Children at Hampsthwaite School Nursery have had a wonderful time putting on their own version of the royal wedding.

After creating the artwork, invitations, decorations and flowers for the occasion, the children hosted their own ceremony.

They took on roles as the vicar, flower-bearer, photographer, Queen, congregation and, of course, bride and groom.

Nursery teacher Miss Phillip said: “It all came about after a number of the children had shown interest in the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, so we decided to hold a royal wedding of our own.

“The children helped with ideas for all the preparations, and after the official ceremony in the morning they spent the rest of the day re-enacting the event in-role as part of their independent play.

“The staff work hard to build the curriculum around the interests of the children, and this results in a high level of engagement. The enjoyment of the wedding was evident on the children’s faces.”
