Pippa Middleton's wedding: Miss Middleton arrived the church with her father Michael

Guests including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are attending the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews.

Miss Middleton, 33, is the younger sister of the duchess, and got engaged to 41-year-old Mr Matthews last year.

The bride was accompanied by her father, Michael, as they arrived at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire shortly after 11:15 BST.

The church is a few miles from the Middleton family home in Bucklebury and on private land.

It is understood strict security is in place on the estate, with villagers being asked to carry ID on the day, and asked not to speak to the press.
But the bride received a rousing cheer from around 100 royal fans and residents as she arrived.

Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie, and Roger Federer and his wife Mirka are among the guests at the church.
