The marriage registration center in Jinshan District reopened on Saturday after a two-month closure due to the COVID-19 resurgence.

A young couple from local Fengjing Town became the first to tie the knot.

The bride, surnamed Yuan, wore a white dress and wedding veil to commemorate the great moment in her life.

"The lockdown delayed our marriage," she said. "But it's not a totally bad thing. During lockdown, both of us became community volunteers, during which we came to know each other better. Today, we were married. My father's restaurant has also reopened. Everything is getting better."

According to the newly-wed, they can freely move in the district, with a negative nucleic acid testing result within 48 hours.
