In a bizarre incident, a marriage between two dogs was solemnised in Hamirpur of Uttar Pradesh, India. 

The wedding ceremony was just like any Hindu wedding with all the traditional rituals. A "baraat", which is a wedding procession where the groom and his family visit the bride to take her home, also took place. 

The "baraat" came from Hamirpur to Chitrakoot for the union. The "bride", named Bhoori, was married off to her "groom" named Kalloo.

In the video published by Hindustan Times, the bride and groom can be seen wearing traditional bridal jewelry as well.

"It's 2022 and this stuff still happens," a third Instagrammer opined.
