Rifdi & Aliah – vol. 1

weddings

OK, so WE are inland people. And seeing the sea is a magical, even mystical, experience for us. It kinda lures us towards itself. Like Sirens we hear the crash of waves and can’t help but go towards it. I just could go on and on about the sea…
Rifdi and Aliah are from Singapore. But somehow with the help of Instagram and the stars being aligned just right, they found our dynamic duo and then some Skype calls later we made a pact and all of a sudden end of July ended up driving towards the southern coast of Sweden to shoot our very first elopement session. Picture that – us, from Tartu, Estonia, and them, from Singapore, Malaysia, getting together on the Island of Gotland, Sweden! It was an instant click. It turned out that they were also high school sweethearts, who had been a couple forever, sneakerheads and just generally fond of Scandinavian design.

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman’s control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list

But she said, where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?

And their ceremony, I wept and wept when the official from the registry’s office made his speech and when the happy couple said their vows … Just the two of them. At that very moment the idea of an elopement took over me like never before. Promising yourself to someone, making a true vow to be there for the one you have chosen, without the need for any witnesses or a big shebang of a party. Well, isn’t it just a beautiful idea!
And then there was time for making memories…

No more words, this is Rifdi & Aliah

Love,
Sigrid

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn´t seem such a waste

Sille & Henri – wedding at Leigo
If I had to name the friendliest person from my usual daily corporate IT office environment, Sille is probably the one. If anyone manages to mess up, she's like "It's gonna be OK!". That kind of we're-here-to-celebrate-your-love attitude is what we felt that evening. But make no mistake, they didn't leave anything to chance ;) I mean Henri was all over the place alongside the decorator with the cordless drill like no one's business. Thank you guys for having us there for you!

Karoliina & Kimmo – Wedding at Glehn Castle, Tallinn
Last Saturday was the day for Karoliina & Kimmo. I will cut to the chase and say up front that both of them were a bit reserved in front of the camera on their own. I was even getting some nerves on when I got the feeling that they were rushing through the schedule. But you can’t blame them - as it was a bit of a destination wedding for them, coming from Espoo to Tallinn. It was the same story when Sigrid was with Karo on the getting-ready. The first true smile she saw from the bride was when they had a few minutes with her mother to have a glass of champagne before heading for the church. You could see the mother being proud. And it see ...
