Insólito: se casaron en el campamento base del Everest

La expedición hasta el lugar demandó tres semanas y un año de preparación física.

Por Redacción Voy de Viaje.

Casarse mientras se realiza una actividad que uno ama puede ser una experiencia única e inolvidable. Sólo se necesitan un espíritu inquieto, estado físico, un fotógrafo de bodas de aventura y una pareja que comparta las mismas pasiones.

Ese fue el caso de Ashley Schmeider, de 32 años, y James Sisson, de 35. Ambos querían una ceremonia que se saliera de lo habitual. Después de pensarlo mucho, decidieron que se casarían en el monte Everest, por lo que comenzaron los preparativos de un año para alcanzar un estado físico que les permitiera soportar la larga y extrema caminata que deberían hacer.

Así, a principios de marzo arribaron a Nepal junto con su fotógrafo, Charleton Churchill, a fin de iniciar una expedición que les llevaría tres semanas. Cuando llegaron al campamento base del Everest –a 5.200 metros de altura–, estaban listos para iniciar la ceremonia con la que tanto habían soñado.

La curiosa celebración quedó registrada en las maravillosas imágenes que Churchill pudo captar a través de su lente.

 

James and Ashley married at Everest base camp in March and we are thankful for all the encouraging comments, posts, and tags. Happy Mother's Day. .

Can I say thank you to everyone. Our Mount Everest adventure wedding has become much bigger than I'd ever thought originally in 2012. It has virally captured national and international headlines, so much that my website crashed earlier today with an overload of people visiting, but it's back up now. This continuing story is trending in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and many other regions, my phone and email have been buzzing non-stop, we have interviews scheduled, even going Live in Australia's top rated talk show on the weekend. . I have been contacted by a cable network for a possible show. If you Google this wedding, you'll see coverage, even ESPN chimed in. Anyway, thank you everyone for the encouragement and support. I can't read nor respond to many of the emails, posts, messages, etc., but I do appreciate you all, and James and Ashley especially recognize your support. They cherish all your stories and comments. If you have any stories where you hear this wedding mentioned, please do share, tag us on Facebook or instagram. . You can also visit our new YouTube channel we just set up to watch our videos of behind the scenes. We will be posting more. www.youtube.com/charletonchurchill . . #mteverestwedding #adventureawaits #adventurethatislife #adventurewedding #stayandwander #exploremore #weddingphotos #weddingphotography #keepitwild #getlost #visualsgang #destinationwedding #adventurous #junebugweddings #bridalfashion #weddingphotographer #finditliveit #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #hikerslife #theoutbound #brides #goplaces #adventurevisuals #choosemountains #charletonchurchillphotography #visualsoflife #weddinginspo #everestbasecamp #mteverest

For the 6000+ extra instagram followers who added me this week, thank you, I'm truly humbled. We never expected this much attention. We just wanted to capture some beautiful and epic wedding photos. I would love to hear how you found out about the everest wedding story and how it moved you. . About the image below. . We trekked up the mountain in frigid temps, a few snow storms, icy steep trails, getting sick, and made it to base camp. Nine days of hiking an average of 6-8 hours a day. We had planned to sleep at Everest Base Camp for two nights and capture a butt-load of photos around camp that I had envisioned. However, being that another snow storm was on its way, which would have made it difficult for us to get down the steep icy sections where we had seen others slip, and also James had a deep Khumbu cough that required oxygen, we decided to be safe and take a helicopter down after the ceremony. We were told we had one hour and a half to eat, drink, and get married. . Two hours after we took off, we were in Kathmandu feeling the warmth and satisfaction of being back on the ground. Getting back to the hotel for a shower, which we hadn't had in a week was also nice. I wore the same clothes for the week and used wipes to clean myself everyday. I'll share more images not seen yet and stories as I finish up editing images, maybe next week. . Read the full story on the link below my instagram bio.

Documenting a wedding up to and at Mt. Everest Base Camp right in front of the Khumbu ice-fall where Sherpas lay ladders over deep crevasses for climbers to cross with the Himalayan mountain range surrounding us...can officially be the answer to the most asked question I get from you all: What has been your favorite wedding location? . We appeared on Fox40 news news this morning, CBS a few days ago, check out the interview on my Facebook link. . #mteverestwedding #adventureawaits #adventurethatislife #adventurewedding #stayandwander #exploremore #weddingphotos #weddingphotography #keepitwild #getlost #visualsgang #destinationwedding #adventurous #junebugweddings #bridalfashion #weddingphotographer #finditliveit #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #hikerslife #theoutbound #brides #goplaces #adventurevisuals #choosemountains #charletonchurchillphotography #visualsoflife #weddinginspo #everestbasecamp #mteverest
