The wedding of Kate Middleton's little sister has been billed as a relaxed country affair, but from the look of the marquee that Pippa has installed in the back garden of her parent's house, it is set to be quite the event.

The enormous glass marquee is estimated to cost about £100,000 and has been flown in from Belgium.

It's so large in size that it can be seen from the public road in front of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire – which is dubbed Middleton Manor.

According to sources, workmen have been busy putting up the structure for days on a camouflaged stage in a field behind Michael and Carole Middleton’s estate.

Although around 100 guests are reported to be looking on as Pippa and James exchange their vows at the local St Mark’s Church, more than 300 people are expected to attend the reception.

High-profile guests will include Pippa's sister Kate Middleton and husband Prince William.

Prince Harry and his Suits actress girlfriend Meghan Markle will also be in attendance, while Pippa’s niece and nephew will also have starring roles – Princess Charlotte will be a bridesmaid while three-year-old Prince George will be a page boy.

Pippa and James have also splashed out on fancy outdoor toilets for the event, which come with a fee of £4,000.

The 33-year-old's dress, which is rumoured to be a bespoke gown by designer Giles Deacon, is also said to come with a price tag of £10,000.

However, Pippa has apparently asked her wedding guests to bring an extra outfit with them, so that they can change ahead of the reception in the evening.
