Kazakh bride

The Cossacks believe that before the end of the wedding ceremony, one should not watch the bride's face. The first person to remove mask from the bride's face is the bridegroom, after the end of the wedding ceremony. The Kazakhs, about 100 years ago, migrated from the northern regions to Iran and Europe due to the pressure of tsarist Russian rule.
