Sydney, Australia: They met in passing while trying to lose weight but on Thursday Australian men Warren Orlandi and Pauly Phillips made history by becoming the first same sex couple to get married on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The couple took their vows in front of family and friends gathered on the structure dubbed the "coat hanger", 134 metres (439 feet) above the city's main harbour, two days before the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
The wedding is a fitting personal milestone for Orlandi especially. When he began losing weight in 2013 - he was more than 370 kgs (815 lbs) and set himself the goal of being fit enough to climb the famous bridge.
He ultimately lost more than 250 kgs (551 lbs).
