Imagine hiking before sunrise, to a 93m free falling waterfall in a Swedish national park with sunning mountain views over the valley. All you hear is the crashing water as you read, sing or dance your vows to your partner. Let’s hike up to a hidden spot where you pop the champagne and shout out to the mountain valleys – a shout of pure joy! Enjoy a picnic after the ceremony, and set a bonfire. We continue to hike up to 900 m above water to find the oldest pinetree in the world, Old Tjikko. We could choose another hiking hiking trail and you will enjoy a private glamping tent and continue your unique adventure wedding experience with a portrait session under the stars.

About the Host of your Glamping Wedding in Sweden
I’m Evelyn. Photos last for generations.
It is a gift to be able to pause the moments in time that mean the most to my clients.
A couple of random facts about me:
1. We eloped in 2017. The sunrise portrait session we had on Brooklyn Bridge I will never forget.
2. I have flown 2 helicopter rides in my life, 1st time heading back to Nikkaluokta from Kebnekaise base camp. 2nd time between Jozi to Drakenberg mountains in South Africa.
3. If I got to choose any time on your wedding day to shoot portraits it would be during sunrise after dancing the night away.
4. You think you’ve got some really crazy ideas for your wedding day? You had me at hello.
5. You only live once? False, we live every day. We die once….

Travel: the nearest international airport is Arlanda. From there you need a rental car or train to Mora and then a rental car.

I will bring a warm water bottle.
