George Whitesides and his wife-to-be Loretta Hidalgo have arranged to be married by the billionaire while orbiting 70 miles above the earth. The couple have already purchased their tickets for the SpaceShipTwo, Virgin’s new sub-space carrier, at £100,000 a pop.
The lovebirds are among some 200 other wannabe space travellers, including Stephen Hawking, who have bought tickets for the flight.
Luckily for them, Branson’s an old hand at this wedding malarkey. He was ordained at an online church last year to marry his marketing director, Dimitrios Papadognonas.
