Wedding on a jet plane

Handout picture released by the Vatican press office Osservatore Romano showing Pope Francis (right) marrying Latam airline flight attendants Paula Podest (center) and Carlos Ciuffardi (foreground) during the flight between Santiago and the northern city of Iquique on Thursday, as their witness, Chilean businessman and one of the owner of the airline, Ignacio Cueto (2-left), looks on. 

Pope Francis married the couple aboard the papal plane as it flew over Chile on the third day of his South American trip. The Chilean couple married in a civil ceremony in 2010 but were never formally wed in the eyes of the Catholic Church.
