Neighbours were making the most of the sunshine to commemorate the royal wedding with their very own street party.
More than 100 residents were welcomed to the party in Edward Close, Gidea Park, on Saturday, May 19, to mark Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot.
From a barbecue and homemade cakes, to a bouncy castle and music, there was plenty to enjoy on the day.
One of the organisers Dave Watts said: “Edward Close has developed a tight knit community over the years, helped in large part by our occasional street parties.
“Our first was for William and Kate’s wedding in 2011, and we also held them in 2012 on the occasion of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and in 2016 for the Queen’s 90th birthday.
“We think it’s a lovely way to bring the community together at the same time as celebrating the marriage of Harry and Meghan.”
