In the evenings around Boat Quay you will see bridal couples having their pictures taken. These couples are not yet married and in a number of cases the bride is not wearing her actual wedding dress. These pictures will form the basis for a book of pictures of the couple on display at the wedding.
Although I don't agree with the vast quantities of money that are spent on weddings, this is one custom that I will probably incorporate into my own one day. Because the pictures are taken before the wedding day itself there is less pressure to "hurry up" for the waiting guests.
