Woman Is Planning Lavish Ceremony To Get Married To Her Duvet
Do you ever wake up for work on a Monday morning wishing you could just have another hour in bed. Then the same thing happens on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday? Things always get better when Friday arrives.
It's a pretty common problem, or so I'm led to believe. We just love our nice, cosy, warm beds. But would you ever get married to your duvet? Tempting... but no.
Not unless you're Pascale Sellick who has just announced details of a lavish ceremony where she plans to marry her actual bed covers.
The 49-year-old has issued an open invitation to anyone wishing to observe the moment she publicly declares her love for her favourite bedtime companion.
Artist Pascale describes herself as a 'rude, crude, spectacular exhibitionist' - a woman after our own hearts, then. And she describes her duvet as the 'most intimate and reliable relationship' she's ever had - now 'reliable' is something we can all relate to here, but 'most intimate'? Not so sure.
The unusual ceremony will be held at 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.
Full vows will be read in front of a fellow artist with no religious affinity who is performing the ceremony.
The dress code is dressing gowns, pyjamas, onesies, and slippers with the option of also bringing cuddly teddies or hot water bottles if there is a cold wind.
Pascale, said that what the duvet will be wearing will remain a surprise. We bet the guests are on tenterhooks.
But she has revealed her outfit will include fluffy slippers and nightgown, which will be complemented by a dressing gown.
She said: "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."
At the after party there will be a wedding band, with speeches and cutting of a cake.
To help make the wedding the best day of her life, Pascale has recruited Anna Fitzgerald, of WooHoo Art Events, as her wedding planner.
Anna said: "This is the most out-there art happening to date. I'm really please to be involved. Valentines day can be depressing for lots of people so hopefully this will lift peoples' spirits.
"It would be wonderful if folks could shake off their English reserve and rock up in their sleepwear for a bit of light-hearted frivolity."
Wait, so is this a wedding or simply an art project? And there was us thinking it was true love. Maybe it's a bit of both.
Well, either way, congratulations. Here's to your happy future as... umm, duvet and wife?
