Abstract in another language

In March 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic swept Spain and sent its citizens into lockdown, a couple in the north-western city of A Coruña stood in their window to celebrate a special occasion. Alba Díaz and Daniel Camino had been planning a large-scale wedding for months, and had even transformed a warehouse for the purpose. But their preparations came to grief in the face of a government ban on social gatherings, and on all movement except for trips to acquire essential items. Undaunted, they asked guests to send photos of themselves dressed up for the wedding, recruited a next-door neighbour to lead the ceremony from his window and found another to act as witness. The bride wore her wedding gown. The event was reported by the Guardian.
