Global wedding surge on 'lucky day'

Thousands of couples tie the knot on 10/10/10, a date that has symbolic and superstitious value.

    10/10/10 is a date that comes around once every 100 years. 10 is also a number that symbolises total perfection for weddings, according to Chinese tradition. 

    Wedding registry offices around the world have reported an extraordinary spike in the number of people tying the knot on Sunday.

    Florence Looi reports from Kuala Lumpur, where hundreds of couples have held their weddings together in a mass ceremony, hoping that the day will bring their marriages much longevity and prosperity.
