Amazing Photos from Truly Unique Wedding Themes

Every bride wants to look like a princess on her special day – well almost every bride. Forget the generic fluffy white gowns you usually see in wedding photo shoots, these happy couples would rather channel their inner child on their special day and lucky for us, they've got the photos to prove it.

While weddings are usually seen as one big party, we love the idea of celebrating in a way that is truly special to the happy couple. It’s clear from these photos that love has no boundaries and can be enjoyed by everyone – whether you’re an ogre or a member of the walking undead.


  • If there’s anything Shrek has taught us, it’s that even Ogres can find love! And while we doubt this couple lives on a swamp and has a donkey as a pet, their love seems to be just as magical as Shrek and Fiona’s.

  • We bet this zombie-fied couple enjoyed a bite or two of our brain dip before walking down the aisle. Photographer Adolfo Lopez sure brought this zombie couple's dream wedding to life with the series of hilarious yet beautiful wedding photos.

  • Calvin and Hobbes may take you back to your golden years when your biggest worry was having the coolest lunch box in the class, but this happy couple wasn’t ready to give up their childhood favorites just yet. Their love for this classic cartoon made it’s way into the engagement photos and even to the wedding décor itself!

  • Would you believe it if we told you these newlyweds aren’t even huge fans of Star Wars?! Shocking as it may seem, this couple chose to have a Wedding that would ensure the force was with them at all times. We hope Chewbacca paid a visit to the groomers before attending this elegant soiree!

  • You may not realize it, but chances are you’ve learned a lot about being a good spouse from The Flintstones. Although with today’s technology we can imagine Fred being a teensy bit lazier and even more high maintenance, the fact is they loved each other through thick and thin. This couple took a cue from this stylish caveman family and celebrated in true Bedrock style.

  • It’s about time Alice and The Mad Hatter took things to the next level! This beautiful couple created their own fairy tale wedding with a little help from Lewis Carroll. Even the Cheshire Cat was in attendance – opting for a more traditional gray coat instead of his usual purple.

  • This staged shoot from Green Wedding Shoes was just SO adorable, we had to share it even though it's technically not from a real wedding. Bowser might always be stealing Peach away from Mario, but it’s clear who her prince really is.
