Varieties like Juliet and Patience are still as popular as ever but the roots of these beauties date all the way back to the 1940s - when David Austin was given a copy of George Bunyard's book on old roses, which gave him the idea of crossing old roses with modern roses.
David Austin went into business as a nurseryman in the early 1960s, at a time the old roses - such as gallica and damask - had all but died out. His objective was to create new roses in the style of old roses by combining the unique charm and fragrance of old roses with the wide color range and repeat-flowering qualities of modern roses.
In the early 1990s, David began breeding cut roses, focusing on roses with the shapes and fragrances of old garden roses and the vase life of commercial cut varieties. The Wedding & Event Roses in this collection are the result of his work and his legacy continues after his passing in 2018 through his son, David J. C. Austin, and grandson, Richard, who are at the helm of the business.

These days there are sixteen varieties to choose from in the David Austin wedding roses collection, including stunning ivory varieties such as Purity and Leonora, but also the highly sought-after blush tones that you can find in Keira and Eugenie.
