wedding surrounded by family at the Kyoto Hyatt Regency – part1

Only a few weeks ago we filmed a wedding in Yamanashi that was part of a Australia-Hong Kong-Japan circle around the Pacific, and this wedding at the Kyoto Hyatt Regency was part of something similar. A wedding ceremony in Hong Kong, this family gathering wedding ceremony in Kyoto that I was lucky to be part of and then a celebration in Australia.

The famous red leaves of Kyoto had passed their peak but we traces remained, providing colour to photos of the rings.

The groom had a really bad cold and was kept going by cold medicine from Hong Kong and Australia. I think he also had some from Japan – covering all bases!kyoto-hyatt-wedding-photography6kyoto-hyatt-wedding-photography7

The bride’s brother found out he was the DJ for the day a couple of hours before the wedding so after choosing some songs he and the bride spent some time talking about the songs, especially the all-important wedding entrance song.

They were so natural together, it was just a matter of choosing a couple of spots and letting them be themselves together. kyoto-hyatt-wedding-photography18kyoto-hyatt-wedding-photography19
