A primary school in Worcester staged a fake wedding, which included a hen and stag night with the idea that it would encourage their creative writing skills.
The pupils went bowling on their mock hen and stag party night, the bride got in to the spirit by wearing typical hen party apparel – L-plates!
The up and coming royal wedding apparently didn’t inspired this quirky wedding, the pupils voted for Callie age 5 to be the bride and Gethyn age 6 to play groom, the couple married in a moving ceremony at their church with a vicar, registrar and their parents watching as they pretended to tie the knot.
A Mercedes car was donated to take the bride and her father to church, the food and wedding cake for the reception were made for free by the parents and children
The children have been learning about everything from invitations to how to book a honeymoon.
They were given tasks from designing table decorations and the wedding dress to organising the stag and hen party to a wedding breakfast and reception. The wedding cake was lovely and the speeches went down a treat
They voted on what kind of honeymoon they would like a beach resort won because it was hot and to travel to church by car, as it was quick.
The school defended its choice to stage this mock wedding amongst a barrage of fury from Christian and education campaigners, advising that the pupil’s experiences were educational and would help them with their writing skills.
