Adorable moment trusty dog brings rings to alter during wedding ceremony
These wonderful pictures show how a couple wanted to make their faithful pooch part of their special day.
Zac Stout, 25, tied the knot with bride Lily, 24, but the couple couldn’t do it without including their beloved labrador, Duke.
The nine-year-old lab is described by the couple as ‘the most loveable and happy soul you could ever meet’.
So when the couple decided they would be getting married, it just seemed natural to have him be at the wedding.
Lily said that Duke has always been a big part of her and Zac’s relationship – and decided no one else should have the task of bringing them their rings to the alter.
She said: “One of the first times I met Zac we walked Duke on the beach together and when we got back from the walk I sat in Duke’s dog bed with him having a cuddle.
“Zac said I got the Duke seal of approval, and he asked me to be his girlfriend.
“We took Duke down to the church we were getting married in before the day and rehearsed him coming down the aisle.
“He was such a good boy, we knew he would be perfect for the job.
“Everyone was so excited to see him on the day.
“His tail wagged for the entire ceremony, one of the groomsmen had to put his tail in between his feet as it was making such a noise hitting the pews!
“Everyone cheered him on as he came down the aisle with big smiles on their faces.
“He said hello to a couple of people on his way up the aisle as he recognised people but all in all he was so good.”
