From the calligrapher Ksenia:
Elegance, vintage touch, emotional connection and simplicity were our key words for our wedding shoot design. We drew an inspiration from our obsession with Scandinavia: it’s nature, people, charming cobbled streets, muted colours of architecture, mysterious and vintage interiors, and medieval history. Our vision came to life in the beautiful surroundings of historical Sankt Petri Church interiors and streets of an old part of Malmo city in Sweden. Our aim was to show an intimate winter wedding that felt simple yet significant, with attention to the personality of people and beautiful vintage details.

That is why we started the day with boudoir morning in beautiful Elite Hotel Savoy, in the very heart of Malmö. It was a perfect choice. It is a place with a history dating back to the 14th century, and interiors which became a great background for the first part of the shoot. Add in a beautiful couple, and all the details came together in a perfect match: her shiny skin and blush-pink velvet boudoir dress; his simple, but stylish casual look, messy yet elegant hairstyle; vintage brass décor elements, sophisticated jewelry, and the delicate colour pallet of the paper suite. All of it completed the picture!

The second part of the shoot became our favorite. Moments were captured on the streets of old Malmo and in Sankt Petri Church, where the couple blended perfectly against the beauty of the historical architecture.
