Italian woman marries herself in fairytail ceremony

Laura Mesi made a decision to marry herself after her 12-year long relationship ended.

The lovely ceremony that was held without a groom had other wedding necessities such as a three-layered wedding cake, bridesmaids and guests. Yes, you read that right. She told Telegraph that all of us can have a fairytale even without a prince and we must first love ourselves.

Although the ceremony itself has no legal weight, it has received attention from the media both within Italy and overseas.

But Mesi is part of a growing trend for self-marriage - dubbed "sologamy" - in countries around the world.

For Mesi, the idea to marry herself came when her 12-year long relationship ended.

Speaking to La Repubblica newspaper, Mesi said that she had "told friends and family that if I had not found my soul-mate by my 40th birthday I would marry myself". "If one day I find a man with whom I can plan a future I'll be happy, but my happiness does not depend on him", she added. Supporters of such ceremonies without a partner say it is about self-love and acceptance, which is a social affirmation exclusively reserved for couples who Wednesday. "Everyone celebrates getting together with someone and becoming married, but there's no milestone in society that celebrates escaping something very bad or returning to your own happiness and contentment", she added. Back in May a man named Nello Ruggiero married himself in Naples.

In Japan, a travel agency began offering bridal ceremonies for single women in 2014. Laura didn't stop at a wedding, as she also went for a honeymoon to Egypt by herself.

Mesi did concede that marrying yourself was not for everybody, because it required the money to pay for it, the support of family and friends and "a pinch of madness".
