Love is in the Air: Wedding Photos from All Over

One of the best things about traveling around the world is finding love. I already have my own true love, so I'm not on the lookout for someone for myself. What I enjoy stumbling upon is other couples having their wedding portraits done. Whenever I see a bride and groom, I'm sure to whip out the camera and snap a photo.

This couple has had 2 babies since I moved to Malaysia. I can't wait to get to know their girls.

Isn't love grand?

This post is part of the following link ups. Check them out for more around-the-world travel inspiration.


  1. What a good idea, I've seen so many weddings around Europe. My aunt was taking pictures of a couple we saw on our trip. I noticed that for most of the European wedding I've seen, the couples like to parade around in their wedding gowns in the streets and stuff attracting as much attention as possible whereas most American weddings are more private.

  2. Just gorgeous! And a very uplifting photo essay on humankind.

  3. Getting married in a vaporetto in Venice. Wow, that's romantic. Very clever photo collection! safe journeys back home!

  4. Love these pictures - you've captured some beautiful moments here. I don't run into too many people getting married while traveling although I was recently able to capture a couple taking wedding pics at Fisherman's Bastion in Budapest.

  5. I absolutely LOVE this compilation! the you really just found them all by chance and photographed them? If so, how lucky you are to encounter so much love during your travels ;-) really beautiful shots!

  6. Love the Henna, Tori Gates, and that painting wow. :)

  7. This is so true that America is more private which is a shame since so much thought and planning goes into just the dress. Those are some amazing photos of this compilation on love, weddings and their special day.

  8. My favorite one is Bejing, China at the Temple of Heaven. That red dress is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Great post, Michele! :)

  9. I love this post! We always make a fuss of showing our boys the "beautiful bride" when we stumble across wedding couples but I have never thought of taking a photo myself.

  10. These are fantastic, I'm a sucker for wedding photos, too! In fact, I was on my morning walk through Central Park this morning and witnessed a couple getting engaged, and they asked me to take their picture! It was adorable:-)

    Hope your move is going smoothly!

  11. What a sweet post. Love that you've managed to gather so many wedding photos through your travels! It's a rather unique way to capture a little bit of a different culture.

  12. I've stumbled across weddings on my travels too - once in Aruba and once in Puerto Rico (off the top of my head) - it is so amazing to witness bits of peoples' magical days!

  13. Fabulous post! It is amazing how many weddings you see when you travel and it's a shame not to photograph them. I loved the one in Venice! I was photobombed in a photo in Paris by a bride so stunning that she completely took the scene from behind :)

  14. Oh, what a sweet post. Wonderful to see such universal scene in one post. Love is in every air indeed! My favorite shot is the one in Kyoto. Spectacular timing of the bride walking in. I love photographing weddings too when I travel. I just run in my head about how many weddings I've shot in my travels and there's quite a bunch. You're inspiring to put together a photo collection.

  15. My husband does the same thing :). What love-ly photos!

  16. This is awesome! I always spot weddings when I'm traveling but I always feel too self conscious to snap pictures. What a great idea for a post though. The only time I did take pics was when I was in Cluj in Romania. Over the span of a weekend I must have spotted dozens of weddings so I started taking pictures!

  17. What an excellent idea! All photos are gorgeous, but still love the most one from Kyoto. I've never even thought of snapping a photo, but love is grand, you are right there. It always make me smile when I see a couple getting married. You can feel their happiness.
