Seconds ago she was walking on air

Seconds ago she was walking on air
Now tears flowed freely, was she unhappy?
Caught on camera but not in despair
Her beau hanky in hand on the ready
Such were strange antics of a happy pair
Newlyweds on photo shoots turned funny
Distractions ahead would be more serious
Cool heads could well be seen delirious

  2. Realisation is a strange emotion when you come to grips with fact you are a changed person whether bride or groom.

  3. Weddings can bring out a range of emotions. Coolness would be quite odd indeed.

  4. Tears of joy until real life kicks in, then it sure takes two to win.

  6. Little do brides know of the "distractions" ahead! Grooms either, for that matter. Hopefully they learn to face them together.

  7. And to think 90% of hospitalizations for women, are due to domestic abuse...and to think we celebrate marriage, as if there is no danger for women.

  8. Tears of joy? Everything is a foreshadowing of the next page of the story.

  9. I always wonder if happiness can be any greater than that... truly hope that all will be well.

  10. When emotions run high, tears and laughter mingle unexpectedly. An awesome little capture.
