A wedding ceremony took place recently in Japan, with an unusual guest in place of the minister! The bride and groom became the first to be married by a robot!
50 guests attended the ceremony where the 4 foot tall robot, named I-Fairy, led the wedding with pigtails and a wreath of flowers around her head for the occasion.
It may seem odd to most, but robots are a huge part of the couple’s life. The bride works for the company that built the I-Fairy, that also build robotic dinosaurs that are often seen in museums or on tv, while the groom teaches robotics at a university.
The couple hopes that their wedding will encourage others to consider using robots in their own weddings, and in everyday events.
