Couple Traveling the World and Posing for Wedding Photos Along the Way

Horseback wedding in Banff, Canada

Manchester-based couple Lisa and Alex are on a mission to find the best place in the world to get married, and through first hand experience rather than other people’s opinions. They’re currently in the midst of a two-year journey around the world in a 24-year-old camper van, hunting for both the perfect location and the best cultural wedding ceremonies.

They stage a mock wedding in each country they visit — in the style of a culture associated with that location — and recruit a wedding photographer to help them document that experience.

So far they’ve visited dozens of countries (see a map here). One of the stated goals of the project, titled 2people1life, is to use the photos to teach the world about “all the different ways that people around the globe celebrate the universal practice of unifying two people”.

At the end of their journey, they’ll pick their favorite wedding country and return there to officially tie the knot. They’ll also find themselves with one of the most diverse collection of wedding photographs known to mankind.
