Wedding Party in the Park (Vilnius)


I took this photo several years ago on one of my early visits to Vilnius, Lithuania. My colleague and I were wandering through the park on a quiet Saturday afternoon when a wedding party came into the park. As the bride and groom (one Lithuanian and the other Irish) came past I called to them to pose for me, which they very kindly did. Not the best photograph I have ever taken technically but it does capture a moment in time beautifully.

The wedding part proceeded to a quite part of the park and had a picnic and during their stay went around with baskets of sweets handing them out to visitors to the park. I understand that this is a Lithuanian custom.
