Metal trees of Love Padlocks or Love Locks, Luzhkov Bridge, Vodootvodny Canal, Moscow. A modern Russian Wedding Tradition. Bolotnaya Park and monument to Russian artist Ilya Repin in background.

On their Wedding Day, the bride and groom attach a padlock, engraved with their names and wedding date on "the Padlock Tree" on the Luzhkov Bridge and then throw the keys over the brides shoulder into the Vodootvodny Canal. The representation is; just as the padlock is locked and bonded with the bridge froever, so are the bonds of their marriage. Signs of fidelity and a long life.
