An Armenian wedding procession makes its way to the church. First are the musicians. They are followed by the bridegroom, accompanied by a young man with a sabre. Then come the groom’s father, priest, and women of the party, including the bride dressed in red. Candle bearers walk before the bride and the groom; the couple will keep the candles after the marriage.
