ATLAS OCEAN VOYAGES HOLDS FIRST OFFICIAL MARRIAGE IN ANTARCTICA
Ever dream of a pure white wedding? Now you can legally have one in Antarctica.
For the first time in history, an official wedding was performed in the southernmost continent of Antarctica.
The historic event was held by Atlas Ocean Voyages, part of MysticInvest Holding. MysticInvest holding has had more than 25 years of experience in hospitality, specifically the cruise industry, with a particular focus on taking luxurious travel to the next level.
Headquartered in Florida, the enterprise wants to create once-in-a-lifetime journeys for its customers. The World Navigator, the cruise ship's name, had this nine-night package deal to the Antarctic, which departed right on Valentine's Day.
The company performed four weddings with three vow renewals just in four days, with a wedding package deal aptly named "Happy Ever Atlas".
Launched in August 2021, the World Navigator cruise ship features 98 suites, solo suites with no single supplements, and staterooms. It's the line's first newly constructed small expedition ship, and it can reach smaller, authentic, and exclusive locales where larger vessels cannot go.
World Navigator also provided a shipwide wedding reception, as well as separated bachelorette and bachelor group parties prior to the wedding — also included were a one-tier wedding cake, digital photo package, welcome itinerary and gift bag, custom nuptial announcements, and Thank You cards.
World Navigator will cruise the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Iceland, Greenland, and The Arctic in summer 2022. In the autumn, the ship will set sail to Central and South America return to Antarctica for the winter 2022-23 season.
Atlas' second ship, World Traveller, launches in November 2022. With three additional sister ships — World Seeker, World Adventurer, and World Discoverer — to join the fleet through 2024, Atlas Ocean Voyages is ready to take more people's journeys to the next level.
Wedding in pure white
Legally joined in the matrimony, bride Courtnie Dodson and groom Brody Vermillion got to say "I do" on Danko Island in the southern part of Errera Channel, off the west coast of Graham Land, Antarctica.
During the 15-minute ceremony, Courtnie and Brody were accompanied by eight additional guests and Bryan Clark, who officiated the marriage. Bryan himself is a British Antarctic Territory-registered Marriage Officer.
From the exchange of the vows, each wedded couple received an official UK wedding license valued at more than $650 (Rp 9.33 million), also recognized by the U.S. government.
"We are happy to perform the very first official weddings in Antarctica, not just ceremonial as often happens," said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages.
"Atlas Ocean Voyages prides ourselves in delivering luxury adventures in remote and captivating destinations, and Happy Ever Atlas is perhaps the most adventurous destination-wedding experience to date. We are glad to make this most unique wedding experiences for our guests."#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial #wedding #white wedding #wedding antartica #antartica wedding #atlas ocean voyages #world navigator
