Woman falls in love with ‘strong and sturdy’ bridge and decides to marry it

A woman has relived her wedding to her sweetheart – but all is not as it seems.

Beaming Jodi Rose donned a wedding dress as she tied the knot with her "handsome, strong and sturdy" partner, watched by more than a dozen guests.

But unusually she stood on him throughout – as her groom was a 14th century bridge in the south of France.

Australian Ms Rose married Le Pont du Diable Bridge – which means The Devil's Bridge – in Céret back in 2013.

The experimental musician had travelled the world making recordings of sounds made by bridge cable vibrations before she settled on her beau.

And describing her big day to Sunday Night in Australia, saying: "I was really quite nervous… I felt like a bride. I got to have my princess wedding day."

She even went as far as having a huge wedding ring made for the bridge, which remains in place.

Ms Rose, who wears her own wedding ring, said in a blog post at the time: "He makes me feel connected to the earth and draws me to rest from my endless nomadic wanderings.

"He is fixed, stable, rooted to the ground, while I am nomadic, transient, ever on the road.

"He gives me a safe haven, brings me back to ground myself, and then lets me go again to follow my own path, without trying to keep me tied down or in thrall to his needs or desires. I am devoted to him.

"He understands that I love other bridges – and men – ours is a love that embraces the vagaries of life, as materialised in the swirling currents of the river that flows beneath his magnificent body.

"The Devil’s Bridge is everything I could desire in a husband – sturdy, trustworthy, sensual, kind and handsome."

The bride was describing life with a condition called object personification synaesthesia – where people associate objects with personalities and genders.
