Love indeed conquers all for Chinese businessman Wei Tian.

The 26-year-old managed to overcome his fear of heights to pose for his pre-wedding shoot on the Rainbow Skywalk located on the 68th floor of Komtar, the tallest building in Penang.

Wei, who will be tying the knot with his girlfriend, Gong Youqi, 24, next month, decided to have Penang's newest attraction, The Top@Komtar, as the backdrop for the photoshoot.

"He was scared when he first stepped onto the glass platform.

"He kept asking me if we were done with the photoshoot on the viewing bridge," chuckled Gong when met on the tower's rooftop on New Year's Eve.

It was the couple's first visit to Penang.

The presence of the couple - in all their wedding finery - turned heads as visitors made a beeline for the attraction on New Year's Eve.

The merrymakers were also treated to a live entertainment show as well as music from an automated upside down musical orchestra.

To cap the evening, there was a parade of pre-historic creatures at the walkway on Level Five, which saw a special appearance by mascots George and Pearl.
