during the wedding ceremony?

the relatives and guests of the two families. The wedding ceremony starts
in front of the altar. The bride and the groom would pray, asking their ancestors’
permission to be married. The Master of the Ceremony would gave the
wedding couple advice on starting a new family. The groom and the bride
then exchange their wedding rings.
