School Caretaker Ties the Knot and Invites All 450 Students

 

57-year-old primary school caretaker Cindy Cassin walked down the aisle in front of all the 450 pupils from the Saint Barnabas Church of England Primary School, writes Faima Bakar of the U.K.’s highest-circulating newspaper Metro. Dozens of teaching staff and several parents also attended the wedding. Ray Gaunt, Cindy’s dad, 74, walked her down the aisle and had her reception on the school field. 

Deputy headteacher Jeremy Arnold “floated the idea” of organizing a wedding with the children. As expected was excited to get involved. Tying the knot with her 62-year-old husband Dave was a daunting day for Cindy. She reveals, “I was really nervous about getting married in front of so many people. ‘I don’t like all the attention being on me but it was such a special day for everyone.” According to Cindy, one of the parents baked 450 cupcakes and another made her wedding cake.

“It was lovely to see the children so excited in the run-up to our wedding day. They’d all created little gifts to present to us at the reception as well, it was adorable,” she adds. Dave and Cindy first met in 1979, where they held a celebration abroad in Zante before commemorating it at the primary school. 

Cindy wore the same white dress for her second wedding celebration. She also had her makeup and hair done by a professional. Undoubtedly, the wedding was one of the best days of their lives. Cindy says, “It was such a great day and so special to share it all with the school as they’re like family to me.”

Deputy headteacher Jenny explains that the children were excited to celebrate Cindy’s wedding, thinking it’s important for them to enjoy life experiences as part of the school’s curriculum. The students made good luck favors for the couple prior to the wedding reception. “Cindy is an amazing asset to our school as she always goes above and beyond at any opportunity,” Jenny notes.
