Stumbled upon a photoshoot outside St Joseph's church.

So I took the subway to Wangfujing, expecting to spend too much money shopping, I never spent a penny, surprise number one, then went for a walk down Wangfujing Snack street expecting to see some weird and wonderful things to eat…people tell you about it, you read about it, but wow, live snacks on sticks! Then I took a walk to St Joseph’s church which has a busy piazza out front with people sitting on benches, tourists exploring, kids playing…and brides and their grooms posing for photos sharing their limelight with about 10 other couples!  So this is a normal sight apparently, just not one I was expecting…

Lots of surprises, but I love it!
