A bride couple wearing a traditional costume appeared from the gate

A wedding ceremony was on the verge of the beginning. And mediums, priests, a groom, a bride and attendants were coming through the wooden gate. The groom and bride wore a traditional Japanese costume because here was a Shinto shrine.

Although I didn't know the reason, it might be certain to wear the traditional dress to have a wedding in a Shinto shrine. I have never seen bridal couples who wore European clothes in a Shinto shrine. The bride was under the old-fashioned umbrella. They were about to walk together to the hall where the ceremony was held.
