Noodly Nuptials: World’s First Pastafarian Wedding Took Place and It Was Pirate-Themed!
The world’s first Pastafarian wedding — based on the religion parody, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster — has finally happened. The themed marriage ceremony took place aboard a pirate ship in New Zealand and the lucky couple, Toby Rickets and Marianna Young, exchanged vows administered by a “ministeroni."
The entire wedding was pasta- and pirate-themed with the couple in full pirate regalia exchanging rings made from pasta (also known as “ringatoni”).
"When it came time for the kiss, the bride and groom slurped up either end of a noodle until their lips met," the Associate Press noted.
As for the wedding feast? Of course there was mostly pasta, but some wedding cake was present as well.
"I would never have agreed to a conventional marriage, but the idea of this was too good to pass up,” the bride told local reporters.
Last December, New Zealand approved the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster as “suitable to officiate for weddings,” so we imagine we’ll be seeing more macaroni matrimonies in the future.
