Two goldfish are to be married at an Easter festival.

This Easter sees a Cider and Chocolate Festival at a pub in Buckland Dinham, Somerset. One of the highlights of the weekend, which kicks off on Saturday April 7, will be the marriage of two goldfish!

Landlord of The Bell Inn, Jeremy Westcott said: "We like to do the weird and wacky and hope to have a goldfish wedding at about 7pm on the day."

The fish, called Susan and Derek, belong to Bella Wooding and Toby Duvalle.

Along with the wedding celebrations, the festival promises a huge selection of ciders, six chocolatiers and a pop-up chocolate garden, along with camping on-site, live music and food.
