On June 22, 2008, 130 couples gathered in Linshanpi, Taipei, to be married in a mass beach wedding ceremony.

The event was organized by the Taipei County Government and Tourism Agency, in hopes of promoting the local beaches as a great place for a wedding ceremony.

“This place has nice scenery, and it is romantic to get married with so many couples. I am happy,” said bridegroom Chen Chia-hong.

“I like weddings with a relaxing style, and I like beaches,” added bride Kao Ya-ying.

The local government has been sponsoring large weddings since 1970, in a continued effort to keep couples from spending large amounts of money on individual ceremonies.
