Year One Wedding Celebrations

Year One have been learning about Christian and Jewish celebrations, and to help secure their understanding, they held a pretend Jewish wedding! They designed the cake, made invitations and learned lots about how a Jewish wedding differs from a Christian celebration.

In 1D, Seth and Megan were married by Alfie, the rabbi. Seth was accompanied by his best man, Travis, and groomsmen Max, Archie and Harper, whilst Megan had her maid of honour, Isabella, and bridesmaids Felicity, Daisy-Mai, Ellie and Elana. Jacoby-George had the important job of looking after the rings, while Hettie and Ava witnessed the signing of the Ketubah, or marriage document. The grandparents of the bride and groom formed part of the processional, along with the bride’s parents: Leo, Renie-Leigh, Bailey-Mai, Rupert, and Ryka. The ushers – Jesse, Cory, Jack and Fletcher, seated the guests – Connor, Effie, Tilia and Njay. Tristen was “chief photographer,” and took some of the photos shown below.

A huge thank you to all parents and carers for helping with the costumes, and to Harper’s mum, who made the cake which Ava designed, Alfie’s mum who provided a bridal bouquet, and Daisy-Mai’s mum who made bouquets for the bridesmaids. A great time was had by all – as you can see from Tristen’s wonderful photos!


In 1M, Harry and Hollie were married by our brilliant rabbi Mitchell. Harry and Hollie were accompanied by Riley the best man and Mickayla the maid of honour and the rest of the bridesmaids Paige, Willow, Chelsea and Tilly and the groomsmen Alfie, Shea and Joshua. Jacob had the important job of looking after the rings, while Lily witnessed the signing of the Ketubah, or marriage document. The grandparents of the bride and groom formed part of the procession, along with the bride’s parents: Amelia, Theo M, Hermione, Theo H, Isabel, Kayden, Alexis and Charlie W. The ushers – Tyler and Kyran seated the guests – Weylin, Ruby, Tadgh, Charlie H. and Charlie A. Freya took some amazing photos and documented the entire wedding celebration. We cannot forget about our remarkable pianist Emma who accompanied the wedding ceremony with her beautiful playing.

A huge thank you to all parents and carers for helping with the costumes and for donating some party food for our wedding lunch. Many thanks to Mrs Knight for making our wonderful, yummy wedding cake and to Mrs Cooper for making everyone wedding favours and lending us some wedding decorations.

Thanks also to our well behaved children; it was an incredible day!
