What is “Wind Church”?
The Church of the Wind was built in 1986 in the garden of the Rokko Oriental Hotel on the slopes of Mt. Rokko, designed by Tadao Ando. Together with the Church of Water (Hokkaido) and the Church of Light (Osaka), it is one of Tadao Ando’s “Church Trilogy,” and it is known as the first church architecture he worked on.
Said to have been influenced by the French Abbey of Senanque, the simple architecture that makes the most of materials is one of the characteristics of Mr. Ando’s work, such as the semi-transparent glass colonnade and the exposed concrete chapel with few decorative elements. creates a sacred space.

Church of the Wind Creative Wedding Photo Overview
Capture artistic moments in fantastic spaces such as Tadao Ando’s Church of the Wind
In this new plan, the bride and groom work together to create a concrete image from the preparation stage, and each photo is artistically created and shot while consulting on costumes, scenes, productions, etc.
Traditional wedding photos are often photos that are an extension of the bride and groom’s daily life, but in this plan, we will shoot an extraordinary and artistic moment in a special place called the Church of the Wind. .
For example, in conventional wedding ceremonies and photo weddings, the bride and groom first start by selecting costumes, but in this plan, we consult with the planner and photographer about what kind of photo we want to finish, and we choose costumes and accessories according to the image. I will decide with professionals involved. The attraction of this plan is that you can meet yourself that even the bride and groom themselves did not know until now by taking pictures from the preparation stage with experienced staff.
The shooting locations include the mysterious space of the Church of the Wind, the nature and architecture of Mt. Rokko, and the night view of Kobe, which is said to be worth 10 million dollars. I will leave one scene that cannot be shot at the wedding ceremony.
