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.
