An under-the-sea themed ceremony has seen Ariel, Disney's famous mermaid princess take on a new role as The Little Mer-wife.

Every little girl dreams of meeting her Prince Charming and having the perfect fairy tale wedding, and one woman has helped to make this a reality when she transformed a ceremony into an under-water fantasy.

Traci Hines, from Los Angeles, took on the role of the red-headed sea-maid and even bagged herself her very own Prince Eric in order to perfect the magical day.

The wedding was complete with seaside appetisers, a three-tier mermaid tail cake and a stunning beach backdrop and even bridesmaids shell printed t-shirts.

The unique ceremony is sure to make any Ariel enthusiast swoon as not a single detail has been missed,from the diamond encrusted anchor ring that adorns her finger to the golden shell around her neck, Traci is the spitting image of the Disney heroine.

Even Leo, looks the part, dressed relatively casually in a crisp white shirt and navy chinos - ensuring that all attention is on the mermaid bride.

Traci's dress has no doubt taken inspiration from Ariel's fish tail as the hem is dip-dyed with a gradient of different blues.

Traci is furthermore convincing as she is pictured combing her red hair with a golden fork, mirroring the famous scene in the 1989 film.

To follow the ceremony which, naturally took place on the shore of the beach, guests could enjoy a selection of ocean themed macaroons and cupcakes.

To ensure that the guests' napkins don't blow away before they can tuck into their crustacean-themed snacks, they are held in place with golden starfish.
