Chirnside P2 pupils attended a double wedding at the local parish church when two couples from the class were ‘married’ by the P2 minister Elliot.
The 26 youngsters had been learning about ‘church’ plus the different elements of a wedding - why people get married, what are vows, what is love, what love means to them.
Head teacher Nick Tussler said: “Staff and pupils spoke about the roles in a wedding and pupils had the opportunity to select two choices, surprisingly bride and groom were not as popular as best man and bridesmaid - perhaps due to the kissing part!”
Wedding rehearsals were held, invitations sent out to relatives and on the day ushers showed parents to their seat asking if they were attending for the bride or groom. The brides and grooms shook hands (no kissing!) after the ceremony and were covered in confetti by their classmates as they left the church. At the reception the best man gave a speech and the bridal party cut the cake baked by the school’s catering staff.
The school thanks everyone who made the day possible, particularly the children.
