By Claire McWethy

A sci-fi mad couple have tied the knot with a Star Wars themed wedding.

Jacqueline Gould and Andrew Lyle turned their venue, the Hop Farm in Paddock Wood, into a scene more resembling a galaxy far, far away, with everyone, including the registrar, attending in costume.

The pair, who live in Gillingham, exchanged their vows today, promising to love one another, in sith-ness and in health, til darth do them part.

The bride and groom even left the ceremony to the sound of the imperial march, under a light saber guard of honour, and swapped custom made rings with iconography from the cult films.

The date, May The Fourth, has long been adopted by fans as an official Star Wars day.

Speaking before the wedding, 30-year-old Miss Gould, who is from Maidstone, said: "We'll have everything from stormtroopers to Jedis to bounty hunters.

"Andrew's always been a big fan of the films, and while I'm not quite at the point where I can lip sync all the words I've watched them a lot. I didn't realise quite how much I liked Star Wars until we started planning the wedding though."
