Being described as ‘the society wedding of the year’, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton married multimillionaire James Matthews in a village church.

The society wedding of the year has seen Pippa Middleton wed James Matthews in front of royalty, family and friends.

The wedding took place at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire.

Famous guests to the wedding included the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and former Wimbledon tennis champion Roger Federer.

Other guests included the groom's brother, former Made In Chelsea regular and reality TV personality Spencer Matthews, Pippa's uncle Gary Goldsmith and Princess Eugenie.

Pippa was driven to the church in an open-topped vintage Jaguar wearing a bespoke Giles Deacon wedding gown, designed to give the impression of being seamless.

The dress was worn with a Stephen Jones veil, a Maidenhair Fern tiara and Manolo Blahnik ivory satin shoes.

Her father Michael took his youngest daughter by the hand as he escorted her into the church. Her mother Carole met them at the entrance.  Her older sister Kate also helped her sister by rearranging her train and other parts of her dress before she made her procession into St Mark's church.

Royal watchers were cheered by the sight of Prince George and Princess Charlotte with the other pageboys and bridesmaids who arrived in classic cars.

The weather was kind to the couple as the rain started a few moments before the 45 minute service began but stopped before the church doors opened at the end of the service.

Her sister Kate played a part in helping by coordinating the young bridesmaids and page boys into the classic cars that had brought them to the church.
