To celebrate Valentine's Day, a resort in Thailand staged a wedding with a difference. Three couples had to bungee jump, avoid a giant flower-covered swinging pendulum and show off their archery skills – while being chased by pirates.

The wedding at the resort in Prachinburi province, eastern Thailand, supposedly allowed the couples to demonstrate how much they would go through for each other.
