It was an "incredible honour" to document the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's "inspiring journey of love", said Mr Lubomirski.

He said, "This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget," 

Thousands in the public that wished the couple well gathered in Windsor as Prince Harry married Meghan in St George's Chapel on Saturday afternoon.

Over 110,000 people crowded the streets of the town with roughly 67,000 train journeys made entering and exiting both of Windsor's stations on the Saturday, stated the council.

In the meantime, an average of 11 million viewers observed on ITV or BBC at any one moment.

The pure white, boat neck gown that Meghan wore was designed by the British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first ever female artistic director of the French fashion house Givenchy.

It incorporated a white silk veil that was five metre's long - which covered her face as she made her way into the chapel. It included floral, embroidered detail which represented all 53 Commonwealth countries.

It was secured in place by a diamond encrusted bandeau tiara that belonged to Queen Mary, loaned to her by her majesty the Queen.

As for the couple's private evening reception, the Duchess of Sussex changed her attire to a silk crepe halter-neck dress in lily white that was designed by Stella McCartney.

The British fashion designer, on Monday, shared an animated sketch of the gown and stated that creating it was "one of the most humbling moments of my career"

The gift to the nation that keeps on giving

In certain ways, Harry and Meghan's marriage ceremony has been a gift that keeps on giving. In addition to their direction of would-be gift-givers to a charity of their choosing, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex donated every single one of their nuptial flowers to the St. Joseph's Hospice, London, patients.

A St. Joseph's post on Facebook read, "Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous. Such a lovely gesture."

Pauline Clayton, a patient at St. Joseph's, is certainly no stranger to royal family weddings. Clayton, as a 19-year-old, now 89,  worked for Norman Hartnell, the royal dressmaker, helping to embroider the wedding dress of Queen Elizabeth II, said the BBC. Clayton worked with three other girls, earning herself around 50 hours of overtime on the dress' train alone.

She said to the BBC, "I really liked working for the Queen Mother and I helped to make many of her dresses during my 20-year career with Norman. With my royal connections it's such a lovely coincidence to be at St. Joseph's and receive these wedding flowers."

Being a cause of royal patronage, historically, the hospice dates back to its founding in 1905, with support from Princess Victoria, as well as Queen Alexandra.
