Practice makes perfect. Ahead of Friday, October 12, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank attended their wedding rehearsal at St. George’s Chapel, where they greeted the Dean of Windsor, David Conner, as he will marry the pair in less than 24 hours.

The couple traveled to their wedding venue on Thursday night with Eugenie’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, as well as the sister of the bride, Princess Beatrice, trailing behind. Conner opened up to reporters that same day about the pairing and revealed some rare insight about the bride and groom.

“They come across as just the perfect couple,” he said (via People). “They are very natural with each other. They obviously love one another, but they also have a lot of fun together, and it’s been a real pleasure to work with them.”

The Dean of Windsor also teased that the wedding itself would be both “traditional and modern.”

Indeed, the couple—like their Windsor Castle wedding predecessors Meghan Markle and Prince Harry—will be bucking tradition in some ways while upholding other standards passed along from generation to generation within the British Royal Family.

The theme of the wedding will celebrate the season with decorative motifs of leaves, berries and more sourced from the castle grounds.

They have especially decided to shy away from tradition with their wedding cake, which was designed by a London-based baker named Sophie Cabot. The flavor profile itself is unlike the traditional fruit cake in that the couple is serving red velvet and chocolate wedding cake to their guests.
