Chaille & Peter kontaktade mig ifrån Australien då de planerade sitt bröllop här i Sverige. De bor i Melbourne men Peter kommer från Göteborg. Han brukade spendera somrarna i föräldrarnas stuga på Tjörn. Detta var även platsen för deras bröllop.
Peter & Chaille gifte sig på årets varmaste dag… ja det var verkligen tok varmt för att vara en svensk sommar. Australiensarna undrade varför Chaille och Peter bett dem packa ner varma kläder, till den vanligtvis oberäkneliga och kalla svenska sommaren. Det var faktist så varmt att jag brände mig när jag satte kameran mot kinden.
Peter började dagen med ett uppfriskande och lugnande bad i havet & han avslutade den på samma sätt efter bröllopsmiddagen på Djupviks badhus. Vilket underbart sätt att avsluta en bröllopsmiddag i den svenska sommarkvällen.
Vigseln hölls i Pilane skulpturpark. Det var här Peter först förstod att Chaille hade det där lilla extra och att han ville spendera mycket mer tid vid hennes sida.
Chaille kom till Göteborg med jobbet och stannade I tre månader… det var allt som behövdes för att den här fina kärleks historian skulle ta sin början.
What Chaille & Peter thought of there wedding day
It was hot ! Especially for a Swedish summer. Peter’s family were staying in their summer house and my family, who had flown in from Australia, were in another house around the corner. The ceremony was at Pilane on the top of a hill overlooking the island. As Peter and I made our way up to the guests, our daughter lost her shoe and Peter had to run back to search along the path. It was a sense of relief and joy when we made it to the top to see all our friends and family cheering us on! After the ceremony there were celebrations in the park. Before moving onto our reception at Djupvik Badhus where we ate, drank and danced as the sun set.
The most important thing while we were planning our wedding & where we got our inspiration?
We knew we wanted to get married on Tjorn where Peter spent his summers as a child. Because we live in Melbourne, all the planning was via email and a few Skype calls. But all our plans were not to be and upon arrival in Sweden, the venue was cancelled. We had to start from scratch with 2 weeks to go. With the help of our celebrant and some quick thinking, we planned what was to be our perfect day. Pilane Skulptur Park was a special place to us so we chose to get married there.
The best memory from our wedding day?
For me, it was having both our families there smiling and dancing on the deck as the sun set. Our families are scattered across two continents so it will probably be one of the only times all of us will be together. I will also remember Peter all spruced up with a big grin on his face!
Our best advice to future wedding couples
Even though we had to plan our special day in less than 2 weeks, it turned out to be so much better than we ever thought. Don’t be afraid to follow your heart and be happy for change, you never know what will happen!
Our Wedding photographer
The BEST decision I made from Australia was choosing Cattis as our photographer. Naturally when I read she had lived in Australia, I felt like she would have a true understanding of the Aussie way, whilst also knowing the Swedish way. From the moment we met in Göteborg, Peter and I felt that her calm manner and talent behind the lens would translate into beautiful pictures of our wedding day – and it did.
