Boeing 747 ‘party plane’ ready for weddings

Based at the Cotswold Airport, near Gloucestershire, couples now have the chance to get married on a party plane after the operator was given a licence to perform civil wedding ceremonies and naming ceremonies.

The airport also has legal rights to perform ceremonies in their operational control tower – the only such venues in the world. The unique plane will allow brides to walk down a very different kind of aisle as they prepare to exchange vows in the huge commercial airliner.

The aircraft took seven months to transform and despite some of the original decor, including the seating numbers still being visible, the plane can be styled in lots of different ways just like a normal wedding venue. Because of the vast space on-board, staff can also set up stages, makeup rooms and dressing rooms, all separate from the main area. SEE CATERS COPY
