinct and sensitivity she has captured the most important day in Elin and Anton’s life together thus far.📷Some background on Elin’s dress. First of all it was the perfect choice and she looked truly stunning in it. We used the finest fabrics we could despite a very abbreviated turn around time to get the gown done. The fitted Chantilly lace bodice sits a top a gathered skirt made out of yards of silk chiffon. Under that is layers of China silk and taffeta. Above left she is wearing the separate taffeta slip with additional layers of taffeta and crinoline that give the skirt it’s shape and volume.📷📷Getting into the gown, Elin already is wearing her lovely headpiece designed by Batcakes Couture📷📷The following photos are all of the portrait session📷📷📷

📷📷📷What I love so much about this image is the way it shows off the ballerina length and volume of this skirt. Paired with the stacked heels it makes for a very beautiful bell-shaped silhouette.📷📷📷There’s nothing more poetic than two people very much in love. Each picture tells it’s own story .📷📷📷📷📷📷 📷 📷📷 📷📷



📷Discovering the work of Erika Gerdemark who so lovingly documented this event was part of the fun. She not only photographs weddings but does portraits and fashion as well. Though she’s Stokholm based, her work takes her all over Europe. I have to say, perusing the archives of her blog was inspiring. Few photographers can illustrate the pure joy and elegance of a wedding like she can … . For some more inspiration you can check out her site all photographs copyright © erika gerdemark photography
