Larger than life


Anette & Per October 2nd, 2010
Gothenburg Botanical Gardens



The day was amazing! We really wanted an autumn wedding and we got it. It was a little cloudy and grey, but the nature was burning its leaves in colors of red, orange and yellow and the air was crisp and a little chilly. We had decorated the spot were the ceremony took place in the park, with bunting and lanterns filled with lit candles. It was so lovely seeing all our family and friends gathered together. And it was also the first time our parents met, even though we've been together for eight years!


After the ceremony we went down to our venue which was located right in the park. We had decorated the place with lots of antique books, brass lanterns, skeletal keys, crystal vases and the assorted cogs and wheels. I collected all these items over more than six months time, searching through flea markets and second hand stores. It was the most fun ever! The wedding was overall DIY, almost everything was made by us. Per made new labels for the wine bottles with matching made up whimsical stories on the back, and every guest went home with a different packet of tea, also with a adherent small story. The escort cards had small vintage skeleton keys tied to them, and the table numbers were excerpts from Jeff Noon's wonderfully wierd book Automated Alice - a little flirt with the fact that my Bachelorette's Party had the most amazing 'Anette in Wonderland' theme.


My mother and her husband had made the most wonderful buffet for our dinner. Sad to say, I was all too wound up to manage to eat more than a few bites. Everyone else ate though, until they couldn't move and then we had some more lovely wine and somehow managed to eat some delicious cake. After this we talked and laughed and sang Singstar and drank bubbly wine until we almost fell asleep were we sat.


We had talked about going to a hotel for the night, but we decided against it early in our planning, and it was the best thing ever to get to fall asleep in our own bed. This I could recommend to everyone!

I keep feeling I haven't got words enough to express how I feel about being married to my darling Per. I've never been one for dreaming about the big princess wedding - and I'm utterly happy we didn't had a big one - but somehow it feels like we're in some secret club now, him and me. It's awesome.
