Thousands of people took to the streets of St Helier this weekend, for Jersey's third annual Pride parade.

The celebration, which is organised by Channel Island charity Liberate, is held to honour equality and acceptance for people from all walks of life.

This year's Pride took place a day after Jersey's Chief Minister confirmed that equal marriage legislation won't be coming in at the end of the year as expected.

Organisers say the announcement made the event more poignant.

But despite the Cheif Minister's announcement many islanders still supported this year's parade theme of 'Wedding's' to tie in with the islands legalising same-sex marriage.

People dressed in wedding gowns, veils and hats to celebrate in "the biggest wedding party ever".
