Meghan Markle And Prince Harry to marry amidst naturally bloom flowers at Windsor Castle
Everyone is waiting to know more about the Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle which is on May 19 this year. The couple has been very busy to plan their special day. And now, with the wedding so close, a new information has come to the light.
The flower arrangements for the Royal wedding will be done by a London-based floral designer Philippa Craddock.
Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen floral designer @philippacraddock to create the church flowers for their wedding💐 The displays in St George's Chapel will feature foliage from The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park, and will use seasonal plants including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves. The designs will reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which many of the plants will be drawn. The Royal Parks will also supply pollinator-friendly plants from their wildflower meadows. These plants provide a great habitat for bees and help to sustain healthy and biodiverse ecosystems. 📷PA
A special team is assigned and Philippa Craddock will lead the team which will design the flowers for the Church Service at St George’s Chapel and the reception inside of St George’s Hall. The reception will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth following their wedding ceremony.
"I am excited and honoured to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure," Craddock said in a statement released by Kensington Palace.
The flower arrangements in the wedding in St. George's Chapel will include Meghan's favorite bloom white garden roses foxgloves and peonies. Philippa is also planning to source some local branches of beech, birch, and hornbeam into her designs which will make it spectacular.
"The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun. The final designs will represent them as a couple, which I always aim to achieve in my work, with local sourcing, seasonality, and sustainability being at the forefront."
Keeping table designs low and adding height through delicate ceiling installations - creates a perfect inviting, calm and intimate atmosphere - we used shallow troughs filled with water, placed on the table with wire to support each stem and bound together folded sections of wire, secured to beams using rope - no water in the ceiling installation so this needs to be a last minute install, with the table designs being made up to a day in advance
Thank you @theofficialselfridges for allowing us to fill this part of the amazing @selfridgesfood Foodhall with so many blooms, it is breathtaking, every customer walks through with a smile ... and our team in-store, led by our brilliant Penny and Kelly, are "buzzing". And thank you Norie for creating these beautiful, large designs (forefront and foreground), both available to purchase, delivered to your door (London only) by one of our florists
The deep burgundies, aubergines, pinks and greens against the blues, warm browns and golds ... so simple and just a little bit, perfectly indulgent!
