Guests can become a prince or princess for the day by making a crown at the event's craft workshop.

Alternatively, those with a sweet tooth can take part in cupcake decorating classes, or grab a cream tea to celebrate in true British style.

A prosecco truck will also ensure attendees have a glass of fizz on hand to toast the happy couple.

For a chance to win a prize at the event, guests are encouraged to come dressed in their finery as an imitation prince or princess.

The Mayor of Gravesham, Councillor David Hurley, will be judging the entrants at 2pm on the day.

Activities will run from 10am this Saturday, and the screening starts at 12pm.

The market, located in High Street, Gravesend, opened more than 750 years ago.
