Details of Pippa Middleton’s 2017 wedding to hedge fund manager James Matthews have emerged.

The couple, who have been together for two years, will wed on May 20, 2017 in Pippa’s hometown of Berkshire at the St Mark’s Church in Englefield. The reception will be held in a grand marquee in the nearby family home.

If you’re wondering where Kate, William, George and Charlotte come in, brace yourselves for some serious cute pictures. Princess Charlotte will be a flower girl while Prince George will make up one of the page boys. Kate supposedly won’t be a bridesmaid (as she doesn’t want to take attention away from the bride, reportedly), but will read at the ceremony instead.

As for the all-important dress? British designer Giles Deacon was spotted carrying garment bags into Pippa’s home in November, sparking speculation that he will be the man behind her wedding dress.

Known for his dramatic gowns loved by the likes of Erin O’Connor, this will definitely be one to watch – especially since Pippa was almost responsible for stealing the limelight on the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding day.

Unlike a lot of high profile weddings, Pippa is said to be refusing the help of a wedding planner and taking control of proceedings by herself.

May 20 couldn’t come soon enough.
