Sultan Kösen, the world’s tallest man according to the Guinness Book of World Records, who could have also entered among the world’s most cheerful people if such a category existed, walked down the aisle today in his hometown of Mardin.
The bride Merve Dibo, a 20-year-old woman from the Syrian town of Hasaka, told reporters that she had found “the love of her life.”
Six meters of fabric were needed to prepare the suit of the 2.51-meter-tall groom, according to reports. The suit was finally provided to Kösen by the courtesy of a sponsor.
Many distinguished guests, in addition to the families, were present at the wedding ceremony.
