Simon and Dawn Mannali, both employees of London Zoo, recreate their wedding day with an elephant called Dilberta on the day that London Zoo received its full licence for wedding ceremonies to take place on various locations throughout the site. * Always a place for receptions, the Zoo now can accommodate 200 guests for weddings of a distinctly animalistic nature. 31/10/01 London Zoo said it is to end a 170-year tradition and move its elephants out of the capital. The announcement comes after an elephant at the zoo crushed a worker to death. The animal, and the zoo's two other female Asian elephants, will be moved to London Zoo's sister enclosure, Whipsnade Wild Animal Park in Bedfordshire, when facilities have been prepared for them.
