It's A WEDDING, JIM ... BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT

A bride and groom have boldly gone where no couple have gone before.

Josefin Sockertopp (23) and Sonnie Gustavsson (29) tied the knot at the UK's first Klingon wedding.

The pair travelled from Sweden to take part in the bizarre ceremony at the first official Star Trek convention to be held in Britain for over a decade.

The Klingons are a warrior race from the American science fiction series.

The happy couple got married at a ceremony at London's ExCel Centre in full Klingon costume to the sound of a drum.

They exchanged vows, swearing to unite against all their opponents.

The bride said she was persuaded by her husband to have a Klingon wedding and did not regret it. "It's a once in a life time thing," she said.
