WHEN Brendan Warwick was organising his wedding the only thing he could think about was dinosaurs.
"I knew they were going to make an appearance at the wedding," he said.
"The only question was how."
When he came up with the idea for a photo, he said it took a while to get everyone on board.
"My wife Sam was into it straight away and we planned to do it in the formal photo shoot," he said.
"Geoffrey Sinclair, the photographer, and some of the bridal party didn't get what I wanted straight away."
He said it took a bit of explaining that he wanted to pretend there was a 20 metre T-rex behind them, but in the end everyone had a good giggle and did what they needed to do.
"It was loads of fun," he said.
"When Geoff sent through the photos after our honeymoon in Phuket, I spent a week retouching it and making the T-rex as real as possible."
"Now that it's finished, it's the only photo everyone wants to see!"
The 27-year-old Rio Tinto worker is proud that his childhood obsession made his wedding unforgettable.
"I lived for Jurassic Park and still have all the DVDs," he said.
"When I was six, Arian Richards, the girl from the movie, went on holiday to Heron Island and I waited at the airport for her to arrive."
He asked her what it was like being in the tree with the brachiosaurus walking by, and she never gave it away that the scene was faked.
"I'll never forget that, it was unreal," he said.
"Up there with my wedding day as one of the best yet."
The couple married at the Mercure Resort, Yeppoon, in October.
