Shanghai couple mark would-be wedding with photos

STORY: A Shanghai couple mark their would-be wedding day

by posing for these photos on their building’s rooftop

Yang Ying and Mi Zhou postponed their 100-person celebration

after authorities enforced a strict lockdown and banned social activities

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) SHANGHAI RESIDENT, YANG YING, SAYING:

"There was this sudden emotional breakdown. I had actually accepted it, and I felt okay about it, because it’s just a matter of the date, but then again maybe it’s because we have been under lockdown for so long and I haven't seen my family and friends for a long time. So, the night before the wedding, we were reminded by a friend that tomorrow would have been our wedding day. He suddenly reminded us and we were a little down."

The couple have not chosen a new date for their wedding

but say the lockdown has strengthened their relationship
