It may sound clichÃ©d but the worldâs tallest man is on cloud nine after meeting the woman of dreams.
Sultan Kosen, who stands at 2.52m (8ft 3in) tall, had given up on finding love as women were put off by his stature â until he met Merve Dibo.
The couple wed in Turkey today â and even though farmer Mr Kosen, 30, towers over Ms Dibo, who stands at 1.73m (5ft 8in) tall, the couple couldnât be happier, he said.
âNow I will have my own family and private life,â he told reporters.
Recalling his long search for love and happiness, he added: âHow unfortunate I could not find a suitable girl of my own size. But in my fiancee Iâve found the person for me.â
Now his dream of finding love has come true, he hopes to find a car big enough for his huge frame so his bride can travel by his side.
After becoming the worldâs tallest man in 2009, Mr Kosen achieved near celebrity status, and as a result the couple had plenty of VIPs to invite to their nuptials in his home city of Mardin.
Guests included a host of politicians, including Turkeyâs president Abdullah Gul and prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as religious leaders and high-profile businessmen.
Not surprisingly, Mr Kosen, who also holds Guinness World Records for the person with the biggest hands â 27.5cm (11ins) long â and feet â 36.5cm (14ins) in lengthâ¦ he wears size 28 shoes â had to have a wedding suit specially-tailored for the event.
He suffers from a rare disorder called pituitary gigantism, which causes his body to continually produce the growth hormone. Doctors believe his condition was caused by a tumour on his pituitary gland, which was removed in 2008.
Mr Kosen grew normally until the age of ten when the tumour caused his growth to increase at a rapid rate â which was only halted until last year.
He is one of only ten people to grow above 2.44m â 8ft â and surpassed Chinaâs Bao Xishun as the worldâs tallest man four years ago. He stands at a height of 2.36m (7ft 9ins).
During a visit to Britain two years ago, Mr Kosen said: âThe kids used to tease me and I found that very difficult. But now I am really proud of being tall.â
Robert Wadlow of Illinois, in the US, who died aged 22 in 1940, was the worldâs tallest ever man, reaching a height of 2.72m ( 8ft 11.1ins).
