A kiss for the bride - from a Go! Rhino in Southampton
THE GROOM may not be happy about his bride kissing someone else on their wedding day, but this rhino definitely isn’t complaining.
Newlywed Sherrie Mico stepped out of Southampton’s register office after marrying husband Nick to hunt down Reggie on the Go! Rhinos trail for a special wedding photograph to remember.
The mum-of-four from Thornhill shared the special moment with the Wild In Artsponsored sculpture outside the Wool House before she was joined by her husband and other family members for a group shot.
She had planned to visit Rosie the rhino in St Michael’s Square but her Judo instructor Alison Thomas, who captured the moment on camera, persuaded her to go to Reggie instead as they all preferred his yacht design.
Alison said: “The rhinos are fantastic and as they are only there for a short amount of time, there won’t be many brides who can have their photograph taken with a rhino. This memory will last a lifetime.”
Alison’s photograph is the latest entry into the Daily Echo’s Go! Rhinos photo competition, looking for the most imaginative ways to have your picture taken with one of the rhinos, without touching it.
The winning photo will win a Junior Experience worth £150, which gives one lucky youngster an unforgettable opportunity to be a zookeeper for the day.
The best of the rest will appear in a special souvenir supplement of photographs at the end of the trail.
Just email your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, address, contact telephone number and the names and ages of those in the picture, plus where they are from.
