Flintstones Themed Double Wedding

August 26, 2009

From The Norwich Evening News:

“I Yabba Dabba Do at Flinstone’s Wedding”

It started with a tipsy joke, but ended with a full-blown Bedrock wedding as the perfect way to lay the foundations of a new life together.

For their special day, two Norfolk couples decided to turn to the Stone Age for inspiration and recreated the children’s cartoon show The Flintstones by dressing up its main characters.

Andrea and Simon Bean, aka Fred and Wilma Flinstone, and Richard and Jill Noble, aka Barney and Betty Rubble, celebrated their double wedding at Weston Park Golf Club on Saturday by taking a quick trip to the next door dinosaur park for some spectacular wedding photographs sure to raise eyebrows on any mantelpiece.

With 165 guests dressed as cavemen and women, two best men dressed as dinosaurs, and a spectacular tiered wedding rock cake, both Wilma and Betty entered the ceremony to the traditional organ sound of Wagner’s Bridal March.

However, this was quickly replaced by an organ version of The Flintstones theme tune.

Mrs Bean, nee Thurston, who lives in Grange Close, Hoveton, said: “It was a fantastic day and all the guests made such an effort.

“We had so much fun and the registrars were absolutely brilliant.

“We’ve all been married before so we didn’t want the traditional white wedding.”

The couples are close, as the new Mrs Noble, of Starston in South Norfolk, is Mr Bean’s sister, and the idea was borne out of a fun stay at Alton Towers theme park, when they joked about Mr Noble laughing like Barney Rubble and ended up calling each other by the names of the four main characters.

Mrs Bean, 36, said: “We have been criticised by some people as not taking the wedding seriously, but we did take our vows very seriously.

“Some people out there don’t agree with it, but a lot of people enjoyed it and agreed with what we decided we wanted to do.”

The couple’s outfits were made by Future Couture and the ladies’ hair done by Chinelo’s Hair Studio, both in Magdalen Street.

Instead of wedding presents, the couples asked guests to donate money to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation and raised more than £1,200 on the day.

The charity is close to Mrs Bean’s heart as her son Sam, now 15, had a liver transplant when he was just eight months old and she has since raised about £27,000 for the cause.

Mrs Bean, who works for her new husband’s stainless steel products company Greasebusters, said: “My son wouldn’t be here today if somebody hadn’t donated their liver to him, so I’m always urging people to sign up for organ donation too

Wedding Logo Overload

July 30, 2009

The pictures of this wedding come from the blog of the bride’s best friend, who writes: “If you’re looking for wedding logos stamped all over everything like Chinese water torture thumped into your head over and over, you’ve come to the right place.”

The bride spent months making nine of these boutonnieres herself, which is impressive:

My favorite caption from the blog: ” And without further ado, here’s a picture of me and Bridezilla herself. The reason she’s smiling in this picture is because I told her that she will be crapping turds on her wedding night – with the logo on them.”

“Peter Pan” Randy Constan marries Tinkerbell

July 29, 2009

If you’re not already familiar with internet celebrity Randy Constan, or “Peter Pan” as he likes to be called, get familiar. Randy’s website rose to quasi-fame several years ago largely due to the extensive library of photos he has posted of him posing in various costumes. A friend of mine sent me the link to his website about five years ago, and I have to say, its not the costumes that I found unnerving, it was the Anton Chigurr/Dorothy Hamill hairdo. I mean, the guy is in his fifties!!   I all but forgot about him until TW reader Kathleen sent me the link to his wedding.  He was looking for his “Tinkerbell” even then (that was the purpose for the website in the first place, to find a girlfriend) , and I’m glad he finally found someone. To each his own…

First, let me thank Eva for sending me these pictures. These, my friends, are the good stuff, the reason why this little blog exists.  I don’t think I have laughed this hard in a while. Just when I think I have seen it all… the worst of the worst, the most tasteless, over the top, godawful spectacles around… one of my fabulous readers sends me this wedding, and I am proven SO wrong. I love this wedding. Very, very much.
