Spencer Matthews may have spent the afternoon in the company of royalty at the wedding of his brother James to Pippa Middleton, but his girlfriend, Vogue Williams, spent the day in Dublin thanks to the bride's 'no ring, no bring' rule.

The Irish reality star (31) hosted a 'Get Active' event in Dublin department store Arnotts this afternoon, offering her top health tips and showcasing her unique gym style.

Spencer accompanied his older brother, hedge fund manager James Matthews, to the ceremony this morning in Englefield as he wed Pippa, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge.

While Spencer dressed up in his formal wear, Vogue was in much more casual attire as she tweeted from the event this afternoon.

"My office for the day," she tweeted, along with a picture in her stylish gymwear.

Bride Pippa enforced a 'no ring, no bring' rule earlier this year, ahead of her wedding to James, which meant that guests could only bring their partners if they were engaged or married.

The bride was said to have been wary of Spencer's mischievous personality ahead of the wedding, and is rumoured to have requested his best man's speech to be 'toned down'.

The sister of Kate Middleton married her love earlier today at St Mark's Church in Englefield, in front of 150 A-list guests. Although Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle did not attend the ceremony this morning, it is believed she will attend the reception this evening.

The couple exchanged vows at 11.30am at the pretty St. Mark's Church in Englefield, where niece and nephew Princess Charlotte and Prince George acted as flower girl and page boy.

Bride Pippa stunned in a bespoke Giles Deacon dress which she teamed with a Stephen Jones veil, a Maidenhair Fern tiara, and Manolo Blahnik ivory satin shoes.

Among the guests packing into the small Berkshire church were Roger Federer and his wife Mirka, Price Harry and of course the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Pippa and James have spent the past week preparing for all eyes to be on them as they tied the knot in a ceremony on front of at least 100 guests - including two potential future British Kings - before they head to the Middleton family home for a Scottish-themed reception.
