The mainly white wedding bouquet of Princess Eugenie of York consisted of Lily of the Valley, Stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy. And of course there were sprigs of myrtle from Osbourne House included, a royal tradition that has been kept for more than 150 years. The first bride to do so was Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter Princess Victoria in 1858.
For the floral displays in and around St George’s Chapel however Princess Eugenie and her groom Jack Brooksbank choose an autumnal theme. The amazing floral displays were created using foliage and flowering branches, sourced locally from Windsor Great Park, combined with roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, dahlias and berries. They also included Liquid Amber trees.
Both the wedding bouquet and the floral display were the work of floral designer Rob van Helden, originally from the Netherlands.
Two of my royalty friends were so lucky to be among the people directly outside the chapel and have given me permission to use their photos for my blog. Thanks Ken and Sue!
