Key Stage 2 children from Tydd St Mary Church of England Primary School took part in a wedding ceremony as part of their studies.

Students Harry Walsh and Tilly Ransome were “married” in a ceremony conducted by Rev David Oxtoby at the church in the village.

Teacher Lucie Burton, who organised the wedding, said: “The children have been learning about Christianity and worship in their RE lessons this term, so we decided to give them an experience of worship in a realistic wedding ceremony with a few changed words.

“The children also learnt some historical facts about weddings.”

A Porche was used as transport for the bride and groom and there were bridesmaids and a best man at the ceremony, who went on to enjoy the wedding breakfast back at the school.

The best man gave a speech, the bouquet was thrown and a two tiered wedding cake was enjoyed.

Lucie said: “There were 62 children involved, so we filled the church.

“Everyone had a fantastic time!”
