Introducing the world's most generous couple!

Over the past few years, Turkey has welcomed almost two million refugees from Syria, with 4,000 alone in the Turkish city of Kilis, all of whom are fed by a charity in the area. 

One bride and groom decided to share their joyful day with those who are less fortunate by inviting them to eat with them and celebrate at their wedding. 

​Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat got married in a province near the Syrian border last week. Spurred on by an idea from the groom's father, they opened their big day to thousands of people in need.

Food was provided to the guests using trucks and the bride and groom were among those who helped to dish it out. Father of the groom Serhat Kilis said that he hopes others will follow suit and spend their wedding day celebrating with their Syrian brothers and sisters. 

"We thought that on such a happy day, we would share the wedding party with our Syrian brothers and sisters," he explained. 

"God willing, this will lead to others doing the same and giving food to our Syrian brothers and sisters. For us, it was an interesting wedding dinner."

Bride Esra described the whole thing as a "wonderful experience," adding, "I’m happy that we had the opportunity to share our wedding meal with the people who are in real need."
