WOLVERHAMPTON, UK: David Austin rose named in honour of Lady Gabriella Windsor’s marriage to Thomas Kingston.
David Austin Roses is delighted to introduce a new ivory wedding rose called EllaTM (Auswagsy), named in honour of Lady Gabriella’s marriage to Thomas Kingston at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, London on Saturday, May 18, 2019.
Lady Gabriella, also known as ‘Ella’ to friends and family, was delighted to include this new David Austin rose, grown at Colombia-based Alexandra Farms, within her bridal bouquet and other wedding arrangements, which were created by British floral designer, Paul Thomas.
The ‘Ella’ rose joins other varieties within David Austin’s cut rose collection, which have featured in previous royal weddings. Alexandra Farms currently grows 16 of David Austin’s most romantic fresh cut varieties at its farm.
The epitome of understated style, Ella’s creamy, ivory petals unfurl into a beautiful ruffled bloom with a central cluster of golden stamens. Her pure simplicity and fresh scent with notes of citrus and cucumber make her the perfect choice for a wedding.
“We are delighted to name our new cut rose Ella in honor of Lady Gabriella’s marriage to Thomas Kingston,” said David J C Austin, Managing Director of David Austin Roses. “Lady Gabriella’s bouquet is the first bridal bouquet to feature the new Ella rose, which is a tremendous honour for us all. We hope this will be the first of many weddings where Ella’s beauty will be admired and loved. My father would be extremely proud to see his life’s work bringing great joy to such a special and momentous occasion.”
