Very nice work Jeanette. And those names! Anna and Erik is about as Swedish as it gets. That's the main characters in an old and very well-known musical theater play, "Värmlänningarna", a traumatic love affair with happy ending of course. I guess people must have alluded to that in one or more of the wedding speeches.

Couldn't find a Wikipedia entry in English unfortunately. Probably a sign that this is something genuinely Swedish:

The couple I photographed were divorced the other day unfortunately, as you can see here:

I hope and think your Anna and Erik will have better luck.

Thanks for the kind words, Anders!

And hm, hm, interesting what you bring up! I can't recall any references in the wedding speeches, but then, some were in Swedish, and even with the ones in English I was too much focussed on the visual to have any interest in the spoken. However, I'll look up the wiki-info! Anna and Erik, BTW, also are typically Dutch names, tho not proverbial ones.

And yes, I've seen your sad story about the devastating Swedish divorce. Watched it with a big grin. And I too am pretty sure "my" Swedes will do better!

Ciao,

Jeanette
