There will be a mass wedding celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, UK’s longest running TV series.

In honor of the event, 50 couples from all over the world, including the US and Canada, will be traveling to London, England to get married on November 24, 2013. The mass ceremony will be taking place the day after the extended anniversary episode airs. The episode will include current Doctor and companion, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, along with David Tennant, John Hurt and Billie Piper.

The ceremony will take place in the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, along with a Doctor Who themed buffet, while the band will play music from the show. Members of the public are invited to attend.

As described by the official “Whovian” wedding site, each couple will receive a limousine to and from the hotel, commemorative rings special for the occasion, a bottle of champagne with labels highlighting the anniversary of Doctor Who, a framed photograph of the couple, and a customized wedding cake. There will also be an after party where characters of the show will be popping in to visit, and along with other competitions taking place throughout the night that offering everyone a chance to win prizes.

The cost of the wedding will depend on whether or not you are from the UK or traveling from abroad.

The celebration will be shown on Croydon TV, with global coverage of the special event, so fans who can’t attend will be able to watch, as well as enabling the special couples to record the event and relive the festivities over again.

Registration and application forms should be turned in by October 15, 2013. Fans seriously considering this opportunity should sign up as soon as possible as space is limited.
