Devoted Paul Bellas, 42, painted himself green and wore monster ears and eyebrows for the movie-themed big day. Bride Heidi Coxshall, 30, dressed as Shrek's sweetheart Princess Fiona for the couple's wedding - which featured a cast of characters from the animated film, The Sun wrote. Their four-year-old son Leo dressed as Donkey, Shrek's best pal, while Heidi's brother John gave her away as Muffin Man from Shrek 2. Other guests turned up as fairytale characters Snow White, Cinderella and Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

Paul and Heidi Bellas walked up the aisle dressed as Shrek and Fiona.

Jersey law dictates the bride and groom have to be identified, so the registrar had to watch Paul having his green Shrek make-up put on before the ceremony at the Radisson Hotel.

The rest of the wedding party were dressed as fairytale characters.

Mr Bellas said the idea of doing a Shrek wedding came to them while watching the movie with their son Leo.

He said: "The essence is that Shrek represents true love. It doesn't matter who you are or what you look like, if the love is there then that is what it is about."

The couple had to get special permission to disguise their faces during a wedding ceremony from the home affairs minister, Senator Ian Le Marquand.

Mr Bellas said when he started telling his guests they would have to dress up there was a mixed reaction.

"I was standing at the altar, there were only three guests in the room and they were dressed up. As the lift opened these people started to sit down but there was one dressed as a Flintstone with big feet.

"I started jumping up and down with laughter, if it wasn't for my friends and their embracing it, it wouldn't have been as special as it was," he said.
