UNION Jacks and bunting offered a splash of colour as youngsters in Hucknall walked up the aisle to stage their own version of the upcoming royal wedding.
Children at the Leen Mills Pre-School Playgroup took part in the ceremony at its base on Carlingford Road.
But instead of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Charlie Parish (three) and Ella Dabell (four) ‘tied the knot’.
Little Ella wore a veil and tiara and even got a kiss (on the cheek) from Charlie as they were pronounced ‘husband and wife’.
More than 40 children took part in the event with all the ‘guests’ and staff wearing red, white and blue.
There was also a wedding reception in the form of a ‘street party’ where youngsters enjoyed a buffet and took part in traditional party games, such as musical chairs.
The innovative idea was all part of a day of activities revolving around weddings.
Staff explained about the royal wedding at Westminster Abbey.
They went on to talk children through the different types of weddings.
There was also a visit by an Indian couple who talked about their traditional ceremony.
Suzanne Priestley, a room leader at Leen Mills, said: “There is a real feelgood factor about the royal wedding and it was great to do something with that theme.
“It was a really good day and the children enjoyed themselves. It was a nice way to break up for the Easter holidays.”
