London: A mountaineering couple adopted a very unique style of marriage as they tied the knot on the top of Glencoe’s highest peak.
To make their vows in a humanist ceremony, Jo Mellor, 36, and Rob Tearle, 30, climbed up one of Buachaille Etive Mor’s most dangerous cliffs.
The couple, who wore climbing gear in the traditional wedding colours of black and white, said during their vows that their bond together was “forged in stone”.
Both Mellor and Tearle had been married before in traditional wedding ceremonies and this time they were determined to do something different to celebrate their passion for climbing the Scottish peaks.
“We were both getting married for the second time, and we wanted something very different and much more personal that reflected our love of the mountains and of climbing,” the Scotsman quoted Mellor, a primary teacher from Southampton, as saying.
“That’s what got us together in the first place,” she added.
