Atlas 5 Robin Bowman : Cuba

back & forth

Santiago, at the Palace de los Matrimonial. This couple has just been wed by the Director of the Palacio-Maria Louisa Soto Mayor Tase and is now posing for pictures in front of the building. The ceremony itself takes place with both families standing around a table, while the couple seated at the table sign a marriage certificate. Then everyone goes home to celebrate. The actual process takes about 10 minutes. The Director told me that she usually performs more weddings in the morning than in the afternoon, at the rate of as many as 15 couples a day.
