The 33-year-old is set to wed her 41-year-old fiancé James Matthews at St Mark's church in Engelfield, England, on May 20, and it is believed the brunette beauty has erected a 140 foot-long glass structure, which is rumoured to be worth £100,000 and has been shipped in from Belgium, in the garden of the Berkshire estate.

The construction of the marquee is being overseen by Peppers Marquees as the company is it is believed to be the only business that has a royal warrant permitting them to supply the large tent to the Prince of Wales.

And it has been reported workmen started setting up the feature over the weekend in preparation for the marital ceremony this Saturday, but it is rumoured it will take them six days to perfect because the structure is so large and there are additional elements including internal lighting, decoration, carpet and heating to fit as well.

A source told the Mail Online: "It's from a Belgian company called PBI and they are shipped over especially for events.

"For the full works, your bill would easily be around the £100,000 mark."

It has also been reported the marquee, which will sit on a camouflage platform, can be seen outside of the venue from the main road outside of the mansion.

Although it is believed 100 guests will attend the church service, it is rumoured an additional 200 guests will join the newlyweds to celebrate afterwards.
