Wedding Photographer Fought Man For Marrying 15-Year-Old

According to a report from Strait Times, a man by the name of Onur Albayrak was hired to photograph a wedding at Malatya’s Ozal Nature Park on July 5. In the process of taking the photos, he noticed that the bride-to-be appeared to be underage and asked the groom about his suspicions. The groom told the photographer that his bride was only 15-years-old.

Albarak was clearly upset with the groom’s answer, and started a fight with his client.

The photographer recalled that the bride was trembling out of fear when he saw her for the first time: “The groom had come to my studio some two weeks ago and was alone. I saw the bride for the first time at the wedding. She’s a child, and I felt her fear because she was trembling. The groom attacked me as I was leaving.”

He confirmed the actions via his Facebook page, saying that he does not regret his actions whatsoever. He wrote, “Yes, the reports are correct. A child bride means child abuse, and no force in the world can make me photograph a child as a bride”

Turkish law prohibits child marriages, and the minimum age for men and women is 18 (with the exception of special circumstances if the marrying partner is 17).
