Wasai---But where's the wedding?

On my first day in Taipei we went to Danshui, where there is a lovely park. In the park a photographer was taking photos of a bride and groom. She had on a long, white wedding gown and he was in a tux, but there was no one else around. No Best Man nor Maid of Honor, no family members, no guests. My host explained that the wedding photos are taken before the actual wedding day.In the U.S. it's customary that the bride wear her gown for the first, and only, time at her wedding. All of the wedding photos are also taken on that day. It is even considered by some to be bad luck for the groom to see his bride in her gown before the actual ceremony.
