Intrepid couples get hitched while scuba diving, kayaking or trekking in far-flung corners of the world. Or, like a couple in Thailand, they have a "flying wedding" and hang suspended high in the air from lines.



WHEN IT comes to tying the knot, some couples go for a destination wedding with a difference. Getting married on a tropical beach or at a fancy resort is definitely not for them.

Intrepid couples get hitched while scuba diving, kayaking or trekking in far-flung corners of the world. Or, like a couple in Thailand, they have a “flying wedding” and hang suspended high in the air from lines.

Swedish-Thai couple William Timhede and Napatsawan Timhede (above) reveled in their adventure-themed wedding in the Thai province of Prachinburi. Besides hanging in the air like human lovebirds, they fled through a stream chased by a mock pirate swinging a cutlass.

Perhaps they rested on their honeymoon.
