Last Saturday I flew to Scotland to photograph a very special wedding of Jennifer and Mark.

The day before this beautiful photo was taken, these newlyweds might not have looked so happy and clean: It's Scottish tradition to douse the bride, groom or both in treacle, ash, feathers and flour the day before the ceremony. This messy custom, known as "Blackening," is said to bring good luck.
