Judicial sources explained this Monday the situation generated around the wedding of Berto and María, which was scheduled for Friday and did not take place. He was dressed as Jack Sparrow and she in the traditional Galician costume. In the case of the woman, there was no problem with the dress she was wearing, but in his, the sources add, she was required to remove her hat, wig and also makeup, to prove her identity.
