A 38-year-old woman from the United Kingdom is celebrating a milestone, as she recently reached her one year anniversary with the tree she married in 2019.
Mother of two Kate Cunningham said ‘I do’ to an elder tree at Rimsose Valley Country Park in order to bring attention to how green spaces in the area were being destroyed.
The Daily Mail reports that she changed her last name by deed poll to ‘Elder’ after the species of tree she married.

The marriage idea began as a way to prevent the local government from building a bypass road that would run through the Valley.
“The spark for this idea came when it was announced that road was going to be built,” she told the outlet. “I’ve been a protester marching in street demonstrations with thousands of other people but it doesn’t attract enough attention from people.
“I want people to engage with the campaign and raise questions about the destruction of our green space. There are plenty of local people who aren’t even aware of what is happening.”
