Beam me up, Scotty!
This couple traveled from their native Sweden to tie the knot in Britain’s first Klingon wedding ceremony at a Star Trek convention in London on Friday.
Jossie Sockertopp, 23, and 29-year-old Sonnie Gustavsson married at the ”Destination Star Trek London” event, which will see 17,000 “trekkies” flock to London’s ExCel centre this weekend.
The couple met four years ago and came up with the idea for their wedding after watching an episode of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”, in which Klingon character Worf marries science officer Jadzia Dax in a traditional Klingon ceremony.
“We saw the clip from the series…and we thought it was very romantic about beating hearts and a battle for each other. We really liked it, that’s why we want to do this,” Sockertopp said.
It took around three months to plan the event.
