Nadia & Dale's wookiee boogie Star Wars wedding #Real Weddings: Global#australia#charities#costumes#gamers#geeky#sci-fi#star wars#uneven wedding party May 24 | Offbeat Editors offbeatempire Photos by Wedding Dream Services Check out some of the other Star Wars weddings Offbeat Bride has featured! The offbeat bride: Nadia, Web Designer Her offbeat partner: Dale, Programmer Date and location of wedding: Cedar Creek Estate Tamborine Mountain, Queensland — August 15, 2010 What made our wedding offbeat: We had a full Star Wars-themed wedding. The 501st legion acted as a guard of honour and raised $1000 for the Starlight Children's Foundation. I bought an R2-D2 projector that acted as ring bearer, we had a Jabba the Hutt wedding cake, I painted planets from the Star Wars Galaxy for all the tables, and all the guests dressed up in Star Wars attire. Tell us about the ceremony: Every entrance was matched to John Williams' score. The stormtroopers entered to Darth Vader's theme, along with Dale's dad as celebrant, then Dale entered to the Throne Room score at the end of Episode IV. The Princess Leia flower girls and my handmaiden of honour entered to the pretty Across the Stars love theme while I entered the chapel with my dad in a Jedi costume (and the beard he grew for the wedding) at the musical climax of the love theme. It was all timed really well and just tons of fun. My favorite moment: My favorite moment was my dad reading my sister's speech. She couldn't attend, but the speech was really lovely. I also loved Dale's speech to me since it was off-the-cuff and funny. Everything was stress-free. My funniest moment: R2-D2 coming down the aisle. It has this issue where it screams every metre or so, so it would move a little way up the aisle, scream, then move a bit closer. Beats a small child any day. Was there anything you were sure was going to be a total disaster that unexpectedly turned out great? I thought the guests might not dress up, but almost everyone came in crazy costumes that were really surprising and funny. My second cousin came as a male Princess Leia and that was one of the great photo moments. My advice for offbeat brides: Pay attention to the details, and if your partner has a crazy idea like having stormtroopers line up along the back of the church, go with it.
