Woman who married her blanket says it's the most 'intimate' relationship she's ever had

There’s someone out there for everyone, but the prophets don't usually mean our duvet cover.
In fact, Sellick took her love for her blanket one step further as she married it in front of 120 guests in Exeter on Valentine’s Day in 2019.
Keeping on theme, she wore pyjamas and slippers to the ceremony.
Naturally, the dress code was dressing gowns, teddy bears, onesies and slippers, so guests were extra cosy.
“It was love at first sight, I think,” she told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
“I’ve had other duvets before, but always loyal to this one.”
The service was followed by a wedding reception at Glorious Art House in Fore Street, as per Devon Live.
Sellick cuddled into her duvet for their ‘first dance’ to Dido’s ‘Thank You’, which was performed live by a local band, and speeches were also given.
The ‘wedding planner’ behind the event was local artist Anna Fitzgerald.
She told the outlet: "It was organised by a group of artists who want to spread the message that it is okay to feel lonely on Valentine’s Day, and it is okay to have a duvet day.”
According to my mum a woman is marrying her duvet on #ThisMorning— Rae Earl (@RaeEarl) January 28, 2019
I’ve never understood a love more.
Sellick told This Morning that in ‘times of sadness or happiness’ she can always rely on her blanket.
She added that her human boyfriend Johnny apparently was very understanding about the wedding, as she explained the ceremony was purely for ‘art’.
To say that all boyfriends would be insecure is surely a blanket statement - apologies, everyone.
She added that Johnny is not the 'jealous' type.
However, the 49-year-old woman said her relationship with her duvet is not sexual but rather ‘a close friendship’.
She added that the wedding was an art project highlighting loneliness in society.
She said: “It’s kind of a message around Valentine’s people can feel sometimes a little bit lonely, so it’s like actually you know what, take some time for self-worth, self-care and have some time under your duvet and marry your bedding. Why not?
“Everybody loves their duvet!”
