A month after legally recognizing The Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster's head as a marriage celebrant, a couple has tied the noodle knot in the first official Pastafarian wedding. On a pirate ship in New Zealand. What an exciting time we live in.

Although they never considered marrying before, when the first Pastafarian marriage celebrant was sanctioned by the New Zealand government they decided the chance to hold a humorous and original wedding was too good to pass up.


The bride and groom wore head-to-toe pirate regalia, and guests donned eye-patches, pirate hats and feathers for the ceremony , which took place over the weekend.

Fenn also wore a colander on her head - the official headdress of the church.

During the ceremony, Ricketts and Fenn exchanged rings made of pasta, and in his vows Ricketts promised to always add salt while boiling spaghetti.

"It was an extremely fun wedding," said Fenn.

Well of course it was a fun wedding, it was a Pastafarian wedding on a pirate ship in New Zealand. If that isn't a fun wedding there's no such thing as a fun wedding. Personally, I have only been to unfun weddings. Usually in the dead of summer in a church that doesn't have air conditioning. That is not what Jesus would do. Also, nobody invites me to wedding anymore because word got out that every couples' wedding I've attended has broken up within the year. I'm not saying I'm bad luck, but I am saying I always yell 'YOU'LL NEVER LAST' when the couple is exchanging vows.

Keep going for a video in case you needed more of this.

Thanks to Dave, who wants to be the first person married on the moon. Me? I want to be the first person buried on the moon.
