Robot wedding takes place in the World’s first

The two robots were married at a press event in Tokyo.
Crowds gathered to watch as the two robots tied the knot at an unconventional ceremony in Japan.

The bizarre spectacle saw the ‘bride’ Yukirin – an android designed to look like Japanese pop idol Yuki Kashiwagi, marry the ‘groom’ Frois – a red robot with a bucket-shaped head, at an unorthodox wedding ceremony at Tokyo’s Aoyama Cay on June 27th.

The happy couple were married by a third robot called Pepper, a customer support robot that can more traditionally be found operating in mobile phone stores in Tokyo.

The wedding came complete with a cake, a wedding band ( comprised of more robots, naturally ) and even a shared kiss between the bride and groom in front of crowds of intrigued onlookers.
