A hundred couples have tied the knot in a mass wedding held in the first post-World Cup event inside the Brazilian capital's Estadio Nacional.

The collective civil marriage ceremony was held on the football stadium's pitch.

It was the 10th mass wedding held in Brasilia as part of the "Soul Mate" project organised by the city's justice secretariat.

Brasilia's last mass wedding was held three months ago when 105 couples were married.

The Estadio Nacional hosted seven games at the recently concluded World Cup.
