TOP 6 MOST-UNUSUAL WEDDINGS WORLDWIDE
1. Get married in a Gold Mine, Nevada
Specials fans will love Eldorado Ghost Town, or Nelson’s Landing, as otherwise known – a deserted town in Nevada, USA. Here brides and grooms can marry in a real mine location, with a tour of the ghost town and its sparse barren scenery. Costs from $1799.00.
Joni Moss-Graham of The LV Wedding Connection states: “At just one hour away from Vegas, this rustic town has an amazing array of old buildings, barns and props, like antique cars, rusted out buses, gas pumps and even a crashed plane (as seen in the movie 3000 Miles to Graceland).
“Ceremonies can take place inside the existing Gold Mine or outside surrounded by antiques and desert scenery. These locations offer amazing photo opportunities with a built-in vintage theme. It is truly for the eclectic,” says Moss-Graham. For more information please visit http://www.marryabroad.co.uk/
