Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Special Day

Bride & Groom in Chongquing, China, Copyright Chris Gregory 2008

Every bride wants her wedding day to be something special. If it can happen on a nationally significant day, it makes the day even more special.

Our visit to Chongqing in 2008 coincided with China’s national day. On the steps leading up to the Great Hall of the People we came upon this young couple having their wedding photos taken. Below them in the large square a crowd of people was gathered to watch dance and drum competitions that form part of the day’s celebrations.  Apparently girls like to be photographed in a western style wedding dress, as well as in traditional Chinese costume.
