Every now and again a love story comes around that is so overwhelmingly sweet our hearts can barely handle it—so prepare yourself accordingly. The love story and wedding of Ferrari and Pringle, two same sex penguins, was recently documented in a short video for the entire world to swoon over.
Ferrari and Pringle are two showbiz humboldt penguins from the UK who have worked together for years but have now made things official with some lavish nuptials. In the video, shot by The Wedding Video Company, Pringle, 6, can bee seen getting ready to walk down the aisle at Merriscourt, an enchanting barn wedding venue in the Cotswolds.
Both grooms had the help of a makeup artist before making their way down the aisle. Pringle, 21, wore a black bow-tie for the occasion while Ferrari opted for a chic, patterned blue and white one.
And since no expense was spared for these lovebirds, Ferrari arrived to the ceremony in a red-leather interior Bentley where he met Pringle at the altar.
“We know in our hearts that these two are perfect for each other,” their officiant, Andrew Roughan, says in the clip. “You may now kiss the groom.”
The newlyweds quickly touched beaks after being pronounced penguin and penguin, before continuing with the rest of their celebration. Their guests showered them with confetti during their ceremony exit, and they were whisked away to the reception where they enjoyed a breakfast of sprats (small fish) and danced under party lights.
The lucky couple was surrounded by those closest to them on their big day. "These two penguins have worked together for years now and it became apparent from the beginning that they could not spend a day without each other, they were so in love,” Jenny Pullen, animal trainer at Heythrop Zoological Gardens in Oxfordshire, where they reside, said.
Pullen continued, "I am overwhelmed they are able to tie the knot and I am sure they are looking forward to a happy married life together."
Unfortunately, Ferrari and Pringle cannot reproduce, which is apparently all they want to do. According to ChronicleLive, their handlers say they sit on a rock each year trying to incubate their 'egg.'
