Anke is a lovely German girl who married her Swedish Viking Richard (her words!) against the beautiful backdrop that is Stockholm’s Gamla Stan, or ‘Old City’.

‘Vintage awesomeness’ are the words I would use to describe their wedding. Anke’s dress and her classic look, Richard’s swag and his sweet cufflinks, the church, the car, and their waltz: Pure vintage awesomeness. ‘Awesome’ is also the word I would use to describe the couple. Anke & Richard’s really easy-going nature, sense of humour and trust in me meant that these two were a joy to celebrate with, photograph and just a great energy to be around – and this goes from the minute I first met them over drinks, to the last few minutes I spent at their wonderful wedding.

It’s interesting to think back and realize what stands out about each wedding I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of. For some weddings, it’s those big, loud moments that stand out, and for others its something a little bit less-pronounced and personal. For Anke & Richard’s wedding, the moments that really stood out to me were the latter. In particular, they were the moments where Anke & Richard would take time out to just be with their guests and make sure they were being looked after.

I distinctly remember Anke checking up on me during the day, to ask if I was ok and that everything was going well. To be so mindful and considerate – not just to me, but to all their guests – in the midst of one of their biggest and most special days, spoke volumes to me about how down to earth these two are and the quality of their character. And these were the qualities of Anke & Richard that I found myself capturing time and time again in the photographs below. It was never forced and it’s not like I had to try hard to get those shots, they happened constantly and naturally. What fantastic people, and what an equally fantastic celebration.

Here’s to Anke & Richard. Prost & Skål!
