The first ever robot wedding took place in Japan on June 27, with a glittering ceremony, complete with a wedding cake, a band and even a ‘kiss’ shared by the couple.

About 100 people gathered in Tokyo to witness the two robots tie the knot and Its reported that the crowds paid $81 to witness the historic occasion.

The groom was Frois, a robotic creation from company Maywa Denki, and the bride was humanoid Yukirin, an android made in the likeness of a Japanese pop idol Yuki Kashiwagi, and developed by Takayuki Todo.

Frois’s head is said to have been inspired by a bath stool, while there are considerably more sensible claims to fame by Yukirin, whose real version can be seen fronting the famous girl band AKB48. For the wedding, and possibly, for copyright reasons, the organizers had to change her name to Roborin according to ‘RT.com’.
