Here are a number of photos taken of the excited youngsters arriving for the event.
Some of the couples sauntered casually along the red carpet on the raised dais, pausing to receive the cheers and applause of their friends and family, watching. Others crossed at a slow trot, one or two at a canter, and one couple were so keen to join their friends on the far side, they positively galloped across so fast, I didn’t get a chance to drop the shutter. Sorry.
