A Lilac Summer Wedding

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

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.

The Painted Hall – June Wedding 2012

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012


 

 

 

 

 

The floristry wedding season runs from as early as March all the way to September, the busiest months being, May, June and July, We have had many brides come forward to us over the years to design their flowers and this year was no exception.
This season we were contacted by a bride who asked us to design the flowers for her wedding day, her wedding was held at ‘The Painted Hall’ in ‘The Royal Navy College’ Greenwich. A popular venue which we have recently decorated for a wedding in May 2012, we were looking forward to creating completely different designs that were unique and fitting to this bride’s style.

The painted hall is often described as the ‘Finest Dining Hall in Europe’ it is a grand room with beautiful architecture and interior, The venues purpose was originally built for prestigious
dining, and formal occasions such as weddings and events, and this is exactly how the venue is used today.

Our head consultants and florists were aware of the colours and lighting of this spectacular venue and were able to easily consult the bride as to what flowers arrangements would be perfect to suit her wedding in the venue.

This brides wedding was to a much smaller scale to the previous wedding this year, instead of the grand scale wedding that filled the whole venue, This particular wedding hired a dining area set up at the front of the hall which looked upon the surroundings and looked quaint and was a perfect size for a small wedding.

The bride’s favourite flowers were roses and she requested that these were to be incorporated into the floral designs. Her bridal bouquet was in the design of a posy and was a mix of pure white roses, calla lilies and freesias, this simple all white bouquet was then finished with white satin ribbon and decorative pins. The bridesmaid’s bouquets were created with the same flowers but of a smaller version of the bridal bouquet.

Simple, stylish and chic were the main key words to this wedding, the grooms and guests buttonholes were in keeping with the style and the theme of the wedding, they each had a white that was mixed with a small amount of decorative foliage.

The top table arrangement was the key floral feature of the painted hall, the calla lilies and roses were designed to be in the style of a breath taking flower waterfall.  The flower stems beautifully flowed down the front of the table and was very eye catching, the arrangement was mixed with palm leaves and other glossy foliage. The idea for this arrangement came from a picture from a magazine cut out that the bride bought to us during her consultations.
The venue contained 1 large top table and 4 smaller long tables, The bride and groom requested that we create 8 arrangements to complete the look of the venue, Our florists made 2 vase arrangements filled with white hydrangeas, gerberas, lilies and peonies, and 6 small arrangement filled with the same flowers, the arrangements looked classy and chic for the wedding.

Finally the couple requested 4 very large pedestals to help complete the look of the room and to also have the wow factor when entering the wedding venue. We created 2 large and 2 very large designs which matched the colours and
flowers of the other arrangements and look stunning when stood at the entrance and at the top table.

The flower arrangements created for this wedding were simple and stylish, all white flowers gave a traditional and pure look which tied in with the colours and themes of the wedding. The bride and groom were very pleased with the final look and we were thrilled to design the flowers for a beautiful wedding.

The Painted Hall Wedding – May 2012

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Todich Floral Design always enjoys getting involved in local wedding shows; the Autumn Wedding show at London Earls Court is a prestigious event which brings all the companies in the industry together to offer the best services for the happy couple’s special wedding day.

Every year we prepare our stand to show the most beautiful, creative and unique designs that our florists can offer. One of our designs was so inspiring that it caught the eye of a bride who immediately contacted us to arrange and design her flowers for her own wedding in May 2012.

The bride was getting married at St Helens church, London, the church was where she grew up and is full of fond childhood memories; the bride believed that this would be the perfect venue for her wedding day.

The wedding reception was going to be held at The Old Royal Navy College’s the ‘Painted Hall’.  The painted hall is often described as the ‘Finest Dining Hall in Europe’ it is a grand room with beautiful architecture and interiors; the remarkable décor and paintings in the room are to pay tribute to British Maritime Power. The venues purpose was originally built for prestigious
dining, and formal occasions such as weddings and events, and this is exactly how the venue is used today.
We sent our head consultant over to ‘The Painted Hall’ to view the lighting, décor and colours to ensure that our flower designs will match the interiors and theme of the wedding perfectly.

With a wedding held in the middle of spring; there are plenty of beautiful seasonal flowers for the bride and groom to choose from. The brides favourite flowers were roses and the groom loved tulips, both wished that these flowers were to be incorporated into the floral arrangements.

We believe that the bridal bouquet is one of the beautiful accessories to a brides wedding day, her stunning bouquet tied in all the colours, shades and themes of the wedding into one beautiful arrangement. Her bouquet a trailing design of fresh cream calla lilies, champagne coloured roses and cream dendrobium orchids; the design was then finished with complementary foliage and a silk ribbon.

The bridesmaid’s bouquets matched the champagne coloured dresses and the flowers were kept to a simple chic design, white roses, scented cream freesias and seasonal foliage were styled into posy shaped designs

The Church pedestal was an eye-catching and beautiful design that stood at the alter during the ceremony. The design included a selection of cream and champagne flowers that were mixed together with spring foliage. The lilies fragranced the room with a beautiful scent and the cheery gerberas looked striking in the arrangement.

Our florists created a stunning floral arch for the bride and rooms wedding day. Created with fresh ivy garlands, the foliage was scattered with white lilies and cream roses, the garland was
then stylistically tied against the arch and looked exquisite in the chapel.

‘The Painted Room’ colours consist of neutral tones with a hint of gold and bronze. The Table arrangements were created in classic fishbowl vases and included gold sprayed aspidistra leaves which lined the inside of the vases. White tulips, Roses and lilies were included in the designs and were arranged together amongst spring foliage. All 60 table centres were then evenly placed onto the tables to match the cream and gold coloured table cloths.

The designs were classic and simple yet chic, the gold décor made the arrangements stand out in the venues. The mix of champagne and cream flowers worked beautifully together and the flowers not only filled the room with beauty but fragranced it with a wonderful spring scent.
