Elaine Davidson, who has almost 7000 piercings covering her body, married Douglas Watson, at a low-key wedding reception in Edinburgh.
Brazilian-born Miss Davidson, 46, made a bizarre sight in a flowing white wedding gown and floral tiara with only her face visible, which was painted green and covered in 192 piercings.
It contrasted markedly from her older husband, who is aged in his 60s, who was more conservatively-dressed in a simple navy suit, a sky-blue shirt and Marks and Spencer tie. The two bridesmaids were dressed in pink.
Bespectacled Mr Watson, who has no piercings or tattoos, clutched his bride's hand as they walked out of the central Register Office in front of stunned onlookers.
The couple, who live in Edinburgh, where she operates an aromatherapy shop called Tropical Rainbow, happily posed for photographs before heading off for a reception at a local city cafe.
"Elaine looked astonishing," he said after the 35 minute ceremony.
"People see the piercings but I see the amazing personality underneath. We have known each other for a long time.
"We met in a coffee shop in Glasgow 15 years ago and got chatting."
He added: "We connected straight away and have been together ever since.
"I am always amazed by the effect her piercings have on people. She's an incredible woman.
"People think its unconventional but that is the woman she is and people love her for it."
She added: "If he [Douglas] did not like tattoos and piercings he would not be the one for me. I feel very happy."
One of the guests, Gavin, who runs a comic shop near her shop, added: ''Elaine came in and invited me to her wedding reception.
''She looked incredibly happy and in love. We don't know too much about her groom but he'll have his hands full with her.''
When first accredited by a Guinness World Record official in 2000, Miss Davidson had 462 piercings, with 192 in her face alone.
The former nurse now has 6,925 including more than 1,500 that are "internal" that are said to weigh almost seven pounds.
