With all eyes on the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, I had the pleasure of interviewing with KETK for their East Texas Live program during the wedding week. I created a bouquet in honor of Meghan Markle with some of the favorite flowers of past royal weddings, including the tradition of sprigs of Myrtle which have been in every royal bridal bouquet dating back to the wedding of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s eldest daughter, Princess Victoria. Meghan’s actual bouquet included Forget-Me-Nots (a favorite of Princess Diana’s), sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine, and astrantia as well as the sprig of myrtle.
“Myrtle symbolizes hope and love, making it a fitting addition to any bride's bouquet, royal or not.”
The bouquet I created included pink peony, scabiosa, anemonie, roses, astilbe, hydrangea, wax flower and trailing jasmine vines. I also created some of my custom floral jewelry which is a new trend for weddings. The jewelry pieces featured orchids and tiny succulents. My sweet and talented photographer friend, Noreen Nartia, of Capturing Me photography, met me at the house following my interview for this fun photo shoot. Thank you Noreen for the lovely photos!!
