Exclusive, Traditional & Loving Family-focused Wedding with Gorgeous Bouquets and Wedding Flowers at the Queen Mary Undercroft

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

A stunning bride, designer wedding flowers and wedding reception flower designs were exquisitely matched for this winter wedding in London at the Queen Mary Undercroft, by the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. The classically lavish and historical setting offered a delightful backdrop to the parents and proud family of the bride and groom. The bride’s vision and our London florists’ wedding flower ideas for winter were perfectly complemented by the majestic stone columns, a complete built-in bar, large dance floor and vaulted ceilings from which hung romantically lit crystal chandeliers. Here, in an atmosphere of elegance, their beautiful ceremony was followed by dancing, fine music and a catered reception.       

We probably have to take something of a breather after such a breathtaking and gorgeous display of wedding flowers! Not to mention the outpouring of love, family pride, display after display of flower arrangements for weddings…and oh, yes, all the fun! We witnessed a lot at this bride and groom’s wedding, and here it is–or at least as much as we were able to capture!–for you to appreciate and feel inspired.  

On the day of the wedding, the main hall at Queen Mary Undercroft, located at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, was decorated with crystal, crisp white tablecloth and parchment stationery, and of course fabulous wedding centrepieces. The flower arrangements at the reception for this wedding were made from Baby’s Breath (or gypsophila) flowers, arranged with eucalyptus, and displayed simply in wine bottles placed and centred at guests’ tables.

The bridal bouquet was a dreamy sight indeed composed of sweet avalanche roses, Duchesse Nemo white peonies, White irises, Baby’s Breath and eucalyptus. Every one of the wedding flowers ideas were carefully planned and discussed beforehand. Bride and groom were able to share their wedding arrangements ideas with expert designers and London wedding florists. And each aspect, every wedding flower, bridal bouquet types and colour were purposeful in detail, including the bride’s flowers, her bridesmaid bouquets and the wedding reception flower designs.


Top tip from an expert…

“Wedding flowers can consume a large part of your wedding day budget, so it is important to select flowers that reflect the theme or colour palette of your day. The use of flowers in your wedding day also can reflect the personality of the couple, purity and happiness.

Once you have selected your colour palette, you can then decide on wedding flowers within your budget. Roses and orchids are popular for brides-to-be and come in most colours but can be expensive and colour availability would depend on your florist.” – Natalie Churchill, Only Dream Dresses


Often, couples choose wedding flowers by wedding season, and by bringing their own ideas, history, special memories and personalities into the equation, wedding flower decorations are always unique. Something extra special and touching to behold about these wedding flowers and decorations was how the couple mingled special moments in with the wedding reception flowers.

Entering the reception hall after the ceremony, wine bottles were displayed on each table, each filled with delicate sprays and sweet clusters of Baby’s Breath wedding flowers, because the groom had proposed to the bride while they were on holiday at a vineyard in France. Also, in honour of the bride’s mum, White Irises were used in both the bridal bouquet and other floral designs for the wedding reception.

Wedding Flower Centrepieces for a Summer Wedding

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Summer is classic wedding season because of the lovely weather and abundance of beautiful flowers fit for decoration. Whether it’s an upmarket affair, has a bohemian festival feel or fits a unique theme, wedding table decorations really bring this special event to life. The wedding flowers adorning tables at a wedding reception will reflect the whole theme and beauty of the wedding, so it’s an important decision to make. Here are some ideas from London wedding florists to spark the imagination – from bird cage adornments to garden looks and flowers on a budget.




Wedding Centrepiece - Floral Design by Todich Floral Design London

Charming Wedding Centrepieces

Vintage bird-cages make wonderful floral centrepieces for spring and summer weddings: a little bit quirky with a real wow-factor – just imagine beautiful flowers billowing out onto the table. You can choose traditional romantic shades of roses like cream, white and pink or go for a multi-coloured, multi-textured look of your favourite flowers. Wedding flowers could even be arranged in a nest for an Easter surprise, or one could incorporate natural elements like leaves, twigs and bark for a woodland feel.

Spring and summer wedding floral decoration is all about lightness and brightness: think yellows, blues and whites for spring and a multitude of different colours for summer. Choosing a single shade – like yellow – for floral centrepieces will create a really joyful look to the room, while adding blue or purple flowers will really make the yellow pop and add a sense of fun to wedding decorations.

Boho Wedding Decorations

Wedding flowers like daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and lily-of-the-valley are all perfect for a rustic wedding. These delightful, colourful blooms don’t need to be dressed up to make beautiful wedding flower decorations. Potted flowers can be used as place settings and make lovely floral wedding favours for the guests to take away with them. And don’t forget blossom when choosing flowers and decorations – clouds of pink and white delicate flowers will make stunning wedding floral centrepieces and can also be displayed around the venue.

As summer approaches, there’s the choice of beautiful garden flowers like stocks, sweet peas and roses – brimming with colour and charm. These blooms come in shades of purple and pink and are perfect for a romantic but rustic feel. Or more voluptuous blooms like peonies and anemones will create a richly coloured look – either as a full bouquet for wedding flower centrepieces or single blooms dotted about in mini mason jars.

Of course, for a boho wedding there’s no need for extravagant vessels to display your flowers – a vintage jug, soup tureen or mismatched glasses and bottles can make the perfect fun and pretty vases for rustic wedding flower arrangements.

Wedding Flowers on a Budget

If you’re worried about your wedding flowers cost, there’s no need to be. There are plenty of beautiful arrangements that will look beautiful without breaking the bank! Baby’s breath is a very popular and affordable choice – gathered into glass vases or jars, perhaps tied with twine or ribbon – these delicate white flowers make delightful wedding table decorations. Many wedding flowers like daffodils and tulips are also very inexpensive; choose a bountiful bouquet of single-coloured blooms as a centrepiece, or mix it up and make it multi-coloured.

Summer Wedding Flowers: Create the Natural Look for Your Summer Event

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

The natural, woodland look is perfect for summer wedding flowers. Even if the big day isn’t held outdoors, the sunlight and blue skies inspire the desire to bring the outside indoors and have decorations featuring greenery and rustic touches. Wedding bouquets are ‘undone’, centrepieces evoke the magical florist and everywhere are touches of nature to bring charm and beauty to the proceedings. Be inspired by the natural look and speak to your London wedding florist about how to tailor it to your style.

Natural Wedding Bouquets

Summer wedding bouquets for natural theme need to have the undone look, with different shapes and textures arranged together in a relaxed style. Bouquets should feel abundant and overflowing with flowers and foliage: pair full blooms like peonies and roses with tall stocks, dainty daisies and trailing foliage. Fasten with natural elements like twine or hessian. You can use a similar style for wedding buttonholes, bridal posies and floral place settings. Instead of wedding flowers, go eco-friendly and modern and choose a green wedding bouquet where foliage is the main feature. Incorporate kale flowers, berries, succulents or herbs for an unusual and charming look.

Magical Wedding Centrepieces

A glass terrarium filled with pebbles, succulents and air plants will make for an unusual floral table decoration and will be a talking point for guests. Incorporate natural elements like moss, twigs and woodland flowers to create stunning wedding centrepieces inspired by the forest. Wildflowers are low-key but beautiful options for wedding table arrangements: think chamomile daisies, cornflowers, bluebells and foxgloves. Summer wedding flowers gathered from the garden like sweet peas or English roses can be arranged in vintage vessels or simple glass vases for an elegant and natural look.

Charming Chair Decorations

Green, luscious foliage can be attached to the backs of chairs for the ceremony and reception with floral wire. Adorn with ribbons and flowers or just stay with the green and create a beautiful woodland vibe for the big day. Tie lavender to the backs of chairs to create a scented and delightful look, or tie posies of summer wedding flowers to the edge of each chair. These extra touches will really wow your guests and make the day magical and memorable for all.

Au Naturel Place Settings

Mini succulents make great on-trend place settings and also double as favours – they’re great, low maintenance plants that will brighten the bathroom or office. Napkins can be decorated with herbs like lavender or rosemary, or wildflowers and elements of the bride’s bouquet. Or instead of summer wedding flowers as place settings, write guests’ names onto natural found items like pebbles and shells. This means they’ll have a souvenir to keep to remind them of the special day.

Summer Wedding Flowers – Let There be Light!

A rustic summer wedding is best held outdoors – although this can be difficult with the unpredictable English weather! If you are lucky enough to have a warm and sunny day, create a magical look with paper lanterns, candles and fairy lights strung through trees and trailing over the chairs and tables. Candles can also be incorporated into floral wedding centrepieces and place settings.

5 Stunning Wedding Colour Trends for 2016

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

It can be tricky to come up with the perfect wedding theme for your special day, but a great place to start is with the colour scheme. Once you have this, you’ll have inspiration for your wedding flowers, decorations and bridesmaids dresses. This year, both pale and bold colours are in: think soft pinks and deep purples; mint green and bright blue. We provide six stunning wedding colour trends for 2016 to help your choose your wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets.

Rose Blush Coloured Wedding Flowers

This pale pink shade is perfect for weddings with a romantic, fairytale theme. It’s classy and understated and means creating a harmonious palette of pale pinks and peaches complemented by white. With such a classic look, the bride will wear traditional white while the bridesmaids can showcase blush and nude dresses. Wedding bouquets featuring this shade can be created with roses – either on their own or paired with green foliage or white flowers like baby’s breath or lilies. Blush coloured flowers can decorate the wedding cake and appear in decorations on chairs, wedding centrepieces and place settings.

Serene Blue Shade

Inspired by the skies of summer, this wedding colour shade is perfect for calm and spiritual summer weddings – especially if held outdoors. Wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets can feature blue hydrangeas, cornflowers, pale blue anemones and forget-me-nots. The look is laid back and pretty, and blue flowers will look beautiful with soft peach and white flowers like roses, daisies and freesias. This colour will also work well with beach or sea-themed weddings, where shells and nautical touches feature in floral arrangements and decorations.

Mint Green Wedding Bouquets

This uber-fashionable shade will make your wedding edgy and modern without compromising on prettiness and style. It’s a gorgeous shade for bridesmaid dresses, wedding invitations and even the (literally!) icing on the cake. It pairs beautiful with pink and wedding bouquets featuring flowers in green and pink will really pop against the bride’s dress. Think roses, daisies, dahlias and trailing foliage like ferns and ivy to create an ethereal look alongside this striking green/blue shade.

Burning Orange

Another hip shade for bold brides wanting to make a real statement with their wedding. It’s a great choice for an autumn do, but can work beautifully for summer weddings too. It also juxtaposes strikingly with mint green and can feature on cakes and decorations and alternating bridesmaids dresses. To create wedding flower arrangements with this look, go for chrysanthemums, gerberas and lilies. To create balance, ask your wedding florist to add silvery foliage and paler blooms to the displays and wedding bouquets.

Purple Haze

This regal colour can be interpreted as paler shades like mauve, or dark berry shades – meaning it can be either pretty and understated or striking and sumptuous. Pastel purple flowers to feature in wedding reception flowers and wedding bouquets include hydrangeas, freesias, roses and irises. Heather and lavender can be incorporated into rustic arrangements with herbs like rosemary and woodland foliage. For the darker purple, berries can be added to floral displays alongside sweet peas, hyacinths, peonies or anemones.

Boho – Wedding Table Flowers

Choose a multi-tiered Victoria sponge sprinkled with icing sugar for the base of a cake. Simple and classic, it creates the perfect tower of deliciousness to adorn with flowers! Any flowers will make wonderful decorations: from dainty daises and baby’s breath to sumptuous roses and anemones. Bright coloured berries – like strawberries, raspberries and blackberries – and mini sugar biscuits will complete the look.

What colours to choose? For a sweet and quirky look, consider pink, peach and cream blooms. For something more rich and almost royal consider deep purple and crimson roses, with purple grapes to add to the decadent look. As well as berries, succulent are very popular and make lovely additions to a wedding cake. Dashes of greenery (ivy, eucalyptus and other leaves like fragrant herbs are also ideal) create a fresh, woodland look for wedding cakes that certainly fits with a more rustic, boho theme. For wedding venues in the countryside this is the perfect choice.

Classic – Wedding Cake Table Flowers

For a classic, traditional look, it has to be roses. A traditional tiered cake cased in white icing serves as a blank canvas for the romantic floral embellishments desired. Roses in pastel shades of dusty pink, peach and white make beautiful additions to an elegant wedding cake. Sprigs of greenery can also be added, as can smaller flowers like hydrangea florets, freesias and wild flowers like daisies or forget-me-nots. Beautiful shapes and textures can also be created from different sizes and colours of roses winding down wedding-cake tiers, dotted around the cake or as the crowning glory to the design. Tumbling peach and white roses create a really show-stopping but elegant look.

Of course, in addition to flowers that adorn the cake, cake table flowers are a traditional adornment in many weddings. Adding beauty and colour to this central focus as the newly weds make the first cut, floral cake table arrangements are worth thinking about including in wedding floral design.

Individual – Cake Table Flowers

Individual cupcakes as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake has become very popular in recent years. They can be decorated in a vast array of different icing designs: from iced flowers, to lace patterns, with additional edible pearls, sparkles and jewels. Cakes can also be decorated with flowers like hydrangeas and roses, whether directly on the cakes or to add to the cake stand itself. Edible flowers are also a great choice: lavender, pansies, dahlias and marigolds can all be added to sweet treats to create a truly beautiful look.
