Here comes the bride! Is this the most daring wedding EVER?

A thrill-seeking couple are on top of world after they tied the knot in a 40ft-high tree top.

Colette Gregory, 29, climbed along a rope bridge in her white dress to meet her husband Martyn Milner, 37, on a platform amongst trees.

Martyn Milner and Colette Gregory have their wedding in the tree tops in Aberfoyle in Stirling. See Centre Press story CPWEDDING: Martyn Milner and Colette Gregory a couple from Southampton, Hampshire, took their romance to new heights as they headed to the tree tops of Go Ape Aberfoyle to exchange their vows, and become man and wife 40 feet off the ground.

They exchanged vows in front of a registrar before sliding back to the ground on zipwires at Go Ape adventure park in Aberfoyle, Stirlingshire, on Tuesday.

Guests then joined the wedding party back on the ground level for a champagne toast.

Groom Martyn said: “We’ve been to a lot of weddings, and have always said that when it came to our own big day we wanted to do something totally different.

“Colette and I love the outdoors and both have a great sense of adventure. We instantly knew it would be the perfect place.

“We weren’t sure if we’d able to make it happen so we’re so glad we could as it’s been the most amazing day.”

Colette’s dress was specially designed by her mum to be grabbed by a harness.

Their 30 guests – including the couple’s 19 month old daughter and bridesmaid, Alice — gathered to watch the couple get hitched against the backdrop of Loch Lomond.

And Colette felt that it was a day she “will never forget”.

She said: “We feel incredibly lucky that we’ve been able to realise our dream.

“We’re so pleased we decided to break the mould and do something totally unique.

“We will never forget it and I’m pretty sure our family and friends won’t either.”
