According to Lorna, the wedding was a cosmopolitan mix of guests, and so, they had to make everyone feel comfortable with the church service. Among other activities, the ceremony incorporated hymns which were sung by the band of Rivers Church and reading of verses of the Scripture. Dressed in a lace bodice gown with decorations of Swarovski crystals as well as layers of silk and tulle, the fairytale-looking princess eventually appreciated weddings the more based on the experience that she garnered in the process.
