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.
