Weddings both local and royal will be celebrated at an upcoming event featuring more than 30 wedding dresses, photographs and other memorabilia.

Attleborough Heritage Group is hosting 'A Lovely Day for a Wedding' on October 28-29 to mark hundreds of years in weddings in the area and the Queen and Prince Philip's upcoming 70th anniversary.

Christine Williams, from the heritage group, said: 'I am delighted with the enthusiasm amongst three generations of local brides in sharing their gowns and memories with us.

'We also have wonderful support from the local wedding industry in the wedding fair which will also be on display.'

A Edwardian-themed wedding, open to the public, will take place at 1.30pm October 28, and there will also be an illustrated talk at 7.30pm - tickets are £7 from the Heritage Centre at Soma House, Cranks Bicycles and AW Myhill. The event will take place at Attleborough's St Mary's Church.
