A really, really, really big day !!

The world's tallest man married a woman about two-thirds his height and half his age, holding a traditional Mongolian ceremony with great fanfare at the tomb of Kublai Khan in Inner Mongolia.

Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9 herdsman, met his bride this year after searching high and low, sending advertisements around the world. It turns out he didn't have to look far. Xia Shujian, a 5-foot-6 saleswoman, hails from his hometown of Chifeng.

Bao, 56, wore a specially designed light-blue gown topped with a gold vest, and he rode to his 28-year-old bride's camp in a cart pulled by two camels.
