See Royal Wedding at Westminster Abbey in Legos

Think your family has gone crazy about the Royals?

To celebrate the British Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, four British adults have built a giant scale replica model of a wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey, featuring a whopping 180,000 bricks and a congregation of nearly 400 LEGO minifigures.

The impressive 1 x 2.5-meter model took the four builders, all members of the Brickish Assocation, eight weeks to construct.

Weighing in at over 60kg (that's more than 132 lbs), it features 200 different LEGO elements, including nearly 1,000 arches. All of the windows are built from transparent bricks, representing the spectacular stained glass at the Abbey.

Don't rush out to the store just yet -- the special bride and groom minifigures were created from exclusive prototype elements at LEGO Headquarters in Billund, Denmark.

It's hard to beleive, but just look at the photos:

The bride and groom will enter Westminster Abbey here.

400 spectators will be able to watch this wedding  at Westminster Abbey.

The Brickish Association members and family worked for 8 weeks.

Great way to measure the kids' growing patterns!

We hope this is preserved in one of the Legolands for future inspection!

    How did you replicate the interface between the Henry V Shrine Reredos and the outer wall of the ambulatory facing toward Henry VII's chapel? Can I see it? Is there open space above the connecting loggia?
