One of the most difficult decisions for destination brides and grooms can be where in the world to get married. With so many wonderful wedding locations across the globe, choosing just one (and the right one!) is sometimes a challenge.


Lisa and Alex (also known as 2People1Life) took the life changing decision to wed their way around the world in order to sample international weddings in a quest to find their favourite spot to tie the knot. It all started in Didsbury in the UK (shown in the photograph above) where they said “I Do” for the first time. As they made their way from one country to the next they have shared their incredible journey through their blog and I have had the pleasure of featuring some of their wanderlust weddings along the way too.


At the end of last year Lisa and Alex shared a roundup of all of their nuptials to date…all 61 of them! If you missed the feature, take a look at part one and part two to get an overview of their adventure. From Hawaii to South Africa, from Tahiti to Ireland, each country they encounter brings a new wedding and a fantastic cultural experience.


So to see the year out, Lisa and Alex are kindly back again with not only the weddings that they have enjoyed throughout 2014 but also with a little recap of the highs and lows that 2014 brought to them and what got them through the challenging times. Over to Lisa and Alex…..
