While China’s youngest city, Sansha in Hainan province, had its first birthday a few months ago, the city celebrated a different kind of ceremony this week: A group wedding of seven couples, with over 300 of the city’s local residents in attendance.
In interviews with the new brides and grooms, they say that they’re hoping to start a life in the young city. Sansha, while boasting authority over more than 2 million square kilometers of (disputed) land and sea, is home to only around 1,000 people. The group wedding earned much appreciated publicity for the city, diverting attention away from the conflict of its creation last year.
