Yes, but you have to have access to the church grounds to take those photos. Photographers had access because the estate was open to allow parishioners to attend service. That won't be the case with the wedding.

There is two options 1 Pippa allows photographers outside, perhaps limiting how many 2 they are long distance photos taken from the edge of the property.

I can find numerous press outlets saying there was a PR from KP - but no actual PR?

Also AdmirerUS - why is toddler Charlotte announced as being a bridesmaid - not a flower-girl?

Even junior bridesmaids are at least nine/ten years of age. A toddler bridesmaid? Really?

(And why mis-spell Middleton in the heading?)

In the UK it's seems customary to use the term bridesmaid to refer to all female attendants of the bride. If you look at royal weddings, it's the same. Grace and Eliza were three and referred as bridesmaids.

They are limiting the number of photographers and where they can take pictures

I find it totally appalling that some photographers could even think to be snubbed by a limitation of photographers at a private wedding held in a private venue for two private people.

Having a profession as a photographer and working to earn a living by selling pictures of subjects to various media does not in any way, shape or form mean that they should immediately always have access to whomever they want.

Some people!!!

A wedding is only a public event when it is being funded by the public. Private citizens, even those whose sister is a duchess, pay for private weddings.

Exactly. Whatever beef that one photographer has was left out way too long in the sun and it seems caused a spell of food poisoning.

Just because a person is well known to the public and there's public interest in this person, no one has the right to infringe on their privacy. I don't care if they're royal, they're celebrities or the next inmate to be executed on death row.

If Pippa and James were going to be married in front of the statue of Lord Nelson in Trafalgar square, it would be assumed that the more, the merrier and come one and all as its public. Imagine the traffic jams!!

I really don't get the fuss about Pippa. She's not royal by blood, she and the Middletons did not become royal upon Kate's marriage to William, and she will not become royal upon her own marriage. Pippa has not accomplished anything great in her own right. The Middletons have been knocked for being social climbers, and the wedding press seems to play into that.

She's a sister-in-law to a future king and aunt to another future king along with having a Duchess for a sister and a Princess for a niece.

As the public loves to follow the Cambridges, Pippa got caught on the coattails of the interest. None of the Middletons are at fault for attention seeking or social climbing. The media makes money off of them so therein lies the blame.

I don't get this either. I really hoped she would have a family wedding. She's not royal and this is crazy

Yes, I got that later. I guess, in my twisted mind "senior royals" were associated with adult ones.

I agree this wasn't a good look for Pippa. And I feel a little bad for her because like others mentioned I'm pretty sure this half-brained idea was spearheaded by KP staff who were tired of getting phone calls on the subject. So lackadaisical they couldn't be bothered to double check that they spelt Middleton correctly on their press release.

So W&C&H look fickle on their privacy vs. public interest stance. And Pippa looks self-important. But hey, KP staff have it easier for themselves in the short run, so that's all that counts. Of course, in the long run they've dug themselves a deeper hole and will now be asked much more Middleton related questions in the future.

The Middleton's are the future King's in-laws and the family of the future Queen. This has put them in the spotlight and there's media interest in them and their weddings. I guess some are too young to remember the huge interest there was in the Spencer's. It's been years, but they too had the medias interest.

The Cambridge's and palace official maintains their stand on privacy and public interest. They're just being realistic about the media interest in this wedding.

KP's PR has never been of high-standards, and I'm not surprised by the misspelling of names in their press statement. What's puzzling to me is that, didn't Pippa hire a PR firm that was once hired by the Beckham's? They should know that KP releasing a press statement for a private citizen is going to come with backlash from the public, no matter that 5 senior royals are going to be in attendance.

I do not know how PR works in the Royal Family, but William, Kate and Harry should hire a new PR firm to manage their public image. It is not looking good, and that is coming from a Cambridge's and Harry's fan.

I'm not sure I understand what the issue is, if one even exists. I agree that the Middletons have at times, seemed a bit...eager, but in the case of Pippa's wedding, surely you would expect her sister, her brother-in-law, and their children to attend. I don't think Prince Harry needs to be there, but the Cambridges have every right to attend. Because they're going, it will undoubtedly be a circus, but what is the alternative? Not going at all?

My thoughts exactly. I remember being puzzled when there was all that talk about her bum/backside at her sister's wedding. I thought "do the British people not know bums?" Women like Jennifer Lopez and Serena Williams has butt/booty/backside. 😆Not Pippa. So I never got what all the fuss was about.

The one thing I like about Pippa and give credit to her for is that she does occasionally used her love for sports for charitable reasons. I think that is commendable.

I don't think it matters why the public is (mostly) interested in Pippa.
But they are.

Why are people interested in the Kardashians? I don't get that either.
But they are.

I think that, short of selling an exclusive to HELLO (tacky) Pippa is doing the best she can to limit coverage and avoid a circus.

It's really hopeless to keep the press out entirely; this way, she has a bit of control.

Why shouldn't Harry be invited ? I was invited to the wedding of my sister-in-law's brother and I barely know him. I think that happens in many families.

Oh the paps have done their research this time! One of paps (the infamous Tanna) is using a ruling in a lawsuit Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas had against a photographer who took pics of their wedding. The judge ruled weddings are public occasions and couples should have no expectations of privacy. I guess Tanna got tired of being threatened with lawsuits by KP so he does his stalking with legal precedence now.

Link to the lawsuit ruling

I'm old enough to remember the Spencer's there was nothing remotely like what we have seen with Pippa
