Kate Cunningham who married her wooden soulmate in 2019 says their love is still growing strong after three years of marriage.
Kate Cunningham changed her surname to Elder after her wedding to her wooden soulmate in 2019.
And she insists they are more loved-up than ever this festive season.
According to Dailystar, Kate said: “People still ask questions and are still unsure of my motivations. I get asked, ‘has being married changed your life for the better?’ Yes, it has!
“‘Do you love the tree?’ Yes, I do!”
Kate visits the tree up to five times a week and has decorated it for Christmas, with a wreath, tinsel and baubles.
But don’t tell the tree she has a human boyfriend – although he insists he is comfortable with the arrangement.
Kate will leave her family at home on Boxing Day to spend it in the welcoming branches of her other half.
And the 37-year-old said her love has only grown since their wedding at Rimrose Valley Country Park in Sefton, Merseyside.
The former teaching assistant admitted that she sometimes pays the tree up to five visits a week. She said: “It’s our third Christmas together, so it almost feels like a tradition to get the decorations out for it.
“When I was putting them up, the tree was as attractive to me as ever in the bright December sun.
“I made the wreath from holly, ivy, pine and red winter berries which I foraged from a walk over the weekend.
“Plus, I added a little spray of festive glitter.”
Kate, from the nearby village of Melling, knew the elder tree was “the one” due to its earthly energy drawing her in.
