A Turkish couple decided to start their marriage off right when they, last week, invited 4,000 Syrian refugees to celebrate with them.
Fethullah Üzümcüo?lu and Esra Polat shared their "I do's" in Kilis province on the Syrian border, which is presently the location where thousands of refugees are fleeing conflict in the neighboring country.
Hatice Avci, a spokesperson for the organization Kimse Yok Mu, told i100.co.uk that the newly married couple donated their savings their families had put together for a traditional two to three-day wedding and celebrated with one big banquet, inviting the refugees nearby.
The father of the groom, Ali Üzümcüo?lu, conjured up the idea to share a bit of wedding joy with those less fortunate.
"I thought that sharing a big delicious dinner with our family and friends was unnecessary, knowing that there are so many people in need living next door. So I came up with this idea and shared it with my son. I'm very happy that he accepted it and they started their new happy journey with such a selfless action," he said.
