With only three weeks to go till her big day, it seems Pippa Middleton is making sure all the final preparations are right on track. Earlier this week, the 33-year-old was spotted out with parents Michael and Carole at St Marks' Church in Berkshire - the place where she will tie the knot with financier James Matthews on May 20. In newly-released pictures, the Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister appeared to be in relaxed spirts as she paid a visit to the small, quaint country church, located on the privately owned Englefield Estate.

Pippa and her fiancé James were last pictured at the church on Christmas Day, when they attended last year's service with the Middletons. The ceremony will be officiated by Rev. Nick Wynne-Jones, resident priest at St Mark's. The bride's sister Kate is on the star-studded guest list, as is her husband Prince William and the royal couple's children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The reception will be held back at the Middletons' family home in Bucklebury, seven miles away. The beautiful 18 acres are the perfect backdrop for a dream wedding reception. Michael and Carole Middleton's estimated £5.6million, seven-bedroom Berkshire property has ample grounds to accommodate a luxurious marquee, screened by surrounding woodland and fields.

Although it is yet to be confirmed whether the Duchess of Cambridge will be the Maid of Honour on the special day, Kate has been a supportive older sister and was spotted visiting Pippa at her home earlier this month, where the pair may have discussed last-minute wedding day details. It's believed that her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte will act as page boy or ring-bearer, and flower girl, respectively.
