James and Chloe Lusted have been married since 2016.
They are based in the UK and come from the same hometown.
Together they feature in the new Guinness World Records 2023 edition, and on 2 June 2021, they broke the record for the greatest height differential of a married couple (different sexes/taller woman) 🙌
With James standing at 109.3 cm (3ft 7 in) and his wife Chloe being 166.1 cm (5ft 5.4 in), the couple has 56.8cm – almost 2 ft (1ft, 10 in) – between them.
“Being 3 ft 7 is tricky sometimes. But I can do everything you can do, just in a different way.”
Chloe admitted that in the past she had been attracted to taller men – but that all changed when she met James.
“There is someone out there for everyone, and it perhaps won’t be who you imagine,” she said.
“I hope that our love story teaches others that you can never judge a book by its cover and everyone has their own personal story underneath what they look like.”
When the couple visited Llyn Geirionydd, close to Llanrwst, James proposed, and of course she said yes! With a reception at the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, they were wed at the Marble Church in Bodelwyddan.
James even ordered a specially designed step ladder so he could propose to his fiancée while standing on it. In Colwyn Bay, the couple resides.
