When seven dwarf couples got hitched together in the Chinese capital Beijing, the one thing they weren't short of was fans.

The couples - all star performers in a theatrical troupe - were wed in a joint service as thousands of well-wishers turned up to watch the ceremony.

The newlyweds - with the smallest 1.24 metres tall and the biggest just 1.38 metres - met while acting in the Louzaitian Shadow Play Theatre.

"There are more than 40 of us and we live in our own community and spend our lives making people happy," said one groom.

"People can be short but our love will never be dwarfed," he added.
