A couple made sure their wedding day had the Roar Factor – by getting married at award winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
Computer programmer Abbie Bowler, 25, and electrician David Merrett, 30, are the first to wed at the park after the walk through attraction was granted a licence.
The couple, who have been together 7 years, tied the knot and then enjoyed a VIP tour of YWP, including feeding the giraffes and the lions.
Abbie, who lives in Tuxford, got engaged last Christmas and chose her wedding day to coincide with her Grandma and Granddad’s own 57th anniversary,. She explained why they decided to marry at YWP.
She said:’We are not religious and wanted somewhere different We have been to YWP a few times and hold yearly passes so I called up, not knowing the marriage licence was just about to be granted.
‘It was the best day ever – apart from getting married, his close encounter with the lions was the best moment and for me it was feeding the Giraffes.
‘Our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, In the evening with the view of the Wetlands it was a really exotic setting. It could have been anywhere in the world.
‘We couldn’t recommend it enough as a wedding venue. It is truly magical.’
As well as a unique setting, the park gives couples the chance of completing a stunning wedding album with its collection of some of the most rare and beautiful animals on the planet in their photographs.
‘We are delighted to get the licence and know it will provide a memorable venue,’ said YWP Director Cheryl Williams. ‘The wedding ceremony can be held at our brand new Outlook conference centre and the animals make a fantastic backdrop to a special day.
‘I’m sure the lions and tigers will have something to say at the weddings and give the newly-weds a roar of approval.’
