Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot today at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Palace, and while we're still crazy about her exquisitely simple wedding gown, we'd also like to take a moment to admire the church's stunning yet simple decor. Check it out!
Talk about a tasteful explosion of foliage! For the occasion, St. George's was transformed into a rustic, fairytale garden fit for royalty and no less.
According to Vogue, florist Philippa Craddock sourced local blooms (right from the on-ground Windsor Great Park!), to deck the venue in a series of elaborate floral creations.
Opulent green-and-white garlands of English peonies and roses laced the chapel's organ loft as well as its grandiose West and South doors.
Fun fact: Philippa's company is the supplier for the V&A, Kensington Palace, Banqueting House, and Hampton Court Palace, so be assured that all her work is sealed with a royal stamp of approval! Also, garden roses were Princess Diana’s favorite flowers and peonies are Meghan’s, so the choice of using both is way symbolic.
Truth be told, a grand, Gothic structure like St. George's may not need any additional flourish to look even more elaborate, so that's the takeaway you can cop for planning your own wedding—pick a church that's stunning on its own, and your decor can stay subdued!
