Not Your Average Outdoor Nuptials - Part 1
Want to tie the knot near a majestic glacier, exchange vows before a volcano or take the marital plunge with skydiving? These are all great examples of adventure weddings. These are sometimes called “adventure elopements,” since they typically only involve the couple and their officiant. Far-flung destinations are par for the course, but adventure weddings pair these exotic locales with extraordinary adventures.
What does an adventure wedding look like? That always depends on the couple. There were two grooms who wed in front of Fagradalsfjall, an Iceland volcano that erupted in April 2021. Skydiving weddings are a thing, especially in the United States. One firm, Go Jump, doubles down on the experience by offering Las Vegas–style skydive weddings. But these are just a few possibilities. There are caves, glaciers, waterfalls, mountains, and even helicopters weddings all serving as adventure wedding venues.
Depending on the couple’s vision, they may use a nature wedding ceremony script. Some couples don’t just love the outdoors – they may feel a special connection to nature. Therefore sharing many spiritual traditions with nature, this isn’t surprising. Classic and modern literature also contains tons of possibilities for nature-themed wedding readings.
Make sure to speak with your officiant about your adventure wedding to make sure he/she is comfortable performing this type of ceremony.
