Loving Kindness 121/10 vase has been designed by Kerry Goodwin to commemorate the Queen‚Äôs 70th wedding anniversary this November.
William Neil McKie, the Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey, was the director of music for the royal wedding, and he wrote a piece of sacred choral music for the occasion, ‚ÄòWe wait for thy loving kindness, O God‚Äô. Details such as these remain as iconic anecdotes of the royal wedding seventy years ago. This song in particular provided inspiration for the name of this special design. Yet, it is often flowers which speak to Moorcroft designers and this occasion was no different.
Inspired by the Queen‚Äôs wedding bouquet, made up of three kinds of British-grown orchids: cattleya, odontoglossum and cypripedium - to which was added a sprig of myrtle from a bush at Osborne House, Queen Victoria's house on the Isle of Wight, Kerry put pen to paper. She selected those fresh white orchids which we know are the Queen‚Äôs favourites and coupled them with springs of myrtle. The result is a wonderfully romantic and pure reminder of that momentous and special day seventy years ago at Westminster Abbey.
