They had met in a nudist holiday three years ago and they had their honeymoon in a naturalist community in France. A naturist community is where people prefer living naked. Their wedding was also organized by a naturalist group. So what this couple did was actually what they loved; but they have generated several comments in the social media community as many people see this as extremely weird.
A couple married naked in front of 40 naked guests and a naked officiator.
Nigel Seymour, 59, and his now-wife Rachel, 30, met on a nudist holiday three years ago.
The couple enjoyed a whirlwind romance before getting engaged after just six months.
Nigel, a car restorer, proposed to Rachel in front of 400 naked strangers while on a trip.
The holiday was organised by British Naturism – a society for people who prefer living naked.
Rachel, a care assistant, and her husband Nigel, decided they would be married while naked, surrounded by their closest friends and family.
Rachel said: “Our naked wedding made perfect sense, as it meant I didn’t have to spend £1,000 on a wedding dress.
“Getting married in the buff with your friends and family is still just as magical an experience.
“It felt really freeing.
“We met in the buff, Nigel proposed in the buff and we had a ceremony naked. It closed the chapter.”
Rachel joked that all guests had to bring to her “fun” naked wedding was a towel and sun cream.
Nigel added: “The reaction we’ve had from friends and family who did not attend the blessing was very much, ‘That’s not for us but you carry on and let us know how you get on’.
“But we loved every minute of it.”
The couple had asked around to find an officiator who would conduct the ceremony naked.
The person they found was not a naturist, but agreed to go nude for the occasion.
After their wedding, the couple set off for a naked honeymoon in the world’s largest naturist village in France.
Being naked feels normal to Rachel, who grew up with a naturist father named Harvey Allen.
Harvey Allen, 74, was the photographer at his daughter’s wedding.
Whereas, Nigel only entered the lifestyle nine years ago at the age of 50.
He said: “What I liked was that you had no idea what people did in their day-to-day lives – whether they were a judge, a doctor, or a police officer.
“Being naked just levels everyone out.”
Nigel says it doesn’t matter what race, size or career you have in the nude as “nobody judges you”.
For their legal ceremony, the couple decided to wear clothes, Daily Star reports
