Two young brides gather for a 3 day long mass wedding ceremony in the Berber village of Taaraart, Morocco, in which 18 couples will be married, Sep. 2003. On the third day of the wedding, brides covered with traditional wool blankets and red veils go to the river together to get some water as a purification ritual. Few men manage to choose women outside their village, however, the families concerned normally agree on pairings that are not in the same family.
