The Royal Parks’ duties, meanwhile, were as diverse as providing plant provision.
Elsewhere, temporary access solutions company Live, deployed over 19,000m of barriers and fencing. The company was tasked with strengthening safety and security.
Live, a specialist division of A-Plant, provided over 8,000 GT Lightweight Barriers and 525m of Heras fencing across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
The company’s crowd control system was installed through Windsor town and The Long Walk, leading to Windsor Castle, protecting the wedding party and ensuring the procession route remained unobstructed.
To keep members of the public safe from overcrowding, pedestrian barriers were also deployed to Windsor and Eton’s train stations to create queuing systems for people arriving into and exiting the town.
Elsewhere, more niche supplier names were also discovered. Kensington Palace confirmed that the wedding invites were created by Barnard & Westwood.Embed from Getty Images

Elsewhere, Claire Ptak, owner of London-based bakery Violet Cakes, created the royal wedding cake and London-based florist Philippa Craddock designed the wedding flowers, which followed a ‘natural wildflower’ theme.Embed from Getty Images
