Putting on the society wedding of the year doesn't come cheap - with Pippa's nuptials estimated to have cost £700,000.

Pippa Middleton said "I do" to fiance and hedge fund manager James Matthews on Saturday during a lovely wedding ceremony at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, England, near where she and her sister, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, grew up.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews smile for the cameras after their wedding at St Mark's Church in Englefield, England Saturday, May 20, 2017.

She rearranged her train and other parts of her dress before she made her procession into St Mark's, a reversal of Kate's 2011 wedding to William, when Pippa was pictured fussing over her sister's gown.

The 33-year-old party planner and regular marathon runner opted for a bicep-framing, cap-sleeved, white lace appliqué, full skirted gown by British designer Giles Deacon.

The Duchess of Cambridge has already admitted she is a little anxious about how her children will behave.

Meghan Markle flew all the way to England for Pippa Middleton's wedding, but where was she during the ceremony?

As they drove away, future king George gave a wave to the small group of photographers and cameramen capturing the event.

The Duchess of Cambridge, dressed in a bespoke dusty pink Alexander McQueen dress, was on child minding duties while the young royal's nanny, Maria Borrallo, was seated inside for the hour-long ceremony.

The stunning six-tier cake by Fiona Cairns, who made the cake for the Royal Wedding, is thought to have cost up to £15,000, while the groom's party wore £900-a-pair hand-made shoes from Edward Green. Prince William and Prince Harry were also in attendance.
