Barking! Pet dogs Luna and Paco 'tie the knot' in lavish 5,000 wedding complete with a DJ, diamante collars and a two-tiered cake made from CORNED BEEF

Aah, don t they make a yappy couple?

Meet Luna and Paco dogs who have just tied the knot in Britain s most expensive canine wedding.

With food, entertainment and outfits, their owners splashed out 5,000 to make sure the big day for the four-legged pals was, well… pawfect.

No expense was spared as the pair exchanged diamante collars rather than rings and tucked into a two-tiered cake of corned beef and mashed potato, decorated with bone-shaped dog biscuits.

Luna, a three-year-old puggle a pug and beagle cross is utterly inseparable from shih tzu Paco who at 23 months old is quite the toyboy.

So their owners thought they would seal their love at a special garden ceremony. Twenty guests witnessed the nuptials at the home of Paco s owner Meg Jay, 39, in Ipswich. Looking resplendent in a bespoke silk gown, Luna walked down the aisle to the strains of Wagner s Bridal Chorus.

Mrs Jay s husband Danny acted as vicar after taking an online course in how to conduct a ceremony, and asked the groom: Do you Paco take Luna to be your woof in sickness and in health? Luna barked her acquiescence.

After the register was signed with paw prints and guests enjoyed a buffet, a DJ played hits including Donny Osmond s Puppy Love and Hound Dog by Elvis, and the two pooches supped from bowls of Pawsecco an infusion of elderflower water, carrot and ginseng.

Yesterday Luna s owner Hayley Windsor sister of Strictly Come Dancing professional Robin Windsor said: Paco and Luna are just wildly in love, and utterly inseparable.

When they go walking together, Paco starts barking and going mental if Luna so much as sniffs at another dog. We just felt a wedding is what they both would have wanted.

The mutts nuptials marks an ongoing trend in pet weddings, which has been in fashion in the US for at least five years.
