    A Bulgarian Muslim bride, Kadrie Avdikova, has her face decorated with special wedding makeup at the end of two-day wedding ceremony in the Rhodope Mountains village of Ribnovo, 200 kms south from capital Sofia. The remote mountain village of Ribnovo in southwest Bulgaria has kept its traditional winter marriage ceremony alive despite decades of Communist persecution, followed by poverty that forced many men to seek work abroad. The wedding ritual was resurrected with vigour among the Pomaks -- Slavs who converted to Islam under Ottoman rule. The highlight of the ceremony is the painting of the bride's face, where in a private rite, her face is covered in thick, chalky white paint and decorated with colourful sequins.
