A marriage made in the Han Dynasty
The bridegroom and bride proposed a wedding toast by sitting left-to-right according to Han customs during the service in Gansu, capital of Northwest China's Lanzhou province on May 22, 2011. The drinking of "Jin wine" is a traditional custom held by Han people which means respect to each other, and a loyalty to married life ever after, sharing sweetness and bitterness. [Photo/CFP]
