I confess, I'm a bit of a celeb wedding stalker... Not so much for the dress or the like (although I certainly appreciate when a too-rare bride wears something a little different), but rather because of the bouquet, flowers, and general decor. It's a bit of running gag between M and I: I'll buy a gossip magazine featuring a wedding, and he'll quip, "You're reading it for the flowers, right?", as if it were Playboy.
London florist Shane Connolly and the Middleton’s family florist from their village, Emma Sampson, pulled off the event. The bride’s bouquet, a small, slightly cascading style, was myrtle (snipped from a bush Queen Victoria planted in 1845), lily-of-the-valley, fragrant hyacinth and sweet williams (ha!). A royal bride’s bouquet is always white, as per the tradition. I didn't know that, and made a fool of myself by announcing on Twitter that I *thought* she would be choosing all-white. #veryclever
