Queen of England drops in on wedding

BBC notes the Queen of England joined in on a wedding today:

The Queen dropped in on a wedding at Manchester Town Hall, while touring the city as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Along with the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen met newlyweds John and Frances Canning who had booked the venue before the royal visit was announced.

The Monarch even posed for pictures with the couple.

The Cannings, from Prestwich, decided to go ahead with their wedding despite the Jubilee events.

The meeting came as the royals attended a lunch at Manchester Town Hall, hosted by the lord mayor.

How would you feel if the Queen came to your wedding? Who would you like to see at yours?

If I were invited to join the lunch afterwards it would be great. Even better, if as Monarch she presided.. Even Better, if she gave diamonds to honor the occasions- her jubilee and my wedding...On another note, I was just REALLY happy my wife-to-be attended ours...

I thought it was a great thing to do. Not that you'd ever forget your own wedding, but the Queen's presence would insure everyone there remembered.
