Woman plans wedding to her favourite chandelier, Lumiere07/18/2019
Amanda Liberty loves chandeliers.
Not as a fancy household decoration. We mean she’s in love with chandeliers, as in she’s currently in romantic relationships with several chandeliers and plans to marry her favourite, a chandelier called Lumiere.
You might remember Amanda as the woman who has a tattoo of her beloved chandelier, or the one who sleeps with a chandelier called Jewel in her bed, or as the person who changed her surname by deed poll during a relationship with the Statue of Liberty.
Last time we checked in on Amanda she had popped the question to one of the chandeliers she shares a relationship with, Lumiere.
Now she’s starting to plan the wedding.
Amanda won’t be able to marry Lumiere officially, as she is a chandelier.
But by holding a ceremony and sharing it widely, Amanda, who identifies as an objectum sexual, hopes she will legitimise her attraction to chandeliers and other inanimate objects.
Amanda said: ‘I’m determined to have this commitment ceremony, to prove that I’m here for Lumiere and that my love is going to last.
‘I restore the chandeliers in my spare time so they can continue to interest people as they like to be the centre of attention, that’s what they like and its the energy I get from them.
‘I’m not sure what dress I’ll wear and will invite those closest to us.
‘I’ll also be buying matching wedding rings for Lumiere and myself.
‘I know a lot of people think my attraction to chandeliers is strange, but I’m not crazy.
‘I have been polishing Lumiere most nights to ensure she looks her best too.’
Amanda fell in love with Lumiere after struggling to maintain a long distance relationship with Libby, otherwise known as the Statue of Liberty.
Amanda bought the 91-year-old German chandelier from Ebay and re-assembled it, becoming romantic in the process.
Amanda said: ‘Lumiere was originally ‘born’ in Germany 91 years ago, and is 28in wide.
‘She first caught my eye when I stumbled across her on Ebay – I had no idea she was my soon-to-be wife.
‘I spent £400 shipping her over from Europe and it really was love at first sight.
‘As soon as I’d seen her, I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was – she has such a beautiful shape, and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her.
‘I knew there and then she had to be mine.’
The relationship isn’t monogamous, but thankfully Amanda is free to continue relationships with multiple chandeliers without any jealousy.
She takes a smaller chandelier, Jewel, to bed with her, and says that all her chandeliers understand that she loves them all for their ‘different personalities’.
‘Lumiere is too big to take to bed with me, but she doesn’t mind when I spend time with the others,’ Amanda explains.
‘Some objectum sexual people believe that their partners talk to them, but I know that Lumiere communicates differently.
‘She doesn’t exist or live in the way we do; they give off energy to show me how they’re feeling.’
Wedding planning commences now after Amanda popped the question back on Valentine’s Day in 2016. She hopes that by speaking out about her bond with Lumiere, she’ll normalise relationships with objects.
Amanda said: ‘People often can’t understand that this is just a natural orientation for me, that I can find the beauty in objects and can sense their energy.
‘I want others to see how happy the chandeliers make me, and how much they’ve enriched my life.
‘I’m doing this in the hope that people will understand our love, and if not understand it, maybe they could at least accept it.
‘I’m not hurting anyone by entering in to a relationship with them, I am simply just following my heart.’
