A daredevil couple have got married at the top of a 900ft mountain peak in West Virginia.

Bob Ewing and bride Antonie Hodge Ewing tied the know at the top of the narrow Seneca Rocks, and their wedding pics have become an internet sensation.

Bob made the climb in his decade-old tuxedo, while Antonie climbed in her mother's wedding gown.

Mum, Evangeline, made the climb as well, by the way, saying: "I did it for all the old people out there", according to the Daily Mail.

Bob proposed to Antonie in March as the couple scaled the rocks, and she decided that she also wanted to get married there.

And it was a real family affair; brother Scott Ewing got ordained and performed the ceremony, while a second brother, John Ewing, made a separate climb and took the photos.

There was a second ceremony and reception the next day for other family and friends, and Antonie said her mum wash't even sore the next day, adding: "She was on the dance floor doing the salsa."

The owner of the Seneca Rocks Climbing School, Arthur Kearns, said they are not the first people to have got married at the peak, but he can't recall anyone else doing it in formal attire.
