A Chinese couple challenged gravity to hold a wedding ceremony on a hammock dangling underneath a glass bottom suspension bridge on Tuesday and to observe the Chinese lunar calendar "Valentine's Day".

"(It's to) challenge ourselves. It's Chinese Valentine's Day today. So we'd like to celebrate the festival in a special way," the bride Jiang Huizhu said.

The couple came up with the idea and the staff from the Zhonghui Traveling Scenic Spots Management Co.,Ltd. helped them to make their dream come true.

Her acrophobic groom Zhou Wenlong decided to prove his dedication and agreed to get married on a hammock attached to the glass bridge 180m (590ft) above the ground.

Jiang was more worried for her husband then herself as he couldn't let go of the handrail for a long time before descending.

The couple eventually exchanged their vows, happily accepting wishes from onlookers, friends, and families.
