Earlier this week, wedding preparations appeared to be well underway as staff were seen erecting marquees, teepees and a stage at Castle Howard, where the couple are holding their reception.

The singer, 32, and her art dealer beau, 27, are set to host an array of their famous pals at the stunning country estate, including Princess Eugenie, Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora.

Images taken from the breathtaking venue show earlier this week showed around 50 members off staff working to set up several structures around the grounds, including two huge marquees either side of the Atlas Fountain.

Elsewhere, workers could be seen constructing teepees, which is where some of the guests may enjoy a spot of glamping as they spend the night there following a raucous evening of celebrations.

A selection of the tents had been erected in the estate’s Rose Garden, while another batch of teepees had been set up nearby, so that the guests are able to easily interact.

Ellie has previously teased that she has a selection of star performers as the entertainment on her wedding night, however she remained tight-lipped on which celebrity singers will be joining her celebration.  

Reports have previously speculated that Ellie and Caspar’s reception will have a festival theme, which is further fuelled by the teepee and delivery of wicker baskets, furniture and light fittings.

Castle Howard is described as one of Britain’s most iconic stately homes and gardens and the Burn singer has been linked to the venue for a number of months, due to Caspar’s strong links with the county.

Ellie, who sang at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding, is thought to have extended an invitation to the royal couple however her former flame Prince Harry and is wife Megan are unlikely to attend.

According to The Sun’s Bizarre column, the chart topper was seen to send invites to Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice as well as their mother Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

Ellie has been good friends with Princess Eugenie for years, with the pair attending a string of nights out together and holidaying in Jordan in 2017.

Ellie and Caspar are said to have joined forces with Princess Eugenie and Jack on a number of double dates. 

The blonde beauty is reportedly pulling out all the stops for her big day, splashing out £20,000 on flowers alone while Bollinger champagne will be served.

It’s reported that they have hired florist Sue Barnes of Lavender Green, who did Pippa Middleton’s 2017 wedding.

Masterminding the affair is party planner Sarah Haywood — whose average wedding costs a whopping £1.2 million.     

There will reportedly be ‘designer vegan’ food for guests to chow down on, while as well as the rumoured star performers they will also be entertained by a DJ playing 90’s hits including The Spice Girls.

Ellie announced her engagement to the British art dealer, who was educated at Eton and studied history of art and architecture at Harvard University in the U.S., via a formal announcement in The Times last year.

It read: ‘Mr C.W.F. Jopling and Miss E.J. Goulding. The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.’

The couple has been dating since March 2017, after reportedly being introduced through mutual friends, which is rumoured to have been Princess Eugenie.

He was said to be working as an art dealer at Sotheby’s New York when he met Ellie, but the couple moved back to the UK in preparation for married life.   

After the wedding was formally announced last year, Goulding said was looking forward to being a ‘loved-up wife’.

In a post to her 14 million followers on Instagram, she shared a black and white photo of herself kissing a smiling Mr Jopling on the cheek.

The Love Me like You Do star wrote in a caption alongside the photo: ‘I tend to keep my life very private these days and I have enjoyed the time I’ve had away from all the madness.

‘But we’ve had so many beautiful messages of support and love the past few days, as have our families, that we wanted to say thank you so much! We appreciate it more than you could ever know.’

Addressing Mr Jopling, she added: ‘You’re the most wonderful person I’ve ever known, and I can’t wait to be your very giggly, in awe and loved-up wife.’

She has previously been in relationships with McFly star Dougie Poynter, radio presenter Greg James, DJ Skrillex and actor Jeremy Irvine, and she is also rumoured to have dated singer Ed Sheeran.
