Before tying the knot at St. George's Chapel on Friday, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank revealed details about their royal wedding flowers—and it looks like they fully embraced a fall theme.
According to the Palace, the couple hired floral designer Rob Van Helden to create the church flowers. The ceremony's floral displays included foliage and flowering branches that have were sourced locally from Windsor Great Park. They also included a combination of roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, dahlias and berries. Per the palace, the designs reflected the "rich and vibrant tones of autumn and will also include Liquid Amber trees."
"It has been the greatest privilege and honor to create the flowers for Princess Eugenie and Jack, on their wedding day," Van Helden said. "Her Royal Highness has been very involved from the start and has been instrumental in the autumnal theme. The whole floral design team and I wish Princess Eugenie and Jack our heartfelt congratulations and we hope they have a magical Wedding day."
The bridal bouquet was designed by Van Helden's sister, Patrice Van Helden Oakes, and consisted of Lily of the Valley, Stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy. It also contained sprigs of myrtle—a tradition that dates back to when Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, married in 1858.
The bridesmaids held miniature versions of this arrangement containing posies of Lily of the Valley and spray roses.
This wasn't the only fall element the couple incorporated into their big day. Their cake, which was red velvet and chocolate, also incorporated several autumn designs. It featured carefully crafted sugar flowers and foliage, including ivy, acorns, white flowers and maple. It was almost too pretty to eat—almost.
After Jack and Eugenie became husband and wife, they embarked on a royal carriage procession. They then enjoyed a reception at Windsor Castle hosted by Queen Elizabeth.
Happy wedding day, you two!
