Last month as I was showing a foreign friend around Tokyo – first visit – we saw this gorgeous couple at their wedding ceremony in Tokyo’s main Meiji Jingu shrine. I know I have posted wedding ceremonies many times before but I just can’t help myself! The only ones who had the benefit of the parasol was the couple themselves, the others had to do without anything to shield them from the fierce sun that beautiful afternoon, hence their shut eyes!
I know, it’s cheating, but if there is one place you are always guaranteed of getting something interesting to shoot, it’s at Tokyo’s central Meiji Jingu, or the Meiji Shrine. I saw this wonderfully happy looking couple, both in very traditional Japanese wedding costumes. Don’t you just love the smile on his face? He is one happy married man!
