You may have already heard about the round-the-world W-day trip of Alex and Lisa of “Two People One Life” fame, the couple who are on a mission to get “married” in as many different countries and locations as possible to raise funds for UNICEF.
If you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about then Lisa has provided us with the details below – this is literally the adventure of a lifetime.
This afternoon we’re sharing the film of their 41st (!) big day in Ireland which has been beautifully captured by Reuben from Show and Tell Cinematography. Seriously folks, you’ve GOT TO SEE THIS, the location is beyond breathtaking and the simple organic styling made Lolly and I do some kind of jumping up and down/clapping with joy sort of routine in the middle of RMW HQ.
Lolly and I (in no particular order) “I want a crown made just of leaves!!!” “I want to get married again just so I can wear an oversized sequin jumper!!!!” “I want a fishtail plait that is that HUGE!!!!”
I guess you could say we REALLY like it.
Lisa The Bride: Back in the year 2000 I met a boy. I didn’t know it at the time but that moment changed my life. I know it sounds like a cliche and absolutely like cheese on toast but it’s completely true!
We were friends for years, eventually lovers and then went our seperate ways for a while…well…for 5 years!
After both of us going through some wild relationships we caught up again for a drink and instantly knew we should have never let each other go.
Within a few months we were planning the trip we’d both been dreaming about since that day back in 2000!
We put Alex’s business up for sale, put the house up for sale and worked all hours to save the pennies to make our dreams come true!
So finally…3 years down the line…business sold, house sold, jobs quit and our joint 60 years of life packed into boxes, sold and donated…the journey begins!
We are on an adventure of a lifetime. For three years we’re going to drive and ship around the globe in our 25 year old camper van ‘Peggy’ exchanging vows in the most unusual and unique wedding locations we can find.
We are looking to embrace the culture and local traditions of each place we visit.
We want to experience the difference in each ceremony and find out what it is that makes the bringing of two people together such a worldwide tradition, and of course let the world know!
At the end of the trip we will pick our favorite place and go back to officially tie the knot.
