During walking around the courtyard, a wedding ceremony started. Some Shinto priests came through the wooden gate and the Shinto priestess followed. They walked with slow steps.

In the meantime, a bride and groom appeared. The happy pair wore a traditional costume and walked together under the same traditional umbrella. Everybody in the courtyard watched them. The groom seemed to be in a tense situation a little.
