WHEN two Malaysian skateboarders got hitched, they took to a skateboard park in Kuala Lumpur to mark the biggest day of their lives.

Vina Marwan, 26, and Ikhzreen Husin, 26, started their married lives by enjoying a sport that brought them together after their traditional akad-nikah ceremony.

They met during a skate session five years ago and eventually became best friends, Vina said. They got married at the end of July.

Vina's niece posted of some of the pictures of them skateboarding on their wedding day on Twitter and to her surprise, they went viral with more than 40,000 retweets and over 79,000 likes.

"I just married my best friend that puts up with all of my crap. lol I'm happy and chillin out from now on enjoying our newly married life ... kahh couldn't imagine going through," Vina said in a Facebook post with a photo of them skateboarding.
