    RT @Shibuya246: Odaiba Gundam Wedding, Japan Photo-Post | Shibuya246 http://bt.io/8tO Simply amazing photographs=Epic Win! Great Job.
    Your photographs are the best in my book. You should set up a photography business. 🙂
    On pict.#20 the balloons in the background look like champgne bubbles rising from a glass. What an epic way to consumate your vows to each other. Was this shown on tv also? Even with the crowds, you got some great closeup of the family.
    A brillant article, thank you for sharing with the twitter community and in your posts.

      Thanks. I found it really difficult to take these photos because there were so many people with cameras battling for positions. I had to hold the camera above my head and guess most of the time. It was worth it though, because the atmosphere was great.

      I dont think it was shown on TV. It was more like a family event with thousands in the cast of extended family.

      Very well done by T&G Wedding

  2. xine says

    Wow, this is pretty cool! Congratulations to the couple.
    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing! ^^

  3. qqq says

    Well, that beats my wedding.

  4. Erina says

    Wow~~! amazing! Nice pictures! How much cost this wedding?? Zero?????

    1. shibuya246 says

      I dont know what the cost was, but it definitely wouldnt be zero 🙂

  5. Austin Otaku says

    Wow, for guessing and snapping shots, these turned out to be very good pictures. Great job!

  6. Tami says

    Wow… thats something to be envious of. Thumbs up big time for them!
    Very nice pictures and thanks for sharing, this warms up the heart. 🙂

    *sniffle* gee… a normal wedding can’t catch me, but this is just to good!! ^^;

  7. Sanjo-chan says

    Awesome pictures! I want to have a wedding like that someday, especially since I absolutely adore UC Gundam! ^_^

  8. Joana says

    If I ever got married I’d want a wedding like that. So awesome not to mention original as hell. ^_^

  9. Protocol Snow says

    Great photos! I love how the Gundam looks like he’s staring up at all the balloons.

    1. shibuya246 says

      I think Gundam is jealous that the balloons are flying away 😉

  10. Jenny says

    That is just awesome!!! Congrates!

  11. EdwinRSA says

    Amazing , Definitely this is the ultimate wedding

  12. wah says

    Not to be a jerk, but the official romanization of “Seira” is “Sayla”

  13. freedomwv says

    Another one of those `only in Japan` moments.

  14. anon says

    wow nice pictures, i’m so jealous. haha

    btw.: the twitterlink from “follow shibuya..” points to a wrong link ^^

    1. shibuya246 says

      Thanks. I tried to find the link but it seems to be properly going to http://twitter.com/shibuya246 Is that what you saw? Thanks for pointing it out.

  15. Gweb says

    Posting here, just in case you don’t see the JapanSoc comments.

    These pictures are amazing (especially the Gundam surrounded by the balloons and the silhouette of the bride).

    One question however. What kind of music were they playing at the wedding?

    1. shibuya246 says

      Thank you so much. I appreciate you posting your comment here as well 🙂

  16. alafista says

    You took really great photos even though it was an event at night.

    1. shibuya246 says

      Thanks. I dont like using a flash so I tried to buy equipment that can work well in low light. The lens I use normally picks up background colors really well so that is good also.

  17. antho says

    hi..i’m antho from Indonesia.. that was a amazing wedding ceremony.. its a Gundam.. how can i say..??

  18. Scot says

    Was this a second wedding for an already married couple or a second marriage for two divorcees ?

    1. shibuya246 says

      I think a second marriage after marriages to different people on both sides

  19. rulascalaca says

    jejeje incredible!! i´ll do it for sure…!!! 😀

  20. The Envoy says

    Finally. I’ve been waiting for photos of this event for a while.
