Marriage in Space – Has Anyone Ever Done it and Will I be Able to?

When you are planning a wedding there is a lot to think about – the dress the food and of course the venue. For many people, they will consider a church or a venue like this barn wedding venue Kent – but for some people they want a venue that is a little more… unusual!

As we look to the future, something that some people are asking is, can you get married in space? Well, this is something that has already been done – the first space wedding happened back in 2003, when Yuri Malenchenko married his partner Ekaterina Dmitreva – she was actually on earth at the time of the wedding, where she married from Houston Texas via video link whereas Yuri was miles above her, onboard the International Space Station.

Although marriage in space is not currently something that is an option for most of us, unless we happen to be professional astronauts, a time in the future may well come soon where it will be something that space loving lovers can enjoy.

Space tourism is something that has garnered a lot of interest in recent years, and with big pioneers like Elon Musk and Richard Branson both looking to bring the stars to more of us, it is certainly something that is a possibility – although it might be a good idea to start saving now as it is not likely to be cheap!
