Emmajane Love, originally from Christchurch but living on the Gold Coast, had previously married herself on a beach ceremony in Australia in February.
The mass “solygamy” ceremony took place in a mansion in Phoenix, Arizona, on Sunday and gathered people from all over the world who were there to marry themselves.
