Terbesh Bride

UPDATE 2016: The video is gone, which is so sad, its really incredible but here are a few stills...

 

I found this video over two years ago, it is so stunningly beautiful I had to share it again.

The Terbesh people of Kosovo that live in Lubinje, a village at the foot of the Sharri mountains, have a unique tradition of dressing and making up a bride very elaborately for her wedding day. I'm told that it's done this way to ward off the evil eye and to discourage gossip and speculation. Nusja Jone - Our Bride is the name of the song that accompanies the video documentary.
