Day 4, Saturday (Part 2 of 4): Wedding – Ceremony
Apart from the relatives and friends a lot of people from the town joined the congregation in front of the church. A miners’ band was to play music as Gabi and Ági are its members. Everyone was waiting for the bride.
With the arrival of the bride everyone moved into the church. The ceremony included a complete Roman Catholic service, long sermons and Communion. It was presided over by two priests. The music was provided by a choir. Following the ceremony all good-wishers queued up to wish the new couple good luck and to kiss the bride. Unfortunately, during the service we could not take any pictures.
The band is preparing to play.
