Fatme Ulanova (2ndL), 20, and Djamal Sirakov, 23, dance with euro banknotes hung on their garnments as presents, during their two-day wedding ceremony in the village of Ribnovo, in southwestern Bulgaria, on January 2, 2013. The people of this Bulgarian mountain village are famous for performing their unique wedding ceremonies in winter time only. The inhabitants of the village of Ribnovo are Bulgarian-speaking Muslims, sometimes referred to as 'Pomaks' or 'people who have suffered'. Muslim Bulgarians are descendants of Christian Bulgarians who were forcibly converted to Islam by the Turks, during the 14th, 16th and the 18th century.
