結婚式を挙げないカップルは離婚率が高い!? イマドキ夫婦の最新ウェディングに行ってみた


「現在、約4割のカップルが結婚をする際に結婚式を開催していません。しかし、実は式や披露宴を開催しないカップルは、ほかに比べて離婚率が高くなるというデータがあるんです」

そう語るのは、東京・恵比寿のブライダル会社ラビータウェディングの石倉真也さん。彼らが結婚式を挙げないのには、「経済的な理由」や「すでに子どもがいるから」など様々な理由があるそうですが、最近は「そもそも結婚式に対して価値が見出せない」という若いカップルも増えているそうです。

そんな、「結婚式に価値を見出せない」イマドキの若者に向けた、新しい形のウェディングが、鎌倉の由比ガ浜で開催されると聞いて、さっそく取材に伺いました。
今回式を挙げるのは、人材派遣会社の経営者の長倉龍義さん(25)と、飲食店に勤める上村汐さん(24)。二人の共通の趣味が「マリンスポーツ」ということ で、夏季限定の海の家ライブハウスOTODAMAとのコラボで、日本初となるビーチのライブハウスでの結婚式が実現しました。

結婚式は まだ日中の暑さが残る、夕方の由比ケ浜海岸でスタート。会場となったSEACRET BOX BY OTODAMAは、普段はキマグレンやZAZEN BOYSなどのアーティストが熱演を見せるれっきとしたライブハウスですが、この日ばかりは、鮮やかなバルーンアートで飾り付けられて、二人の門出を祝う にふさわしい華やかな雰囲気。会場に詰めかけた新郎新婦の親族や友人も、ビーチでの挙式とあって、ハーフパンツやサンダルなどのカジュアルな装いが目立ちます。



い よいよお待ちかねの新郎新婦が登場! 新郎の衣装は、フォーマルなベストにハーフパンツという斬新なコーディネート。普通の結婚式では考えられない装いで すが、ビーチの上では意外としっくり来るので不思議なものです。一方の新婦は、タレントの優木まおみさんがデザインしたとミニ丈のドレス。こちらは、今秋 発売予定だったものを、今回の式に合わせてラビータウェディングさんが一足早く入手したそうです。

式は最近流行の人前式スタイル。二人は参列者の前で「温かい笑いの絶えない家庭を築きます」と、永遠の愛を誓うと、夕焼けに染まる江ノ島をバックに熱烈なキス! 列席者だけでなく、ビーチに遊びにきていた観光客からも「おめでとう!」の声が挙がりました。


その後は、ライブハウスの中に移動して立食形式のパーティー。新郎の上司による乾杯の発声が行われると、砂浜の上というロケーションも手伝って、みんなリ ラックスした表情で会話に花を咲かせていました。その後、式は馴れ初めDVDの上映、ケーキ入刀、ファーストバイトとつつがなく進行。新婦の友人によるス ピーチでは、感動のあまり声が出なくなる場面も見られました。


式の最後は、太陽が沈んだ「マジックアワー」の由比ケ浜海岸で記念撮影。江ノ島のシルエットをバックに幸せそうな表情で微笑む二人は、まるで映画のワンシーンのようで、取材で来た私も思わず「結婚っていいなぁ」と感じ入ってしまいました。



式 を終えた二人に話を伺うと、「『ビーチでウェディングをやる』と伝えたときには、家族も友人も驚いていましたが、今日はみんながとても楽しそうだったの で、結婚式を挙げて本当に良かったなと思いました。祝福してくれたみんなに恥じないような、明るく楽しい家庭を築いていきたいとあらためて思いました」と 新婚生活の抱負を語ってくれました。海好きの夫妻にとって、生涯忘れることの出来ない、最高のウェディングになったようです。

取材中、 水着の観光客でいっぱいの会場や、新郎の半ズボン姿など、今までの「結婚式観」との違いに驚きっぱなしでしたが、新郎新婦やご家族、ご友人たちの幸せそう な顔を見ている内に、「こういう結婚式の形もアリかもしれないな」と思うようになりました。冒頭の石倉さんのコメントにもありましたが、昔ほど「結婚式」 という形式にこだわらない人が増えている昨今、「式を挙げない」という選択ももちろんありですが、どうせなら肩の力を抜いて、こんな自由なウェディングを してみるのも良いかも知れません。


サンダル姿の新郎のご親族。会場に来るまでは上から下までバッチリ決めていたのですが、すれ違う水着の若者を見て、ちょっと場違いかもと思いサンダルにはきかえたそうです

今回の式では東京観光専門学校の生徒が授業の一環として、式のプランニングから会場の飾り付け、当日の運営まで、様々な場所で活躍しました

会場の飾り付けも、ビーチっぽいトロピカルな雰囲気となっています

The marriage bra, unlocking the key to women's hearts everywhere.

Fish food sold separately.

Maybe you can't grow bigger boobs, but you can grow rice!

This bra helps you score a hole in one every time.

This bra demonstrates the rise of women in Japan and looks super comfortable!

Because nothing promotes tourism and pride in one's country quite like a bra.

Who wouldn't like to eat food like this?!

The jury is out. This bra is guilty of being uncomfortable.

A bra designed by Bjork.

How romantic!

Overcoming addiction just got a whole lot easier.

If this bra doesn't stop the birth rate decline in Tokyo, then I don't know what will.

Turn your iphone on and turn him on with Triumph's solar bra. Because what is more attractive than a fully charged phone?
