Meghan Markle and Prince Harry celebrated their marriage with the help of a few famous friends.

Following their picturesque wedding ceremony at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel on Saturday, the newlyweds headed to the historic Frogmore House for their reception, where VIP guests including George Clooney and Serena Williams helped get the party started.

“It was a huge dance party, everyone was letting loose and had a blast,” a source tells PEOPLE of the night. “Just a fun night and not stuffy at all.”

Clooney, who co-founded the tequila brand Casamigos, showed off his bartending skills at the bash.

“George Clooney hopped behind the bar and was mixing drinks for guests,” says the source.

And while Williams didn’t have a full court available to show off her tennis skills, she channeled her competitive side with a classic drinking game.

“Serena did play beer pong,” adds the source. “She’s super old-school like that.”


During the reception, both Meghan and Harry gave touching speeches where they thanked their guests and expressed their excitement for their future together.
