Three couples already got their marriages registered

Ukraine's Black Sea city Odesa opened a twenty-four-seven speedy wedding centre similar to those in Las Vegas.

On July 31, the Odesa Regional State Administration hosted the opening ceremony to unveil a wedding pavilion designed as a Ukrainian traditional hut.

On the same day, three couples got married in the speedy wedding centre.

According to Ukrainian traditions, the newlyweds were greeted by a bandura player (a traditional polychord stringed Ukrainian instrument) and eight women wearing folk costumes and holding a round loaf.

They congratulated the newlyweds with Ukrainian songs and wished them a happy married life.
