From the bridal bouquet to the venue flowers, here’s what we know about Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding ensemble.

Who is Princess Eugenie’s florist of choice?

The Queen‘s grand-daughter, Princess Eugenie, 28, has opted for an A-list florist for her bouquet designs.

It is reported that the royal bride-to-be has hired Rob Van Helden, who has also worked for the likes of Elton John and Pierce Brosnan.

The Dutch-born florist has a penchant for natural-looking arrangements, and has said in the past: “I like designs to look natural and not contrived.

“I love to work with a mass of one type of flower, as this is the way in which flowers tend to grow in the wild, and I particularly like to try to incorporate fruit, vegetables and herbs in to my work.”

There is also the white rose of York, which is the symbol to Eugenie’s family name, and English wild bluebells and forget-me-knots for a more ‘rustic’ feel.

Many will recall Sarah Ferguson, Eugenie’s mother, carry a unique “S” shaped bouquet, and it is possible that the young royal will pay tribute to the fancy design in her arrangement.
