Mar 29 2017 8 CommentsA cherry blossom wedding selfie With the cherry blossom now visible, it would seem this year’s flower-based photo frenzy has well and truly begun.
Amazing to capture so many camera wielding people in one shot:). The season hasn’t started yet in kansai. Looking forward to the blossoms, but not the crowds:)
Yes, nice to get a few different kind of photographers in there!
Only just started here. Early next week it seems for full bloom. But yeah, the crowds…
Love it! Is that one of their official wedding photos?! 😉
Haha, it could well be!
A lovely photograph, capturing two couples caught in their own isolated moments in a busy park, (Gyoen?). I’ve long loved the transience of cherry blossoms with a single large tree dominating my childhood front garden, my university room looking out on six in the quad, and one now in the centre of our back garden.
That groom looks like his knees might give way any moment.
I wonder if you’ll see the guy from last year again, or was that during plum blossom season.
Thanks! Yes, it was Shinjuku Gyoen. Hadn’t been there for a long time.
She was very careful about getting the shot right, so he’d done very well to hold that pose til then. Pretty sure I couldn’t have.
Ah, I’d forgotten about him. Yes, that was plum. But I dare say he has a similarly matching out for the cherry blossom!

It’s a wonderful capture. It could even be one of those allegorical paintings. Here you see the newlywed couple. Reading to the right you see the pregnant mother-to-be. Third slice is an older child with his Father and mother-in-law.
Thank you. That’s a wonderful way of looking at it too. Really like that. Of course I’d like to say I planned it that way, but that would be greatly stretching he truth.
