Could a woodland theme be on the cards for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton?
A tree lined avenue and flowers such as lily of the valley, could point to a woodland theme for the royal wedding.
Lily of the valley combined with lilac blossom is a possible link to the ancient festival of Beltane for the couple.
Traditional British flowers and trees are set to transform Westminster Abbey into a woodland glade.
So is Princess Catherine going to favour a circlet of flowers instead of a royal tiara and will the wedding dress feature Celtic influence?
We already know that armfulls of fragrant blossoms and seasonal flowers will adorn Westminster Abbey and the likelihood of the lily of the valley being in Catherine’s bouquet is now quite high.
According to the Clogau website, a spokeswoman at the Palace has confirmed that The Queen has donated a family supply of Welsh gold to crown jeweller, Harry Collins, to create Catherine’s wedding band.
With flowers being brought in from the Duchy of Cornwall, the ring from Wales…could this point to a Scottish dress designer? This would then make the wedding a truly national spectacle.
Whilst Royal pageantry will play a huge part, it does seem that William and Catherine will be making the most of their special day…. we have only a few hours to find out how the pieces fit together!
