A woman who married a ghost last month (as you do) is still planning a honeymoon with her supernatural soulmate - despite a rather 'awkward' wedding night.
Singer-songwriter Brocarde has continually made the headlines in recent years due to her relationship with what she claims is the ghost of a Victorian soldier.
Understandably, it was a little tricky to find a church that would hold the event, saying that she'd even been threatened with exorcisms when looking for venues.
Eventually Asylum Chapel in Peckham, London, agreed to host and she was finally able to get hitched to her now-husband Edwardo.
And the big day was held on Halloween, which I think we can all agree is rather fitting.
But finding a venue was just half the battle, as Brocarde has now said the night involved an 'awkward' encounter with the spirit of Marilyn Monroe.
The 39-year-old, who lives in Oxford, explained: "During the wedding planning, Edwardo had suggested that we invite other ghosts like Elvis and Henry VIII but I didn’t like the sound of that.
"Instead, we left it as an open invite to past souls.
"The ghost of Marilyn Monroe was present and at the reception, Edwardo made an inappropriate comment about her looking hot.
"I was just like, 'Wow, really? It’s our wedding day.' The comment completely ruined the evening."
The singer said they had a 'beautiful room' booked with a four-poster bed, rose petals and candles.
But she was not in the mood, adding: "The comment had left a sour taste in my mouth and the wedding night ended up being a little bit awkward - not the night of amazing passion I had hoped for.”
Up until this point, Brocarde's relationship with Edwardo has been full of passion.
While previously opening up about their love, she admitted that she didn't believe in ghosts before their first encounter, which unfolded one night during lockdown.
"I was tossing and turning in bed and I literally just felt this burning sensation in my heart out of nowhere," she said.
"Not a pain, it was physical burning and a deep sensation in my chest.
"It was alarming at the beginning, it was really intense and I was struggling to breathe.
"And then I was propelled forward, I was rigid. I was shaking and in tears and then literally nothing, I went cold."
Seconds later, Brocarde alleges she first saw the Victorian soldier, who at this point was nothing more than a 'figure passing' through the room. Then he disappeared, uttering the words, "I love you," as he went.
Their relationship grew from there, with the ghost reportedly leaving her love hearts on the window of the shower, breathing in her ear, embracing her and communicating with her through visions in her head.
As for the awkward wedding night predicament, Brocarde said it's not enough to ruin their marriage - they're now back on track and planning a honeymoon.
"Edwardo is very unpredictable so it’s just typical that he’d ruin our wedding by eyeing up Marilyn, but I’m hoping a honeymoon will make up for it," she said.
