Couple stage unique wedding themed on Doctor Who

An Aldershot couple didn’t just travel down the aisle together but also attempted to go through time and space with their Doctor Who-themed wedding.
Peter and Becky Strachan-Buckley held their sci-fi ceremony on Saturday April 25 at Shalford Village Hall, south of Guildford.

The couple and their guests dressed as beloved and recognisable characters from the series.
In top hat and tails, Mr Strachan-Buckley dressed as the 11th doctor, portrayed by Matt Smith, and his wife dressed as Clara, the Doctor’s companion, in outfits from their favourite episode set in Victorian London.
The 34-year-old told Get Hampshire: “It took us a little while to decide on a theme. We started off thinking we would do just sci-fi but then settled on Doctor Who.

“All the wedding guests dressed up with varying degrees of dedication.

“They could come as characters from the show or just people from different time periods which the Doctor visited. This meant we had people from the wild west right up to modern times.

“We had people coming as River Song, the fourth Doctor played by Tom Baker, the 10th doctor played by David Tennant plus Captain Jack and Gwen from Torchwood.

“We chose to dress as the Doctor and Clara from the 2012 Christmas episode where she is a governess in Victorian times so Becky had the navy gown and I got to wear a top hat.”
A life-size dalek was also at the reception and acted as an honorary waiter, offering champagne rather than an extermination.

The couple said they instantly bonded over a love of science fiction, with Doctor Who being at the top of their lists, and the relationship sparked from there.

Mr Strachan-Buckley said: “We have been together for more than five years and leading up to the wedding our house was full of mini Tardises as they held a crucial role as table decoration.

“We got engaged on February 29 2012 and, as it was a leap year, Becky asked me.”

The couple also turned heads leaving the Guildford registry office on Saturday morning as they did so in a Tardis on the back of a trailer.

The couple’s cake was topped with sugared versions of themselves in character.
