A Royal Wedding
Ask any bride to be and they will you that wedding flowers are a critical part of their wedding day. A royal wedding can be no exception! the eyes of the world will be on Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton at their April wedding in the majestic splendour of Westminster Abbey. Ever since the marriage of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert in 1840, royal wedding bouquets have included a sprig of myrtle to symbolise a happy marriage. Not surprisingly, it became the first flower to be selected by Moorcroft designer, Nicola Slaney. The late Queen Mothers lily of the valley bouquet, our present Queen Elizabeth II′s British-grown orchid bouquet and Princess Diana′s Edwardian cascade, all had myrtle woven into their floral theme.
The future royal bride is on record to say that her favourite flowers are lilies, and on the 29th April 2011, lilies will already be in season. The bride herself is unlikely to drift far from her favourite flower on what now must be the most important day of her life - a fact taken into account by Nicola when she selected the regal Lilly as her second choice of flower.
Because of Prince William and Catherine's association with Wales and of course HRH Prince Charles is the Prince of Wales and father of the groom, Nicola has selected the daffodil as the third and final bloom for A Royal Wedding.
The resulting design is a feast for the eye. Soft, shaded lilies, delicate white double-petalled Daffodils and historic myrtle are all set against an ivory background which shades from a pure creamy wedding white to a rich, and royal dark blue.
A Royal Wedding is a numbered edition and signed by the designer, which is only available to order until the 29th April 2011, so please reserve yours now to avoid disappointment.......
