I thought Autumn came from a very wealthy family? In which case they could off afforded the wedding. I thought they just did it for the extra cash I don't think either are really wanting for money. Peter would have gotten money from the QM like the other grandchildren probably did. I'm sure I've read Autumn described as a heiress and from a wealthy canadian family. I would think Anne would offer help with either of her childrens weddings as part of the reason they are so big etc is because of the RF involvement. I'm looking forward to seeing Zara's dress I hope it isn't anything like Autumns which I didn't really like. Too many bows!

The article I read stated that Peter did not inform the family beforehand and so they let their hair down thinking that the photographer that was there was a personal photographer taking pictures for the family. Apparently, there were some embarrassing pictures of Sophie (countess of Wessex) getting down on the dance floor :-)

Auumns family would I think be described as your basic middle class Canadian family. No great family fortune there.

Renata, are you planning to go to the wedding?

I will certainly try to get some info from the police the night before. They're always friendly, but this time they will be under pressure (terrorism etc.).

Here's another article from "The Scotsman" :

There is talk that Zara and Mike have hired The Britannia [former Royal Yacht] for a wedding party for 150, presumably the younger guests...........let's see;

Re the decision not to allow the couple to sell the rights of the photos to 'Hello' or similar, I was under the impression that Zara had stated that there never was any question of selling the photos - it was a non-starter from the moment 'go'.

I think that the selling of photos is generally problematic - as I know from my Civil Service days, the BP press office used to go to great lengths to keep the 'private' life of Royals away from the Press and even more so in the case of 'non-royals' and so there is the obvious conflict with privacy here: 'no, we are a private couple and don't wish to be photographed' / 'Because of our Royal connections we can sell our wedding for 400,000' [or whatever the true figure is - I have seen several quoted].

Whilst I wholly agree with everyone who has posted, correctly, that Zara is not a 'Royal' in one sense,IMHO she is a member of the wider Royal Family - the taxpayer is having to pick up the Security Bill for the wedding [estimated at 300,000 to 500,000 depending on which paper you read], various roads around the Kirk are now being closed for the next week, and indeed, Zara's status as a member of the wider BRF did enable her to 'pull rank' [not quite the word I am looking
for] and 'bump' the couple who had already booked the Kirk for their wedding on the same day....

Just my thoughts and I do not mean to offend

The Royal family didn't know prior to the wedding day that Hello were coming? Wow. That's excellent. I figured they knew because Edward and Sophie left from another door because they did not want Louise to be in any of the images, which is why she is not in the family photo either. But it would make sense that the family didn't know about it, which is why they let their hair down at the reception. I'd love to see the photo of Sophie dancing. Was this image in the Hello! magazine?

I don't see what the big deal is about doing a spread in Hello! Mike is a famous rugby player, it's in his OWN right to do that sort of thing if he wants. And Zara is a sportsperson too, so she can make her own mind up. I know they don't want to annoy Granny too much, but still...it's their big day.

I love the idea of the Britannia-what a beautiful yacht. The church at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh is adorable. So much deep royal history to the location of the events. This wedding is going to be very storybook like. I can't wait for the photos.

Access to the Britannia isn't as simple as all that. To start with, it is berthed close up to the Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre. One can only enter this from the front of it. There are security fences all around the Britannia and Philip's yacht.

Outside of the fences, there is a very large basin, and one would need a serious camera to get any decent pictures of people. But no doubt there will be photography allowed inside for guests.

The main links again:

The Kirk of the Canongate:
Kirk of the Canongate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

... and Neil Gardner, the minister .... very handsome .....

http://www.canongatekirk.org.uk/

************************************************************

Today's "Scotland on Sunday": "Scotland tables its approval of Zara's wedding"

http://scotlandonsunday.scotsman.com...-of.6806576.jp

The wedding gift from the Scottish Government is a special table, made from an elm felled in the gardens of Holyrood House, by Historic Scotland craftsmen.

One of the motifs on the table is a stag's head with a crucifix between its antlers - the motif of Canongate Kirk.

The costs of the wedding are shared between the families.

The Daily Mail was obviously at Ascot yesterday as I was told the same thing - see my post of yesterday....

Since the party is apparently to take place the night before the wedding, I hope it ends in time for Zara to get her beauty sleep......

I read they knew pics of the wedding were being sold but not of the reception and William was very angry at Phillip bc Kate was at wedding and pics of her and Chelsy were published.....

I'm very excited for this wedding, as the church is on a public road whereas her brothers was held in the confines of Windsor Castle. I'm sure we will get shots of royals arriving and leaving at the wedding and also for the pre-wedding bash on the Britannia. The Queen must be so delighted to be able to use the Britannia once more for a happy family occasion like this.

It is wonderful that this couple have in some way brought the wedding to the people with the church location. So all will not be confined. Cannot wait to get a glimpse of the royals arriving.

Will the wedding be televised, or will there a live stream?

The wedding won't be televised, we'll probably see clips on the news of arrivals and exits.
