A windmill under renovation, Kinderdijk, the Netherlands. Click photos to enlarge.
Last Friday, I was standing on a bridge at Kinderdijk, watching workmen renovate this windmill. On a side road, a car pulled up, filled with members of a wedding party. I watched as the family started walking towards the bridge, followed by a photographer. I took a few discreet shots from a distance, then as they approached the middle of the bridge, I spoke to the photographer (who jokingly asked to switch cameras), then to the bride and groom. They graciously allowed me to take a few impromptu photos.
Here's the happy couple, Lydia and Sadiq.

I emailed photos to Lydia, who gave me permission to post a few here.

More windmills at the UNESCO World Heritage site in South Holland.
The canals currently are filled with duckweed.
Apparently Kinderdijk is a popular location for wedding photos, as David and I saw two more wedding parties the same morning, including a bride and groom arriving in a gorgeous cream and teal '57 Chevy!
