Nelson florist Janet Boast helped to make a wedding dream come true for celebrity couple Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright.
The wedding, in May, featured in “Hello” magazine, but is only now that Janet, of Going Dutch, has been allowed to speak about the time she spent creating the perfect day for Coronation Street star Michelle.
Janet was chosen as one of the seven Interflora expert florists who worked over six days in the lead-up to the wedding.
“It was a spectacular experience working on such a high-profile wedding, and I was very proud to be a part of the team”, said Janet.
The Sunday ceremony at St Mary’s Church in Bury St Edmunds was on May 24th and made the front page of the June edition of “Hello”.
The bride told florists: “We’ve gone for a really clean theme, quite Hollywood Glamour - as white and crisp as they can be.”

A total of 22 12ft flower trees featuring lanterns lined the walkway of the chapel aisle, combining white hydrangeas, roses, delphiniums, bloom chrysanthemums, carnations and lilies.
Michelle carried a white hydrangea and double lisianthus bridal bouquet complete with diamanté and pearl pins.
“The colour scheme and choice of delicate flowers combined with green ferns and moss created a beautiful floral backdrop for the wedding”, said Janet
She and her colleagues also set the scene for the wedding breakfast and reception at Hengrave Hall where a romantic chapel archway of white hydrangeas, roses, delphiniums, Oriental lilies, carnations and fern was created and the couple’s five-tier wedding cake was decorated with white roses, white delphinium, white freesia, white lisianthus and gypsophila.
