Royal Wedding Bouquet Catherine and William

Kate's royal wedding bouquet lilyof the valley; sweet william hyacinth

Kate’s (aka Catherine) royal wedding bouquet was a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth. The bouquet draws on the traditions of flowers of significance for the Royal Family, the Middleton family and the Language of Flowers.
The flowers’ meanings in the bouquet are:
 
 
 

 

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.

Cherry Brandy Roses Table arrangement

Table Centre of Cherry Brandy columbian roses

Cherry Brandy columbian wedding roses

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

Pink tulip bouquet

Bridal bouquet in pink tulips

Elegant pink tulip wedding bouquet

 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.

Rob Reed from Lake Macquarie Photography www.lakemacquariephotography.com.au was the photographer for the day – I have had a peek preview and the photos look fabulous – I can thoroughly recommend him if you are looking for a great photographer at a reasonable price.
