Wedding kimono

Wedding kimono

Perfect for honeymooners: get dressed up in layers of the finest wedding kimono for a very special photo session

The very best Japanese kimono are reserved for weddings. Brides wear an elegant white shiromuku kimono made up of multiple layers. For centuries the colour white is believed to symbolise the sun's rays and white has been worn in Japanese weddings since the Heian Period (794-1185). In contrast grooms wear a formal black montsuki kimono. 
 
We can arrange a special wedding kimono experience at a traditional machiya townhouse in Kyoto. An assistant will help you put on the kimono and make-up for the bride is also included. You'll then be shown how to make vows as in a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony. Professional photographs will be taken during the event and presented to you in a photo album to take home. Lunch and a tour of the townhouse are included.
