Want a French-styled wedding without traveling to France? Well, you can make that dream a reality at the World Expo's France Pavilion.

The world capital of romance, France has put their brand of romantic touches one of life's most memorable days for 43 Chinese couples.

The newlyweds swirled onto the stage, receiving warm greetings from relatives and friends seated in the audience. After getting make-up and hair done by the French team, a symphony orchestra from the French city of Tours provided the music.

The first couple to register for the event were offered a free wedding dress, and received a French wedding certificate from the Mayor of Tours. A French feast awaited them after the ceremony. And it's not too late to participate.
