VIDEO AND PICTURES: Belford pupils create their own wedding magic

Inspired by the royal wedding at the weekend, children from Belford First School attended their own wedding ceremony to learn what marriage means.

In a ceremony at St Mary's Church, the Rev Denise Hiscox guided the youngsters through the service, explaining what happened during a real wedding and then invited the children to ask questions about marriage.
