Many BRF weddings today concentrate on the bride and groom's facial expressions, interactions at the altar, as they say their vows. That would have been regarded as vulgar and intrusive in 1947. So there was less lingering on the bride. Plus, the film would have been shown overseas to people around the then Empire who had never visited Westminster Abbey nor were ever likely to. So showing the interiors of this magnificent historic building made a lot of sense.

Never noticed before that the bride's tiara was slightly tilted (to the left) until I saw this picture.

The tiara broke a few hours before the wedding and had to be repaired. What I notice is the gap between the highest spike and the spike next to it.

In Young Elizabeth The Making of the Queen the authoress wrote:
"The procession was led down the aisle by choirboys of the Chapel Royal and, because the choir stalls were full of wedding guests, the ninety-one singers had to scramble into the organ loft along with the radio commentators."
There had to be numerous guests if they had to sit in the choir stalls. You wonder if some of them resented being seated there.

In The Queen Mother Lady Colin Campbell wrote:
All her (Cecilia, Countess of Strathmore's) plans and requests for her daughter Lady Elizabeth's wedding would have to pass through the hands of the King and Queen. Thereafter, Cecilia liaised with the Palace, sending endless requests for additional guests to be added to her list, rightly seeking to include as many people from her world as she could. The wedding would be significantly smaller than Princess Mary's 1922 wedding had been.
