The UK is gearing up for a very special The Royal Wedding on April 29, when Prince William and Catherine Middleton will be married in Westminster Abbey in London.

Unlike many previous Royal Weddings, this event will have its own website -- and St. James's Palace has chosen to use Google's computing infrastructure to power the site.

The site, "The Royal Wedding" which just went live is hosted on Google App Engine, which allows developers easily to build and host their web applications on Google's own computing infrastructure. It's a great way to run apps quickly, more securely, and at scale, which makes it ideal for such an important national occasion.

The Royal Wedding site

The site is a great team effort between Accenture's, who built the site, the web design agency Reading Room led on the design and creative work, and the App Engine team.

The site will be regularly updated by St. James's Palace in the run up to the wedding day.
