UK: Peonies to take centre stage at royal wedding

Flowers are always going to play a starring role in any wedding, however for the UK’s sweethearts Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the blooms have been so carefully considered they have even broken royal traditions.

By royal appointment
Rumours have it, Philippa Craddock who is the official florist for the big day was found personally by Meghan Markle through a simple Google search, stating she fell in love with her modern floral aesthetic which really complimented the two of them as a couple. Philippa is a wedding and event florist and is based locally to Kensington Palace where the couple live. As well as multitude of celebrity clients, she regularly works with The V&A Museum, Hampton Court Palace and Christian Dior.

Favourite flowers
According to ITV news, Ms Craddock has said, "I am excited and honoured to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure.” She has hinted that in the wedding bouquet we can expect to see branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, along with white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves. Peonies are reportedly Meghan’s favourite flowers.
