With just days to go before Pippa Middleton ties the knot, the venue for her Berkshire wedding reception has already been transformed.
A huge glass structure has been installed in the grounds of Pippa’s family home in the village of Bucklebury, where she and James Matthews will celebrate their nuptials with family and friends on Saturday.
Following the church service in nearby Englefield, around 300 guests are expected to dance the night away inside the glass palace. It might not be Buckingham Palace, where older sister Kate celebrated her marriage, but it’s safe to say this venue, which was reportedly shipped over for the occasion from Belgium, is pretty impressive.
According to The Daily Mail, the bespoke 40 x 120 foot greenhouse is expected to hold over 300 guests and thanks to the size of the unique design, which requires carpeting, heating and lighting, this kind of installation comes with a price tag of around £100,000 ($128,904).

Peppers Marquees, which holds the royal warrant for supplying marquees to Prince Charles, reportedly started setting up the building over the weekend, although with a seating plan to consider, along with the color scheme, flowers and all-important table decorations, it could be days before the venue is complete. It looks like wedding administration will be sweeping over the Middleton house for the rest of this week.
