A Danish couple are such extreme fans that they decided to get married to a Star Wars theme.

Anna Toftdahl Olesen and Kira Bakholm Axelsen walked up the aisle to the love song from ‘Star Wars Attack of the Clones’, and took many of their wedding photos holding light sabers.

Toftdahl Olesen told Danish state broadcaster DR that the couple had met during a Star Wars live role playing game where they had played the lovers Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker.

“Star Wars is something that my wife and I have together,” Toftdahl Olesen told Danish state broadcaster DR. “We met each other through Star Wars, when were were role-playing. Our characters were in love with each other, so we fell in love too.” 
 
Toftdahl Olesen said she had considered going up the aisle in the brown tunic she wore during the role-playing but eventually plumped for more traditional wedding attire. 
 
“We were ready to go, but it couldn’t all be about Star Wars,” she said.

Danish police respond to heated Star Wars fight

The Force is strong with these two. Intelligence and common decency? Perhaps not so much.

A heated – and apparently very drunken – dispute over the strength of the Republic in the Star Wars films led to an unusual call for police in Fredericia over the weekend. 
 
Two young men, aged 17 and 18, were arguing so vehemently that nearby neighbours resorted to reporting them to the police. When South Jutland Police responded to the call at 5.10am on Sunday morning, they tried to calm the Star Wars fanatics. 
 
“We did indeed encounter two people who were yelling and screaming at each other. It turned out to be two people who knew each other but were in an extremely drunken state,” local police spokesman Peter Balsgaard told TV2 News.
 
“And the thing they were so loudly discussing were their differing opinions on the strength of the Republic in Star Wars,” he added. 
 
 
Police officers decided to charge the more vociferous of the two with disturbing the peace but the young man initially refused to give his name, instead claiming to be a Sith Lord. 
 
“He said his name was Count Dooku,” Balsgaard said, referring to the once Jedi Master who had gone over to the Dark Side and is featured in Episodes II and III.
 
The teenager eventually gave his real name and was slapped with a fine. 
 
Whether the two young men ever agreed on the Republic remains uncertain.
