Damon & Tooty we’re never going to have a wedding with a¬†boring¬†or standard theme. In fact as soon as they found their venue, Spring Grove House at¬†the¬†West Midlands Safari Park,¬†the seed for a¬†safari¬†themed day was planted! “The theme came after viewing the venue”, the bride began. “We saw a few places and found them booooooorrrrringg. We planned to go and see Spring Grove House but really didn’t expect much from it as we had never heard of it. But when we got there we fell in love! They’ve kitted it out all in animal print¬†d√©cor¬†including the carpets, the wallpaper and ornaments. The idea for the theme was obvious to me. I’m always wearing animal print attire and so we decided to¬†insist¬†our guests did the same for the wedding!”

“With the invitations we included a poem inviting everyone to dress up for the day… although the theme wasn’t optional. I’d have kicked butt if anyone hadn’t turned up in animal print! We were so pleased with the effort everyone made. Some people took it to another level including our two gay friend who turned up dressed as big cats – body paint and all!¬†I only spotted them when the ceremony was over and we had turned to face the people when signing the register…my face was a picture and I think I said something along the lines of ‘what the f*** is that!'”
