Love is in the air as we tour Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France and see wedding photo sessions on the cathedral grounds. My shots are quick little snaps from quite a distance and just for giggles and kicks.
Every day of the year, masses, vespers and the sacrament of reconciliation are celebrated at Notre-Dame de Paris. Since the cathedral is no longer a parish, baptisms, marriages and funerals are no longer held there. Even though weddings are no longer performed in the cathedral, it doesn’t stop brides from using the grounds to jazz up their wedding photos.
Unlike Minnesota or South Dakota, only brides and grooms appear to be photographed as no bridesmaids or groomsmen can be seen anywhere.
Although he was quite close to the action, I believe this photographer is a tourist since the real photographer was shooting Canon and orchestrating the posing.
Is he wearing flip-flops? Might as well be comfortable.This photographer carries flowers, brides arm and his camera is under the flowers. What a guy!
Pigeons are plentiful around the cathedral. Bread for sale…
The line to enter the Cathedral of Notre Dame moves faster than it appears.
Gypsies are known to run begging, pick-pocket and other scams in the Paris tourist areas and metro. This little lady is working the line for the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Construction began in 1163, and Notre-Dame would be completed some 100 years later, in 1272. Click on the link for more information – The Official Notre Dame website.
