Hundreds of articles have been published about Amal & George Clooney’s fairytale Venetian wedding; from the exquisite Oscar de la Renta wedding dress and famous guest list, to the menu, speeches and opulent Aman Canal Grande.
Yet there has been inadequate, and at times, inaccurate references made to the Clooney’s choice of wedding flowers. Sacrilegious!
It is guaranteed a significant portion of the wedding budget was not just spent on food and wine, but flowers. So in honour of the sheer artistry, skill (and stress) involved in creating and installing wedding flowers on this scale, we are going to attempt to bring you the floral low down.
By scrutinising the pages of our trusty Woman’s Day magazine and analysing wedding pictures online, we have deduced the Clooney’s chose the following flowers to reflect their style and taste…
Amal Alamuddin’s Wedding Bouquet
Timeless and elegant, Amal’s all-white posy consisted of lisianthus accented with stephanotis. We are also going out on a limb here and suggesting a touch of hydrangea was used.
The Floral Arch
While some articles referred to an ‘archway of imported white roses’, others simply described this floral, Garden of Eden-esque backdrop as ‘an arch of white flowers’. A little bit off the mark really! Peering through our looking glass, we can not only spot a splendid display of roses, but a plethora of lisianthus, hydrangea, hanging green amaranthus, elegant amaryllis lilies, dahlia and stephanotis. The jury is still out on whether there is also a touch of snowberry or flowering hawthorn stems?
Big fat blown white roses combined with lisianthus, dahlias, hydrangea and dripping green amaranthus, fitting with the style of venue.
Classic, low-set arrangements of amaryllis lilies, roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, dahlias and chincherinchees.
Suspended beneath candelabra wall features were arrangements of Singapore orchids, dahlia (or chrysanthemum), roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, and those mysterious branches of miniature white flowers again (anyone? anyone?).
So there you have it. Amal & George Clooney wedding flowers in detail. But wait! Did we miss out a flower? Can you recognise what the mystery flowers are in the archway and wall arrangements?
