First Pastafarian Wedding

A video of the wedding vows on the first ever Pastafarian wedding has been released. The wedding took place in New Zealand where the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has been recognized.



"The bride and groom wore head-to-toe pirate regalia, and guests donned eye-patches, pirate hats and feathers for the ceremony.
"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."
