British Wedding, Star Wars Geek Style

"That's no moon. That's a wedding."

It was possibly the geekiest wedding ever. Two British Star Wars fans had a Star Wars themed wedding this past Monday (May 4th).

According to a story in The (London) Daily Mail, bride Sammi Gardiner was dressed as Princess Leia, while Duncan Thomson was dressed as Han Solo.

At least Thomson didn't dress up as Luke Skywalker, since that would have been, well, weird.

Not like the rest of the wedding.

  • Sammi's ring was engraved with the phrase, "May the 4th be with you."

  • There were 50 Jedis and Sith Lords in attendance.

  • Chewbacca was the best man.

  • The Star Wars theme was played as the wedding march.

  • They walked under a light saber honor guard.


  • But hey, geeky wedding or not, you have to appreciate the sentiment. It's always great when two Star Wars geeks fans get together.



    All they needed was a vow that said "no matter how hard you squeeze, I won't slip through your fingers," and the geek factor would have hit 11.
