A ROMANIAN gypsy wedding between an eight-year-old girl and a ten-year-old boy has sparked outrage.

Footage taken moments before the ceremony began in Dolj County shows the young girl surrounded by older women making final touches to her oversized frock.

Wearing a pink sparkly gown, the young girl can be seen delicately touching her long ringlets as a local singer gets the crowd going.

The groom can be seen dancing along to the folk music, with his pals by his side, appearing to boost his confidence.

The singer calls on the groom and tells him to: “Leave the toys aside, today you’ve married your bride.”

Seconds later, the bride is propelled onto a stool, for all to gaze at her gown which appears to be of an adult size.
