A Moray teacher has swapped walking down the aisle for a makeshift celebration with school pupils due to the coronavirus lockdown.
Emma Petrie had been due get married to Scott Andrews today before the couple were forced to cancel the ceremony, reception and honeymoon due to the pandemic.
The 29-year-old is ordinarily a teacher at Greenwards Primary School in Elgin but is using her unexpected free time to volunteer there to provide childcare for the families of key workers.
However, her colleagues and pupils did not want to let her big day go without a bash and threw a special isolation celebration on what should have been her wedding day.
Flowers were brought in for the party with children making a special daisy-chain headband for the teacher.
Miss Petrie said: “Postponing the wedding was a little disappointing but in the grand scheme of what’s going on right now there’s no point dwelling on it.
“It’s completely outwith anyone’s control, but I think we’ll all be ready to party come October.”
Sarah Grant, head teacher at Greenwards, said: “We’re grateful to Emma and all education staff who have given up their holidays and time to assist at the childcare hubs.”
Greenwards is one of eight centres in Moray being used to provide childcare for children of key workers.
