BRIDGEND, Wales, May 10 (UPI) -- A pair of Welsh fans of the film series "Shrek" dressed as the titular ogre and his bride, Princess Fiona, for their "Shrek"-themed wedding.

Viv and Tracey Williams of Bridgend said friends often told them they resembled the cartoon ogres so they decided to dress their wedding party as characters from the films, The Sun reported Monday.

"Everyone said I made a lovely Princess Fiona and Viv was the perfect Shrek," Tracey Williams, 33, said. "The best man was dressed as Monsieur Hood, my dad was Lord Farquaad, my mother was the Fairy Godmother and the maid of honor was Snow White."

Viv Williams, 53, said he and his bride are big fans of the film series.

"We watched the films, became addicted and when we decided to get married we both knew how we wanted the wedding to be," she said. "I wouldn't mind betting we have started a trend -- the whole family absolutely loved it. It looked amazing."
