Blooming Royal Bouquets…

Posted by Hannah on 18/05/2018 in Uncategorized

This weekend sees Prince Harry marry Miss Megan Markle, watched by thousands upon thousands of people across the world.

Whilst we have two of our own weddings to concentrate on this weekend, we, like everyone else will be watching snippets throughout the day.

There are so many questions on our lips, what will Megan’s dress be like, what will the bridesmaids be wearing. For us at Hannah Burnett Florist, we’re more interested in what bouquet the American born Princess will carry!

Our vote is on white peonies, and we haven’t got much of a wait to find out!

For now, we’re looking back on some of the Royal Wedding bouquets over the last 60 years, starting with Her Majesty The Queen in 1947…..

Her Majesty carried a gorgeous cascading bouquet of orchids,¬†chosen from five designs submitted by Martin Longman, made up of three kinds of British-grown orchids: cattleya, odontoglossum and cypripedium – to which was added a sprig of myrtle from a bush at Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s house on the Isle of Wight.

Diana, Princess of Wales also carried a cascading bouquet, a popular royal choice. Once again this much loved Bride carried orchids, this time accompanied by scented stephanotis.

 

 

The Nations favourite Bride, Kate Middleton, carried a stunning bouquet of hyacinths and lily of the valley, carrying on the tradition of including a sprig of myrtle.

Camilla, Duchess of Wales, broke tradition and carried a wired posy, consisting of delicate primroses and lily of the valley.

These fabulous Brides have each chosen their flowers based on their individual style, but the thing we love the most about them all is they are classic and elegant.

 

Whatever Megan carries tomorrow, we are sure it will set a new trend, and be perfect for our new favourite Bride…

 

Enjoy the Royal Wedding!
