Two schoolchildren from Herons’ Moor Academy tied the knot at a pretend wedding ceremony in Weston-super-Mare as part of their religious education work on family milestones.
Two of the academy’s Year One classes dressed up in their best suits and smartest party dresses to celebrate the wedding of pupils Alia-May and Daniel on Wednesday 16th March.
The wedding took place at Locking Castle Church and the happy couple were joined by bridesmaids Amelia, Isabelle and Lydia, best man Freddie. Students Ola and Tyler played the role of mother and father of the groom and Aimee and Alfie played mother and father of the bride.
The church’s vicar Tom Yacomeni performed the ceremony before a wedding reception was held back at the school, with confetti-throwing, cake-cutting and bouquet-throwing all taking place.
Year One teacher Cathy Hall said: “We have been learning about milestone moments in family life. We have learnt about christenings, weddings, Jewish weddings and just thinking about some of the key moments in our lives.
“The service was brilliant. We had ushers who handed out the order of service sheets and we had four children doing readings. Two children were witnesses and signed the marriage certificate.”
