Lu Chao and his fiancee, Zhang Chenyu, are from Shanxi Province. They were classmates at high school, and are getting married at the end of May.

Since both of them like rock climbing, they came up with the idea to shoot their wedding photos on a cliff.

“The cliff we selected is about 100 feet high, with a moderate level of climbing difficulty. Its reddish color makes it look passionate and festive,” the couple told Huaxi News.

The youngsters went to the cliff on May 5 with photographers and friends. The bride wore her white wedding dress, but with sneakers.

The photo shooting process was not easy as they had to hang on the cliff for 3 hours. After the photo shoot, the groom’s waist was covered with red marks from the safety rope.

One QQ user joked the having these wedding photos would remind the couple that marriage is like climbing on cliffs.

You might end up in the abyss if you don’t pay attention to each step under foot.
