Friday Mystery Photo


Today marks a small milestone on my blog – it should be post # 500 under the Around the World category. It means that there should be 500+ photos for you to explorer. I’ll have to make a toast when I get back from work to another 500+ posts.

Most Important Day in Their Life

Their marriage ceremony is in progress. It is probably one of the most important days in their lives. In such a pretty place too. The couple you see is actually not the one getting married, these two are holding special hats over the couple who is getting married. If you’d look from the side you’d see what I’m talking about.

It is highly unlikely that anyone would be able to tell where it is, so here is another photo, from outside. The story goes that this church was built without a single iron nail. Not sure how true it is, but I kind of like it.

    My daughter got married last Friday, but not in that magnificent temple! There were floods & the wedding took place in the basement of a hotel instead of in the gardens… Otherwise it was perfect 🙂 Rain is meant to be lucky for the bride!!!

    No idea what the church is, but it’s a beautiful couple photos of a beautiful church. Were you a guest, or a photographer, or what? How’d you get to take up-close-and-personal photos of a wedding?
