Wedding at Trollenäs Castle
In August I photographed this fantastic wedding at Trollenäs church in Skåne.
I’ve had a problem with internet-shy couples this summer, so I can’t show you all the pictures that I’d like to show. Because of that, there are some bits of the story that are missing, but I’m sure you understand that I must respect their wishes. In this case, I won’t be using any names, and I won’t include any pictures of their child. So you’ll have to take my word for it that the kid was ADORABLE and we got a lot of great pictures of both him and the family.
The bride had joked about her father and his camera/phone, yet I was still surprised when he stopped the couple on their way down the aisle to take their picture. I’ve heard of “unplugged” weddings where the priest asks the guests to put the cameras down and enjoy the moment. With a professional photographer on duty, this is probably a really good idea!
The reception was held at nearby Trollenäs castle.
After greeting their guests at the castle, we slipped away to do some portraits in the park. Like many of my couples, this pair had expressed concern about not liking to be photographed, so we started off with some simple situations that really didn’t require posing. This helped them relax and get the pictures they wanted. Unfortunately we were interrupted when the best man showed up with their sobbing son, so we didn’t get to the more creative shots that I would have liked, but at least they were pleased.
Trollenäs castle is every bit as impressive inside as out. I’d never been inside before since it is privately owned and not generally open to the public.
