Lava's In The Air: Couple Tie The Knot In Front Of Erupting Volcano

A couple decided to get married in the Philippines despite being in front of an explosive backdrop just 10 kilometres away.

They exchanged vows in front of family and friends as the volcano erupted, spewing ash and lava into the sky.

Local authorities issued a warning informing hundreds to flee, but that didn't discourage the pair from tying the knot.

Photographer Randolf Evan, who captured the photos, described what it was like to be there as the event unfolded: "We could feel the ash raining on our clothes, but it didn't feel alarming until night time came when it became a bit heavier and mud-like," he told the BBC.
