Bridal party with a Minion

A couple from Cumbria are celebrating their wedding, which was entirely devoted to Minions.

Sam Finan and Bob Thomas, both from Barrow-in-Furness, had a Minions cake, put their bridesmaids in yellow dresses and gave their groomsmen yellow ties.

Tables, confetti and placeholders also featured the animated characters, while balloons and decorations at the reception were white, yellow and blue.

Bridesmaid Amy Thomas said the day was "amazing".

The Minions themselves also made an appearance at the event, which took place at Cheques Hotel in Dalton-in-Furness.

"All the guests think we are bonkers but it's our sense of humour," said Ms Finan, 44.

Bride and groom signing the register

She and Mr Thomas, 52, have both been married before and said they came up with the idea on a night out.

"We were sat out the back, talking about themes and it just came up in conversation. We had a laugh about it," she told the North-West Evening Mail in an interview before the wedding.

"At first it was just going to be the cake. Then it was cuff links. Then the place cards. It has got a little out of hand."

Before the wedding, Mr Thomas got a tattoo of two Minions dressed as a bride and groom.

"I've got to go through with it now after getting this tattoo," he said.
