Daredevil couple gets hitched while sky high



Married on a wing and a prayer





A daredevil couple are celebrating after 

getting hitched 1,000 feet in the air – 

on the wings of two planes.

Darren McWalters, 24, was strapped to the 

top wing of a biplane while his 23-year-old 

bride Katie Hodgson, wearing a traditional dress, 

flew alongside on the wing of an identical plane.

Rev George Bringham flew ahead on the wings 

of a third aircraft and married the couple – 

over an airborne communications system – 

with proceedings played through loud 

speakers to the congregation below, 

reports The Daily Telegraph.

The ceremony, which was delayed twice 

due to bad weather, took place above 

RFC Rendcomb Airfield, near 

Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Mr McWalters, a fitness instructor, said: 

“We got engaged in the Brazilian rainforest 

and I wanted a wedding blessing that 

would top my proposal.

“It was unbelievable. 

Looking down and seeing my family and 

friends below was just incredible. 

I’m lost for words.”

His wife, a postwoman, said when she was 

a young girl she never imagined she would 

wed on the wings of a plane: 

“As I got older I became more adventurous. 

I bring the adventurous side out of Darren – 

he used to be scared of heights.”

Rev Bringham, 67, said: 

“It’s certainly the most unusual wedding 

I’ve ever done. The only hairy moment was 

when I thought my goggles were about 

to come off.”

Formation wingwalkers Team Guinot flew 

the couple 1,000 feet in the air for the ceremony.

The couple exchanged rings inside the 

reception hall at the airbase, before sitting 

down for a private dinner and party.
