When lovers Zehdir and Reshma from Kolhapur, Maharashtra, decided to become man and wife, they opted for a wildly unconventional route to marital bliss – by exchanging vows while being suspended 90 metres above the ground. And yes, they lived to tell the tale!

The daredevil pair, who incidentally met and fell in love while on a trek, took part in the marriage ceremony dressed in all their traditional finery even as they hung from a ropeway.
