The church was packed with excited guests while a pupil put the event into focus by becoming photographer for the day.

Pupils acted as a catering team to provide everyone with a mini wedding buffet after the ceremony in an event that was totally organised by students.

West Walton Community Primary school children took part in the mock wedding at the village church overseen by Rev Batcock, who arranged everything to make it as realistic as possible.

Groom Joe Harris and bride Emmie Parker, exchanged rings and made their vows before signing a mock wedding register.

The school said that the event had been arranged to give a real life RE lesson to children to teach them about the promises people make to each other, not just in marriage but also in life.
