With just a few weeks before tying the knot, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are putting the finishing touches on their wedding!

The couple, set to wed at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, England, on May 19, has chosen the music for their wedding service -- and it includes a full orchestra. 

St. George's Chapel's Director of Music, James Vivian, will direct the music at the occasion, which features a selection of choral groups, soloists and musicians, Kensington Palace revealed in a press release on Tuesday.

"The Choristers, Lay Clerks, Organists and I are very much looking forward to this exciting day and are pleased to be performing at the service music chosen by the couple," Vivian said. "We are also looking forward to welcoming to St. George’s musical colleagues from near and far who will be performing at this very special and joyful occasion."

In addition to the Choir of St. George’s Chapel, The Orchestra, conducted by Christopher Warren-Green and made up of musicians from from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia will perform, alongside Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas. 

Gospel group Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir will also perform, as well as State Trumpeters, Luke Bond on the organ, David Blackadder on the trumpet and 19-year-old Sheku Kanneh-Mason on the cello. 

“I’m so excited and honored to perform at Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding. I was bowled over when Ms. Markle called me to ask if I would play during the ceremony, and of course I immediately said yes," Kanneh-Mason said. "What a privilege to be able to play the cello at such a wonderful event. I can’t wait!”

While Meghan and Harry have solidified the music for their big day, ET learned on Tuesday that the Suits star has also been putting the final touches on her bridal look. The actress is expected to use Miguel Perez, Amal Clooney's go-to London hairdresser, to style her hair on her special day.
