Couple Has 'Minions'-Themed Wedding

One couple took their "Minions" love to a whole new level when they celebrated their wedding this past weekend.

"Despicable Me" fans Samantha Finan and Robert Thomas of Cumbria, England, not only had their bridesmaids dress in yellow, with the bridegroom and groomsmen sporting yellow ties, but the couple also included the pill-shaped, goggle-wearing yellow guys on all sorts of wedding gear. Minion cake topper? Check. Minion cufflinks? Check. Minion tattoo? Check.

There were even costumed minions on hand at the celebration, which had its own hashtag: #OneInAMinion.

"It just spiraled out of control," Finan, the bride, told the North West Evening Mail. "We were ... talking about themes and it just came up in conversation. We had a laugh about it."

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

This is the second marriage for both Finan and Thomas, who is a father of six, and the couple said they wanted to have fun with that.

"We have both been married before, and we thought let's add a bit of humor to it," Finan said.

It's only a coincidence, though, that the "Minions" film arrives in theaters on July 10.

However, the bride took that to be a sign.

"It's meant to be!" she said.
