An Aussie Star Wars Wedding

From the Official Star Wars blog:

Star Wars fans Nadia and Dale from Queensland, Australia tied the knot in with Jedi, stormtroopers, droids and Jawas in attendance. There’s even a Jabba the Hutt cake!

Cute couple!

Says the bride, Nadia We had a full Star Wars-themed wedding. The 501st legion acted as a guard of honor 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.

What's more romantic/threatening than stormtroopers?

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 honor 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) [awww!] at the musical climax of the love theme. It was all timed really well and just tons of fun.

This is ridiculously funny


This is one of the better Star Wars-themed weddings, and it's especially great that they raised money for a charity.

Super cute, amirite?


Because I'm obsessive about donating to good causes, I noticed that Charity Navigator only gives the Starlight Children's Foundation two stars. Still, it's great that they used their wedding to raise money for others.


  1. I think this was featured in this special edition of People dedicated completely to weddings. I bought it in 2007 (and still have it) and I definitely remember the R2-D2 ring bearer.

    Most people wouldn't find a Jabba the Hut wedding cake all that appetizing, but I'll bet it's filled with some tasty chocolate layers. Yum! It looks like a groom's cake, though.

  2. 2007? I'm on the cutting edge of wedding news here! :)

    I'll bet you're right about the Jabba cake being the groom's cake. It's too small to be a full wedding cake.
