EPSOM, England, May 14 (UPI) -- A British couple obsessed with "Star Wars" said they decided to tie the knot dressed as Han Solo and Princess Leia as an homage to the epic saga.

Not only did groom Bramwell Brightey, 33, and bride Tamsyn Lofts, 29, attend the matrimonial event decked out in "Star Wars" duds, some of their guests jumped on board as well, sporting Chewbacca, Obi Wan Kenobi and Stormtroopers costumes, The Sun reported.

"We didn't want a traditional wedding, I get bored sitting in churches and listening to hymns and readings, so it would've been a bit hypocritical of us to have it in a church as we're not big church-goers," Brightey said.

The Epsom, England, newlyweds said they even decided to model their cake after Yoda and replace the traditional first dance with a lightsaber battle.
