A Romantic Countryside Wedding at Elisefarm in Horby, Sweden
Ulrika Hall (28 and a sales manager at Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group) and Victor Hall (27 and an account manager at MTG radio) wanted their day to be ultra-romantic and filled with love and joy—not only that they felt for each other, but that they also felt for each guest. In the wedding programs, the couple wrote a few sentences about every single one of their guests (which was also a great conversation starter at the reception!). Wanting both of their ceremony and reception venues to complement the intimate feel of their day, they chose a gorgeous countryside Catholic church—St. Anna Church in Lyby, Sweden—because they loved the whitewashed church, historic feel and proximity to Ulrika’s family’s country home. Elisefarm in Horby, Sweden, was the perfect complement to the traditional church with a personal and historic aura too. “Since we wanted a countryside wedding, we decided to have the reception at Elisefarm Golf Course in an newly renovated old barn with nice beams and a high ceiling,” Victor says. “The surroundings were just amazing with such a beautiful nature and lake view.” One of the couple’s favorite parts was their wonderful photographer Loke Roos who beautifully captured all the details of the day. “It was like reliving the most beautiful day in our lives all over again,” Ulrika says of her wedding photos. “It was like magic. The butterflies I had during hair and makeup, the avid feeling I had while getting dressed and the indescribable longing right before we sat our feet in the church. It all came back to me. I remember a day full of laughter, friends and magical love."
