What a cute temple! Pre wedding at 正寿院 (Limited offer)

[Date: 09/09/2017]

Have photo shooting at this cute temple in Kyoto
There is no other place like this. “正寿院 (Shojuin)” attracts many people’s attention as the place that looks great on Instagram. Heart shape is actually one of the symbols called “猪目 INOME (warthog’s eye)”, had been marked on roof and pillar of shrine and temple for long time. It’s named because it looked like warthog’s eye and believed as talisman. We haven’t seen such cute yet meaningful windows.
 
And now we start to sell a package that we take photo at this fantastic temple. Photos are taken not only indoor but also outdoor in the facility. So you will be able to enjoy shooting while you take a walk. This package is served for 1 couple in a day and the couple needs to arrive at salon by 7:30 am.

HKD 500 off & extra photo book !!

[Date: 28/06/2017]

Take pre wedding in maple leaf season
It’s getting close to the end of June and summer season is coming shortly. But we guess there are lots of people planning to go to Japan in November and December for seeing maple leaf. Since many tourists go to Japan in this period as same as cherry blossom season, it will be very difficult to book flight and accommodation in popular destination such as Kyoto and Fukuoka. Moreover, each photography team is booked by Japanese customers for their pre wedding and any other kinds of photos, so dates that they can serve you are getting less and less if you order too late.
 
So now we are about to offer privilege [HKD 500 discount + 32 pages photo book] for all those give us an order from 1st July to 31st August for shooting in the period 10th November to 20th December. (*this privilege cannot be given with other privileges, special offer and promotional packages)
 

From now on, we are going to work with many new photography of Tokyo and more prefectures, and this promotion is available with those new packages as well. Autumn’s natural landscape with vivid red and yellow color ensures beautiful photos and unforgettable memory.
 
We are looking forward to hearing from you. Don’t miss this chance.
 
Hope you enjoy photo shooting in maple leaf landscape

KAFUU WEDDING temporarily stopped to accept new orders

[Date: 29/05/2017]

Let's look forward to their coming back
 
It’s sad news that we actually don’t want to write this on news.
 
KAFUU WEDDING Okinawa that we met in 2014 and had worked as partner since 2015, temporarily stopped to accept new orders of wedding packages because of planning of facility’s renovation. They announced they are still making a plan and renovation will be started after 2017 but they have not announced specific period. So we also unfortunately need to stop to suggest their packages temporarily in a while.
 
We had seen many couples and their family spent good time at guest room in KAFUU FUCHAKU CONDO HOTEL which face beautiful ocean and enjoy pre wedding and ceremony at their unique shaped chapel. So this news makes us feel so sorry.
 
When they will start wedding service again is not announced yet since even the renovation schedule is not completed yet. But you are still able to book their accommodation for staying.
And we promise that KAFUU WEDDING would serve those who already order our package with authentic hospitality. It is necessary for us to wait for when they start to accept our order after our last customer is served on 30th October.
 
Since renovation schedule is not completely fixed either, so we guess it would take long time. But at the same time, we are looking forward to the day that we can provide better package with their new facilities.
 
 We are going to miss this beautiful landscape.
 
Thank you so much for your understanding and continuous support.
