ANKARA, Turkey -- The world's tallest man says he has found the love of his life.

Sultan Kosen was married Sunday at a ceremony in southeast Turkey.

At 8 feet 3 inches tall, he towered over his wife, even though she's about 5 feet nine inches tall.

Kosen was recognized as the world's tallest man by Guinness World Records in 2009, and a Guinness representative attended his wedding.

Kosen is from Turkey, and his 20-year-old bride is reportedly from Syria.

Kosen told local journalists he was very happy about getting married and had found the "love of his life."
