“You know what rabbits are like – as soon as they met they started being a bit naughty!
“There was an instant spark between them.
“Darius is always licking Honey’s face, like he’s kissing her, and she’ll nuzzle herself into him.
“They loved the wedding, because they love being together.
“They’ll spend their honeymoon hopping around together, looking at the sheep in the field.
“People just stare in amazement when they see Darius and Honey – they’re shocked, they can’t believe how big they are.
“People have never seen rabbits this big before!”

“It’s amazing just how big he is.
“People love coming round to see Darius – he is bigger than most dogs.
“The family all love him and he has a mischievous glint in his eye.
“There is no secret to growing the world’s biggest rabbit – I just look after them as if they were dogs.
