Christine England, 40, and Keith Green, 44, of Barnstaple, England, used green paint and costumes to turn themselves into Princess Fiona and Shrek while guests at the wedding dressed as other characters from the animated films, including Donkey and the Gingerbread Man, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

I knew what we would go as them because Keith looks just like Shrek." The couple said they hired a makeup artist to design their wedding getup. "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 have resemblance to Shrek," Green said.
