Pippa Middleton Just Checked Out the Progress on Her Wedding Flowers
Find out who will be designing Pippa's big-day blooms, plus get the latest scoop on her wedding dress and venue.
The countdown is on! Pippa Middleton and fiancé James Matthews will tie the knot in less than two weeks and preparations are well underway for their May 20, 2017, celebration. The latest task Middleton has crossed off her pre-wedding to-do list? Checking in on her ceremony and reception flowers, of course.
On Saturday morning, London-based florist Lavender Green was spotted delivering a box of blooms to Middleton's apartment, the Daily Mail reports. Fans of Duchess Kate's younger sister are speculating that the high-end floral designers will provide the big-day blooms for the couple's nuptials. Having previously worked with high-profile clients and decorated events at the Tower of London, Royal Academy and weddings at Someset House and Coworth Park, Lavender Green is certainly equipped to design the floral arrangements for Middleton's day.
Other wedding-related whispers? The Daily Mail also reports that Giles Deacon will be designing Middleton's wedding dress, as he was recently seen arriving at her apartment with garment bags. But he won't be designing the veil. Stephen Jones appears to be the front-runner for her bridal headpiece. The milliner was spotted at Middleton's home with an "enormous bag."
One thing we do know for sure is that the couple's ceremony venue, St. Mark's Church at Englefield Estate, just underwent a few renovations. The main entrance of the estate was closed to visitors and draped with tarps and scaffolding until today, citing repairs happening until May 8th. In photos snapped this morning, the stone façade and iron gates look much cleaner and brighter, just in time for the notable couple's wedding.
There may be plenty of new details to obsess over in the meantime, but we're still anxiously waiting for Middleton's walk down the aisle, just 12 days away.
