Before meeting Miss Dibo, Mr Kosen had spoken of his difficulties in finding a partner, as most potential girlfriends were put off by his size.
But yesterday the part-time farmer, who had ordered a custom-made suit and size 28 shoes for his wedding, said he was thrilled to have found ‘the person for me’.
As the world’s tallest man, 8ft 3in Sultan Kosen despaired of finding a soulmate who would prove a perfect fit.
So the gentle giant says it’s nothing short of a miracle that he has met his love match in Merve Dibo.
And despite a height difference of 2ft 7in, Mr Kosen, 30, celebrated the biggest day of his life yesterday – tying the knot with his 20-year-old bride in his native Turkey.
He added: ‘It was unfortunate that I could not find a suitable girl of my own size. But now I will have my own family and private life.’
