Strange but Interesting Customs in a Strange (but fascinating) Land……..

Over the last seven years I have visited Lithuania over 20 times with my friend and OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAbusiness colleague.

P8170128From being a country I knew very little about, let alone exactly where it was, I have developed a fascination and love of the country.

During my various visits I often came across wedding parties in different and unusual parts of the city.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAApparently there are very strong wedding customs that are observed such as the

wedding party visiting local landmarks like  the Angel in Uzupis, the groom carrying the bride across the River Neris (tradition used to be that the groom had to carry his bride over the 5 bridges across the Neris!!!!!).

P8170063I started to take photographs of these wedding parties and they are quite happy

for tourists or locals to do this, as you can see some will even pose for you.

So here is a small collection of photographs that I have taken and hope that you enjoy them……
