A movie-obsessed couple hosted a “Star Wars”-themed wedding — which ended in a surprise appearance from the famous storm troopers themselves.
Kate and Edward Coates of West Yorkshire, England, tied the knot in a wedding ceremony in Baildon, United Kingdom, on May 28, 2023.
The 38-year-old “Star Wars” obsessed bride told news agency SWNS that the couple wanted to incorporate the popular movie series into their special day in any way they could — as it was something that drew them to one another while dating.
The wedding included “Star Wars” decorations such as Darth Vader and storm trooper hats, “Star Wars” socks for the groomsmen, a Princess Leia figure in the bride’s bouquet and a themed wedding cake.
The bride even wore R2D2 Heely shoes under her white wedding dress.
The real stars of the show, however, came during the reception — when two hired storm troopers arrived to escort the couple to the dance floor, according to SWNS.
The two storm troopers cost roughly $250 each, the bride said, noting that the couple knew they wanted storm troopers to make an appearance on their big day.

“From start to finish, it was just perfect,” she said.
