A group wedding was held last week for 36 sailors and officers from a destroyer division of the Chinese Navy's East China Sea Fleet in Zhoushan City in the eastern Zhejiang Province. 
The group wedding began with the 36 brides in wedding gowns walking towards a warship to greet their bridegrooms, who stepped down the vessel to kiss their sweethearts. The warship whistled as the couples crossed a bridge with sailors flanking their passage. After arriving at the ceremony venue, the couples exchanged rings in front of their parents and comrades.
