Moss, 37 -- who is now honeymooning on a $16 million superyacht -- wanted to get married without the drone of jets from the Royal Air Force's (RAF) Brize Norton base overhead.
She asked chiefs at the base near her Little Faringdon, central England, home to divert or postpone their flights -- but was politely refused.
A military source said, "RAF Brize Norton is a fully operational wartime air base. Flights from the base carry troops and vital equipment directly to Afghanistan."
The source added, "These flights are absolutely crucial. The idea that the top military brass would put these flights on hold or change their routes just to give a celeb some peace on their wedding day is absolutely inconceivable. Kate should consider herself lucky she just got a polite refusal."
Mom-of-one Moss' home -- where her three-day reception celebration was held -- is around five miles from the air base. The church where she wed The Kills rocker Jamie Hince, 42, on Friday is also close by.
