Oops missed another one, Lady Davina's is great. The blue looks wonderful, what a nice refreshing style of bouquet. I liked that whole wedding.
me too! Wonder what kind of flower it is:

by looking at the individual flowers and the color, they look kind of like hydrangeas, but they aren't in clusters like hydrangeas are.
Maybe someone more botanically-minded can answer?

I wonder, are royal ladies doing their wedding bouquets like it is with the present flower fashion?
Or maybe they creating wedd-bouquets fashion?

Lady Davina's wedding bouquet.
I have seen a very vivid blue sweet pea, a flower that some brides love because of the sweet smell and paper like appearance. They, apparently, were used in bouquets, (many years ago) as a cheaper alternative to the more expensive roses because they had a lovely smell and they looked pretty.

I think you will find they have been married for quite a while (maybe five years) and they have only just had their first child - a son.

Diana de Cadaval's bouquet and Marie Cavallier's bouquets were very beautiful. I really like the tight, cluster look. I am not a fan of the cascading bouquet that so many royals seem to prefer. To me, it looks very 1980s.

I love flowers but have never been fond of all-white ones. Colored flowers look so nice against a white dress.

I agree - the different shades of white of the flowers always clashes with the white color of the gown and veil and the whole effect is just blinding - the only spot of color is the face of the bride. Too much white in too many shades of white -

RE: Mette-Marit's gown and flowers - I loved both. The gown was exquisite - very modern and very stark - clean lines - not frou-frou
it fit her like a glove.
The bouquet (?) was modern and fit the lines of the gown.
The whole outfit was fabulous.

Although Marie Cavallier's bouquet was beautifull, it didn't go well with the dress imho. The flowers were very modern and compact, her dress was very romantic and traditional.

I think you missed some news :-)
Claire and Laurent had a daughter Louise in February 2004 and twin sons, Nicolas and Aymeric in December 2005.

Anyway. Here's the website of the designer of the wedding bouquet of Mathilde (don't know if he did Claire's as well): Daniel Ost

My personal favourite is Mette-Marit's bouquet.

So many stunning wedding bouquets!
In no particular order, I like the bouquets of...
Letizia - it was soft and feminine,
Crown Princess Mary - it was unique yet classical and elegant,
Lady Tamara Grosvenor - for its delicate elegance,
Marie Chantal - it was quaint (but a little too small),
Lady Sarah Chatto - this bouquet alluded 'country charm,'
Sophie of Bavaria - simple but still lovely, and
Sabilla of Luxemberg - her bouquet was a work of art.
