A couple recently discovered that their wedding venue was a Pokemon Go gym. Upon arriving at the Woodlands Park Hotel in Cobham, UK, Elizabeth Corps and Joe Whiddett were informed that the popular mobile game had designated their wedding locale as a battle gym.
Talking about the situation, Elizabeth explained: ‘as soon as our car pulled up to the reception my brother informed my husband that there were two Bulbasaurs in the car park.”
Guests who had downloaded the smartphone phenomenon spent parts of the wedding reception battling each other for ownership of the gym. Fortunately, the couple saw the funny side: “A lot of Pokemon talk happened at the wedding and I was worried it would steal our thunder but actually it was pretty fun getting photo bombed by the odd Pokemon,” Elizabeth said.
Pokemon Go did not exist when the couple booked their wedding, but we suspect it will be a factor in couples’ future wedding planning, whether it’s to avoid temptation or to allow guests to try and catch them all during the reception.

A UK couple who got married in 8 different locations around the world have recently shared their story – and some amazing pictures.
Amelia and Brett Irwin initially planned for their wedding ceremony to be a single event in South Africa. However, when Brett’s brother announced that he was getting married around the same time, the couple found that their wedding plans were upended. Instead of getting upset, they embraced the challenge and decided to spend their wedding money on travelling for a month to 8 different countries around the world, getting married in each one, their final destination being Brett’s brother’s wedding ceremony in South Africa.
The only guest at all the couple’s wedding ceremonies was their 5-year old son. During their month away, the couple took 8 different wedding dresses with them for each ceremony. Amelia said: “We started in Paris and planned to go to Moscow. Then I was so keen on doing the Trans-Siberian railway, which includes Irkutsk, Mongolia, and ends in Beijing, which is where the Great Wall of China can be accessed. We both wanted to go to India. We flew over Nepal and stopped there too. We flew from there to Delhi and drove to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, and then flew down to Mumbai where we stayed two nights, before heading to Mauritius.”
