Bridal Couple And Shinto Priest

bridal couple and Shinto priest

The bride and groom were walking together under the umbrella

Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo. After a period of time, another bridal couple made an appearance in the courtyard of this shrine. The bride and groom were walking together and a Shinto priest was following them while he was putting a big umbrella up. Many wedding ceremonies were performed in Meiji Jingu. Spending a few hours in the precinct, you can see many bridal couples.

I thought many bridal couples wanted to be solemnized a marriage in Shinto shrines. However, the custom was not so old. People did a wedding ceremony in their home traditionally. It is said that the first couple doing a wedding ceremony in Shintoism was Taisho emperor about 120 years ago.
