Today I am practically giddy to share the utterly amazing Wedding of Mr and Mrs Potato Head.
Now this may be a little on the alternative side but even in the world of play, the drama, the excitement, the emotions and the tender moments are as poignant as in real life.
Images from this brilliantly creative shoot were captured by the fabulous Chris Thornton Photography.
Chris Thornton is a photographer based in Castleford near Leeds offering lifestyle portraits, wedding, commercial and portfolio photography.
Chris shares the inspiration behind his epic shoot…
“My son Cole knows I’m a photographer, and that I shoot weddings.”
“He really doesn’t understand this and isn’t the slightest bit interest in the photos I show him. (Would you be aged 3?).”
“So I decided to shoot a wedding just for him.”
“He’s a big fan of everything Toy Story which Mr Potato Head features in, (although I think I left it too long as now it’s all Power Rangers & Ben 10.)”
“But today I am delighted to introduce the awesome Wedding of Mr and Mrs Potato Head…”
“I tried to shoot a number of the “conventional” wedding images, like the shoes, confetti and groups shots.”
“Seeing the camera in the box of accessories also gave me the idea of Uncle Spud getting in the way.”
“The first idea I had was one for the wedding breakfast with Potato being served to the shock of the guests.”
“To be honest my mind was buzzing and I could have gone on for ages shooting images for this, and I might even re-visit it at some point to add some more!”
“The fabulous decorations and Bride and Groom wardrobe were made by my lovely Mum.”
The Wedding Prep…
The Couples shots…
The Uncle Bob, or in this case, the Uncle Spud (you always get one….)
The Reception Details…
It also came as a huge shock when Mr Potato Head found out what was on the menu for the Wedding Breakfast…
Rain on the Wedding Day does nothing to dampen the spirits of the Newlyweds…

Romantic indoor shots to conclude a beautiful day….
Thank you to Leeds Photographer Chris for sharing the outstanding Wedding of Mr and Mrs Potato Head.
So much thought has been put into creating an incredibly realistic portrayal of a Wedding Day, even for little minds to understand.
And what a great thing as a Dad to do to put such momentous effort into a project and pull off something as genius as this.
And if Chris can be this creative with toys just think how fantastic and creative he can be with real life Wedding imagery.
