Our wedding gift was simple!

WHEN Dan Gillian proposed to girlfriend Nicole, she already knew he had a secret love – meerkats.
So it didn’t take Nicole long to come up with an idea for a great wedding gift surprise for him following their wedding.
She chose a close encounter with his favourite animals at Tropical Wings Zoo, in South Woodham Ferrers.
Staff at the zoo joined in with the spirit by making a vegetable bouquet and buttonhole for the meerkats to enjoy.
Zoo manager John Ray added: “It was unusual to have newlyweds enjoy an experience like this and they really enjoyed it. “So did the meerkats – they certainly munched their way through that bouquet!”
