Woman who got tired of parents forcing her to marry finally marries herself

A single woman who grew tired of being asked when she was getting married has made the extraordinary decision to tie the knot to herself.


Oxford student Lulu Jemimah, 32, was fed-up of her family lecturing her on the importance of settling down with the right man.

But marriage is the last thing on her mind as she studies a masters in creative writing at the prestigious university.

So, in a bid to get her parents off her back, she decided to stage a mock wedding and sent formal invites out to her nearest and dearest.


She hired a dress, walked through the venue to the traditional wedding march and even gave a speech to her guests explaining the lack of a groom.
