Picture the scene …. Fresh snowfall, perfect weather with blue skies and sunshine, almost empty slopes and two snowboarders making their way down the mountain. Only these two snowboarders were dressed for a wedding … why? Because they’d just got married!
Avgi and Darren chose Col Prodat in the Alta Badia ski area, close by to Corvara, because they think this part of the Dolomites is “Breathtaking”.
As well as easy access right after the ceremony for the skiers in the wedding party, the non-skiing guests could also enjoy the beautiful views from the venue of Via Alton.
The Dolomites are a complete contrast to The Alps – The beauty and diversity of the landscape of the Italian Dolomites alone will enchant you.
In fact even my drive to the location had me stopping in tracks, quite literally to take pictures of the stunning scenery. Just took a look at these I captured on my iphone on my drive.
Avgi and Darren now live in Cyprus with their beloved dog Loki. They met though in Milton Keynes in the UK.
“I’ve always wanted to learn how to skydive. When I was quite young we travelled to the UK and my dad knowing my love for extreme sports , since I was too young for a real skydive took me to try indoor skydiving at Airkix (now IFLY) in Milton Keynes and that’s where I met Darren – he was my instructor” Avgi told me.
In the past few years Avgi has suffered with serious health conditions but this has not stopped her from Skydiving or Snowboarding. Extreme sports is still “her thing”.
From the moment I met this couple I knew I would love telling their story. I hope you enjoy watching it.
