The full details of Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Matthews have emerged... suffice to say it was a rather expensive affair.

The wedding took place in at St Mark's church in the village of Englefield, Berkshire and there was also a champagne reception, according to The Telegraph.

This was followed by the reception, held in a glass marquee measuring 140 feet in the Middletons' garden, which was decorated in the theme of an enchanted forest.

It is believed that all staff serving food at the event were models and the table plan was unusual, as couples were not allowed to sit together.

Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle travelled 3,000 miles to the reception, and was picked up by the Prince who made a 100 mile round trip.

Security was tight and those attending the reception had to provide a password to get in as well as send in a photo of themselves.

Those attending the reception included the likes of Roger Federer, Ben Fogle and Princess Eugenie.

Guests later left the marquee to watch a Spitfire fly-past, as it was deemed dangerous to stay inside, in case anything went wrong.

The bride's father, Michael Middleton, gave two speeches over the course of the day, and reality TV star Spencer Matthews also gave a speech at the reception, as he is James Matthews' brother.

The couple performed their first dance accompanied by a saxophonist and a DJ. Footage and photos of the couple were also projected onto the Middletons' Bucklebury Manor home.

The bride wore two dresses on the day, a lace dress by Giles Deacon for the ceremony and a white floor-length gown with a V-neck for the reception.

Whilst several photos of the wedding ceremony have been released, the couple made sure photos of the reception were kept private.
