Dracula’s castle, McDonald’s, Twitter… Wilderness Reserve presents the weird and wonderful wedding venues that will make even the most traditional of couples want to opt for something a little bit out there.
A Disney balloon ride, Florida
If an ordinary hot-air balloon doesn’t do it for you, how about the ‘Characters inflight’ ceremony in Orlando, Florida – where you’ll be wed in the land of your favourite cartoon heroes?
Pro: Stunning views across Walt Disney World, Florida.
Con: Not everyone likes adults dressed up as animals.
Dracula’s Castle, Transylvania

Pro: Visually, it’s the castle of fairytales.
Con: Historically, it’s the castle of nightmares.
Yes, in the States you can get married at McDonalds if you like. Ohio co-workers, Tyree Henderson and Trish Lynn Esteppe, married where they’d met a few years before. Customers carried on ordering their Big Macs as they shared their first married kiss.

Con: You will be breaking the wedding diet ASAP.
Battersea Power Station, London
This iconic disused power station is one of London’s architectural favourites.

#GetMarried via tweets like groom, Cengizhan Celik, and his bride, Candan Canik, did. They were gathered in a room with their officiant and witnesses, while the officiant carried out the nuptials on Twitter with the bride and groom ‘mentioning’ their vows.
