Our first Tree Top Wedding
We wanted to find out a little bit more about the couple from Southampton, Martyn Milner and Colette Gregory, who took their romance to new heights! On the 30th June 2015 they headed to the tree tops of Go Ape Aberfoyle to exchange their vows – and become man and wife 40 feet off the ground! They exchanged rings and will now share a life of adventure together…
Here’s a few questions that we posed:
1. Why did you choose Go Ape as your wedding venue?
We both love the outdoors and adventure so having a wedding that incorporated these themes was key. Go Ape had what we were looking for and were very supportive of our idea to break away from tradition.
2. What has been the overall reaction to your wedding?
There have been a couple that just don’t get it, but everyone else has reacted with amazement and support for us.
3. Are there some guests that don’t want to Go Ape?
Yes, but they are happy to watch from the ground and look after the chimps.
4. Were your hen and stag do’s adventurous?
For the hen party, the girls went out for a meal and dancing after. For the stag party, the boys went to Thorpe park in the day then out for a few drinks in the evening.
5. What are you doing after?
We’re having our honeymoon whilst we are in Scotland. We are staying at Forest Holidays for a week.
6. Any advice for those planning a wedding…
Do it your way! Traditional is boring. Break the rules and put it out there.
7. What did you wear?
A hand made bespoke dress has been made for the occasion and we’re not sure the suit hire company are completely aware where their suit is being worn!
