Welcome to our wedding photo gallery!!
We got married in Sollentuna church, just north of Stockholm, Sweden on the 14th of June 1997.
- This is the engagement page that we first posted in November 96. We also had a little
celebration at home.
Pictures from the church
- We start in the church where we have
with Rikard, the best man, and Per Setterhall, the priest, as Cristina is walking down the aisle. She is
handed over by her brother Fernando. Johan´s parents
Peder and Kerstin are watching"?
- We now have the moment when Johan
puts the ring on Cristinas´s finger. There are no pictures of the wedding ceremony. After we were pronounced husband and wife, Johan´s sister
Helena sang with the small choir a wonderful traditional swedish tune.
- At the very end Helena and Per (Bob) performed
"When I fall in love" .
It was very beautiful.
- It was time to
walk out through the church passing all the guest as man and wife! Here you can see
Cristina signing the wedding book of the church before we went
outside to meet everybody!
- The transport they had arrange to take us to the reception was a
horse carriage. We later discovered it was marked with a "Just married " sign.
The dinner !
- After arriving there was
a toast in champagne with two glasses that we should keep forever. At the table we are
cutting the cake. It wasn´t easy, because it was almost frozen....

- Here are a few photos from dinner starting with
Johan´s grandmother Ellen.
The best man, Rikard found the very reason how he got to know Johan. It was through
basket ball (many years ago..). Some very dear friends, here in the shape of
Catharina Widén, who had taken the trouble of translating a speech into spanish for Cristina, which was very sentimental.
Lotta von Plomgren spoke in several languages. Thanks for the cucuruchos glasses. Johan´s sister
Helena giving a speech.
Uncle Gustaf was the toast master.
- Some friends came from far away. Here are
Sergio and Lilia from Puerto Rico.
- After dinner there was this little thing with the "Liga" (strumpeband or suspender). The lucky bachelor who wins has to remove it from the bride with his teeth....
Much to his surprise,
Rikard got it !
