A total of 10 couples in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, took part in an eye-catching wedding ceremony at the Hangzhou Paradise Amusement Park on Sunday.
The term ‘naked wedding’ refers to a marriage born from love and without the material pre-requisite of financial security, normally shown by the purchasing of a house and car.
Yet, these 10 couples interpreted the expression in its most literal sense, stripping down to their underwear and covering themselves in body paint before pledging their eternal love, according to posts on Weibo.
The age of the couples ranged greatly, from some who had only just turned 20, to another couple who had been betrothed for eight years.
This unconventional ceremony comes only a week after cross-dressing couples proposed in public to celebrate White Valentine’s Day in Wuhan, and may just be a contender for strangest wedding attire, competing with the likes of dresses made from toilet paper and 70 gold bracelets.
Keep doing you, China.
