Renowned newt lover Ken Livingstone married his long-term love Emma Beal near the Reptile House in London Zoo this weekend.
Clearly keen to make it a day to remember for all his guests, Ken chose the venue to stop the children at the ceremony from getting bored.
Emma - the mother of two of Mr Livingstone's five children - wore a scarlet red prom-style dress for the special day.
Her groom didn't appear to be suffering from the usual pre-wedding nerves beforehand.
The 64-year-old went ahead and presented his usual morning radio show just hours before the nuptials.
"If I'd stayed at home, I'd be offering unhelpful advice about the better way of doing something and winding everybody up, so I just thought I'd come into work," he explained.
