    Background: Fourteen couples from eight European nations were married at a mass ceremony at the week-end in Ljubljana, capital of the Yugoslav Republic of Slovenia. It was the sixth time such a ceremony has taken place in Ljubljana.

    The fourteen couples came from all the Yugoslav republics and from Czechoslovakia, Austria, Italy, Holland, Switzerland, Norway and Sweden.

    After the wedding ceremony on Saturday in the Town Hall of Ljubljana, the wedding procession would its way through the streets with more the 2500 "extras" in national costumes from the different regions of Yugoslavia. The parade to the Tivoli Hall was watched by thousands of spectators and there, the newly weds and the guests were entertained by several popular bands and folklore groups.
