Bride wears wedding dress in 19 countries


You could wear your wedding dress once, then pack it away and put it in storage. Or you could take it travelling and be photographed wearing it in different locations all over the world. Bride Jennifer Salvage went for the latter. In 2008 she married her husband Jeff in a ceremony on the edge of a volcano on Easter Island in Chile. She was in need of a dress that could be "flown over 7,000 miles, driven across an isolated island, and hand-carried up a sacred volcano crater." She and her husband, a professional photographer, spent hours trying to capture the perfect shot of Jennifer in her wedding dress and the project continued on their honeymoon.

Fast forward five years and the couple have visited 19 countries and had 147 photoshoots of Jennifer wearing her wedding dress, doing everything from scuba diving and husky driving to dolphin swimming and hiking.

Their project is called One Dress, One Woman, One World and the couple have set up their own website to keep record of their travels. And the dress? That would be a strapless gown from the Destinations collection by Maggie Sottero. Who said lace was delicate?
