So…Gotland…Visby…I fell for this island when I first visited a few years ago. I might have mentioned my thing with islands. I met my husband on Naxos, spend one cold and awesome year in St. John’s, Newfoundland, got married on Mallorca and my babies were born while we lived on Bermuda. There is something special about islands. And this one stands out especially. It has something calm and yet trendy and stylish to it. The walled city of Visby itself is worth a trip and when Stina and Tyrone told me they wanted me to photograph their wedding in one of the many church ruins in Visby, I was in.

I meet most of my couples for a couples session before the wedding day, but this time it didn’t work out as they don’t live in Stockholm. So I arrived a day early and we shot some frames as the sun set near the harbour. Stina was the most laid back bride I have met. She quickly changed in the parking lot and attended to their little baby girl and then we walked the city as the sun quickly dropped in the ocean.

Maybe their calmness comes from a deep trust and love. These two have been together for 11 years, when they met online (no Tinder then) and after a few chats Tyrone decided it was time to visit that girl in Visby. They saw each other for the first time when Tyrone walked off the ferry and the rest is history. Stina was 17 and still in school, so Tyrone quickly decided this girl was special and moved to Visby, so she could finish school. They now live and work together in Gävle and as Stina told me, they spend a lot of time together. And as these photos proof, there is the same sparkle for each other then the summer they spent hanging out Almedalen, the park in Visby.

Grattis igen, Stina + Tyrone. You rock!
