  • Description

    People have wed underwater, thousands of feet up in aircraft, and even in hot air balloons. But an Australian couple have just celebrated one of the oddest weddings yet -- dangling from a hand glider.

    SYNOPSIS: David Hodges and his bride Deidre made February 14, St. Valentine's Day, an excuse to hold the first wedding flight in the history of the sport. They've both been hang gliding enthusiasts for years, and after the ceremony sealed their arrangement by embarking on a bridal flight from a Sydney cliff -- which must be the riskiest start to a honeymoon ever.

    David obviously didn't mind his new wife literally "getting on his back" and seemed quite happy to take it laying down. But even the best-planned weddings can go wrong. After being up in the clouds for so long the happy couple came down to earth with a bump.
