The bride has ordered four tons of trees, including eight 6-meter high maples for recreating the atmosphere of an English garden inside the cathedral.

The trees were installed along the aisle of Westminster Abbey, and guests will have to pass beneath them to take their places. The trees was placed in pots created by Shane Connolly, the floral designer of the future princess.

According to royal sources, the idea was suggested by Shane Connelly as a way of hiding the famous arches of the cathedral.

It is estimated that the entire process has cost £ 50,000.

The rest of the cathedral will be decorated with white and beige flowers.
