Couple Marries In Trek-themed Wedding

1 min read

Two British Star Trek fans married in a Trek-inspired ceremony.

Kim Henderson and Gordon Florence wore ceremonial white uniforms as seen at the Riker-Troi wedding in Star Trek: Nemesis. Their seven-month-old daughter Jadzia also wore a uniform.

The couple met at a Manchester comic-con two years ago, but both were dressed as different sci-fi characters; Kim as Princess Leia, and Gordon as Doctor Who‘s The Master.

“I’ve always known I wanted a Star Trek-themed wedding since I was a lot younger,” said Kim. “This is great though with lots of our guests dressed as Star Trek characters or in their favorite characters costumes.”

“It’s great to see people making an effort and seeing Jadzia dressed as a mini Kim,” said Gordon.

“I did not expect a standard wedding from these two,” said best man Alex Hayes-Newook. “They aren’t a traditional couple; they are out of this world. They’re made for each other — I could not imagine them without one another — the three of them are a golden family.”

The couple’s home is filled with Star Trek memorabilia, with only the bathroom and the kitchen Star Trek-free. To see a short video featuring their Trek collection, head to the link located here.

  1. Y’know, sometimes you can say “made for each other” without meaning it in a positive way. But hey, whatever floats their boat. I’m sure this is how their parents envisioned their respective offspring’s wedding.

  2. Posting on a Star Trek fan site making fun of people for being serious Star Trek fans…

  3. I was fortunate to be invited to take part in their special day. It was a great wedding followed by an equally brilliant reception, I have never seen a couple more suited to each other and know they will LLLAP

  4. Congratulations to the happy couple! It’s great when people find someone who shares their passions and their joys.nnI know a couple who replaced the traditional “couple’s first dance” with a lightsaber duel, and their wedding is still fondly remembered, even years later.

  5. LLLAP? nnnJadzia is a nice name. nnnAre compression phaser rifles really appropriate at a wedding?
