JERUSALEM (VINnews) — In the wake of new measures implemented Sunday morning, Israel has prohibited assemblies of more than 10 people. Consequently, no weddings can take place in regular halls and couples are searching for alternative locations, sometimes even near private houses.

Two such weddings were captured on camera today and tweeted by Israeli journalist Eli Shlezinger. The first took place on Yoel Street in Meah Shearim and the second in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood of Jerusalem.

And this couple decided to get married in a supermarket because the rule about 10 people congregating doesn’t apply there and they can have 100 guests……now that’s one super wedding!
