8 Most Breathtaking Weddings Held Around the World

5. Oregon Countryside

It’s part of a wedding photographer’s job to immortalize precious moments while under pressure, but professional photographer Josh Newton’s most recent gig has received national press for its high stakes, burning intensity, and gorgeous results. Newton captured striking and dramatic photos of the newlyweds April Hartley and Michael Wolber set against the backdrop of a blazing wildfire, documenting a wild experience that’s sure to be unforgettable for both the couple and the photographer.

 

6. African Safari Wedding

Redditor Corey Perkins, aka per1993, has just recently renewed his vows to the love of his life in a breathtaking African wedding. After having met his Zimbabwe-born wife of three years while attending Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania (each on an athletics scholarship), the two wed in the United States. It wasn’t until this year that the couple was able to finally fly over to the bride’s homeland and throw a wedding for her family to attend.

7. Alaskan Glacial Pool

Anchorage-based photographer Josh Martinez traveled by helicopter to Alaska’s Knik Glacier with an adventurous bride and groom for one unforgettable portrait session. During the photo shoot, the couple frolicked through lush meadows set against a backdrop of snowy mountains, explored icy fields, and even waded knee-deep into a glacial pool of stunningly blue water—ruining the wedding gown in the process. For such incredible photos, we think it may have been worth it!

8. Tornado in Saskatchewan, Canada

When bad weather was predicted for their wedding weekend, this adventurous couple and their wedding photographer didn’t let that get them down. The Canadian couple and photographer Colleen Niska took advantage of the situation and sought out the dramatic skies before the rain started pouring down. Little did they know they would remember their special day in a much more unique way than ever expected! “We just happened to be at the right place at the right time in good old Saskatchewan, Canada,” Niska said. The lucky shots feature the brave couple standing along a gravel road with a massive tornado whirling in the background.
