Hello all.  My name is Martin.  I am honored to allowed to become a member of this forum.  I have been a member of Science Fiction fandom for the past 40 years. 
 My main reason for posting today is to ask for advise and help.  I have recently been ordained as a Certified Wedding Officiant in New York State, as well as the five Boroughs.  I am attempting to write a wedding ceremony in Klingon with an Human English translation so I may offer my services to the Empire at conventions should it arise.  I was hoping that someone would be able to assist me in this endeavor.
Please contact me here or by my email Silverpaladin67@aol.com
Thank you for your assistance.

Many years ago, I wrote a Klingon wedding. This was before Worf & Dax had the idea, so it bears no resemblance to the one seen on DS9. I designed it to be used in a strictly role play setting.

However a few years ago I was elected a Justice of the Peace, so I could in theory do a legal Klingon wedding, although I do not advertise that fact.

My ceremony is almost entirely in English, with a few Klingon poems (for want of a better term) interspersed to add flavor. I did this because I knew most of the audience would not be speakers of tlhIngan Hol, and of those that might recognize a phrase or two they would probably not be able to follow along with an entire ceremony. This would in most cases also include the bride and groom.

I think you could add a Klingon feel to the ceremony better with the room set up, music and costume and then do the ceremony in English.
