A wedding-addicted couple who have already said ‘I do’ 68 times around the globe and are preparing for their 69th ceremony in a very special destination – Petra, Jordan – which takes place mid May.
Hopeless romantics Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant, from Manchester, are on a mission to find the perfect location to tie the knot.
The happy couple, currently in Bali, have been hunting the perfect wedding for almost four years.
The globe-trotting pair have a Facebook page and blog documenting their expedition via campervan, and came up with the idea when they decided to move to Australia.
Lisa told the press recently: “We both applied for residency and thought we would circumnavigate the world testing out possible locations and then settle in Australia.”
They settled in Down Under in early February after spending their travels relying on the goodwill of friends and strangers from across the world to help them out.
Lisa, 32, added: “We just had to sell our house back in England – the world is bigger than it looks on a piece of paper.
“So now we are homeless in a camper van and couldn’t be happier. We have warned friends that we will be turning up on their doorstep begging for a bed.”
The next step for the couple will be to settle on which location – out of all 69 – will be the most idyllic to officially become husband and wife.
Lisa and Alex, 34, had been friends for years when they began dating in 2008. In 2011, they decided to uproot their lives and follow their dream to relocate in Australia.
Just one day after they said “I do” for the first time in a traditional ceremony in their hometown of Didsbury, they started their search for the very best place Down Under.
Their aim was to find the most exceptional and unique wedding locations possible, blogging about their experiences so others could better choose where to tie the knot themselves.
As the couple originally said on their website 2 People 1 Life:
“On an adventure of a lifetime, we are going to drive (and ship) around the globe in our 27 year old camper van ‘Peggy’ exchanging vows in the most unusual and unique wedding locations we can find. Not wanting to drag a ‘White wedding’ around the World, we decided to try our hardest to embrace the culture and local traditions of each place we visit.”
