Pippa Middleton enforces social media ban for all her wedding guests

The bride-to-be 'has complete control over the wedding'.

Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Matthews is under a social media ban.

Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews may be the British wedding of the year, but don’t expect any selfies of the event to be leaked online.

It has been reported Middleton doesn't want a single photo of her nuptials to be shared by her guests.

The ceremony, which is set to take place on the morning of Saturday 20 May 11.30am (10.30pm NZT) is under a complete social media ban, according to The Mirror.

While limited details have been leaked about the very private nuptials between Pippa Middleton, sister to the Duchess of Cambridge, and her fiancé hedge fund manager, James Matthews, a source has revealed “Pippa has complete control over the wedding, right down to the finest details.”

“Guests have been told they will be banned from taking in cameras, although it is understood they will be allowed to keep their phones.

“However, there’s a strict ‘no photos’ policy in place.”

There’s some speculation the ban may have been put in place to keep her future-brother-in law, Spencer Matthews in check.

The reality television star – and London socialite – has over 1.8 million followers and Instagram and Twitter. He has appeared on numerous shows including Made in Chelsea, The Bachelor and The Jump.

Matthews is expected to be the best man at the wedding, and it’s understood the bride-to-be has had “stern words” with Matthews about uploading any selfies to his social media accounts.

Invitations to the church ceremony at The St Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire have been limited to 130 guests.

This will be followed by a luxury reception, for an exclusive guest list, on the grounds of Middleton’s parents’ lush estate in Bucklebury.
