One of the grooms, Rafael, who married Rafaela, told how the girls sometimes deliberately confused their fiances.
He said: ‘There was a time when we were all in the kitchen making dinner. So Rochele, who is Gabriel’s, was doing stuff at the sink, and Rafaela was at the stove. We were there chatting and they changed places. I went behind to hug her, and said “oops” when I realised I’d got the wrong girl.’
The girls explained how they all went together to get their hair and make-up done with the intention of looking different.
But, said Rochele, ‘We tried a number of styles, but we all liked the same one. It’s not even worth trying, it always ends up like that.’
