Grace Gelder explores the motivations and practicalities of a self marriage, what it feels like afterwards and what happens when the whole world finds out about it. Grace Gelder lives in London where she works as a photographer and arts workshop facilitator. After completing an MA in Documentary Photography in China, she has been facilitating participatory photography and video workshops with a range of groups, often collaborating with charities and organisations that support women’s empowerment and wellbeing. Since her Self Marriage unexpectedly went viral in 2014 she has been bringing her love of ritual, and reflections from her own experiences of being in the media into her photographic projects.
