Flowers from William and Kate’s Royal Wedding


Did you get a chance to see the Royal Wedding of Will & Kate? Now called the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I thought it was a beautiful ceremony, very elegant. Kate’s dress was elegant and regal, she managed to keep the “rules” and still have a very modern and beautiful gown.

According to the royal press release, “The bouquet is a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth.” The bouquet was designed by Shane Connolly. He created the bouquet with flowers from the Royal Estate and incorporated the Language of Flowers.

The cutest little bridesmaids carried matching pretty petite bouquets and wore the sweetest floral wreaths.

The Abbey was beautifully decorated, the isle was lined with 8 – 20ft high trees, 6 were English Field Maples and the other 2 were Hormbeams. The rest of the floral bouquets were all white & cream with cherry blossoms, azaleas, magnolias, rhododendrons, euphorbias, beech, wisteria, lilac and Chinese gooseberry (actinidia).

All in all the wedding had an English Countryside feel, which was exactly what Kate wanted! It was graceful, sophisticated and I hope a beautiful start to their lives as a Royal married couple who may one day be the King & Queen of England.
