Super loud purple and red wedding dress getup

April 28, 2009

I’m not opposed to color for wedding dresses, but this is a perfect example of the need to edit!! Hat? Gloves? Fur stole? Purple AND  red? She looks like she’s going to a meeting with the red hat ladies, oh dear. As always, to each their own, she is happy and that’s all that matters, but this look is definitely not my taste!!

From the Daily Mail:

It was a fairytale wedding of sorts. Just not the sort that most little girls dream about.

The bride looked every inch the princess – as in the ogre princess Fiona from the Shrek films – and the groom was tall, dark green and handsome.

Hospice nurse Christine England, 40, married her fiance Keith, 44, in full costume and make-up in front of 100 guests who were also in fancy dress.

The new Mr and Mrs Green (yes, really), of Barnstaple, Devon, had spent three hours having their make-up done before walking down the aisle.

Christine said: ‘The idea just came to me. I knew what we would go as because Keith looks just like Shrek.

‘It was funny because when we said our vows Keith had these green ears sprouting from the top of his head.’

She tried to get her 18-year-old son to dress up as Donkey, another character from the offbeat cartoon fairytale, but said ‘he wasn’t having any of it’.

Mr Green, a builder – who doesn’t seem to mind being likened to an ogre – added: ‘It was a very strange experience to say the least, but a thoroughly enjoyable one. We love the films and my wife tells me I bear a resemblance to Shrek.’

The couple hired a make-up artist to make them look like the characters – voiced by Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz – in the hit films.

Christine’s mother Annette England, 66, said: ‘It’s not necessarily how you imagine seeing your daughter get married but it was great fun.’
