U.K. Couple Channels SHREK for their Wedding
Newlyweds Tracey and VivIan Williams celebrated their May 10 wedding by dressing up as their favorite couple, Shrek and Princess Fiona. The Welsch couple painted their faces and bodies completely GREEN, in addition to fake ears and homemade SHREK costumes. Tracey and Vivian added the SHREK touch to the rest of the wedding party. The bride's parents dressed up as Lord Farquaad and Fairy Godmother, while the best man portrayed Monsieur Hood.
According to People.com, the couple's first date was one of the SHREK movies. “Even though Shrek and Fiona are both green ogres, we didn’t take it offensively because we like them so much," Tracey told Britain's Daily Mail. "We watched the films, became addicted and when we decided to get married we both knew how we wanted the wedding to be,” Vivian added. "The whole family absolutely loved it. It looked amazing."
