The trees made me think of being in the middle of a meadow, in a park near my grandmother's apartment building back in Moscow. Overall, it brought a peaceful feeling to the occasion.

I'm not obsessed with royalty...I just think intensely about it.

For a wedding I adore the elegant beauty of floral arrangements, but I do think there needs to be a trade off -- either a majestic building or floral opulence. So I think, for the grandeur of the venue, William and Catherine were wise to keep it so simple. I recall reading (though I don't know if it were true) that they planned to use blossoming trees however they bloomed a week early. I don't know what color they would have been but trees with white blossoms stretching and/or arching above would have created a somewhat airy heavenliness to the Abbey.

I am afraid that I am one of the "minority?" I really disliked the putting of trees in Westminster Abbey which is so beautiful that it really doesn't need very much decorating. It reminds of the so often quoted (wrongly I may add) "gilding of the lily".
