A woman is marrying her own duvet – and we can't say we blame her

As you battle this bleak and frosty time of year, you might just find you are happiest in bed. One woman has taken this to the extreme, announcing her plans to marry her duvet.

Pascale Sellick, 49, has invited the public to witness her wedding to her “comforting companion”.

For the unusual ceremony, she will forgo the traditional bridal gown, opting instead for bedtime attire: slippers paired with a nightie and dressing gown.

The relaxed dress code is extended to guests, who are also encouraged to bring hot water bottles if it’s cold.

Speaking of her decision, Pascale told SWNS: “My duvet is the longest, strongest, most intimate and reliable relationship that I have ever had. That’s because it has always been there for me and gives me great hugs.

“I love my duvet so much I would like to invite people to witness my union with the most constant, comforting companion in my life.

“There will be music and a ceremony, laughs and entertainment.”

The ceremony will take place at the Rougemont Gardens in Exeter, Devon, on Sunday 10 February at 2pm, followed by a free wedding party at The Glorious Art House in Fore Street.

Believe it or not, Pascale is by no means the first person to wed an inanimate object.

Last November, a man married a hologram during an intimate ceremony in Tokyo.

Other strangely pairings include a woman who married the Berlin Wall in 1979 (and was subsequently devastated by its historic collapse) to a Los Angeles based filmmaker who wed his mobile phone in 2016.

There is also the practice of sologamy, whereby someone marries themselves, just like Italian Laura Messi in 2017.
