Couple investigated for using 350 girls for their wedding train, 250 for carrying 2-mile long wedding gown, 100 as flower girls


A Sri Lankan couple with the bride putting on the longest wedding gown, staged a mind blowing wedding by using hundreds of school children for the ceremony are now being investigated. According to Sri Lanka's local media reports, about 250 students from a school owned by the state carried the bride’s two-mile train as she and the groom walked down the main road in the central district of Kandy on Thursday, while another 100 students served as flower girls at the wedding.

The saree was the longest ever worn by a bride in Sri Lanka.
It was also reported that the pupils were from a school named after the provincial chief minister Sarath Ekanayaka, who attended the wedding as a special guest.

In a statement by Marini de Livera, the chairman of National Child Protection Authority, he confirmed they are investigating the incident.

“We have started an investigation. We are going all out because we don’t want this to become a trend.”

De Livera said deploying students for such ceremonies during school hours was against the law, and violators could face up to 10 years in prison.

“What they [the wedding party] did is a violation of child rights,” de Livera said. “Depriving children of education, risking their security and harming their dignity are criminal offences.”
