One particular highlight was the baby coffee eclairs, according to one guest who said: "They were divine. We could barely concentrate on the speeches."
Cara Delevingne, Robbie Williams, Jack Whitehall, Ricky Martin, Jamie Redknapp and Oliver Proudlock were among the stars attending.
As the guests sipped champagne, Eugenie’s dad Andrew also reportedly broke royal protocol as he delivered a "hilarious" and "emotional" speech at the wedding reception.
It featured jokes, emotion and ‘Barbie and Ken’ memories.
Eugenie wearing a stunning Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos bridal gown, wed Jack this morning.
And after sharing two kisses on the chapel’s West Steps, the newlyweds were joined at an afternoon reception by their loved ones.
The Duke, 58, is said to have spoken of his pride in "Team Eug and Jack" during his "classic" speech, which was "full of so much love".
Poking fun at his new son-in-law, he apparently told guests an amusing story about how Jack once confused himself with the family dog.
He recalled yelling at the dog, also named Jack, to get off a chair – only for Eugenie’s partner to jump up, according to the newspaper.
Andrew also reportedly broke protocol by turning around to hug Jack – and spoke of being a dad to Eugenie and older daughter, Princess Beatrice.
Groom Jack also reportedly delivered a moving speech at the reception.
Tonight guests are expected to party until the small hours in the bash organised by Eugenie’s parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.
The glitzy do, being paid for by Andrew and the Queen, is being held at The Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park – home to the Duke of York.
A fairground is said to have been set up in the garden including a Ferris wheel, dodgems and a coconut shy.
The ‘wild blowout’ this evening will be followed by a “more relaxed” party all day on Saturday which is expected to have a “festival vibe”.
A source told the Mail Online : “There will be dodgems and funfair rides, coconut shies, lots of food stalls, loads of cocktails, bloody Marys for the hangovers and a festival vibe.”
Earlier today, Eugenie had waved to crowds as she arrived at the chapel, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also tied the knot, for her wedding.
The Queen’s granddaughter made her entrance at the church’s West Steps in a 1977 Rolls Royce Phantom VI belonging to her grandmother.
Jack was waiting at the altar, alongside his best man and brother, Tom.
He uttered "Oh, my heart" when he saw his bride, before adding "Oh break my heart."
