Shane Connolly Flowers
This west London-based florist most famously put together the flowers for The Royal Wedding in 2011. Shane Connolly holds a Royal Warrant awarded to him by the Prince of Wales in 2006, marking him as the official supplier of flowers for royal events. He runs Shane Connolly Flowers with business partner Jamie Marlar from whom you can commission your very own floral masterpiece. Shane first started out with an apprenticeship at London-based florist's Pulbrook and Gould, where he stayed for two years before starting up his own business in 1989. For Kate and William's wedding he selected flowers from Windsor Great Park including blossoms, azaleas, rhododendron, euphorbias, beech, wisteria and lilac. But most striking of all were the eight 20ft-high trees dominated the nave of Westminster Abbey: six English Field Maple, which suggests humility, and two Hornbeam trees - linked to resilience - all growing in planters made by craftsmen at Highgrove, the Prince of Wales's residence in Gloucestershire. For the simple bridal bouquet he used seasonal, local, UK grown flowers: lily of the valley, associated with trustworthiness and meaning 'return of happiness', sweet William (how appropriate) meaning gallantry, and hyacinth, to represent constancy of love.
