Princess Eugenie Wedding: Here's how the second royal wedding of the year may look like
Information regarding Princess Eugenie's wedding has been suceesfully kept under wraps but there's new detail on how the chapel will look on the day
With just over a month left for Princess Eugenie wedding, and with most of the information kept under wraps, new details have emerged regarding how the chapel will look on the big day.
The 28-year-old princess will marry her long-term partner, tequila ambassador Jack Brooksbank on October 12. So far only a few details of the second royal wedding of the year have been revealed, including the location, some of the bridal party and the nationality of the wedding dress designer. The wedding will take place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, the same location as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s, and Eugenie will also don a British designer, just like Meghan Markle.
Now experts have revealed what flowers Eugenie will have at her wedding. Express.co.uk reports that FlorismartUK’s expert florist, Katie-Jane Hermes said: “Looking back at previous recent Royal weddings and the style of florals they have been carrying, it can be expected that Princess Eugenie will carry a petite bouquet with delicate symbolic flowers."
“If her mother’s flowers are anything to go by the symbolism will be huge!” she added.
Going on to discuss Sarah Ferguson’s choice of flowers on her big day, Kate-Jane continued: “To her marriage to the Duke of York, Sarah carried Gardenias, Roses, Lily of the valley, Lilies and Myrtle. Gardenias are an expression of secret love and denotes sincerity. Lily of the valley which has been a staple of previous Royal bouquets (including Meghan Markle’s) means a return to happiness. The Lilies represent purity while the rose is a long-held symbol for love.”
Sarah Ferguson aside, the expert florist thinks that Eugenie will use her wedding flowers to express her own sense of style and personality. "My guess is a ‘hand tied," she said.
“In keeping with their plastic-free wedding plans, anything else would be out of place. A wired design would involve plastic tapes. For the flowers, I imagine it will derive from a sprig of tradition – myrtle, dating back to Queen Victoria."
“Then, similarly to her Mother, Gardenia, Roses and Lily Of the Valley. Mindful of her eco, sustainable wedding choices, I imagine it will be influenced by British flowers, so we could see Freesias as these will be seasonally available in the UK at that time of the wedding."
“To loosen the design up a little, offering a more rustic touch, she could well include British grown herbs too. This would not only add a touch of foliage and height to the bouquet but also a beautiful scent,” she added.
To match her British wedding flowers, Eugenie revealed earlier this month that she has a British designer creating her wedding dress.
Appearing on the cover of British Vogue, Eugenie finally revealed some details of her wedding, including the fact that she had found her wedding dress.
Talking to the publication, she said: “[The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.”
While she wouldn’t reveal the designer, Eugenie has been spotted wearing a lot of Erdem and Osman as of late, even wearing an Erdem floral dress in her engagement photos.
