Here is a royal wedding picture we don't see much of. This group is the wedding party of Princess Margret's marriage to Anthony Armstrong-Jones, who was created Earl of Snowdon on his marriage to the princess. I don't know very much about this wedding. The princess's gown was a good one, but very simple compared to that he her sister Queen Elizabeth. Her bouquet is a smaller composite tear-drop shape. I am assuming that this bouquet was created by Longman's Ltd. of London, the same firm creating the bouquets of Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, and Sarah Ferguson. Once I read somewhere that there was stipulation that Margaret's bouquet was to have no fragrance flowers since the Earl had allergies. I don't know about this, as upon a closer look, the bouquet looks to contain freesia, which is very fragrant. If anyone knows the real story of this royal bouquet and it's content, please post a comment and set the record straight.
Royal Wedding Tidbit of the day... At the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip in 1947, the music for the procession of the bride down the aisle was "Wedding March" by Mendelssohn... very traditional!
