For the past decade, Jodi Rose from Australia has been traveling across the world for her Singing Bridges musical project. She has visited dozens of bridges worldwide, recording the vibrations in bridge cables with contact microphones. She uses these to create experimental music.

But when Rose encountered the bridge named Le Pont du Diable in France, better known as ‘The Devil’s Bridge’, she decided this was ‘the one’. According to an article by the Daily Mail, a British daily middle-market newspaper published in London in a tabloid format, she fell head over heels for the ‘sensual’ 14th century stone structure. She decided to marry the bridge. The wedding ceremony was blessed by the mayor of neighboring town Saint-Jean-de-Fos and was attended by 14 guests.
According to Rose, she feels the bridge’s presence and strong embrace although it has been struggling to express its feelings. “He makes me feel connected to the earth and draws me to rest from my endless nomadic wanderings. He is fixed, stable, rooted to the ground, while I am nomadic, transient, ever on the road,” she said. Rose wore a custom bridal gown and veil. She also commissioned rings for both her and the bridge. The bride described their love as “a love that embraces the vagaries of life.”

Unilad, a British Internet media company and website owned by LADbible Group, states that Rose is one of the many people in the world who feel a physical and romantic attraction to inanimate objects. This attraction is known as object sexuality or objectophilia. In an interview, Rose stated that people should be more open-minded and accepting of other people’s sexuality. “There’s someone for everyone. Or maybe even a few someones. Or some bridges. Or chandeliers. Or pool toys. Something, someone for everyone. It just proves that there is no limit to love and to the way you can feel love, experience love and express love,” she said.
