More than 30 wedding dresses filled the aisles and hung from the pillars at St Mary's Church, Attleborough.
Attleborough Heritage Group organised the festival of weddings as a celebration of the Queen and Prince Philip's upcoming 70th anniversary.
Brides from the area, many of whom had married in St Mary's Church more than 50 years ago, also brought photographs and memorabilia to add to the visual display.
The celebration was officially opened by the Attleborough town mayor, Jeremy Burton, who cut the ribbon in the morning.
The rector of Sandringham was in attendance as a guest preacher, closing the festivities with a 4pm service.
Christine Williams, who organised the event, said: 'Everyone at the Attleborough Heritage Group worked really hard, with more than 200 people viewing the displays. After the event we enjoyed an excellent buffet in the church hall.'
