HUNDREDS of wellwishers lined the streets of Towyn last week to glimpse their very own version of a forthcoming fairytale Royal wedding.
Children from Ysgol y Foryd, Towyn, accompanied by a 300-strong congregation gathered at St Mary’s Church, Towyn, for their own take on the Royal Wedding.
All the pupils took part in the wedding ceremony, dressing up as a whole host of famous Royals including best man Prince Harry and The Queen, heads of state from around the world including the King and Queen of Spain and even celebrities such as the Beckhams and Cliff Richard.
The roles of William and Kate were played by Ysgol y Foryd pupils boasting the best attendance record - Lewis Lloyd and Emma Storey, both seven
Bishop Stephen Lowe, retired Bishop of Hulme in Greater Manchester, played the part of the Archbishop of Canterbury and was on hand to guide the youngsters through the service.
The Priest in Charge at St Mary’s in Towyn, who during his career had conducted hundreds of weddings, said: “It was probably the most unusual wedding I have ever conducted.
“The whole thing went very smoothly and I thought they said their vows very carefully and very well.
“I wish some grown ups would have taken their weddings as seriously.”
Mother-of-the-bride, Louise Storey, of Llys Bala, Kinmel Bay, who revealed Emma had taken just under half-an-hour to get ready for her wedding, said: “When she first walked in the church I was in floods of tears."
Lewis’ mum, Leanne Lloyd, of Cedar Avenue, Kinmel Bay, said: “He’s been very calm throughout but he’s quite a confident little boy. I helped him pick his shirt for today from BHS. I’m really proud of himl.”
Stephanie Cartmel, Ysgol y Foryd, added: “It couldn’t have gone any better. It’s been a culmination of lots of hard work over the last few weeks and it’s been educational, inspirational and most importantly it’s been fun."
