As time goes by, more and more couples are choosing to shun traditional wedding ceremonies in favour of something a little more out there. Young couples are particularly interested in creating new trends and doing something a bit different to make their wedding day stand out. From jetting off to exotic shores to hosting your own version of Glastonbury in the back garden and desperately trying to avert slips, trips and falls in the soggy mud, here are some examples of the more outrageous ways that young couples get married today.
The most outrageous ways that young couples get married
Young couples are often full of ideas and enthusiasm when it comes to getting married and thinking outside the box is an increasingly popular means of approaching wedding planning. Although many young couples that get married still choose traditional ceremonies, a growing number choose to do things differently. Here are some examples:
When it comes to venues, anything goes these days and couples have a choice of indoor and outdoor locations; although many do not have a legal licence to marry a couple, a growing number of people choose to have a legal ceremony at a registry office, followed by a service of some kind at their chosen venue. From stately homes, local pubs and giant tepees in a field, to castles, beaches, museums and disused barns, it’s possible to get married almost anywhere you can imagine.
If you search online, you’ll find all kinds of unique ways of conducting a wedding ceremony, from employing your friend or relative to take on the role of the registrar, to jumping out of a plane, whizzing around on a rollercoaster or even plunging into the depths of the sea or the local swimming pool to say your vows.
Can I claim for an accident at a wedding?
If you’ve attended a wedding and you suffered a slip or trip or you were involved in an accident in a public place, it may be possible to claim public liability compensation. Examples of personal injury claims, which may arise from attending a wedding include road traffic accidents, which were caused by the driver of a wedding hire car, food poisoning resulting from negligence on behalf of a catering company and slip and trip injuries, which occur as a result of a slippery or poorly maintained floor at a pub, restaurant or hotel.
