|Barun and Bijuli at the wedding ceremony|
More than 2,000 wedding guests attended the ceremony as frog bride Bijuli, which means 'Thunder', and groom Barun, 'Wind', tied the knot.
The amphibians were then fed a special celebratory lunch of flies and mosquitoes.
After the ceremony, the happy couple were sent on their honeymoon - by being released into a nearby stream, along with two stand-by couples.
The "wedding" was held in order to invoke the rain-god as a dry spell over the past couple of months has hit most parts of Assam, which has led to severe water shortages.
"It's a traditional belief that when a frog marriage is performed, the Barun Devata (the rain-god) is pleased and the rain comes," former councillor Bijoy Das told The Hindu newspaper.
A spokesman for local authorities said: "The marriage went off very well.
"We hope that now the rains will finally come. The region is absolutely parched and we need rain. We didn't know what else to do."
