Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to marry you to your sweetheart. Say, what? You read that correctly … the Riddlesbrood can marry you! We now have on-staff officiates, ordained by the Universal Life Church, who’re qualified to perform your ceremony … and, yes, it’s perfectly legal!
Want to be married by a wise-cracking gangster? A swashbuckling pirate? A flashy super hero? A clever comedian? Maybe a creepy zombie? Or simply an actor/U.L.C. ordained minister dressed in a tux or Bermuda shorts? No problem! Our accomplished officiants can appear in any form you wish. Indeed, Clyde P. Riddlesbrood, himself, (our esteemed founder) is eager to adorn his luxurious purple cloak and regal top hat to marry you in grandiose style!
“I wanted to offer more services to my customers.” said Ryan Long (a.k.a., Clyde P. Riddlesbrood), founder and Executive Director of the troupe. “In the past, Riddlesbrood has been able to provide, not only entertainment, but also just about anything else a couple needed to make their wedding reception an extraordinary experience. However, whenever we were asked if we could perform the ceremony, I’d always have to say, no. Now, I can gladly say, yes! Myself and our Touring Director, Armand Marino, are authorized to officiate your wedding ceremony.”
“I chose to become ordained by Universal Life Church because they welcome people of all backgrounds and beliefs.” Marino explained. “They’ve been around since 1959 and have millions of members all over the world. I really enjoy helping couples take their first steps into life together.” According to the U.L.C. church, “ordained ministers are granted all the rights and privileges afforded to clergy members of other faiths – including the ability to perform legal wedding ceremonies.”*
“We can customize your ceremony any way you wish.” Clyde added. “We can marry you the traditional way, clothed in a suit and tie using conventional language, or we can serve dressed in a theme-appropriate costume and recite language that either you, or we, have written which supports your wedding vision.”
Perhaps you’d like to exchange your vows in Klingonese in front of guests dressed as Star Fleet ensigns and officers? Or you might want to say, “I do” in Dothraki while dressed in Westeros-style garb in front of a Medieval castle? Perhaps you’re a fan of the Roaring ‘20s and you envision your guests dancing the Charleston adorned in flapper dresses with feather boas and pin-striped suits with fedora hats?
Whether you’ve been dreaming of a traditional walk down the aisle or you’d rather walk the plank dressed in pirate attire, Riddlesbrood is your one-stop shop for everything you need for either your classic or nontraditional themed wedding. We can help personalize your wedding to showcase you and your fiancé’s unique (some might even say, “bizarre”) style!
No matter what particular style communicates you and your fiancé’s mutual interests, we can help you share that special bond with your guests starting from pre-planning all the way through the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. The Riddlesbrood Touring Theater Company can furnish decorations, props, and theatrical settings, such as an ancient castle, a rustic pirate ship, a western saloon, a haunted house, or a jumping gin-joint speakeasy, to name only a few. We can set it up and leave, or we can join your party to provide continuous merriment with walk-around costumed characters, or perhaps even an entire show to entertain your guests like a puzzling murder mystery or interactive game show. And, if you still want to chicken dance or do the Macarena, we can also provide a D.J. with any type of music.
Riddlesbrood Touring Theater Company has been planning events and entertaining audiences for 18 years. We look forward to helping you make your traditional, or nontraditional themed wedding dreams come true. For more information, please visit our Themed Weddings Page or call us at 866-276-6399.
