Given your explanation, there is nothing that anyone can do

to make the audio appear.

What you can do is lay down a music track and add it to the video or you could get your friend to stage the entire wedding again, at your expense.

Option two is probably not going to fly so you are stuck with Silent Wedding or Musical Wedding.

Is he still your friend?

Audio from other sources...

Did anyone else videotape the wedding? Was any other audio recorded during the wedding (stage microphones)? If you are (extremely) lucky, you would be able to grab the audio and sync it with your own silent movie.
