The headdresses and clothing is all handmade and real (and real old too). Also, the headdress I wore was incredibly heavy--I would guess several pounds.
We didn't do the entire "2 day professional photo taking extravaganza" that most nearly-weds here in Taiwan do. We just did a quick afternoon session to get some photos of us in traditional wedding attire and a few studio shots in our own wedding attire too.
(Note the red scarfs--long one for him, small one for me. I've yet to know why they were used.)
