The Borg Arrive At The UK’s First Klingon Wedding
Swedish Star Trek fans Josefin and Sonnie traveled all the way to London to exchange vows in what is now the UK’s first Klingon wedding! Wearing traditional red Klingon wedding robes with full Klingon forehead prosthetics, the couple married at east London’s ExCel Centre at the first official Star Trek convention in Britain in more than a decade. Entering to the drumming of a huge kong, the couple had the full attention of every nearby Trekkie. The truly in love couple, appropriately concluded their ceremony with the Klingon cry which translates to life, honour and success.
Charlotte, the talented owner of the London based Restoration Cake, provided the couple’s incredible Borg inspired three-tired wedding cake. “This is definitely the biggest and most complex Wedding Cake that I have ever created, ” Charlotte adds, “I am not at all scared of a challenge and when tested to put my principles of giving a couple EXACTLY what they want on their big day, I am there with piping bag at the ready!”
The cake was made of panels of fondant icing, airbrushed and decorated with hand-piped ‘pipes’, the bottom tier taking approximately seven hours to hand-pipe. The whole structure was then assembled to appear as if each cube was hovering over the other. The middle tier was the real cake (replaced by a dummy version later) and made of Charlotte’s famous Red Velvet cake. View more photos Charlotte’s amazing cake work here.
