Customs aside, it is seen as the respectfull thing to do after you have been registered by the city council to visit monuments and places of importance, as husband and wife. Originally our destionatons were the earthquake monument, the catholic church, and my university. The first location made the list because we both felt the need to pay respect for our city and its citizens, and also because not a single marriage in Tashkent goes by without visiting this site. It also helps that it continues to become a gorgeous park with pines, waterfalls and picturesque landscapes. So there I was tropping on the bright green grass in my sparkling white dress. The girls later helped me pick out leaves and pines cones that got entagled in the massive layers of net and material. It was however totally worth it as the most gorgeous wedding pictures were shot there:

We continued on to the catholic church, its sharp profile against the blurry city has always beckoned me, and although I am not catholic I was drawn to this building. An atypicall location, it has proved to be a great place to shoot the most romantic and yet gothic pictures of the day. A website later quoted that after the pictures we had there, the brides of Tashkent are sure to put the catholic church on their “places-must-go-to” wedding list. And they wouldn’t be wrong…
