From the BBC: A video has emerged of the unidentified Western couple taking part in the small ceremony at the Vilu Reef resort. The amateur film of the ceremony, which was posted on the video sharing site Youtube a few days ago, shows the couple sitting in a makeshift shelter on the beach, surrounded by local people. The bride is wearing a white dress and carrying a bouquet, while incense, official looking documents and wedding rings lie on the table in front of them. The celebrant explains the ceremony in English before everyone stands and holds their hands up to pray. But instead of words of blessing, the celebrant uses the intonating style of prayers to unleash a torrent of abuse about the couple in the local Dhivehi language. "Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage. One of you is an infidel. The other, too, is an infidel - and we have reason to believe -an atheist, who does not even believe in an infidel religion," "You fornicate and make a lot of children. You drink and you eat pork. Most of the children that you have are marked with spots and blemishes. These children that you have are bastards." The camera focuses on the paperwork in front of him, which local media say was not a marriage document but employment contracts - he then begins to read from these. The celebrant also makes references to bestiality, sexual diseases and "frequent fornication by homosexuals". After the ceremony, the couple are taken to plant a coconut tree together, during which various comments are made about the bride's breasts.
