Top five extreme locations for a wedding

Are you looking for more than just your usual church wedding or registry office ceremony? With more and more couples travelling to get hitched in sunnier climes, why not go one step further and say your vows somewhere really extreme?

Here are five of the most extreme wedding experiences out there… and they really are out there.


The Highest

Want to start your married life on the ultimate high? How about on a mountain side thousands of feet above sea level?

From a chapel in the Swiss Alps to a castle in the Italian Dolomites, there are numerous mountain wedding packages to choose from, all offering breathtakingly romantic back-drops of rocky peaks and snow-capped mountains for that unique wedding album.

The Lowest

From the heights of the mountains to the dramatic drop of the Grand Canyon. You don’t get much lower than the bottom of the 3, 500 feet Grand Canyon.

Fly Maverick offers one of the most dramatic wedding experiences with the Desert dreams Sunset Wedding, beginning with a helicopter tour of the Hoover Dam and long fizzled-out volcanoes, followed by touching down at the bottom of the Grand Canyon for a wedding ceremony in the heart of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. And if that wasn’t enough, the flight back to your hotel will take in the sunset over Arizona and the evening lights of the Las Vegas Strip.


The Wildest

If you like to think you?re a pretty wild couple, you don’t get much wilder than getting married on the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Spero Africa offers a range of wedding packages in the wilds of Kenya, from a ceremony in the grand Norfolk Hotel in Nairobi to a wedding under flimsy tent canvas on the Maasai Mara National Reserve – the home of lions, cheetahs, leopards and… newlyweds!


The Coldest

Perhaps the burning fires of your passion could do with cooling slightly for the big day? Well maybe you should consider walking down the aisle of the magical Ice Castle in Lapland. Decorated with sculptures carved from snow and ice, the Ice Castle is a winter wonderland like no other, perfect for your big day. Lapland Weddings offers three complete icy wedding packages – Gold, Silver and Bronze – starting at ?1169.


The Underground

You’re getting married in Vegas? How original. If you’re considering travelling to the US for your wedding, what about tying the knot between the stalactites and stalagmites of the Bridal Cave in Missouri. Situated under the wonderfully-named Thunder Mountain, the Bridal Cave is steeped in history and has its very own Bridal Chapel, the site of Native American wedding ceremonies in years gone by.

Alternatively, you might prefer to say I do in Luray Caverns, Virginia, which houses a giant organ fashioned from stalactites!

They say your wedding day is a day to remember all your life. Whether it’s dodging lions in Africa, marrying in mountain boots or wearing thermal underwear in your own ice kingdom, you certainly won’t forget an extreme wedding.
