The Shinto priestesses' paces were perfectly in tune as they walked at the head of the line to the wedding

A red carpet was placed in front of the prayer hall. And a cluster of attendants of a wedding ceremony walked the red carpet. Two Shinto priestesses stood at the forefront.

They were heading for the prayer hall where the ceremony was held. The priestesses wore a traditional costume and moved closely together while they walked solemnly. I thought it was uncommon to see priestesses who wore such hair accessory.
