#AtoZChallenge – Getting Married at the Zoo

We have reached the end. It is the last day of April, and the last day of the #AtoZChallenge 2014. Phew! Today, as promised, I present something that is a little bit fun and frivolous, and something very close to my heart. I allocate the letter Z to zoo. More specifically, I will refer to Chester Zoo, my favourite local tourist attraction in the North West of England.

I always enjoy a visit to the zoo. In the past they have been scrutinised for the way they treat their animals, but looking at the positives, they go a long way towards long-term conservation and protection of endangered species. I love seeing the unusual and beautiful animals at Chester Zoo, and I admire the well-kept gardens and open spaces as well. It is a treat to spend the day there, and my husband likes Chester Zoo for its recycling ethic when it comes to the cafes and restaurants on-site.

I got married at the zoo. How cool is that? Yes, when my husband and I decided to set a date, I decided I wanted to get married in an unusual venue. He wasn’t keen on doing a pagan hand fasting ceremony, and to be honest it might have been difficult explaining to my family, so I looked around for some other options. And I found a gorgeous venue at Chester Zoo.

We had a wonderful wedding day at the zoo. In fact, we even became one of the exhibits as we walked around having photographs taken. It was a bizarre and hilarious experience walking around the zoo wearing a big, fancy wedding gown. The other visitors walked past staring at us, smiling and pointing, and we now have a wedding album that includes exotic animals and plants. Fantastic! I look forward to our special anniversary visit in June, and this time we will have our second daughter in tow so it will be an extra special day.
