WEDDING ORGANIZER SPEAKING
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) WEDDING ORGANIZER, MOHAMMED ALFARAJAT, SAYING:
"We are a peaceful country, a country that holds Amman's message (a statement of tolerance and peace by King Abdullah II), the message of neutrality and moderation in Islam. We don't have extremism. We proved this to them (the British couple) through various events, visits and conferences which took place in the Kingdom, and in two weeks I was able to convince them to come to the Kingdom."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH GROOM, ALEX PELLING, SAYING:
"We started this idea because we were interested in why all the cultures of the world celebrate marriage. Why they celebrate the coming together of two people, and it's an interesting subject you know. We were doing this before we knew about other cultures doing it, and yet we all do it, and so we've gone out into the world and we're experiencing all these different cultures to try to get to the bottom of why we do it."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH GROOM AND BRIDE, ALEX PELLING AND LISA GANT, SAYING:
PELLING: "We do this trip over land. We drive in a campervan."
GANT: "A logistical nightmare, so we have the obvious kind of obstacles, but you know we've been welcomed everywhere and we've had an amazing time everywhere we've been"
PELLING: "Yeah, we never felt in danger or unsafe, so it's been a positive experience."
