It’s custom in some parts of India to perform frog marriages during water shortages to invoke rain gods.

In images recently published by Caters photo agency, villagers can be seen attending the elaborate ceremony and placing their hands over the water-loving guests of honor.

But the formal ceremony wasn’t without a little romance.

The happy newlyweds shared a wet kiss following their “I do’s.”

In 2011, two frogs were also married in the Koppal region of India in attempt to break a drought, The Times of India reports.
