A Singapore couple have tied the knot in an incredible Liverpool-themed wedding ceremony.

Henry Han and Eileen Siaw first crossed paths in 2001 at a meeting of the official Liverpool supporters' club in Singapore, of which they are both members.

And, just over 10 years after first meeting, Henry and Eileen decided to tie the knot on February 25 at a gala Liverpool-themed ceremony at the Regent Hotel in Singapore.

Friends and family donned Liverpool replica kits and held scarves aloft as the couple walked down the aisle to Anfield anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone".

It only seems fair to allow Eileen to explain their story as they have written on their YouTube video.

She wrote: "We are Liverpool fans living in singapore some 6823.5 Miles from the city of Liverpool.

"In late 2001, thought our support for our beloved team, we met each other @ Official Liverpool FC Fanclub Singapore Branch. What follow was a courtship unlike other couples. Our dates were watching Liverpool FC together every weekend. Everywhere we go, we were dressed up in idential LFC tops.

"When we finally decide to take the path to marriage, our wedding had to be LIVERPOOL FC-inspire theme. Our friends would come in their soccer jerseys. This clip shows our first march in which was very unique as we walk in with the theme song – 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. A song that symoblises our baby steps in courtship to being husband and wife.

"We hope by sharing this video here, 1) Shows that it possible to meet your other half @ a soccer game screening. 2) It makes your dates more fun as you talk about Liverpool and buy Liverpool !! 3) We hope that by sharting this video, John W. Henry and others in Liverpool FC would feel the love of the club from the fans in SINGAPORE and ASIA as a whole.

"Hope whoever see this video, please share with your fellow Liverpool fans. YNWA"

The newlywed couple are now ready to have their honeymoon in Liverpool and hope to attend the Reds' clash with Fulham at Anfield next month.
