Bridal dance

During a visit to the city of Tarma, my friend and I sneaked into a wedding that was taking place in one of the small towns (Huaricolca) near the city. The couple (Yuri and Edy) very kindly gave us permission to take photos. This scene is the wedding dance, when the bride and groom enter the place where the party will be held. What is particular is the accompaniment of young people dressed in military costumes.
