While the couple, who are from the Duchess' hometown, didn't have the best seats in the house, Martin recalled the special moment when Kate first arrived to London's Westminster Abbey in her ivory Alexander McQueen gown.

"Everything outside just roared," he shared with PEOPLE. "You could hear it all outside to begin with as she approached. It was like a wave of sound getting louder and louder as she got closer to the Abbey. When the trumpets started inside to announce that she'd arrived, it's a wonder the roof didn't lift off!"

"When Kate came in — what a wonderful sight. She looked incredible," he gushed. "And she hasn't changed a bit in 10 years."

Sue noted that they "couldn't actually see William and Kate during the ceremony, but we could hear the service on the loudspeakers, and we saw Kate and William walk back down the aisle as a married couple."

After the iconic nuptials, which had a guest list of 1,900 people, the pair returned home to find that their small town was as alive as ever, with people dancing outside and pouring drinks after they watched the wedding on a screen outside.

Overall, the wedding racked up 72 millions streams worldwide on YouTube.

"There was music playing and they were all having drinks to celebrate, but I crept off after a little while and went home for a rest," revealed Sue.

The pair's personal stories come on the heels of William and Kate's 10th anniversary, which is on April 29.

And though a decade may have passed, for Sue, it feels like she was at the church yesterday.

"I've still got my outfit and my fascinator," she confessed. "I can't see that I'll ever throw them away because it was such a special day. It was a total one-off."
