Fiji Airways Snags Guinness World Record for Highest Marriage Ceremony
Something may be in the water in the South Pacific with another mile-high wedding in the region. First we saw Air New Zealand support the country's newest marriage equality law, and now Fiji Airways is breaking records for a similar wedding in the sky.
The recently rebranded Fijian airline welcomed five lovey-dovey couples ready to tie the knot at 41,000 feet. Flying from Auckland to Nadi, the lucky winners of a contest put forth by Fiji Airways said their "I dos" in the flashy new A330 cabin, decked out with the traditional masi pattern design. In a unique twist to destination weddings, the honeymoons started right after the first kiss.
Not only did this five-in-one ceremony create memories for the couples involved, but it broke some records. Guinness World Records was on hand to witness the vow exchange to certify that it was, in fact, the highest wedding ceremony on record.
The pilots climbed over 40,000 feet to beat the old record and then received the official certificate, no doubt the Champagne corks were popping and brides and grooms were posing at the moment. We're just wondering how anyone could throw their bouquets in that business class cabin.
