Theme weddings are nothing new, but the nuptials of Jossie Sockertopp and Sonnie Gustavsson were out of this world. The two were married in a Klingon ceremony at a Star Trek convention in London. The bride and groom wore prosthetic foreheads and wigs, to look like the aliens from the series.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Theme weddings are nothing new, but then there are some nuptials that can be out of this world. A bride and groom were married at a Star Trek convention in London. It was a Klingon ceremony. The bride and groom wore prosthetic foreheads and wigs, you know, to look like the aliens from the series. Part of the ceremony was even delivered in Klingon language. The officiant(ph) said that was challenging, but at least Klingon is similar to Welsh. It's MORNING EDITION.
