A Sapporo Wedding.

I recently had the pleasure of being asked to photograph a beautiful wedding in Sapporo, Japan. We shot for 2 days and I must say I feel very privileged having being invited to be there from 6am until the last shots were drunk at the after party.

Experiencing the complete transition of a Japanese bride and Groom into their traditional wedding costume and through the day into an after party with a Japanese-Scottish punk rock bank playing in an Irish pub – in Japan – Wow; An unforgettable day!

Rory & Akimi had a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony in Hokkaido Jingu but we also did a pre-shoot with them in their western wedding dress in a couple of great locations around Sapporo. This was a couple of days I wont forget. Great fun and despite 30+ degree heat (the 2 hottest days of summer so far!) it was smiles all day from all involved!

Rory & Akimi – thank you and congratulations.
