STAFF faced a tall order this week when Walsall newlyweds, Anna and Phil Wood, called in at Dudley Zoo to feed the giraffes straight from church!
Twenty-five-year-old residential social worker, Anna, and Phil, 26, who works as an operator and setter at a Black Country engineering company, headed for the giraffe paddock directly after tying the knot at All Saints' Church, in Bloxwich.
The zoo holds special memories for the Woods – they met on site when Anna was part of the zoo's Outreach team and Phil worked in the Queen Mary Restaurant.
Anna, who remains part of the zoo's team of seasonal staff, said she couldn't wait for the giraffe feed.
She said: "I was so excited about the whole day, but the giraffe feed made our wedding mega perfect.
"I love giraffes and was over the moon when DZG said they would put on a special feed just for us."
Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: "We've given them a special giraffe adoption as a wedding gift from staff at DZG."
