31 year old Grace Gelder had been single for six years when she decided to take the plunge and get married.
However, oddly enough this London based photographer who had been on a lengthy journey of self-discovery actually married herself in a serene farm setting after coming up with the idea through her studies of sexuality and "making agreements with yourself and other people."
She proposed to herself on a park bench, bought a ring and a dress and invited all of her friends to watch her make her vows.
50 people attended the ceremony in a rural farmhouse in Devon, which was donated by a friend for the occasion.
They witnessed her complete a number of traditions, including making vows to herself, put a ring on her finger and throw a bouquet over her head.
The ceremony was completed when Ms Gelder kissed herself in a mirror before celebrating with friends.
