St Petersburg to rival Las Vegas for quickie marriages
In an attempt to attract more visitors the former Russian capital will offer "quickie marriages,” setting itself up as a rival to Las Vegas with its little white wedding chapels and Elvis Presley impersonating pastors.
Soviet-style bureaucracy has been rolled back and couples visiting St Petersburg will be allowed to get a marriage licence in 72 hours.
