Photographer's Note

A Traditional Wedding Ceremony will be genrally held in the Lucky Day, according to the Traditional Moon Calendar(that is originally from China).
During this "Lucky Day" which is called "Taian Kichijitsu"in Japanese, there will be hundreds of Wedding Ceremony held, and even in this one of the most famous Shrine "Meiji Jingu", you will have a chance to see the couples Just Married for every 10 minutes passing by the court.
The man leading the squad is the Kan-Nushi(the "priest" kins of thing), and the ladies with the Red Skirt are called Miko, which are Assistants of the Kan-Nushi. The couple will be Covering their heads with the Red Umbrella, which means they will avoid the bad luck to fall on them.
Mostly a mixture of the tradition which came from China plus the typical Japanese Shinto things.
Japanese traditions are always a Mixture in this way.
