The lady in the last photo looks timeless but her husband gives her away with his look. The clothes are beautiful, but the last photo is my favourite with the clothes.

Thanks to all Wordless Wednesday participants for your visits and kind compliments. It was a real wedding amongst many during my visit to Meiji Jingu. I witnessed 5 or 6 wedding processions within 2 hours.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures. Your shots are stunning. What camera would you recommend for a beginner?

Hi rmgales, I would recommend a Nikon D60 with the kit lens if you are just starting up. :)
