Getting Married in Japan

Comprised of four main islands and many small islands, Japan is divided into main regions: Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Chubu, Kansai, Chugoku, Shikoku, Kyushu and Okinawa. In this span of land and culture, Japanese weddings overflow with color, celebration and honor. Although filled with rich Japanese tradition, weddings in Japan are also starting to include western traditions as well into their marriage ceremonies.

Couples being married in Japan have the option of leaning towards a traditional Japanese ceremony, a western church-style wedding or a dynamic medley of both. Regardless of style or taste selection, wedding couples will have a wide variety of scenery to have their wedding pictures taken. In many Japanese weddings, the bride will change her outfit up to four times—giving the wedding photographer an assortment of opportunities to shoot the bride in an assortment of dress.
