A generous bride and groom chose to celebrate their nuptials by inviting 4,000 Syrian refugees to share their big day with them.

The Newlyweds donated all their savings to share their celebrations with displaced families living in poverty nearby.

Ali Uzumcuoglu  and Esra Polat married in the southern Turkish city of Kilis and offered all the food intended for their wedding party to displaced families living in poverty nearby.

Traditional Turkish weddings last between Tuesday and Thursday, culminating in a huge banquet on the final night. But the newlyweds chose to donate all their families’ savings for the party to share their celebrations with refugees living on the Syrian border.

The generous idea came from groom's father, who told i100.co.uk: "I thought that sharing a big delicious dinner with our family and friends was unnecessary, knowing that there are so many people in need living next door. "So I came up with this idea and shared it with my son. I’m very happy that he accepted it and they started their new happy journey with such a selfless action".

Bride Esra was delighted to be able to share her special day with those in need.

"I was shocked when Fethullah first told me about the idea but afterwards I was won over by it. It was such a wonderful experience. "I’m happy that we had the opportunity to share our wedding meal with the people who are in real need", she concluded.
