Nearly 2,000 Brazilian couples have got married at an indoors sports venue in Rio de Janeiro, in the biggest mass wedding in the city's history.

The annual event, promoted by the local authorities, is aimed helping low-income couples who cannot afford to pay for a wedding.

The authorities in Rio booked special commuter trains for the couples and their guests.

An estimated 12,000 people attended the ceremony at the Maracanazinho arena.

Couples with a monthly family income of up to $1,000 (£640) were allowed to take part.
