Flower displays created by an acclaimed florist were exhibited at St Edmundsbury Cathedral during a Jubilee service.

Harald Altmaier has a long-standing relationship with the Royal Family, having supplied them numerous floral selections over the years.

He is also well-acquainted with Bury St Edmunds, and was able to combine these two personal connections for the cathedral's Jubilee event on Sunday.

Installations placed by Mr Altmaier and his team around the cathedral featured the Queen's favourite flowers.

St Edmundsbury staff, along with a team of Suffolk-based arrangers led by Sue Cockram, assisted Mr Altmaier in decorating the site.

Their work, carried out on Friday, was well-received by the cathedral's dean, Joe Hawes, and the Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk, Countess Clare of Euston.

The Rev Canon Philip Banks said: "English flowers for our Queen - we are more than excited that Harald Altmaier is willing to create this floral display for our Platinum Jubilee celebrations here in the cathedral, for all our visitors and local people to enjoy.

"As we mark this year Her Majesty's seventy years of service and loyalty, may the beauty of flowers give us thankful hearts and inspire us to be, like the Queen, people of loving care and service."
