Year One pupils from Stukeley Meadows Primary School donned their best clothes last Tuesday to learn about wedding ceremonies and marriage.

For the last decade, the school has organised a mock wedding for students as part of their religious education studies.

Sarah Holloway, teaching assistant at the school, said: “The children always enjoy the wedding, its one of the most memorable days. The children actually remember that they were part of it for years and the parents have always loved it.”

Along with the wedding, the youngsters also organised hen and stag dos, wrote vows and sent invitations to understand how a wedding is organised.
