A woman has announced details of a lavish ceremony where she plans to marry – her DUVET.
Pascale Sellick, 49, 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” and describes her duvet as the “most intimate and reliable relationship” she had ever had.
The unusual ceremony will be held at Rougemont Gardens in Exeter, Devon, on Sunday, February 10 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 she was keeping what cover the duvet will be wearing as a surprise.
But she has revealed her outfit will include fluffy slippers and nightgown, which will be complimented 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.
She 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.”
