A woman has married herself, and used a handheld mirror to say her vows. Australian-born Linda Doktar decided that she had suffered enough heartbreak in her life, and took matters into her own hands.

The 43-year-old decided to marry herself in an intimate beach ceremony with three of her closest friends, where she declared her love for herself into a mirror. Linda told the Metro newspaper: "I thought this was a beautiful concept to symbolise my journey into loving and honouring myself on a deeper level. I believe that the most important relationship I will ever have is with myself. I know and understand that the quality of the relationship we have with ourselves determines the quality of experiences we have with others."
