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.

And it seems that finding a suit to fit him was quite literally a tall order! But they managed it in the end :) Apparently, the clothes he's wearing are the height of fashion at the moment! Ok ok, that's enough, I know :)

Congratulations to Sultan Bey on getting married! I watched a documentary on him around 5 years ago, & I remember even back then that he was saying his biggest wish was to find a wife, but it was proving difficult due to his size (or should I say height, lol). Anyway, I'm so happy to hear that his dream has finally come true, because he really is a genuinely nice guy, who despite all the difficulties he's endured, just NEVER stops smiling! He is someone to look up to, in more ways than one :)
