Couples in China got married in a mass wedding on 6 January in Harbin, one of the coldest cities in China located on the edge of Siberia.

The 15 couples, including one from Ukraine, made their vows and exchanged wedding rings in temperatures as low as -20C.

"First of all, both of us grew up in Harbin. Harbin is an ice city, so we have an affinity with ice and snow. So we want to hold our wedding ceremony under the witness of ice and snow. It is very meaningful to us," Sun a bride at the mass wedding said.

The mass wedding is part of the 2016 Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival, one of the world's most renowned winter events, which kicked off on 5 January.
