Inseparable Love-Dogs Tie The Knot In Extra AF Canine Wedding Ceremony

Inseparable Love-Dogs Tie The Knot In Extra AF Canine Wedding Ceremony

Dogs have long been included in weddings as part of the bridal party or simply a guest - but one couple of pooches had a very special walk down the aisle for their very own ceremony.

Black retriever Fiji and golden retriever Dotty tied the knot in front of 50 guests at the Prince of Wales pub, Stoke-sub-Hamdon, Somerset, which had all the trappings of a human wedding.

The big day for the dogs included a specially-made dog-friendly cake, a doggy dress and a guitarist to play the canine couple in. The pooches walked down the aisle to The Beatles All You Need is Love and left to It Must Be Love by Madness.

Pippa Hamilton, 60, who officiated the ceremony, said the doggy duo were, "slightly all over the place".

She said: "My job is a celebrant and this idea of a dog wedding came up. I was hesitant to start with - in no way did I want to want to devalue what I do for couples.

"It was an unusual thing. I had never done anything like it before! But it highlights the need for love in everybody's lives. When you have love in your life your tail wags!

"The dogs were slightly all over the place, but the bride looked lovely. It was a wonderful thing to do. Apparently, they are inseparable."

Pippa often officiates 'handfasting' ceremonies, a rural custom where you bind the newlywed's hands together with a ribbon to show unity, however was unable to so instead came up with a nifty idea.

She added: "I couldn't do that with the dogs yesterday, so I tied their leads together."

The event was organised by Amanda Reed, from Saville Row Hounds, a bespoke dog clothing shop. The 59-year-old explained that the pooches had won a competition to facilitate a doggy wedding in the marquee outside a pub.

Amanda shared: "They retrievers won a competition. We chose them because they were so beautiful. The dogs have been friends for a long time and the owners thought it was ideal.

"I made a wedding coat for the female with flowers around her neck. The groom had a bow tie on. It was all done in a beautiful gazebo with chairs [for the guests] - someone played the guitar too."
