A Lilac Summer Wedding

Todich Floral Design loves a summer wedding; there is a vast variety of flowers available during the summer season that is perfect for weddings and events. With flowers such as hydrangeas, cornflower and delphiniums available it’s no wonder our florists love to create unique summery designs.

For a hot and hazy summertime wedding, it is always best to opt for elegant blooms in shades of pinks, purples and blues; these colours really stand out in the sunshine and create a beautiful backdrop of colour at many English Venues.

Todich Floral Design had the pleasure of designing the flowers for a wedding being held on August 20th 2012 in Battersea, London, The bride’s favourite colours were lilacs and purples and her favourite flowers were roses and orchids, it was a requirement to include these into her bridal designs.

The overall colour scheme was a fusion of purples and lilacs, the bridesmaid’s dresses were deep mauve and the bridal dress was a blend of ivory and white.
The bride has a petit frame and we found that a posy style bouquet suited her style best, we created a bouquet containing ocean song roses, ocean mikado spray roses and scented white freesias, and we then finished the design with small diamante pearls and white satin ribbon.
The bridesmaid’s bouquets were of a smaller hand-tied design and included cream roses and purple freesias and were finished off with white pearls and satin ribbon. The bridal bouquet and the bridesmaid’s bouquets looked beautiful when held next to each other.

The groom’s boutonniere was a simple elegant design that matched the bridal flowers; the floral piece was made with a lilac ocean song rose, small lilac spray roses and finished with seasonal foliage.

The reception was held at London’s Hotel Verta, a popular wedding venue which looks out onto the river Thames and is an all-around luxurious and elegant setting. The couple wished for us to decorate the room with contemporary fishbowl designs that linked to the groom’s Irish background.

Our florists created contemporary fishbowl designs that were placed on mirror plates at the centre of the tables. Shamrocks blooms sat at the bottom of the fishbowl vases whilst the dendrobium orchids swirled around the inside and over the tops of the vases, the florists finished the designs by scattering pink and cream rose petals all over the tables.

The church was in Highbury, London and our requirement was to decorate the venue with 2 grand floral plinth designs and 8 small pew end arrangements. The plinth designs stood at the front of the alter and we wanted to make the displays as eye-catching and as beautiful as possible, the plinth arrangements included white lilies, cream freesias, lilac roses, lilac carnations, cream alstroemeria and seasonal scented foliage.

The pew ends were small posy arrangements which included striking green chrysanthemums, lilac carnations, white astilbe and stems of fresh mint. The bride and groom wished to smell the mint as they walked up the aisle on their wedding day.

Overall the blend of purples, lilacs and creams really worked beautifully together, the added punch of lime green created striking eye-catching table arrangements that looked elegant and contemporary, and the use of roses kept the wedding theme traditional and stylish.
