A 'Shrek' Wedding, Because Everyone Deserves a Fairy Tale

Paul Bellas, a 42-year-old man, and Heidi Coxshall, a 30-year-old woman, tied the knot at a fairly typical wedding over the weekend in Jersey. There was nothing too odd about it, judging by the pictures: cake, vows, a minister and confetti. Oh, they were also dressed up like Shrek and Princess Fiona—and many of their guests were similar decked out—but, really, what's so weird about that? Everybody's got a different idea of what a fairytale is supposed to look like, and if this is Paul and Heidi's, then why not? And, to boot, it turns out the couple's 4-year-old son, Leo (who was dressed like Donkey) loves Shrek and inspired the theme so, again, why not? As the saying goes, "Shrek yourself before you wed yourself" ...

I feel like there are lots of reasons God desires for our children to come after we're married, but "so they can't act as your wedding planner" is a pretty solid rationale as well.

Well, they certainly got an unique reception! Most couples would have chosen something different for their wedding though, the choices on http://rogueregency.com are amazing and will make a strong impression on any wedding guest.

That is adorable when newlyweds have the same level of craziness. Especially I like that they, as a couple, think ahead about their child, their son Leo to make a marriage ceremony fun for him too! Was he a donkey in this fairytale?)) The story you create should be always as unique as your love is, with all the intimacy and deepness, with all the weirdness and wildness! This is the site that pushed me to the right decision with the concept of my own ceremony - http://www.weddingforward.com/. And I would be a real miser if I would not share it. Shared for memories, in the name of new memories!
