Traveljunkieindonesia.com – William and Kate might like to give this idea for their big day a miss. A couple have turned the other cheek to tradition by getting married – in a naked wedding.
Melanie Schachner, 26, and Rene Schachner, 31, had racked their brains to come up with something so memorable for their big day that they would never forget.
The groom and not-so-blushing bride decided to strip off and get married in the nude in front of their family and friends. They walked down the aisle in a register office service in Feldkirchen, Austria, before celebrating with a reception in a nearby castle.
Melanie wore a traditional veil and white high heels. Her breasts were exposed but a flesh-coloured thong covered her nether-regions. The groom, however, remained totally nude throughout the service, using only a top hat to cover his modesty when posing for wedding pictures.
Thankfully for the couple, the registrar managed to keep her embarrassment under control and make it through the reading of the vows.
“We’re not ashamed of our bodies and we wanted to do something different. It certainly saved on a wedding dress,” explained Melanie.
“It will certainly be a wedding our guests will never forget,” added Rene.
“The guests seemed to be taking plenty of pictures so they obviously weren’t put off by out nudity. Many said it was a great idea and added extra fun to our day, which we had been planning for a few years,” said Melanie.
In 2009 Australian couple Ellie Barton and Phil Hendicott, who conducted their nuptials in the nude back in 2009. They won a radio competition which awarded them a free wedding – as long as they both wore nothing at all. But their 250 wedding guests were allowed clothes.
Yes, it’s Naturist Adventures 🙂
