Pippa Middleton was the star attraction at a friend’s Scottish wedding at the weekend, with the Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister helping the couple mark their big day in style.

Events planner Pippa, 28, had been helping her close friend Camilla Hook, 28, and her fiancé Sam Holland, 27, organise their special day for weeks, working closely with them to ensure everything went without a hitch.

And Pip’s experience in the industry certainly seemed to help the day flow well, with the guests attending the wedding in Aberlady, East Lothian, snapped with huge smiles on their faces as they enjoyed the celebrations.

“Pippa has been helping Camilla to plan the day for weeks and it went brilliantly,” one guest told the Daily Record.

“Pippa knew she would be a star attraction but everything was done to keep her appearance low-key.”

The 28-year-old brunette beauty had been liaising with Camilla, who she met at a cookery course 10 years ago, and Sam, on the final preparations for their reception at the Hook family mansion Camptoun House.

Family and friends enjoyed a champagne reception and a wedding breakfast, before they hit the dance floor, with Pippa herself joining in with a Scottish reel.

Earlier in the day guests saw the happy couple exchange their vows at the picturesque at Aberlady Parish Church.

Pippa stole the show in a tight-fitting wine-red dress - which looked like a red version of the Issa dress big sister Kate wore to announce her engagement to Prince William - which she accessorised with a hat of the same colour, black shoes and a black clutch bag.

The bride looked stunning in a lace off the shoulder gown, and carried a bouquet of off-white roses.

The wedding was especially poignant for Sam, the grandson of Oscar winning director Lord Attenborough, who lost his mother, sister and grandmother in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

One  guest told the paper: “The family have been through such terrible heartbreak but this was their day to celebrate.”
