But it is not their job. It may be a consideration, but it is not their job.

I'm thinking there will be a deal with a media outlet to get exclusive rights with pay to go to a charitable organization. Just my guess.

I don't blame her for wanting to counter all the trash written about her. Like saying Pippa won't invite Meghan because she's pathologically jealous of her, or saying her parents are pinching pennies to pay for the wedding. If protecting your image means fighting defamation, I say go for it.

I think this would be a smart way to go about it. With an exclusive, the photographer wouldn't be overly intrusive but yet close enough to get good pictures to share with the public. Donating the proceeds from the sale of the exclusive to one of the couple's favorite charity will be a plus too. The braying masses of paps will be held totally at bay knowing its an "exclusive" and therefore won't infringe on the events. This way everybody wins.

The media never got pictures of Catherine attending her Uncle Simon's wedding in 2011, or pictures of her attending her Cousin Adam's weddings a few years ago. I guess her uncle and cousin weren't being realistic, but they lucked out nonetheless.
None of those weddings were Pippa's wedding, miss whirley. The media has pretty much invested a lot of reporting about Pippa's relationships. I'm pretty sure some members of the media will want to cover her wedding. The Middleton's and Matthews family know there will be some media presence, especially due to Catherine, William and the possibility of George taking part.

Pippa is a private citizen just like Simon and Adam. Catherine's presence at their weddings didn't give the media free rein to take photos, so your last sentence is nullified. I'm sure many media members would love to cover the wedding, but they don't always get what they want (hence their whining). I'm sure they would of loved if Pippa had done an engagement photoshoot with her fiancé, a la Zara and Mike. She didn't, tough luck to them.

The fact the she choose her wedding location at a small, secluded church on a private estate with private road access, says a lot. It screams "I want privacy". If she had your thought process of, "The media will be at my wedding, so I might as well as embrace them, because their wants come before my own", then I don't believe she would have chosen two such private locales for her wedding and reception.

The press gets vicious when denied.
Pippa knows this from experience.
I think she will allow some limited coverage. JMO.

My hope (and it may not be the case) but perhaps they will release some photos to one of the glossies in exchange for money to be donated to charity. That seems to be a way many high-profile people handle it now- it reduces the value of paparazzi photos.

If this is the case, then we'll know soon. We knew weeks before Peter and Autumn's wedding that they sold their photos.

If their plan is to sell their wedding photos for either profit or charity, then it's a little strange that they didn't sell an engagement photoshoot. Peter-Autumn and Mike-Zara both had engagement photoshoots. Heck even Missy Percy and TvS had an engagement photo. So far Pippa and James have been very, very private. But that might just be their personalities, neither has social media, while both Peter and Mike have Twitter.

This is mentioned often, as though if monies go to 'charity' it makes it all 'better.' Pippa is entitled to all monies that she negotiates for access. It's no one else's business imo. This equating money flowing to 'charity' in exchange for a piece of one's privacy is repellant. There is something offensive about the quid pro quo being suggested. JMHO. A different perspective.

EDIT: It's been drawn to my attention that what I wrote above could be misconstrued. For clarity: I believe any money Pippa gets paid for pictures/access to her wedding belong to her and should not be funneled to charities. I find the suggestion that receiving such monies are only acceptable if they wind up getting funneled to charities offensive. I find the rationale repellant. Pippa should keep any monies she receives, and doing so (if she does so) does not make her 'low class' imo. Quite the reverse. She would be showing backbone and self respect.

I hope we don't see any photos and that they have a lovely family wedding. Then they fade away and live a happy life out of the news

It is all going to be interesting to see how it plays out. So far, things have been very discreet. I'm enjoying it, both the couple seeming to draw a line and watching the press squirm with a lack of solid info.

And I only say "seeming to" because we could only speculate at intent based on what we are not seeing.

I don't disagree and it wouldn't bother me if she did that and kept the money. But she's marrying a very wealthy man and they don't need the money, and it would be less likely to draw bad PR that way, so it seemed more like a possibility to me than selling them outright, if that makes sense.

Then simple....dint give photos at all. They don't need the money. If they don't want to give it to charity, then don't sell. They don't have any requirement to sell the pictures should be private.

It of course looks greedy if they do. Not simply because they don't need it. They have gone out if their way to make it private. They chose a private access church and reception on a private estate. So for them to sell the photos, it would suggest they made it high security to drive up the price of the photos. Not saying that is right, but certainly would give that impression.

For all of her married birthdays Kate has spent them "privately" so, no, there are no photographs to show who was there or not, assuming there was something to be there at! Those sort of parties tend to fade when you leave your twenties and Kate's first as a royal was her 30th.

Leaving the wider guest list aside I'm much more interested in who will be bridesmaid or matron of honour, assuming not Kate (on which assumption we have nothing to go on other than pure speculation!)

Who are Pippa's close girlfriends?

Quite! James and Donna have a few years on the actual bride and groom!

Family wedding, brother's partner.

Actually we do have some pictures from Catherine's "married" birthdays, including her 31st at Cirque du Soleil and her 34th and 35th at Amner. Harry wasn't at these at he wasn't rumored at the others either.

As for Pippa's female friends, Pippa does in fact have several close female friends that she's known for many years. The most notable being: Alice St John Webster, Camilla Campion-Awwad, Camilla Hook, Rowena Macrae, Philippa Townley, and her unnamed friend whom she has been frequently pictured with since University - you can see her here http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Pippa+M...10/ZF-wTLNl0Sy

I don't agree that James and Donna have "years" on the bride and groom. Pippa and fiance started dating in 2012, and they are reported to be friends dating back to Pippa's university years. James and Donna met in 2013 and started dating in 2013.

Pippa has two close girlfriends that I know of, both of them the same age or a little older than herself, who went to Marlborough and were also friends of Kate's.
One is Alice St John Webster who taught languages and married Gerald Alvenel in 2012, a wedding Kate, William and Pippa attended.
The other is Camilla Campion-Awaad who is part Jordanian and works for the family cosmetic surgery business.

Philippa Townley is an option as chief bridesmaid I suppose, as she's still single. However, if Pippa follows the template of fashionable society weddings in England, most of her bridal attendants will be children. Apart from George I don't know where they will come from, as neither Pippa or James have child cousins or very young nieces. I think Charlotte will be too young.

Not really and definitely not if you're planning it overseas.

A Hen Party ANYHERE in the UK would probably have been a nightmare to plan for. Ok, so plenty of well heeled chums with castles etc. at your disposal maybe, but bit boring when that can be any old weekend!

The overseas weekend break for those who can afford it, tagged as it is on to the overall wedding bill, is getting more and more the norm.

Good on them if they did indeed pull it off!
