A couple from war-torn Ukraine have celebrated a symbolic wedding amid the ongoing conflict with Russia, which has claimed many lives and reduced Ukrainian towns to ashes. The couple exchanged vows while wearing military uniforms rather than white dresses and tuxedos.
A video posted to Twitter shows the newlyweds walking out of a church, spreading cheers and smiles.

“Ukrainian weddings these days. No white dresses or tuxedos but lots of love and happiness,” the official said in his tweet.
The bride appears in the video wearing a veil over her camouflage outfit, and the groom is also seen wearing a uniform. As music plays in the background and guests applaud the happy couple, the husband picks up his bride and walks around.
