Linn and David were married by a lake deep in the forests of Sweden. The occasion was classic, so utterly romantic and captured beautifully by Lina Nydahl Photography. So much thought went in to every detail of this elegant wedding that was not only Swedish inspired but spanish too! Luckily, the stunning bride herself tells us all about it.
I proposed to David on a warm September night, in the middle of the old arch Puerta de Alcalá in Madrid, without having thought for a minute about the wedding itself.
After spending nearly five of our ten years together in Spain, we instantly knew our second homeland had to play an important part in the celebration. What if we could combine it with all the little things we love about Sweden?
Said and done, after visiting a handful of venues and dozens of churches, we stumbled upon Hedenlunda Castle. A place that wasn’t just stunning in its quiet elegance, but also able to deliver first class food from local produce, imported wine made from our favorite Spanish grapes, and accommodate the entire guest-list overnight.

We wanted the flower arrangements to look as if they could have been picked right off the grounds, and combined a lot of green leaves from the parks surrounding the castle with traditional garden-flowers such as dahlia, snapdragon, hydrangea and lavender. All in the same dusty pastel color scheme as the bridesmaid’s dresses and the bride’s bouquet. Pinky-peachy David Austin roses were used as a detail to tie the wedding party together.
After a long dinner lined with loving speeches and a couple of spontaneous performances, a dear friend who is also a DJ entered the booth and we moved on to dancing. The Bollywood routine I learned at the hen-party a few weeks earlier was an immediate success. David and I were the last ones to leave the floor.
