Noreen contacted me about a month back looking for a wedding photographer to capture her and her husband’s second big day. She and Simon had been married back in L.A. and were flying to Korea to have a traditional Korean ceremony for some members of Simon’s family that missed the wedding in the States. A Korean traditional wedding was something I had always wanted to photograph, and I was almost as excited as they were to be a part of this day. The ceremony was held in the picturesque grounds of Yongin Folk Village, about an hour out of Seoul.
Noreen, a self confessed lover of weddings, was just as excited this time around! After the bridal preparations, we made our way out into the town square. Just like Korean weddings of old it was open to the whole village, and the ceremony drew quite a crowd. Some even followed us for the entire procession into and around the main village.
While the family enjoyed a walk around the village, we snuck off to make a few more portraits before our time at the village came to an end. Noreen and Simon even whipped out the Gangnam Style dance in their Hanboks.
Thanks again, Noreen and Simon, for a great day. All the best and look forward to hearing about your next wedding!
