If the picture is made for the "consumption" of people attending the event (a marriage?) and local to your church, then flipping the image might cause a sense of "innatural" because you also flip the architectural features - bell tower to the left coming from the bridge, instead of to the right - and the orientation - sun coming from the opposite direction it normally comes.
