Getting hitched is a big deal, so don’t do things small. Follow our plan to get wed in a way that will make some awesome wedding photos and some even better memories. We’ve got ideas for wedding ceremonies perched high in the mountains, deep under the sea and practically anywhere else that will make it difficult to get to the altar wearing a big white meringue dress. Buckle up and don’t forget to bring the ring as well as your mosquito repellent.
1) On top of Machu Picchu
This mountain located in beautiful Peruvian landscape towers 2 1/2 thousand metres above sea level. It’s one of the world’s top tourist attractions due to its preserved Inca ruins and fantastic views. Imagine a wedding selfie taken here.
2) Shark diving in South Africa
How is this for a photo opportunity. Imagine putting a ring on it while both of you swim suspended in a diving cage surrounded by ravenous sharks. Till death do you part!
3) Hiking in Yellowstone National Park
Get your whole wedding party to hike to one of the most scenic parts of the park and exchanging vows surrounded by ancient rock, wildcats and steaming volcanic geysers. Simply incredible.
4) On a ship sailing to America
Leave from Portsmouth to enjoy a week long wedding celebration and vacation on board a yacht heading to the United States. Bring a stabilising tripod camera.
5) Flying into the stratosphere with Richard Branson
If you’ve got the coins to party in space with Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga, then this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get hitched. The 1st couple to ever marry on board a spaceflight did so in 2009 on a flight that left from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
6) Getting back to nature in the New Zealand wilderness
If your significant other a total Lord of the Rings fanatic? Treat them to a wedding party in some of the most beautiful natural habitat in the world, made famous by the epic Lord of the rings trilogy. Make like the Fellowship of the Ring and rent horses for the most complete experience.
7) In the best of historic Edinburgh
The ancient Scottish city has many picturesque and romantic spots, but the most exciting place has to be Arthur’s Seat, which is part of a historic castle. Hold a lavish wedding here and then watch the whales below cruise by in the water of the North Sea. Check out a Wedding site directory to find wedding planners in Edinburgh.
