Crowds of well-wishers and reporters have gathered outside the church grounds to see what they could of Pippa Middleton’s wedding on a day of sporadic rain.

Middleton, whose sister is the Duchess of Cambridge, was to marry hedge fund manager James Matthews on Saturday.

After the ceremony at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, a lavish private reception will be held at the bride’s parents’ estate in nearby Bucklebury.

The bride’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, have had an elaborate glass marquee built on their estate for the reception. Guests were advised to bring two outfits so they could change after the wedding ceremony.

The airspace above both villages has been closed to prevent intrusive press crews from flying overhead or launching drones to get video footage.
