Innovation That Matters

Suspended from a crane, weddings with a view

Work & Lifestyle

Back in July 2006, we wrote about a Belgian company that offers its clients the opportunity to hold dinners in the sky–lofty events held on a platform suspended from a crane. Over the past two years, Events in the Sky has organised over 500 events in about 25 countries, and works with partners in over 15 markets to help expand the concept. Recently, the company added a new service to its line-up: Marriage in the Sky. Marriage in the Sky is hosted on a platform, where 20 guests are strapped into aircraft-like seats and suspended at a height of 50 meters. As befits an exclusive venue, Marriage in the Sky can be customised to every couple’s wishes, including spectacular elements like bungee jumping off of the platform after vows have been exchanged. A second crane can be used to suspend another platform at the same height, making room for entertainment or more guests. The platform used for Marriage in the Sky differs from those used for the company’s Dinner in the Sky events, and is actually a modification of a Meeting in the Sky platform, which seats up to 30 guests in theatre-style seating. The concept is undeniably rooted in the experience economy. Up, up and away…? 😉
