Hot Air Balloon Weddings

Starting Married Life on a High

Reading Time - 2 minutes

It's fair to say that we've seen a whole lot of love in the air this flying season.

With more than 20 hot air balloon proposals, plus hundreds of anniversaries, unique dates, and couples enjoying romantic, once-in-a-lifetime adventures together.

A first for this season, though, is our hot air balloon weddings, as three couples were lucky enough to have the great British weather on their side and hopped into a basket on their big day.

Mr & Mrs Johnson - First Dance in a Balloon

Mr and Mrs Johnson got a surprise visit during their July wedding reception at Parkhouse Barn in Milnthorpe, Cumbria.

Our Lake District balloon floated down near their wedding venue just as photographs were being taken.

The landing added some extra magic to what was already a special day, and the couple enjoyed a photo shoot and first dance inside the balloon envelope.

These spectacular photographs were taken by their photographer for the day Jono Symonds.

Leanne and Ruben - Bath Balloon Wedding

Leanne and Ruben started their wedding day by going up, up, and away on a hot air balloon ride in Bath.

On Friday 7th April 2017, the couple went up, up, and away before heading off to share their vows at the Guildhall in Bath city centre.

Donning their full wedding attire, the balloon ride was the perfect start to their special day.

Telling us about their fairytale experience, the couple said:

“It was magical. We had astonishing views of the city and the Somerset countryside like we had never seen before. It was such a smooth ride and remarkably quiet at 3000ft.

“The weather was cloudless, beautiful, and crisp, with a warm sunrise showing its head over the Bath skyline. Our landing was soft and gracious like a butterfly on a leaf."

Ruben proposed to Leanne on Christmas Day and added the balloon ride as a special accompanying gift.

The couple had always wanted to go in a hot air balloon but hadn't yet ticked it off their bucket lists.

Trish and Matthew - Kent Balloon Wedding

Another beautiful July evening brought perfect conditions for Newlyweds Trish and Matthew, who were lucky enough to spend their wedding reception in the skies.

Launching on a sunset hot air balloon ride over Kent, the couple hopped into their unique carriage after saying I do.

Not forgetting, of course, their lovely bridesmaids and best man, who were wearing the perfect colour for the day!

We advise all couples to have a back-up plan if they do opt to book a flight for their big day.

The great British weather isn't always on the side, but if you're lucky, you may just get to experience a whole new world during your wedding.

If not, hey, a balloon ride is up there with some of the best honeymoon activities.

What a way to start married life on a high...
