An adventure-loving bride and a groom have posed for wedding photographs on the edge of a cliff after having to downsize their nuptials because of COVID-19.

Ryan, 30, and Skye Myers, 28, from Mountain Home, Arkansas, wanted a big ceremony but had to change their plans due to coronavirus restrictions.

So the daring couple, who are avid explorers, decided to instead celebrate their special day with a photoshoot at Hawksbill Crag, a well-known cliff on the Whitaker Point hiking route in their home state.

One of the heart-stopping images captures the newlyweds as they hold hands and Skye leans over the edge of the rock face – although, in another snap, it’s revealed she’s wearing a safety rope.

For the occasion, photographer Mason Gardner captured images of Ryan and Skye grasping on to one another.

Ryan said: ‘We are avid adventures and love the outdoors – hiking, kayaking, boating and camping rotate spots on our agenda, so we are always looking for the next epic adventure. 

‘Somewhere in the middle of June this year, after being together for more than four years, I told her I didn’t want to wait any longer to being married to her’, recalled the groom.

‘We wanted a big wedding, but had minimal time to plan it because Skye started nursing school, and with the pandemic regulations we were having difficulties deciding on how to proceed with a wedding.

‘That’s when we started looking at gorgeous iconic spots for an outside ceremony, so that it would be magical and memorable.’ 

Couples in Arkansas can have a wedding of around 100 people, but the venue must follow a long list of requirements, including social distancing measures and providing hand sanitizer stations at every entrance and exit.

Ryan said the wedding took place at Hawksbill Crag with about 12 guests, and it was at the end of the ceremony that the breath-taking photoshoot was taken. 

He said: ‘For the photos, Skye was in a sit harness designed for climbing. Everyone included had experience and was well-trained in climbing. All equipment and safety gear used was inspected and cleared by an expert.

‘Our crew was made up of myself, my best man Gage, Skye and her sister Summer, one rappelling expert and our photographer, who was amazing!’
