One of these couples Atif and Sara Saad walked around the square celebrating their wedding.

"Thousands here have attended our wedding ceremony. We could not organize a wedding with that much participation even if we wanted to do it. Small children tried to give their own candies and toys to my wife as wedding presents. Where on earth could we live such a happiness," Atif Saad told Anadolu Agency.

Officials announced hundreds of couples applied to get married in the square and said they plan to organize wedding ceremonies in masses within this framework.
