On May 14, 12 couples from the Siberian Federal District got married at the RUSSIA EXPO. The ceremony was a part of the first All-Russian Wedding Festival, which is held in partnership with the Government of Moscow.

Couples from the Altai region, the Republics of Khakassia, Altai and Tuva, as well as from the Irkutsk, Kemerovo, Novosibirsk, Omsk and Tomsk regions took part in a festive procession from the Main Entrance to the Main Street Stage. Creative groups from Siberia held a performance on the theme of engagement — the third day of the festival is dedicated to this rite.

On the Main Street Stage, Anatoly Seryshev, Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Siberian Federal District, addressed the newlyweds.

"Dear newlyweds, thank you for your courage, determination, for sharing this joy with us on this day, which is holy and beautiful for you. Family in Russia is sacred. In the Year of the Family, you are creating the most important cell of our society, relying on our spiritual and moral traditions. I heartily congratulate you on this significant event in your lives. And of course, being here in Moscow, in the heart of our Motherland, I wish you that your unions will be eternal, unique and for life. And that these unions, of course, have children, as many as you can, as many as God sends, preferably more. Happiness, joy, success! Thank you!" said Anatoly Seryshev.

Anna and Nikolai Kalabin from the Tomsk region told why they decided to take part in the wedding festival.

"We are dealing with folklore and decided to take the opportunity to get married in traditional costumes. We are glad to represent the region in such an event, it will be remembered for a lifetime," the newlyweds said.

Nikolai and Victoria Luzgin from the Novosibirsk region came to the festival in traditional costumes of Siberian settlers.

"We have been dating for a very long time, about six years. Now we decided to get married, legalize our union and live happily ever after. We are wearing traditional costumes of Siberian settlers. They were specially tailored for us. They were worn in the Novosibirsk region — bright and colorful," said the young family.

The couples were handed the flame of the All-Russian Family Hearth "Heart of Russia", which was lit at the RUSSIA EXPO on January 23. The ceremony ended with a festive concert — the ensemble "Obereg" from the Irkutsk region, the collective "Radonitsa" from the Novosibirsk region and other artists performed for the newlyweds. In particular, the Chadan Drama Theater of the Republic of Tuva presented an excerpt from the play "Nomad's Wedding", and the folklore ensemble "Arrow" from the Altai region performed a wedding song recorded during folklore expeditions.

The All-Russian Wedding Festival at the RUSSIA EXPO is being held for the first time. It started on the Red Hill (Second Sunday of Easter), May 12, when the largest mass simultaneous marriage ceremony took place. 151 couples took part in it. During the week — until May 19 — there will be thematic days dedicated to the stages of the wedding rite and various customs. Each of them will be linked to the traditions of Russia's regions and peoples.
