Wedding on the summit of Everest

A Nepalese couple have exchanged wedding vows on top of Mount Everest, the first people ever to marry there.
They briefly took off their oxygen masks and put on plastic garlands, while the groom symbolically applied red powder on the bride's forehead.
Moni Mule Pati and Pem Dorjee Sherpa were part of the Rotary Centennial Everest Expedition earlier this week.
