Floral decorations

The floral decorations for the Royal Wedding on Saturday 8 June are inspired by early summer in Sweden and give an impression of a summer meadow.
The colour scheme for the decorations is light green, white and pink, using beech leaves, cow parsley, pink and white peonies, white lilacs, foxgloves, delphiniums and lilies of the valley.

The Royal Chapel

The South Gate is decorated with beech leaves, with early summer flowers such as cow parsley and peonies beneath them. A light green carpet leads from the South Gate into the Royal Chapel. The carpet covers the aisle in the chapel.

Columns of lily of the valley leaves crowned with bouquets of lily of the valley are tied to the pew ends. The windows are decorated as bed of flowers, with beech leaves, white delphiniums, pink peonies, pink foxgloves and cow parsley.

The altar is decorated with delphiniums, pink peonies, pink sweet peas and foxgloves, together with Canterbury bells and miniature beech trees. In front of the altar are silver vases containing lilies of the valley.

The outside of the South Gate is decorated with beech leaves.

The floral arrangements have been created by the Royal Court's florist Claes Carlsson. A team of some 50 florists from Sweden put the finishing touches to the decorations the evening before the wedding day.
