Picture gallery: It’s a landau wedding for Great Yarmouth Royals

The Royal Wedding was given a Great Yarmouth touch by Cobholm Primary School with the happy couple being transported in a landau normally reserved for seafront holidaymakers.

The youngest pupils in the Mill Road school, Elle Stiling, of Empress Road, and Michael Todd, of Dolman Close, took the roles of Kate Middleton and Prince William.

The grand entrance of the four-year-olds, accompanied by school head Julie Risby, was watched by the whole school, dressed in their finery and waving union flags.

The landau was driven by Johnny Gray, whose grandchildren Ethan, nine, and Honnie Gray, five, go to the school.

The special day began with a 'wedding' at Cobholm's St Luke's Church and after a wedding breakfast there was dancing, speeches, a toast and cutting of the cakes.

The designs for the wedding cakes, made by South Burlingham cake maker Maria Clouting, had been drawn by pupils Tia Atkin and Chelsea Davies.

Mrs Risby said: 'The day has gone brilliantly. It is something the children will remember for ever. Some have said it has been the best day at school so far.
