Nowadays there are some customs that should be used at theRussian wedding. But sometimes it looks inappropriate and people just showtheir bad manners in public. I repeat, some people behavethat way at their weddings, not everyone! Please, I just don't want you toconsider all the Russians to be such strange people! These photos may shoсkyou.
You will read about some Russian old traditions that areused almost at every wedding. But someone follow these traditionsbeautifully, and someone... Well, you will see.
1. Detailed "Morning of the bride" under thesupervision of a photographer
This part of the wedding day is not less important than thebanquet or hike in the civil registry (here Russian people register themarriage, not in the churches). The main purpose is to seize the brightest andthe most beautiful moments of the preparation of bride for the holiday. However,often the bride turns the preparation into an unnecessary detailed report. As aresult, relatives in stretched sweat pants and T-shirts, mess and otherunsightly items begin to appear on wedding photos.
*Zhirnova* (the last name)
2. Paying the ransom
Once the groom arrives at the bride's home,he must pay a ransom for the bride, a term in Russian knownas vykup nevesty (выкуп невесты). Usually, ithappens in the apartment building, where colored balloonsand ribbons connot hide the fact, that the staircase has not been repairedat least for several decades.
3. False bride
It happens that the script of the ransom provides a test forthe groom as a meeting with the false bride. This role is often played by men.This "bride" sits at the apartment where the groom is coming, andwaits for him.
When the groom comes in, his "bride" appears infront of her future newlywed in all her glory.
After that joke the guests show to the groom his real bridewhile the false one may have a rest.
4. The bride's shoe
The groom paid a ransom for his bride. But suddenly her shoedisappeared. So he also had to pay for her shoe to find it and put on the footof his Cinderella.
Another custom connected with the shoe is a sip of alcoholfrom the bride's shoe. As practice shows, the grooms who care about theirbride's hygiene and dryness of feet prefer to use shoes only as a support.
And some of them prefer not to think about it anddrink right out of the shoe to the delight of the guests.
5. Vulgar contests
Some masters of ceremonies think that a weddingshouldn't be without uncontrolled dance, striptease, and contests with vulgarjokes.
Often food become unwitting participant in such contests.More often these are bananas and carrots because of their shape.
It happens, some pictures taken during these games,subsequently take place in the wedding album. After processing in Photoshop, ofcourse.
6. Street photoshoot
There are couples who invite a professional photographer totheir wedding and set to him the task of making the highest quality images in afestive atmosphere, which they will not be ashamed to be shown to the grandchildren.And there are couples who prefer a quite strange approach: an amateurphotographer and shooting in the most unsightly places.
