Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant are a couple in love and in search of the perfect place to get married. Unable to find exactly what they wanted online or in wedding magazines, they decided to leave their home in Manchester, England, and look for that perfect spot and ultimate experience by travelling around the world and seeing for themselves.
Since early 2011, they have participated in more than three dozen wedding ceremonies in over 25 countries, in the two years they have been on the road.
Many other couples are in search of unique wedding venues and themes, and to help them Alex and Lisa share their experiences on their 2people1life blog. Now their blog postings have had more than a million views, and their Facebook page has more than 25 thousand followers, as they experience the wonderful variety of cultures and traditions around the world, and determine why virtually every society on earth celebrates marriage. Their personal experiences, supported by local experts including shamans, Zulu chiefs, pastors, vicars, rabbis and even a Voodoo priestess, not to mention an army of wedding photographers and dedicated wedding professionals who have donated their time and skills to Alex and Lisa’s quest, tell a compelling and romantic story.
When they’ve been right around the world, they will pick their favourite location and head back there for a real and final wedding ceremony inviting everyone they have met along the way.

BACKGROUND: When Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant were researching weddings, they found amazing manor houses, castles, beaches, garden parties, and more, but not what they were looking for. So they saved their money, sold everything, including Alex’s business and their home in Manchester, England, and in early 2011 set off around the world in search of the ultimate wedding. First stop was Canada, where they bought a 25-year-old camper van, nicknamed Peggy, and drove across the country, then down though the western United States, Central America and western South America, crossing over the Andes and up the eastern side of the continent. They shipped Peggy back to Florida and continued up the east coast, with side trips all over the place. While Peggy travelled by sea they flew back to UK for Christmas 2012 and visits with family they hadn’t seen for 18 months. Now they are driving around Europe for a few months, with flying trips to South Africa, Tahiti and North Africa, before their planned drive across Asia and eventually to Australia. Their original two-year trip has already been extended to three years, as they accommodate invitations from Azerbaijan to the Philippines.
