We can either choose to see it as unusual, weird, or just different. Well, you know what they say, 'love is blind'!
Our wedding day creates memories that last with us forever. It is one of the biggest and most important days in our lives and we do all we can to make sure it goes as perfectly as we had imagined it to be. A wedding is not just about fancy clothing and food and a great night to remember, it is officially the start of an unending bond that the two families involved share. Everyone tries to get married to the person they love the most but here's a woman who chose to marry her duvet instead of a person. She's not just getting a wedding that she will remember, but something the entire world will be aware of and will be unable to forget any time soon. We can either choose to see it as unusual, weird, or just different. Well, you know what they say, 'love is blind' (and apparently stupid).
You know that feeling when you wake up in the mornings and wish that you could spend another hour in bed cuddling with your pillow instead of getting ready for work? Well, here's a woman who took that feeling too seriously and believed that she loved her duvet more than anything else in the world. I mean, it is a pretty common feeling to have and it happens almost every single day but does that mean that we love our beds more than anything else? It sure is tempting to marry our duvets but just in that brief moment in the mornings, otherwise, it seems preposterous.
49-year-old Pascale Sellick recently announced that she will soon be tying the knot with the true love of her life, her duvet. She has decided to make her wedding pretty grand and has even issued an open invitation to anyone who wishes to attend the ceremony where she declares her love to her lover. Pascale is an artist and describes herself to be "rude, crude, spectacular exhibitionist'. She also goes on to describes her relationship with her duvet to be the 'most intimate and reliable relationship' she has ever had.
Most reliable seems about right but I'm not sure that a lot of people would agree or relate to the 'most intimate' part. That's a little weird. The open ceremony will be held at Rougemont Gardens in Exeter, Devon, on Sunday 10 February at 2 p.m., followed by a 'free wedding party' at The Glorious Art House in Fore Street. The ceremony will be performed by a full yellow artist who has no religious affinity and best of all, full vows will be read. Wonder what the duvet has to say during the ceremony.
The wedding, like any other, also has a dress code that the guests are to follow but unlike most other ceremonies, this one is pretty relaxed and has a wide variety of clothing to choose from. People are allowed to come in dressing gowns, pajamas, onesies, and slippers with the option of also bringing cuddly teddies or hot water bottles if there is a cold wind. Pascale will be dressing up for the wedding as well (of course she will, it's her big day). She will be wearing fluffy slippers and nightgown, which will be complemented by a dressing gown. She hasn't revealed what the duvet will be wearing yet, she says that it's a surprise.

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." She further added, "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." After the wedding, there will be a party which will include a cake cutting ceremony, speeches, and even a band. Wonder how she's going to dance with her duvet.

Pascale wants this day to be the best day of her life and to make sure that it is she got in touch with Anna Fitzgerald, of WooHoo Art Events, and recruited Anna as her wedding planner. She is planning to go all out on this wedding and knows that her marriage will probably never hit any speed bumps or face any hurdles in the future (but that's what everyone thinks before they get married).
"This is the most out-there art happening to date. I'm really pleased to be involved. Valentine's day can be depressing for lots of people so hopefully this will lift peoples' spirits." she said. "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." At this point, it sounds less like a wedding and a lot more like an art and music fest which is also a pajama party. In other words, regardless of how weird it sounds, this is one of the coolest weddings ever planned.
