A Vintage Pink Wedding with an Industrial Twist

At last the day has come! At Todich we can work with a bride for sometimes over a year to ensure her flowers are perfect for the wedding day. The Head Designer, Laura Fisher worked with a lovely bride who was looking to incorporate her favourite flower, ‘Memory Lane’ roses.

IMG_0417_resizeAt the initial consultation which is always about ‘fact finding’ and really understanding the brides likes and dislikes. The team talked to the bride about her dress, which was going to be halter necked with some beading. If the dress has a lot of detail, we tend to advise the bride to go for a more simple domed design rather than a more elabrote shower design. It is important the flowers compliment the dress rather than being the dominating factor. We decided on a domed shaped bouquet which would focus on the ‘Memory Lane’ roses as the main flower with accents of whites from seasonal flowers. The bride was keen to have ribbon which fitted with the ivory of her dress and delicate pearl pins.

IMG_0426_resizeThe bridesmaids wore beautiful pink long dresses and the team suggested using the same dusty pink rose for the bouquets, but this time bringing in accents of pinks with delicate seasonal flowers. These designs would be tied with pink ribbon to match the dresses. The little flowers girls who were ten and four would have the same designs but on a smaller scale. Another option which we discussed for the flower girls was to have a more relaxed posy style, which is less sophisticated and has a more relaxed feel, but the bride finally decided on the dome style to match the other designs.

IMG_0476_resizeThe church was very large and we finally decided on pew ends which would be small posies of seasonal flowers finished with elegant satin ribbon, which would hang down from the flowers. Alter arrangements were also included to create impact at the front of the church.

The reception was at Rum and Sugar, a beautiful room in Museum of London; the room had a industrial feel with exposed brick and industrial looking pipe work. The bride wanted a relaxed and fun feel to her table arrangements and after discussing this with the team, they came up with the perfect solution. It was felt glass vases would be too formal and Head Designer, Laura Fisher suggested using galvanised containers which would work really well with the soft pink of the roses. To add some softness to the containers, the team suggested bringing in the ivory satin ribbon which matched the bride’s dress, this was tied around the top of the container.

 

Brides Comments

'I have wanted to email you to say thank you for making the flowers at my wedding so perfect! I was overwhelmed with how they looked when I saw them on the day, they were exactly how I hoped they would be (actually better) – the colours looked completely perfect, as you said they would. It made me so happy on the day looking at them all the time, whether that be my bouquet, the buttonholes, the pew ends, or the table arrangements – they were just beautiful. I am so glad that we went with Todich Floral Design to do our flowers, as you translated my colour scheme and rough theme into the most beautiful flowers that really complemented the whole day – THANK YOU!!!'
