Celebrity Celebrations - Simon was responsible for the flowers at Elton John's extravagent 50th birthday party over ten years ago as well as travelling to Ireland to provide flowers at the wedding of David and Victoria Beckham.

Royal Engagements - He has been entrusted with Royal occaisions for many years including the Queen's Golden Jubilee and the more recent marriage of William's Father Prince Charles to Camilla Parker Bowles.

Palace sources have also revealed that arrangements will be left on display after the ceremony in Westminster Abbey so that the public can view and enjoy them.

The exact details of the bouquet are still being kept tightly under wraps until the big day itself but it seems we were right with our guesses of white roses and lily of the Valley!
