Gerong Phuntsok and Dawa Drolma, from Tibet, a very small minority group in China, did their photo shoot in both modern and traditional attires and shared it on social media.

According to Xinhua, China's official state news agency, the stylish photos have been viewed by 80% of internet users in China, which would mean hundreds of millions of people.

The groom, Gerong Phuntsok, explains the concept of the photoshoot and why it has become so popular:

"Maybe we represented thousands of young people from ethnic minorities, who left their hometowns to pursue a 'modern life' but chose to return to tradition after feeling a void in the heart. I think we found an echo with other web users. As we fight for our dreams, some of us get lost. So we wanted to say with the photos: stick to your beliefs."
