7 crazy ways to get married

2 minute read

All summer your Facebook feed has been filled with wedding snaps.

Weddings on beaches, weddings at manors, weddings at churches, weddings on yachts.

You've pretty much seen it all. Right? Wrong.

Turns out there are some pretty extreme ways to tie the knot out. Here are our favourites:

1. Get married in Zero gravity

This couple were the first to get married in zero gravity. Looks like fun. Or does it? The bloke top right is having fun either way.

2. Get married in a cave

No joke. At Carnglaze in Cornwall you can get married in a cave. Possibly not the white wedding you've been dreaming of, but pretty awesome all the same. (Lovely hats as well).

3. Sydney Harbour Bridge

Wedding with a view? This ones for you. You can get married from the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Yep, the actual arch bit. (Plus, looks like you have to wear a jump suit - no more dress stress ladies!).

4. HONOURABLE MENTION ... Marry a bridge?

We couldn't not include this. Rather than getting married on a bridge, this woman married a bridge. Don't ask.

5. Get married in a shark tank

In 2010, April Pignataro and Michael Curry gave new meaning to the expression ‘taking the plunge’. The New Yorkers are both experienced divers and hit an aquarium on Long Island for their wedding. Tiger sharks, nurse sharks, eels and a massive Queensland grouper were amongst the guests.

6. Get married in a desert

7. Get married in a hot air balloon

This one is pretty special. Various companies, including this one in New Zealand, offer weddings beneath a hot air balloon. Those views have got to be unbeatable!

Planning a wedding abroad?

Planning a wedding abroad can be pricey. Especially when your shelling out for a hot air balloon and a shark proof wedding dress.
