May the 4th Be With You

 

Updated : May 6, 2009

In keeping with our wedding theme today VeryHappyPig brings you news of a wedding with a difference.

A Star Wars obsessed couple themed their wedding on the films with the groom playing Han Solo and the bride Princess Leia.

Duncan Thomson, 41, and Sammi Gardiner, 39, got married surrounded by friends and family all dressed as characters from the sci-fi movies.

And they chose Monday as the date for the service, so they could bill it as "May the 4th be with you", the Daily Telegraph revealed.

The couple, from the Isle of Wight, even invited the movie's director George Lucas, who wrote back to them saying he couldn't make it.

During the wedding in Shanklin on the island, Mr Thomson told his bride: "I promise to protect you from carbon freezing and promise to protect you from the Dark Side, through hyperspace and into the far reaches of the galaxy."

Mr Thomson, an amateur astrologist, said: "We had both been married before with traditional services and wanted to do something a bit different and fun to put a smile on everyone's face."

The couple had to remove certain Star Wars references from the 20-minute civil service because Jedi is a recognised religion, he added.

The bride's ring was made out of meteorite found in Canyon Diablo in the US, engraved with: "May the 4th be with you."

Following the ceremony, the couple departed for a honeymoon on a cruise to the Mediterranean, with a special guard of honour using light sabres.

Sammi, an IT worker, said: "The films brought us together and are something that our families, young and old, have always loved."
