Beautiful Persian Grand Hotel Stockholm Wedding | Viva La Wedding

My goodness me, this is SUCH an elegant wedding.

Thrilled to be sharing this delightful Persian wedding with you today, which took place in the beautiful and elegant backdrop of The Grand Hotel in Sweden.

Meet the beautiful Mahta and her stylish husband Shahab David who married in summer last year after a surprise proposal in Spain

The style, the laughter, the elegance, the detail, the fashion, the flowers. The backdrop. The bridesmaids, the gents in tuxedos, the champagne gold, the decor, and in true Iranian style with such pure unadulterated joy. Mahta and David, you have stolen my heart.

What a wedding! Every detail of Mahta and David’s wedding day had been planned to perfection with fabulous flowers and decor, wonderful food and an incredible party atmosphere.

One of the lovely things about destination weddings is that we often get to spend a bit more time with the couple and capture some more informal shots. We had a pre-wedding shoot in and around the centre of Stockholm with Mahta and Shahab and the images really are stunning! I adore their chic, chilled-out style! Viva La Wedding

Over to Mahta for the delicious details!

The Proposal


We went on a long weekend to one of our favourite cities in Europe; Barcelona.

I thought it was just a regular holiday.

Little did I know that my, future husband, was about to propose. He took me to a romantic place, The Montjuïc Magic Fountain, and proposed in front of several thousand people. (Nu Bride: Wow! Brave man) We had been together for several years and we both knew that we were meant to be together and that we wanted to spend our lives together, but I was really surprised anyway!

Coming Together

We both love to enjoy a good party and have fun with a touch of elegance and we both think that our wedding was the perfect wedding for us because it encompassed all of that.

We had a lot of support from our family who helped us with adding our important cultural details

The Dress:

We went to NYC during the winter break the summer before the wedding. I had no intention of finding my dress abroad, but I was also disappointed with the dresses that I had seen in Stockholm. None of them were perfect. In NYC we stayed at a hotel really near a bridal shop (can’t remember its name) and I went in and ended up spending around 5 hours in that shop. I did not have any particularly dress in my mind, but when I tried my dress on I knew it was the right one. Before trying the dress, I thought that the “perfect dress” was just a myth, but then I realised that the “perfect dress” really did exist!

The suit:

David chose to go for a fashionable bespoke suit. Tailor made in Stockholm. The shop were great, they helped him choose the right colour and details that would match my dress.

We chose Viva La Wedding as our wedding and videographers and of course we would absolutely recommend them.

Mahta and David chose to honour one of the Swedish tradition of bride and groom meeting privately before the ceremony.

My favourite moment of your wedding day, was when I saw my husband for the first time that day. We couldn’t help ourselves so we started to cry. It was truly a special moment.

Our ceremony was magical.

It was so beautiful, and yet so relaxed. We were surrounded with people who were really close to us.

The funniest moment of your wedding day had to be the speech given by Davids siblings.

They had made a movie with a song that was hilarious.

Challenges and Triumphs

Challenges: The food. We really wanted to serve Persian food with a Persian chef and it was hard to convince Grand Hotel Stockholm to let us bring a chef from outside, but after a time, they finally let us. (Nu Bride: Great to hear!)

Triumphs: We received such great service from Grand Hotel Stockholm. They helped us with everything.

My tips would be to take time to plan, but don’t overplan it.

Relax on your special day. It doesn’t matter if everything does not turn out the way you had it in mind, it will be perfect anyway and there is nothing you can do about it.
