TWELVE couples walked down the aisle in Hong Kong today to mark a date which is believed to bring good luck.

In Chinese culture the number 12 signifies completion, hence the reason many couples choose to wed today.

696 couple chose today to take their vows, slightly down on the amount who did so on 11/11/2011.

This is the last date this century when the date and time will align; the next time won’t be until January 1st 2101.
