We kept talking about all kinds of ways to personalize your wedding, so I want to present you a short story about a very original and nice way a couple chose to personalize their wedding.

Nathan Gibbens a 31 years old man and Vicky Law a 29 years young woman have been together for 6 years when they decided to get married. The young couple lives in Northampton, UK, and they admit that they have always dreamed about having their wedding in an Ice Church.

When they found out about this little place called Balea Lake, in Romania, (a country in Eastern Europe) where there is an Ice Church and also an Ice Hotel they knew they had found the perfect venue for their wedding. The Ice Church is situated at over 6000 feet on a mountain, but that didn’t stay in the way of their plans.

The bride had an amazing bridal gown but the shoes were a problem. As the paths to the church were very slippery and the floor in the church was icy, the bride had some trouble with walking. But choosing bridal shoes instead of hiking boots proved to be the right call and the bride looked wonderful.

The wedding ceremony was very intimate with only family and very close friends. There were only 14 wedding guests but they all agreed that although it has been a little cold, the experience was personalized and unique and that it was worthed going to Romania.
After the ceremony, they had a little reception at a hotel made also of ice. The young couple asked for a special menu with all kinds of fancy and traditional food.

Some of the wedding guests even decided that they want to experience some more adrenaline and chose to spend the night in one of the rooms at the Ice Hotel. They said they never tried it before but that they want to live like Eskimos for one day, to see how it is.
