We LOVED Kate’s wedding bouquet – can’t wait to do it for one of our brides.
An amazing collection of silk flowers have just arrived at Kavelle Flowers – it is impossible to tell the difference without touching the flowers. In the attached image, there are two bouquets of fresh flowers – can you spot them?
Lily-of-the-valley – Return of happiness
Sweet William – Gallantry Hyacinth – Constancy of love
Ivy: Fidelity; marriage; wedded love; friendship; affection
Myrtle: the emblem of marriage; love.
The bouquet contains stems from a myrtle planted at Osborne House, Isle of Wight, by Queen Victoria in 1845, and a sprig from a plant grown from the myrtle used in The Queen’s wedding bouquet of 1947.
The tradition of carrying myrtle begun after Queen Victoria was given a nosegay containing myrtle by Prince Albert’s grandmother during a visit to Gotha in Germany. In the same year, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House as a family retreat, and a sprig from the posy was planted against the terrace walls, where it continues to thrive today.
The myrtle was first carried by Queen Victoria eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, when she married in 1858, and was used to signify the traditional innocence of a bride.
This sweet flowergirl basket was created using ivory, pink and mauve roses. The mauve flowers were a perfect match for the bridesmaids dresses

We used Cherry Brandy columbian roses to match the client’s corporate colours of mustard and oranges. This is quite a difficult colour to work with in terms of flowers. However the columbian roses were a perfect match and the client was thrilled
The pink tulip matched the groom’s tie for this elegant wedding held at Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont. The wedding party were all thrilled with their flowers – the groom particularly loved his pink tulip and spray rose buttonhole. I also heard rave reviews from all the guests.
