Wedding-mad couple 'spoilt for choice' in Wales

A Yorkshire couple who have 'tied the knot' all over the world say they were 'spoilt for choice' when choosing a Welsh location.

Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant will hold today's ceremony at Aberglasney Gardens in Carmarthenshire.

Alex and I decided we wanted to have a traditional Druid ceremony with a modern twist while in Wales, and where better to hold this ceremony than in front of the ancient yew tree tunnel at Aberglasney? We’re very much looking forward to being surrounded by the majestic nature and beauty of the gardens.

– Lisa Gant

Alex and Lisa had planned to marry before embarking on their three-year travelling adventure.

But when they couldn't agree on the type of wedding they wanted, they set off anyway - holding a small ceremony in each country with the aim of finding the perfect location.

At the end of their trip, Alex and Lisa - who jokingly admit that their unusual idea came about 'after a glass of wine or two' - will return to their favorite location to finally - and legally - tie the knot.
