Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's sister Pippa Middleton married financier and millionaire James Matthews in a church wedding at St Mark’s Church in Englefield near London.
The high-profile wedding was attended by royals, including Prince William and his brother Prince Harry. Prince William and Kate's children three-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte were the cynosures of all eyes at the wedding. They played their roles of page boy and bridesmaid perfectly at the wedding.
The bride wore a pristine white wedding gown by Giles Deacon which was accessorised with a pretty tiara and carried a cute bouquet which included peony, sweet pea, astilbe, freesia, waxflower, green bell and alchemilla mollis.
The wedding was followed by a grand reception at the Middleton family's expansive family estate in Bucklebury which was elaborately decked up for the function. A stunning 150-feet glass marquee was erected in the estate's backyard to house the guests.
To keep the function out of the eyes of media a strict 'no social media' rule was put up by the couple. A strict mobile phone ban was also enforced at the reception area. The guests were asked to hand over their phones and were encouraged to take pictures at the photo booth arranged inside.
The reception was also attended by Prince Harry's current girlfriend Meghan Markle and tennis star Roger Federer.
