Photos from a Naturist Wedding, St. Petersburg, Russia.   There were about 50 Naturists in attendance.   13 year old Natasha and her sisters were the bride's maids.   The happy couple is joined by the bride's mother as the sacred vows are read.   Although it is all in good fun the ceremony is carried out following the ancient pagan traditions of the group.   Although today's members are Christian they still honor the traditions of their ancestors.

(please note that this site is a partial reproduction of our book Holy Nature: A Celebration of Naturism in Today's Russia which is available for sale at Purchase the Book  The images contained within the website differ from those in the book in that they do not show full nudity.   Censorship of the site based on such images could obscure the much more important message of the book, therefore a collective decision was made to present the joy of nudity in nature through words and faces.  We encourage all interested to purchase our book at Purchase the Book )
