Turkish groom Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and bride Esra Polat tied the knot in the province of Kilis in the Syrian border. They invited some 4,000 Syrian refugees to celebrate with them.

Recent data reveals that Turkey somewhat welcomed nearly two million Syrian refugees, and there are about 4,000 of them living in Kilis.

They fled to Turkey when Syria's civil war began some four years ago.

Fethullah said, "We thought that on such a happy day, we would share the wedding party with our Syrian brothers and sisters. We thought this was best done with Kimse Yok Mu who could provide a truck. God willing, this will lead to others doing the same and giving food to our Syrian brothers and sisters. For us, it was an interesting wedding dinner."

The groom said, it was a great feeling to make other people happy.
Seeing the happiness in the eyes of the Syrian refugee children is just priceless. We started our journey to happiness with making others happy and that’s a great feeling
Fethullah said, his friends are now inspired to do the same during their wedding celebrations.
