Robbie Williams jumped on stage for an impromptu performance of some of his greatest hits at Eugenie and Jack’s wild wedding reception in a marquee on the grounds of the Royal Lodge at Windsor last night, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.
The singer led the festivities at a fairground themed bash laid on by her parents Andrew and Fergie as guests partied the night away in a marquee festooned with cascading floral display in autumnal colours created by wedding florist Ron Van Helden, seen in snap shared by London-based Austrian fashion stylist Caroline Sieber, who is an ambassador for Chanel.
There were bound to be a few sore heads this morning after the bash with a drinks menu specially curated by the groom in advance, including Casamigos Tequila
As well as the glamorous evening bash, guests flouted a social media ban to take to Instagram to offer a glimpse into the wedding breakfast at Windsor Castle yesterday, showing attendees quaffing champagne, sharing jokes and toasting the bride and groom as they tied the knot at St George’s Chapel.
Stars including Ricky Martin, Liv Tyler and Kate Moss shared intimate photos from inside Windsor Castle’s St George’s Hall where they rubbed shoulders with 850 more guests who enjoyed finger food and wedding cake all washed down with Pol Roger champagne.
Phones4U tycoon John Caudwell who flew to Windsor by helicopter with his wife Modesta Vzesniauskaite for the celebrations shared a selfie with his old pal Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda.
He was ultimately responsible for their daughter Teddy’s role as bridesmaid yesterday, after introducing the singer to Fergie and her daughter on a holiday aboard his yacht.
Later guests changed into more glamorous evening attire and made their way to the Great Lodge in the royal park for the reception where VIPs including Demi Moore and Robbie Williams enjoyed a fairground themed party complete with dodgems, a coconut shy and a wild evening of celebrations that lasted deep into the night.
Despite scoffing champagne to the early hours, the guests are set to continue the party this evening when they do it all over again for round two of Eugenie and Jack’s celebrations.

Go for a fairytale dress like Princess Eugenie in Peter Pilotto
Peter Pilotto bespoke wedding dress

It’s the second Royal wedding of the year, and the second time we’ve fallen head over heels in love with a big white dress.
When wondering who might make Princess Eugenie’s bridal gown there were plenty of names in the mix. Erdem, Ralph & Russo, Stella McCartney…
But as she stepped out of the car and headed into St. George’s Chapel it was announced that her beautiful dress was the work of Peter Pilotto. It’s a million miles away from the designer’s signature bold prints, but she is a big fan of the label.
We love the elgant long sleeves, jacquard fabric and slightly off shoulder shape with fold over detailing. The voluminous skirt and dramatic train are very regal and when teamed with the Queen Mother’s Greville emerald tiara and Charlotte Olympia shoes, it’s everything we expected and so much more.

Eugenie first spotted the Aston Martin when the newlyweds arrived at the Equerry’s entrance at Windsor Castle to say their goodbyes.
A few minutes before they arrived, the Duke of York strode from the castle to watch the Royal Household’s transport manager Alex Garty arrive in the James Bond car and manoeuvre it into position.
Andrew joked he wanted it a few feet forward and quipped “no pressure” as Mr Garty gingerly moved the car.
Jack Brooksbank’s speech was full of praise to his new wife, his former headteacher said
