I was struggling to write something for this post because I still can’t grasp how lucky I was to be invited as a photographer to Hitomi and Kazu’s wedding in Fukuoka, Japan.
Apparently only 28% of Japanese couples choose to go full-on traditional for their wedding.
There’s always something formal yet poetic about Japanese culture, even on their wedding day.
I have never seen so many grown men cry.
I have never seen so many smart phones and cameras under one roof.
I have never seen a wedding cake being sliced by a samurai sword.
Culture shock? Sure. It’s definitely a far cry from Melbourne.
But I still can’t grasp how lucky I was to be invited as a photographer at Hitomi and Kazu’s wedding.
