After going through a turbulent romance with Kristen Stewart, it looks like Robert Pattinson may have finally found the women of his dreams.

Twilight fan Lauren Adkins 'married' the British actor in Las Vegas.

Although the 25-year-old wasn't lucky enough to bag the real thing, she did say 'I do' to a life-size cardboard cut-out of Pattinson's fictional character, Edward Cullen, last year.

Adkins organised her big day herself and there was even a hen party, a wedding gown, an engagement ring and invitations sent out to 50 guests.

Before the £2,000 ceremony, which included a traditional minister, a champagne reception and five-tier cake, the bride couldn't hold back her excitement.

"I'm going through all the steps a normal bride does. It's absolutely real," she said on the day.

However, a quick visit to her website reveals that the bizarre nuptials may have been part of a performance art project looking at "the female escapist fantasy [of] finding 'true love'".

"I've used film and television's representations of the love story and female characters in general in an attempt to understand my own expectations of romantic love," she wrote.

"Because of personal attachment to and experience with this fantasy or quest, which took a particularly strong hold of me when I discovered the intensely popular Twilight Saga, my thesis exhibition will touch on romantic expectation primarily through the main love interest, Edward Cullen."

But while many were left confused by their wedding, the Adkins insists that they couldn't be happier.

"I'm sure we're happier than most newlyweds," she told The Mirror. "People might think I'm crazy but my flat-pack R-Patz is the closest I'll get to the real thing and he's the one for me."
