100 couples marry in mass wedding in Brazil

July 27, 2014

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — One hundred couples have tied the knot in a mass wedding held in the first post-World Cup event inside the Brazilian capital’s Estadio Nacional.

The collective civil marriage ceremony was held Saturday on the soccer field’s pitch.

It was the 10th mass wedding held in Brasilia as part of the “Soul Mate” project organized by the city’s Justice Secretariat. Brasilia’s last mass wedding was held three months ago when 105 couples were married.

The Estadio Nacional hosted seven games of the recently concluded World Cup.
