Newly Weds

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, hope your Week is going well so far.
Now this is a lovely Turkish couple who had not long been married. The Husband works in a Jewelers just right of picture. It's a great place to go in the evening if you fancy a few glasses of very good wine for nothing. Infact you can leave there very squiffy. Mind you, you have to show an interest in some item of jewelry, and show some intention of buying it. The owner of the shop brings you loads of amazing looking stuff for you to try on. If they don't have what you want in the metal that you want it in, they'll make it for you while you wait. Plus, they ask the Ladies to take off the jewelry that they are wearing, and clean it for them so well, that it looks better than when they bought it, and that service is for free. Mind you, if you drink TOO much in the shop, you could end up spending between £700 and £1500 on something that you never really intended to buy! The manager (owner) of the shop, looks so good at night in his expensive suit and cloths, with his long hair tied in a pony tail, and looking the part, but during the day, he can be seen in his biker gear, with his hair down and flowing in the wind, while riding round on his Harley. Brilliant.
Well that's enough of my ramblings, thanks for looking in, and for all your kind comments and votes throughout the Year. Can't believe another one is nearly over.

All the best to all,

John Smile

They look very sweet, John, and the young man manages to look very natural while remaining formal and smart.
The vignetting is entirely right in this instance.

I'll stick to Autumn for a long time yet Smile

Love the kissing captured in V2. Well captured pair of newly weds viewed here John and a real pleasure to view!! With this chap working at the jewellers shop - I was looking at his new wife’s third finger - left hand - and wondering if he got a discount!!

Reminds me that a bride looks through the church door and sees the aisle, then she sees the altar, then she sees you. That sticks in her mind, aisle, altar, you. lol.
A great capture.
