Most of the wedding demonstration is being held in the land , but not for the Sea Gypsies. Some of the Sea Gypsies still live in pagan lifestyle and their way of wedding is not the same. I didnt manage to see and learn their wedding ceremony , but i hope i have opportunity to learn from them in the future.
