Dream Wedding Couple tour the world in search of perfect wedding destination

See Pelling and Lisa Gant as they embark on a four-year (and counting) journey around the world with plans to hold wedding ceremonies along the way.

Four years ago, Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant sold all of their belongings and left their home in Manchester, England to have the perfect destination wedding.

On this unusual decision, the couple said;

"We wanted to meet local people, experience local culture and understand what makes the world tick," Gant said. "We are crazy romantics and to give us some purpose, we decided to look for somewhere to get married [in each place]."

According to huffingtonpost, Pelling and Gant have tied the knot 70 times in roughly 70 different countries, including Argentina, Morocco, Austria, South Africa and Jordan so far.

Although none of these wedding ceremonies are legally binding, they will return to one of these spots with their friends and family and make the marriage official at the end of the trip.

For now, they still have 10 to 15 more countries to visit before they decide what location to officially wed.

"After two years on the road -- our initial plan -- and 48 weddings, we realized that life is all about the journey, not the destination, we learned that our adventure is all about the people, making new friends and being made welcome into homes, lives and even the most sacred traditions."

"What is amazing to learn is that every culture celebrates the union of two people. Making a commitment to one another is cause for celebration, sometimes a week or more of celebrations in some cultures. It is such an important part of everyone’s lives, literally every person on the planet. Even if [they're] not the ones getting married, whole communities come together to wish the couple well and rejoice with them."
