It's a dream come true for 15 Chinese couples. They traveled all the way to southern Germany to get married. And the fabled Neuschwanstein Castle setting did not disappoint. SOUNDBITE: Groom, Liu Lei, saying [ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL GERMAN TRANSLATION] (Mandarin): "The scenery in Germany is beautiful. The culture is also very interesting. The atmosphere is fantastic. My parents have been to Germany twice already. That's what gave us the idea to have our wedding here." SOUNDBITE: Bride Tao Yun, saying [ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL GERMAN TRANSLATION] (Mandarin): "I have always loved Germany. Germans are very romantic. To celebrate my wedding here is a childhood dream come true." The couples are spending just three days in Germany - so no honeymoons - at least not just yet. Tara Cleary, Reuters.
