Wedding dress tour takes in Egypt and Peru

16th Apr 2013

After getting married in 2008 near a volcano crater on Easter Island in the South Pacific, self-trained photographer Jeff Salvage wanted to take some shots of his wife Jennifer in her wedding dress to capture the moment.

But that shoot planted an idea that has seen the couple zigzag back and forth across the globe - with the wedding dress in tow, taking in destinations including Egypt and Peru.

After flying the dress 7,000 miles to Easter Island, driving it across that island and carrying it up to the volcano crater by hand, the married couple decided the dress deserved better than to be stuffed away at the back of a wardrobe.

They decided to take it on a world tour, and the dress has now travelled approximately 135,000 miles and featured in shoots in 17 countries including China, Egypt and Peru.

Jennifer has so far posed while scuba diving, paragliding, kissing a dolphin, riding a horse in the sea and standing on the back of a husky sled.

The dress, selected for its simplicity and its ability to be "stuffed in and out of a backpack", has remained miraculously white throughout the couple's travels.

The pair collected Jeff's photographs in a book, One Dress, One Woman, One World, which documents the couple's globe-trotting adventures and helps to fund their future adventures.
