A celebration of weddings at Church near Norwich

It is set to be the wedding of the new millennium when Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot on April 29.

And one church near Norwich is looking to extend the party with their celebration of marriage weekend.

St John the Baptist and All Saints at Old Lakenham are holding a unique display of wedding photos and frocks revealing the hundreds of happy couples that once got married at the church.

The event is being held at the Community Centre and The Church of St John the Baptist, Harwood Road, Old Lakenham, on Saturday May 7, from noon until 4pm, and Sunday May 8, from noon until 4pm.

There will also be the chance for people to renew their vows at 3 pm on the Sunday.
