Every girl dreams of a fairy tale wedding but probably not like this. 40 year-old bride, Christine England married her 44 year-old fiance Keith in full costume as the characters from the movie Shrek.

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.'

I'm not sure what to make of the bride's comment about her husband looking "just like Shrek" but she did marry him. It must be love.
