All set for wedding parties

THE Royal wedding takes place today in Westminster Abbey and many of our readers will be celebrating the big day with parties and fun and games.

As the wedding date has got closer and closer, the wedding has begun to really capture everyone’s attention.

Over 2bn people worldwide are expected to tune into watch the wedding on the day and people in the Eastwood and Kimberley area are no different with several street closures in force to allow people to celebrate the nuptials in style.

Reporter Laura Rands and photographer Brian Eyre will be out and about around the area today to see how our readers are marking the big day.

See next week’s Advertiser for a full picture round-up from many of the parties taking place.
