“It was the most brilliant day – everything we’d hoped for,” Wright told Hello! magazine.

Wright has performed at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, the Diamond Jubilee and at the Invictus Games

But she said of singing on her own big day: “I wanted this to be a day where I didn’t have to worry about that and where I could just enjoy it.

“I did end up singing with a couple of my friends in the evening, though.”
