The guests at the wedding of H.R.H. the Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lorne in Windsor - 21 March, 1871

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, page 206:

"Soon after the guests had assembled in St. George's Chapel, and the clergy had ranged themselves to the right and left, the organ of the Chapel seemed to start from watchfulness and rolled forth the first notes of a noble Festal March, the composition of the accomplished organist, Dr. Elvey. There is heard without, another screed of bagpipes, and the bridegroom immediately makes his appearance, accompanied by his supporters.
