Coming up with the perfect place to hold a wedding can be a challenge for any newly engaged couple. The world hides beautiful places and sometimes opinions might be different. In the end a compromise must be reached. But, what if it didn’t have to be this way? A couple, upon realizing they could not possibly decide on just one location, arranged to get married on six continents in the span of 83 days.
Cheetah Platt and Rhian Woodyard are a couple of acrobats from Los Angeles. The two have been engaged since 2014. However, while planning their dream wedding, the decided to get rid of a conventional ceremony and get married in 38 places across the globe. Their weddings will span an 83 days period and will end on April 28th. The couple also decided to chronic their trip on Facebook, Flickr and their Honeyfund page. Friends, family and strangers were able to donate there in order to keep the globetrotter wedding going.
“The most powerful experience for be was standing in the ancient Egyptian desert and getting married in front of the great pyramids,” Platt said, describing one of the ceremonies.. “The only standing structure of the seven wonders of the ancient world. They are so majestic, awe inspiring and rooted in such myth and legend. It was truly a breath-taking wedding.”
Before embarking on the trip, both Platt and Woodyard were officially ordained to be able to perform the ceremonies wherever and whenever they needed. Their trip began on February 8th and spanned locations such as India, Egypt, Ireland, Thailand, Fiji, Spain and many others. The couple is planning to perform ceremonies on all continents except Antarctica. At their return to the United States, they will also host a big wedding reception.
“This wedding has been the greatest experience of my life,” Platt added.
