Welsh couple Tracey and Vivian Williams had guests green with envy when they got hitched in a Shrek-themed wedding. Covered head-to-toe in green paint, fake ogre ears, wigs and dressed in outfits resembling Fiona and Shrek, the newlyweds opted for the ogre theme as Shrek was what they saw on their first date. However, they weren’t out of place: other family and friends also dressed as characters from the film.
Dressed to the nines in white and black wetsuits, a New York couple very literally took the plunge when they entered a steel cage and were lowered into a shark tank to exchange their wedding vows.
