Themed Weddings : Shrek & Fiona

…because true love means never having to say you’re sorry, or you know, justifying your weird obsession with the childrens movie “Shrek”. Jersey (as in the beautiful Isle of Jersey, not the state/shore in the USA/on MTV) couple Paul and Heidi Bellas got married as Shrek and Fiona from “Shrek”.

Shrek and Fiona

The pair got the idea – and presumably the buckets of green finger paint from their son Leo.

“The essence that is 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.” said Paul.

The couple had to get special permission to get wedded in face paint. Jersey law requires couples getting married need to be identified.

I am truly happy for these two. Clearly, you have met your soulmate if you can somehow find the only other person in the world that wants to get married as “Shrek”. Just in case you were worried that these two would be ridiculed by their family and friends during the ceremony, the rest of the wedding party was dutifully dressed as fairytale characters too.

“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 Flinstone with big feet.”

Amazingly (sadly), this isn’t the first couple to get married as “Shrek”. In 2009, Christine and Keith England also said their wedding vows as Fiona and Shrek.

Let’s hope they live happily ever after.

Walking through the stores lately and seeing something as simple as coloured jeans, how bright and amazing the world seems to be simply because of coloured jeans, it’s amazing!

Being a girl whose never been to adventurous with clothing (especially colour), I have fallen in love with coloured skinnies.

I have seen so many girls ROCKING this colourful look, whether with a flirty pair of pumps or sultry heels, they can be dressed up or down. Another amazing fashion idea!

A Must See: The Phantom of The Opera

Why hello there Poutlings!

Happy Monday… Did you all have a good weekend?

My mum and I had such a lovely Sunday yesterday, we went to watch

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

at the

MONTE CASINO TEATRO

I just love watching live theatre perfomances and unfortunately, I do not get to go as often as I wish I could… for various reasons however with my mums birthday coming up this week, we decided that we were going to watch the show. We watched Phantom about 8 years ago at the state theatre in Pretoria, which was amazing, but there was something even more special about this performance, which I can’t exactly put my finger on at the moment.

If you do not know the story of this musical, then please come out from your rock and read on to get a small grasp of what all the fuss is about. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is a story of a disfigured musical genius known only as “The Phantom” who haunts the darkness of the Paris Opera House.

Amazed by the beauty and talent of a young dancer he captures her and trains her to be the best opera singer, unaware of her love for another man.

Obsession, jealously, madness and passion collide creating one real story of love.

Along with some of the most heart touching romantic music sung by the cast.

This story has been performed to over 100 million people in 149 countries worldwide.

Everything from the sound, lighting, acting, costumes, music, the cast and the set seemed absolutely perfect.

Pieter Toerien has done amazing work in presenting this full scale production in South Africa, which highly lives up to international standards.

The quick set changes had me sitting there in awe wondering WHERE they store all the stuff and HOW they can change so quickly.

If are put off by the price of the tickets, DON’T BE – you will not be disappointed – I promise you!
