Waitrose launched a wedding bouquet ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding this weekend.
With the ceremony taking place on Saturday, May 19, Waitrose designed a special bouquet with selected white flowers to mark the big occasion.
The supermarket, which is also well known for its gorgeous seasonal flowers via Waitrose Florist, designed the bouquet with Meghan’s favorite flower in mind – peonies.
The bouquet includes white peonies, Avalanche roses – which are loved by florists for their large, blown flower heads – as well as fragrant white stems, freesias in bridal white, and sprigs of American salal shrub, all beautifully finished with foliage. of delicately vaporous bells.
London florist Philippa Craddock designs the royal wedding flower arrangements, featuring seasonal plant arrangements including beech, birch and hornbeam branches, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.
But while the details of Meghan’s bouquet are under wraps, it should be predominantly white and should include a sprig of myrtle, which is in keeping with royal tradition dating back to Queen Victoria.
Nicola Wall, flower buyer at Waitrose, said: “Obviously the bouquet is shrouded in the utmost secrecy, but we’ve picked up a few snippets here and there to try and be on the right track. While the fever from the royal wedding going up, we are delighted to have this wonderful bouquet for our guests to enjoy at home or, for those attending royal weddings, the Waitrose Wedding Bouquet will be a perfect gift for the host.
You can buy the Waitrose Wedding Bouquet in stores now for £ 20.
