An Australian woman and her English husband got married for the 83rd time - on their way to saying 'I do' 100 times - as part of an Irish competition win that sees them traveling the world. Mark and Denise Duffield-Thomas are now in equal position with the current Guinness World Record holders for the most weddings, The Cairns Post reported.

The young newlyweds, who tied the knot in the UK in August last year and followed it up with a beach ceremony in Australia, won the Ultimate Job in the World competition organized by Irish company Runaway Bride and Groom. Since then they have reaffirmed their love in dungeons, caves, a shark-filled lagoon and in the ruins of the private church of a hermit.

As part of the "job" they are traveling the world checking out romantic destinations, writing a daily 300-word blog, using Twitter and Facebook regularly, conducting interviews with the media, and writing for the Irish Times newspaper.

More than 15,000 couples applied for the job.
