THE TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR WEDDING ROSES

David Austin Roses are one of the most popular wedding Roses out there. For good reason! No flower can match the romantic appeal of a David Austin Wedding Rose. Blooms start as closed buds to reveal the many beautiful petals of these exquisite flowers. The blooms are known for their layers and layers of ruffled petals that make them stand out from standard Roses. Add wonderful fragrances and you create a memory that lasts forever. Parfum Flower Company told us all about the most popular wedding Roses for this year:

5. DAVID AUSTIN WEDDING ROSE ‘DARCEY’

The colour of this intriguing Rose is transformed as the bloom ages. David Austin Wedding Rose Darcey is bright magenta in the bud, opening to rich raspberry red colour, then finally developing velvety purple tones as the bloom ages.

There is a very light fruity tea scent to be discovered in the David Austin Wedding Rose Darcey.

Darcey dries beautifully if the flowers are hung upside down to air in a dark and dry place before the blooms have fully opened. Leave for about two or three weeks until they are completely dried. The dried Roses will be a sensational dark purple colour.

Shape : Rosette
Colour : Raspberry Red
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : Light fruity tea
Vase Life : 8-9 days

4. DAVID AUSTIN WEDDING ROSE ‘MIRANDA’

The David Austin Wedding Rose Miranda was part of the second generation of David Austin’s Cut Roses and remains very popular today for weddings and events. This Rose is remarkable for the giant blooms, made up of approximately 120 wavy petals, perfectly arranged to form beautiful, almost flat rosettes.

When fully open, the heart of the David Austin Wedding Rose Miranda is a pure rose pink, while the outer petals pale to the softest shade of pink.

At the bud stage, the outer petals can be seen to have a lovely streaked green effect, which adds to the garden style, creating a look reminiscent of a Parrot Tulip. These outer petals gradually turn backwards and are hidden as the blooms open.

Shape : Flat Rosette
Colour : Pure rose pink
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : Fruity
Vase Life : 7-9 days

3. DAVID AUSTIN WEDDING ROSE ‘KEIRA’

The Stunning David Austin Wedding Rose Keira has natural charm and glorious, vintage-style blooms. This unusual Rose breaks all the normal rules for the cut flower industry, because each Rose is subtly different in colour, being a beautiful blend of blush pink and cream, often with warm peachy highlights. Some blooms have an irregular flush of pink that highlights the edge of the outer petals, creating a very soft picotee effect. We think that this variation adds to the natural charm of the Rose.

This David Austin Wedding Rose Keira, perhaps more than any other, looks like it has been freshly cut from the garden. This makes it particularly effective when combined with seasonal flowers, herbs and foliage for a romantic, garden-inspired look.

Shape : Cupped Rosette
Colour : Blush pink to cream to light pink
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : Fruity
Vase Life : 7-8 days

2. DAVID AUSTIN WEDDING ROSE ‘PATIENCE’

The David Austin Wedding Rose Patience is a delightful buttermilk Rose with ruffled petals reminiscent of fine lace. The creamy yellow buds gradually open out fully to form flat, medium-sized rosettes.

There is a fresh old Rose fragrance with elements of fruit, lilac and myrrh. The fragrance is medium-strong at first, but softens as the blooms age, later developing lemony notes.
The romantic colour helps to make the David Austin Wedding Rose Patience a highly desirable wedding flower. Depending on how they are styled these versatile creamy white blooms can bring a traditional old-world character to floral designs. In more contemporary interpretations, ‘Patience’ has a natural radiance, freshness and charm. Patience is one of the seven heavenly virtues.

Shape : Flat Rosette
Colour : Buttermilk
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : fruity old rose fragrance, lilac and myrrh
Vase Life : 4-6 days

1. DAVID AUSTIN WEDDING ROSE ‘JULIET’

The David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet was the first of David Austin’s Cut Roses to be released and is sometimes known as the ‘£3 million Rose’. After over fifteen years of intensive breeding, Juliet combines the beautiful cupped rosette form of old Roses with a very contemporary colour.

The unusual and sophisticated colour of the David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet was not found in Roses of the past and is hard to find among modern Roses. Pale peach buds open to reveal deeper inner tones neatly arranged within the heart of the bloom. Beautifully cupped rosettes are held elegantly upright on strong stems. Juliet deserves its place as our most popular variety. A light fragrance reminiscent of snowdrop and daffodil.

The David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet has the lightest fragrance of our cut Roses. Despite this, it is always one of the most popular of our cut Roses for weddings, commemorations, events and special occasions.
The large, elegant blooms made Juliet utterly different from most other contemporary cut Roses. When fully open, the blooms reveal many neatly-arranged petals nestling in folds within the heart of the bloom.

Shape : Deeply Cupped Rosette
Colour : Peach
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : Snowdrop and Daffodil
Vase Life : 6-7 days
