Discover and be inspired by the opulent allure of The Roof Gardens in Kensington. An escape from London and more urban, austere landscapes, the Gardens are an ideal wedding venue and idyllic environment to enter and appreciate the marriage of two people who love each other deeply. We at Todich Floral Design were lucky to turn our events flowers’ expertise toward the gorgeous ceremony and reception and celebration to follow for Maria and Saleem, married just this May.

What better way to start your lives together as husband and wife? Bride and groom wanted to create an ambiance that reflected the journey they were about to embark upon together—something that closely tied to the their eagerness to explore a life as one, their openness, the excitement and love they felt for each other and the possibility in what was to come. Flowers for events are a way to create that mood.
And the bridal bouquet: a profuse, flowing bouquet composed of white and baby pink roses, darling pink peonies, light pink and fuchsia Astilbe. The entire arrangement was then softened with contrasting greens and foliage for a more balanced and natural effect.
There is an art form to flowers for events. Life events like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and bar mitzvahs each require a different kind of table decoration and bouquet arrangement. Events flowers at weddings can often capture the promise of beginnings through wide, flowing and open floral designs or arrangements that combine foliage and greenery with other blossoms for a sense of expansion and growth. For some of the unique designs requested by the bride, Todich Floral Design partnered with specialised suppliers of seasonal wedding decorations and ambiance-setting visuals, such as adorable little lanterns, custom signs, and artificial flamingos.
These types of finishing touches helped create a fuller, more complete and realized backdrop for blooms in every bouquet and some of the flashier table decorations. If you want to create a sense of flow and continuity around the banquet hall, dining room, or wherever you may be hosting your wedding reception, we are happy to take the time to brainstorm, consult, and help inspire your creativity.
For Saleem and Maria’s wedding there were a couple combinations of events flowers that Todich Floral Design arranged between tall and low tables, fitting with the venue’s layout. For tall table flowers there were long, frilly and early-bloom pink delphiniums that came across beautifully, especially striking inside clear vases with contorted willow. Willow has delightfully unpredictable little branches to break up the softer straight lines of the delphinium, which our experts in events flowers then accented by perfectly hanging tea lights in holders. For the low table flowers—as to not obscure or compete with the other vases, bouquets and decorations—we opted for exquisitely scented pink peonies, wholly complementary and in a dome arrangement set inside a low, clear vase.
Surrounded by loved ones, family and close friends, the bride and groom together could not have been more delightful to behold. They stood joyously by the floral wedding arch that was exquisitely decorated with mixed green foliage and a few well-placed baby pink carnations.
Of course the beautiful bridesmaids and dapper groomsmen were perfectly matched to the happy couple. The bridesmaids’ flowers were a delicate arrangement of baby pink and white roses, with Gypsophila, or Baby’s Breath, tiny white flowers that provide a wonderful softening effect. Up close they really seem to quiver in anticipation! Groomsmen, on the other hand, with great elegance and no less extravagance, wore single white rose buttonholes.
Then, last but not least, the flower girl completed the picture—a little shy and plenty adorable as she made her way down the aisle scattering petals. To fit this ethereal, almost fey and fantastic theme at Saleem and Maria’s wedding, the flower girl’s petal basket was a woven white wicker basket, then decorated with baby pink ribbon and filled with white and pink rose petals. Rose petals were provided for guests—white cones, displayed in wicker baskets and presented for family and friends to take and enjoy, to help each beloved celebrate such a beautiful day. As they entered the wedding hall, the paper cones were waiting delicately folded and filled with white and pink roses petals for all who wished to partake.
The lavish wedding reception unfolded from within the themed gardens, an exclusive and intimate atmosphere that enhanced the magic of the bride and groom’s special day, and all of their guests were able to share. In full view was the grandeur of each pedestal. These flowers for the event consisted of flowing hydrangeas, arranged roses and lilies, delphiniums in whites and baby pinks with mixed greenery. Lavish to say the least!
Every spot, every area in this magical garden had been attended to. The post flowers, for example, provided a natural look and helped to blend and incorporate even the smallest of details into the wedding theme we had discussed. This particular design was made up of willow branches and mixed foliage. They had been carefully twisted around the Marquee poles and dotted with pink carnations. If you took a stroll in the surrounding gardens, or from the outskirts of the wedding reception walked up to the bar for a drink or cocktail, the bar flowers were simple and yet complete, with a single large blossom head pink peony. This was displayed elegantly afloat in a low glass fishbowl.
