Think you like Star Wars? Not as much as this couple. Duncan Thompson and Sammi Gardiner got married on Monday in a wedding with a top-to-bottom Star Wars theme.

The groom, 41 played Han Solo and the bride, 39, of course played Princess Leia. Thompson’s son Keiren who was best man, played Chewbacca, Solo’s furry sidekick.

Darth Vader, played by friend Dan Cawpheray, provided readings akin to Star Wars scripts and was accompanied by two Stormtroopers.

Thompson and Gardiner sent out invitations to George Lucas and all the main actors from the Star Wars movies, but none of them attended. Really? Mark Hamill actually had something better to do?

The Star Wars themed wedding came about because the couple’s first date in 2005 was to see Revenge of the Sith.

Best part of the wedding? The English couple waited until Monday so they could bill the wedding as “May the 4th be with you.” Get it? Heh.
