Asian couples marry on lucky 11/11/11
Couples across Asia tied the knot today in the belief that the "11/11/11" date is the most auspicious in a century.
November 11 has been celebrated as an unofficial "singles' day" since the 1990s -- as the date is composed of the number one -- and it is seen as a good day to marry and leave the single life behind.
But this year is viewed as particularly special because the year also ends in the number 11.
From Melbourne to Beijing and Kyrgyzstan, Asian couples are tying the knot today in a blissful frenzy of weddings. We bring you some of the pictures.
