Sorry, we can’t let you go on honeymoon! Amazing pictures show 17 prisoners of a tough Colombian jail get hitched in mass wedding behind bars.
The 17 brides were escorted into a common area in the centre of the prison where the ceremonies took place
According to Dailymail, the notorious Carcel Villa Hermosa, a high-security prison in Cali, Colombia, allowed 17 of its inmates to get married yesterday to their long-time girlfriends in a mass ceremony which saw the happy couples sign up to spend the rest of their lives together, once their husbands have completed their jail terms.
Amazing photos revealed how the 17 brides were all dressed in white, entered the prison and made their way through a series of barred gates before entering a large hall in the prison.

The marriage event is part of social work in the jail as prison authorities hope that by getting married, the men will be able to reintegrate into society.
The jail itself which is horribly overcroded with more than 6,200 crammed into a space designed for 1,500, is among the most notorious in Colombia in the troubled north western city of Cali.
