“I Yabba Dabba Do at Flinstone’s Wedding”
It started with a tipsy joke, but ended with a full-blown Bedrock wedding as the perfect way to lay the foundations of a new life together.
For their special day, two Norfolk couples decided to turn to the Stone Age for inspiration and recreated the children’s cartoon show The Flintstones by dressing up its main characters.
Andrea and Simon Bean, aka Fred and Wilma Flinstone, and Richard and Jill Noble, aka Barney and Betty Rubble, celebrated their double wedding at Weston Park Golf Club on Saturday by taking a quick trip to the next door dinosaur park for some spectacular wedding photographs sure to raise eyebrows on any mantelpiece.
With 165 guests dressed as cavemen and women, two best men dressed as dinosaurs, and a spectacular tiered wedding rock cake, both Wilma and Betty entered the ceremony to the traditional organ sound of Wagner’s Bridal March.
However, this was quickly replaced by an organ version of The Flintstones theme tune.
Mrs Bean, nee Thurston, who lives in Grange Close, Hoveton, said: “It was a fantastic day and all the guests made such an effort.
“We had so much fun and the registrars were absolutely brilliant.
“We’ve all been married before so we didn’t want the traditional white wedding.”
The couples are close, as the new Mrs Noble, of Starston in South Norfolk, is Mr Bean’s sister, and the idea was borne out of a fun stay at Alton Towers theme park, when they joked about Mr Noble laughing like Barney Rubble and ended up calling each other by the names of the four main characters.
Mrs Bean, 36, said: “We have been criticised by some people as not taking the wedding seriously, but we did take our vows very seriously.
“Some people out there don’t agree with it, but a lot of people enjoyed it and agreed with what we decided we wanted to do.”
The couple’s outfits were made by Future Couture and the ladies’ hair done by Chinelo’s Hair Studio, both in Magdalen Street.
Instead of wedding presents, the couples asked guests to donate money to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation and raised more than £1,200 on the day.
The charity is close to Mrs Bean’s heart as her son Sam, now 15, had a liver transplant when he was just eight months old and she has since raised about £27,000 for the cause.
Mrs Bean, who works for her new husband’s stainless steel products company Greasebusters, said: “My son wouldn’t be here today if somebody hadn’t donated their liver to him, so I’m always urging people to sign up for organ donation too

Before she was on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I found out Dina Manzo was on VH1′s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding (via I’m Not Obsessed)
Expenses included $500,000 in flowers flown in from around the world, $10,000 for a Badgley Mischka couture gown, over $70,000 in entertainment, thousand dollar bottles of wine, 7-foot cake , bars carved out of ice, and even $50,000 for hand-blown glass butterflies. The wedding was almost $1.2 million dollars.
There are rumors that Dina and her husband have split up, and it would not surprise me considering he acts like a jerk the entire segment ( i.e. he laughs about cheating on her twice).
What did YOU think of the wedding?
Red Velvet cake…. gruesome yet yummy!
Don’t get any cake on that Miller Lite hat…
Richard Branson! Behave yourself!
I came across these photoshopped wedding invites quite by accident, but I’m glad I did. All done by the groom’s sister. They are really silly, and I think its a fun idea. ”Young love” is my personal favorite.
“So, sometime in December my brother Daniel is getting married. Congratulations Daniel! – To help celebrate the occasion, and because they didn’t ask me to help, I am going to make a new wedding invitation for them every week until they get married One can see right away that these wedding invitations are not going to be good in any way. In fact, they are going to be as terrible as I can make them. So stay tuned. (So, I’m not really that bitter or anything, I just want to make silly wedding invitations as an attempt to haze my brother a bit) “
This website, Viva Las Vegas Weddings, has a treasure trove of horrible themed weddings you can choose for your big day. This is video of one such wedding.
Many thanks to for Katie for submitting this video link. (Note you have to have Real Player installed to view it) I thought her write up was really funny so I’m posting it too!
” HOLY CRAP! I knew this sort of stuff went on in Las Vegas, I just had NO IDEA. This place, Viva Las Vegas Weddings does regular weddings but most importantly, they do themed weddings. They also do a video of the wedding and archive the weddings on their website. While clicking through hoping to find a funny one, I stumbled upon the R. Strayer Wedding. Holy sh*t. The saddest Ozzy Osbourne impersonator marrying what might be the most awkward couple ever. Also note the woman’s lack of enthusiasm – I can already see the resentment in her eyes for making her participate in such a wedding.
Also note – at the end of the ceremony, “Ozzy” is supposed to sing a song to them but their CD player keeps skipping. MAGIC.”
Here’s my own little play by play of the wedding if you are unable to view the video:
Ceremony starts at around :50, and the “Ozzy” appears at 1:32 and procedes to sing the ENTIRE song while the fog machine gets going. About 3:22 Ozzy begins his speech in his HORRIBLE English accent… they confirm their vows with a “hell yah” instead of I do…
5:30 begins ANOTHER song with them just standing hugging while the impersonator shuffles his feet and sips his water in front of them. 7:30 Ozzy bumbles even more vows before the ring exchange. 9:00 begins my favorite quote of the ceremony : “Do you promise to love each other with in true rock-n-roll, pour some sugar from time to time and always ride the crazy train of love and never treat each other like a couple of war-pigs, right. Ny the powers vested in me, by all of rock-n-roll, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Congratulations, we got a new married couple in Las Vegas!”
Start NEW awkward singalong song. Ceremony pauses at around 12:20 for them to sign their marriage license, then at 14:25 they come back in and awkwardly stand around, then they have to come stand at the stage while they try to put a song on, then they give up and pose for pictures. Wow.
