A Rural And Luxurious Wedding: Elin + Kim
Elin and Kim got married on July 28, 2018 in Båstad and arranged a wedding with rural luxury as a key words. With a color palette in white, dusty pink and gold, a luxurious and romantic feeling was created in the decorations. Even the guests were asked to wear clothes in those colors, which is a nice way to let loved ones contribute to the overall feeling regarding the colors. Wedding photographer Matilda Söderström was there to capture the couple's day, and if you want to see even more of Matilda's photos you can take a look at this wedding a little later: Elegant Destination Wedding In Tuscany: Elin + Alex.
HOw the couple met
We met out on the pub during Sweden’s national day 2014, when my husband Kim was on a bachelor party for a friend. Our eyes met in the coffee bar in the outdoor area and ever since that day it has been us two. Kim proposed to me while we were on holiday in the Seychelles. He went down on his knees during the sunset to a fantastic sea view.
About the bridal wear and styling
Elin chose a wedding dress from Ivory and Grace and it is a wonderful creation with a train, combined with a bridal veil.
Elin: I searched a long time for the perfect dress before it felt right. Regarding the styling, I wanted to feel like my finest self and feel like "me". I didn’t want to look different to how I usually look when I dress up.
Best memories from the day
Elin: The first time we saw each other at the occasion of the First look at the beach and the walk up to the altar of the church and all the loving speeches. For me, Kim's speech to me was very touching and something I’ll never forget.
he venue is an old grain warehouse dating back to the 14th century, a beautiful and bright room with high ceilings.
Elin: We fell for the genuine and simple with a rustic atmosphere, but still wanted to get a luxurious feeling of the decor. We love flowers and decor in soft colors so we put a lot of effort into that.
About the photographer Matilda Söderström
Elin: We had seen Matilda's amazing pictures on her Instagram page. We loved how relaxed she made it look and the light in her pictures is magical. She knows how to highlight the couple in the pictures in the best way. Matilda is a great photographer.
