My best friends wedding

I have known Ann-Sofie since I was about 7 years old. She is one of my best friends and is a very important person in my life. To photograph her wedding day when she got married to Luke in Dalarö was a very special moment for me. erika_gerdemark_photography_362erika_gerdemark_photography_49erika_gerdemark_photography_64

The preparations were held at Strand hotell in Dalarö, in the same place as the reception took place. erika_gerdemark_photography_234erika_gerdemark_photography_144erika_gerdemark_photography_373erika_gerdemark_photography_103

I remember the first time Ann-Sofie told me about Luke. She was overwhelmed and had just got home from a trip to Tenerife and had fell in love with a man. She was 17 and he was an English barker, surfer and bicyclist. His number of age was unclear. 11 years later they got married in Dalarö, a small village in Stockholm's archipelago. It took me a while to understand that it actually was their wedding day. But at the dinner when I found some time to relax a little bit more, during my speech, it suddenly hit me and I couldn't hold back my tears.

Ann-Sofie, you are one of the most caring people I know. Your friendship is loyal, warm and full of joy. I'm so happy to have a friend like you and I'm proud of what you have accomplish in life.

Luke, I can't see you without smiling. You always seams to make people around you laugh. I'm happy that you were brave enough and moved to a foreign country like Sweden. Your entrepreneurship and how you have developed during the years is really impressing. Most of all, thank you for making my lovely friend so happy.

I love you both. As I said in my speech, just reach out your hand whenever you need me. I'll be there for you.
