London, Feb 26 (ANI): A couple in England had an interesting wedding - they tied the knot in a comic-themed ceremony.

The bride was asked, “do you take this Superman to be your husband?” as she tied the knot in Worcester.

Rob Taverner, 32, was dressed as the superhero while Nyssa Pratten, 19, was dressed as Jessica Rabbit.

And the two best men dressed as Captain America and Supergirl at the ceremony.

Bride Pratten walked down the aisle to the ‘Star Wars’ theme, and after confirming their nuptials the happy couple left to the famous ‘Looney Tunes’ exit music.

Taverner said he initially came up with the idea of a cartoon wedding at Worcester Register Office as a joke - but his wife-to-be loved the idea.

The self confessed geek wore the blue Superman top underneath a suit jacket - and donned Clarke Kent style specs.

Bride Pratten wore a revealing red dress as she imitated curvy cartoon siren Jessica Rabbit, voiced by Kathleen Turner in the 1988 movie.

Among the guests were people dressed as the Incredible Hulk, Betty Boop, Tweety-Pie and Catwoman at the wedding with a difference.

“Everybody came in fancy dress - there were about 70 people in different outfits, it was a really colourful gathering,” the Daily Mail quoted Taverner as saying. (ANI)
