There may have been no famous footballers, actors or talk show hosts in attendance but that didn’t stop Finchingfield Primary School holding their very own ‘royal wedding’ on May 18.

A day before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot, pupils staged their own pretend wedding at St John the Baptist church, with parents and governors on the very exclusive guest list.

Bride and groom Toby Tredinnick and Alicia Ford were joined by best man Beau Hartman and bridesmaids Freya Tubby and Ariana Lopez, with the Reverend Colin Wilson officiating.

Head teacher Lisa Feldman said: “It was the perfect opportunity for pupils to watch a wedding ceremony first hand. The bride was on time and no rings were lost. Toby was not keen on kissing his bride, so hugged her instead. The ceremony was followed by a royal picnic in the school playground. A fantastic time was had by all.”
