Fresh Wedding Flowers

The design team at Todich Floral Design had a lovely surprise in their inbox when they arrived at work this morning.  Our lovely bride from over a week ago, emailed us to show us how beautiful the wedding flowers still looked.  The roses were fully open and looked amazing; I can only imagine how beautiful the fragrance was in the room.  The bride was surrounded by her flowers at her beautiful home and it made us all very happy that she was so pleased with the designs and still enjoying them.  The flowers looked beautiful displayed in her different vases and matched her beautiful pink and cream cushions so well.

I think it shows the strong relationships we form at Todich Floral Design with our brides and we love to receive their feedback after the wedding.  The whole process starts with the initial bridal consultation which we keep very informal and fun.  We normally meet a bride at a time convenient for her, either on a Saturday or after work and discuss initial ideas over a glass of wine or a coffee.   One of our design team will meet and bring a selection of images prior to the consultation; we gather as much information from the bride so we can come ‘armed’ with as many ideas as possible.  The next stage is to produce a proposal which will have an initial quotation and images showing the flowers we could use, propose colours and designs.  The design team then work closely with the bride to ensure the designs are perfect and attention to detail is so important whether this matches the exact colour of ribbon to her dress or which type pins to be use.   If you are getting married in 2013 please do not hesitate to contact the design team at Todich Floral Design and arrange an initial consultation.

Here at Todich we are wrapped up warm and keeping toasty by drinking lots of hot chocolate every day.  It is all very exciting here this week for the Todich Floral Design team, with the completion of two weddings and briefs for exciting events, including one February at Saddlers Wells, London.

The first was a wedding reception in Dartmouth House, Mayfair; we worked with the bride to design the perfect table centrepieces for the reception.  It was important they worked with the elegant beauty of the room and the size of the tables.  We decided on using small fishbowls with whites and greens, the designs included beautiful white oriental lilies, white ranunculus and delicate blue muscari which are so pretty.  I would really recommend muscari if you are looking for accents of blue and this will be available until May, so perfect for Spring Weddings.

The second wedding which we have already posted images on our blog was so beautiful and the design team worked very closely with the bride to ensure her flowers worked perfectly with her dress and her original ideas.  We decided to use tones of mocha throughout her flower designs and after much deliberation we selected the roses; a big thank you to our suppliers who helped us achieve the final look by providing us with six different mocha coloured roses.  The design team are very excited about repeating this design idea of using different tones throughout wedding flowers.  It brings a softness and depth to each design and would we recommend it to any bride, maybe soft pink roses through to an accent of stronger pinks.

The team have also been working on designs for a gala event at Saddlers Wells which is being held in February.  We were briefed on the ballet and received images of the costumes to understand the colours and tone of the event.  It is important for the design team to have a real understanding on the background of an event to ensure the design works for the client.  The brief was to include vibrant reds, starkness, greys and water.  We decided on using very tall glass vases which would have elegant, vibrant red calla lilies submerged in the water, this would fit with the brief to include red and also the shape of the calla lily fits with the ballerinas costumes.  To create starkness granite stones will be added to the bottom of the vase.  The vases are also going to be lit from above so this simple but elegant design will have real impact when the guests enter the room.   We are looking to working with them on future events and will keep you updated with images.
