Move Over Grace Kelly

If you thought the wedding of the year was going to be Prince William and Kate Middleton's, you obviously haven't been watching Big Fat Gypsy Weddings on Channel 4 in the UK. This amazing show will document Irish Traveller weddings, Holy Communions, and the like and I am about to buy a ticket across the pond just so I can catch a glimpse of this soon to be treasured cinematic masterpiece.

Considered a dress rehearsal for her wedding day, a gypsy girl's First Holy Communion isn't far off from her nuptials as most Travellers are married between 14 and 16 years of age.

Tiara's are not just for Toddler's in the UK.

Bride Sam and her Groom Patrick Lee pose in front of their magic carriage.

Nothing says delicate like black and pink corsets.

Not to be outdone, bride Sam Norton demonstrates that the bigger the dress the better the wedding.

Special thanks to KT and Meg at Pigtown for the head's up.

Such beauty and elegance of Bride Bridget and her court of maids.
