A Kazakhstan bodybuilder has left the world bewildered after officiating his relationship with a doll.
Briefly.co.za has learnt Yuri Tolochko married his beautiful doll 'fiancée' Margo in a traditional ceremony to mark their 18-month relationship.
According to The Sun, the 'wedding' was official as it had a celebration and a dozen excited guests who could not keep calm after watching Yuri's romantic first dance with his doll.
Briefly.co.za accessed a video from the event which was posted on Instagram and it showed how stunning Yuri looked in his smart black dinner suit and bowtie with his 'bride' rocking a lacy white wedding gown.
In a video shared to over 140,000 followers across their two Instagram accounts, Yuri is seen slipping a ring onto Margo’s finger before the pair share a passionate kiss in front of a crowd of excited wedding guests.
The groom shared the footage of the unusual celebration on his Instagram, followed by the caption:
“It's happened. To be continued.”
While many people who commented on the post congratulated the bodybuilder, some wondered why anyone would marry a synthetic doll.
The marriage may have come as a surprise to many and unconventional but it has been in plans since December 2019 when Yuri first popped the big question to his beloved doll girlfriend.
According to Yuri, who describes himself as a sexy maniac, they were already deeply in love when he went down on one knee. He disclosed he first met Margo the doll at a nightclub where he rescued her from 'unwanted' attention.
The 'couple' was supposed to officiate their union in March but was forced to postpone due to the coronavirus outbreak.
