A Non-Native Native Wedding?

England Non-Native Native American Wedding Couple

The couple spent nine months making their wedding outfits.

“It’s not dressing up for us, this is who we are,” recently married Chrissie Holmes told the Daily Mail. Rather than a white dress for her wedding day, she, her groom, and the entire wedding party donned what the Mail called “traditional tribal” garb.

While the Mail reports the couples’ Native names are Little Bear and Walksslow, the couple—who live in a village called Blackfield south of Hampshire, England—aren’t Native; they are “Native American history-obsessed.”

“It’s been a long-term hobby and interest for both of us, so it just felt right to wear this on our wedding day,” Fred Sharman, the groom, told the Mail.

Commenters on the Daily Mail site had a wide range of thoughts on the couple’s choice of wedding attire, from noting how “politically incorrect” and “totally offensive” it was to “Good for you!” and “What a lovely wedding.”
