From carousels to slides: Inside Princess Eugenie's insanely fun wedding reception.

For many celebrities, a two-day festival extravaganza isn’t anything too out of the ordinary.

Until it’s the reception of an internationally broadcasted royal wedding, of course.

From Robbie Williams, to Australian Holly Valance, and even Kate Moss, the celebrity guest list at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank‘s wedding was sufficiently star-studded.

But guests aside, Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding reception was… incredible.

Here’s what we know.

There was a carousel. Not a fake one. A real, moving, life-sized carousel.

????Inside Eugenie & Jack’s Festival-Themed Wedding Party???? Guests at Princess Eugenie’s after-party interpreted the social media ban as more suggestion than rule. Fortunately, that means we have some amazing insider pics from the bash. Read about what went down, or just scroll through the gallery to see some epic moments from the two-day shindig. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ????Party Bus???? After a more formal reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II, Jack & Eugenie’s guests were ferried by bus to the home of Andrew & Fergie, the (happily divorced) Duke & Duchess of York. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eugenie & Jack, however, made their way from Windsor Castle to Royal Lodge in an Aston Martin DB10—one of eight models designed for the Bond film, Spectre. Talk about fancy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ????Friday Night Festivities???? The fairground-themed party had a pizza truck for late-night snacks, A-list guests in formalwear, LED lights galore & an impromptu performance of “Angel” by Robbie Williams (whose daughter was in the wedding). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ????Saturday’s Festival Vibe???? The newlyweds hosted a brunch, complete with cocktails, Bloody Marys, hangover food galore & a mariachi band to top it all off. Guests indulged in fairground games & rides—including a Ferris wheel & carousel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PSA: All three wedding parties were paid for entirely by the Duke and Duchess of York. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1.

There was an actual slide. Which we think might be for adults.

But it doesn’t stop there.

There were flowers. Lots of flowers.

And what looks like an entrance, or a feature wall, there are just so. many. flowers.

And according to Tamara Beckwith Veroni, there was “way too much tequila”.

To top it all off, Eugenie had a pink biker jacket embroidered with Mrs Brooksbank on the back.

We are getting serious Grease vibes.

And by the end, everyone looked like this.

And we are hardly surprised.
