A wedding is a special event for those who decide to take their relationship to a new level and bind their souls in holy matrimony. Some do big weddings. Others can’t afford to waste thousands of dollars on feeding a cohort of relatives and friends. And then there are couples who wish to celebrate their union in a unique, unforgettable way.
Here they are – 9 most bizarre places to get married!
1. At the horse racetrack
Sandown Park (England), the largest track and venue for the most famous horse races, is a rather strange place for a wedding ceremony. But this couple decided to tie their knot right here, on the field. Can I get a neigh-men?
2. In zero gravity
The couple, who had a wedding with zero gravity in 2009, became known as space enthusiasts. The Zero-G wedding took place in a Boeing 727, where most of the guests were dressed up to the occasion, the bride had cute earrings in the shape of planet Earth, and the groom wore little rockets for cufflinks.
3. On airplane wings
This couple from Wales decided to say “I do” while standing on top of a biplane. They figured, “why not?” after they won the wing-walking competition. They’re lucky to be alive!
4. At the shooting range
Instead of celebrating the wedding like the rest of the world, this couple in a traditional white dress and black tuxedo got armed to their teeth with rifles! Instead of toasting, they started firing bullets left and right. Did the bride throw a bouquet, or was it a gun with flowers too?
5. In the jungle surrounded by wild beasts
If you want to feel like Tarzan in the wilderness, you can find a suitable zoo and hold a wedding ceremony there. The best place is the London Zoo, probably. Oh, and also, you’ll get a whole slew of cute, furry witnesses around you.
The first marriage ceremony underwater was carried out in 1904, and since then, there have been more and more people willing to follow this trend. There are various ways and venues for such events, and all of them require you to say ” I do” underwater. Which can be a bit troublesome.
7. In a haunted house
How would you feel about going to a wedding that takes place at midnight in an abandoned haunted house during a full moon? I know I’d be wearing garlic, silver, and wooden stakes!
8. In a telephone booth
This couple from Norway said “yes” through SMS in front of a telephone booth. Just like many other couples, they met online through their phones, so it’s only logical that the wedding ceremony went like this. XOXO
9. At a funeral
You thought the haunted house wedding was weird? How about tying the knot at the funeral? This US couple decided to treat the classic oath “until death do us part” very literally. Many guests were confused when they saw the newlyweds at the grave. Was it their future graves? We don’t know, but that must have been quite a memorable ceremony.
