To the cheers and applause from members of the public, who had gathered to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds and their guests, Pippa and James embraced on the steps of St Mark's in Englefield, just moments after tying the knot.

The couple were married on Saturday morning in front of their closest friends and family – including the bride's sister Kate, Prince William, and their children, bridesmaid Princess Charlotte and Prince George, who acted as page boy. Also on the guest list was Prince Harry, and James' younger brother and best man, Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews.
