Wedding in Nara

With our Nara Elopement Packages we try to capture the true authenticity of this area.  It  was the capital of Japan long before Kyoto, and is just 45 minutes away by train.  And  while Kyoto gets the lion’s share of tourists in Japan Nara is deemed the Japanese to be more representative of Japan, the Japanese and the culture.

Like we do in Kyoto and Tokyo we are seeking off-the-beaten-path locations for our couples.  Although we can include a few world heritage sites in photos, the locations themselves will be intimate, romantic and picturesque.

While we are continually looking for new plans here, we currently have just one plan that is ready to go:

The Nara Garden Elopement Package

Nara Garden Elopement Packages - an idea

Garden Ceremony followed by Nara Park Photo-Shoot

The Nara Garden we use for this plan is arguably the most beautiful in Nara, possibly even in Japan.  We first discovered it in August 2018, and inspite of the overwhelmingly hot summer we were experiencing that year, this place was like a breath of fresh air!

It consists of three sections: pond garden, a tearoom garden and a moss garden (the Japanese love their moss!), so you will have the best of three different settings for your photographs.  

It sits right next to Nara Park which is renowned for its cherry blossom in spring and the turning leaves in autumn, you are sure to get some stunning backdrops for your wedding photographs.  Oh, and don’t forget the deer!

The ceremony itself takes place in a picturesque tea room within the garden, and offers intimacy and romance.

After the ceremony you can have a photo-shoot in the garden, which the photographer, being a local knows very well.  Following the garden shoot, you can enjoy a rickshaw ride around the world heritage sites for more photographs!

Unlike many gardens in Japan which have strict rules about wearing Kimonos for photo-shoots in the garden, the management of this place are quite relaxed, welcoming both kimonos and western dress.  So if you don’t want to go all out Japanese, you can elect to wear what you are most comfortable in.
