Tying the knot in Cheshire on the Royal Wedding Day

People all over Cheshire will be celebrating on April 29th, but not all the celebrations will be in honour of William and Kate

They’re hoping for good weather in Marple Bridge, where the royal wedding will be marked with a street party. The village centre will be closed to traffic for an afternoon of festivities - complete with music, a bouncy castle and children’s rides.

The event has been organised by the Marple Bridge Association who are expecting up to 1,000 people to join in the fun.

Village traders will be selling food and drink on the day and Clare Dyson from the association, said: ‘We are expecting that people will join in with the spirit of this event and will bring their own chairs and table decorations, and additional food and beverages. All profits from the event will go to Help the Heroes and other British military family charities.’

Meanwhile, other couples tying the knot on April 29th include Sarah Armstrong and Steve Kemp who met four years ago when she was working behind the bar in his local, the Ladybrook Inn at Bramhall. Sarah, 26 and Steve, 40, who live at Stockton Heath, will marry at Statham Lodge in Lymm before honeymooning in California.

Christine and Christopher Gibson from Sandbach will be celebrating their 39th wedding anniversary as William and Kate get married and they have a special message for the happy couple.

‘We hope that William and Kate will have a long and happy life together as we have,’ said Christine. The couple, who have two children, married at St Wilfred’s Church in Mobberley, with a reception at the Legh Arms, Knutsford and a honeymoon in the Lake District.
