A British couple dressed up as Shrek and Fiona for their wedding -- green face/body paint and all! The couple not only wanted to have a unique "fairytale wedding," but they also wanted to raise money for charity -- so that's just what they did.
Since the couple had multiple friends die from cancer and the man's sister recently battled breast cancer, they decided that raising money for cancer awareness would be great for them to do in conjunction with their nuptials. They held a fundraiser earlier in the year but they wanted to do something more. As they brainstormed, "Shrek" came on the television. The couple looked at one another and both started laughing.
The couple decided to ask their wedding guests to donate money to a cancer charity rather than give them gifts. The couple raised over $3,000 -- and made international news. The wedding guests all dressed up as fairy tale couples making this one very fun, very successful wedding!
