The Old Royal Navy College Wedding – May 2012

Todich Floral Design are always flattered to be asked to design and create the flowers for a bride and grooms special day. No two weddings are ever the same and we always treat each couple with the highest quality of service; to guarantee the up most attention to care it is our policy to only book one wedding per day; this way we can ensure that the happy couple get our full devotion and attention and that we can guarantee no mishaps.

We were contacted by a bride who asked us to design the flowers for her wedding day which was held on May 19th 2012. Held at the ‘Old Royal Navy College’ this was a spectacular venue and we were looking forward to designing the flower arrangements.

The bride and groom are not currently UK Residents, They reside in Dubai but the groom is British and wished to have the wedding in his home town of London. Our consultants contacted the bride only via Skype and email, they discussed the brides colour and flower choices and their overall colour scheme of the wedding, our team then sent images from our portfolio database so the bride and groom had visual ideas of what we were looking to achieve. Our head consultant lastly visited the venue to finalise the idea for the floral designs.

The Wedding Ceremony was held at ‘Admiral House’, A Georgian house with impressive period features, this remarkable venue is a favourite choice for many weddings and events. The ceremony house accommodated up to 50 guests and has stunning views over the river Thames. The reception was held in the ‘Painted Hall’ a room filled with white pillars and gold framings, we were certain we would successfully create flower designs to match such an outstanding venue.

The Bride and Grooms overall colour scheme was a mix of white and cranberry. (Deep red), and her favourite flower is Arabicum (Ornithogalum arabicum) and she wished to have this flower incorporated in all of her designs.

Her Bridal bouquet was a cascading teardrop shape, A mix of colours of cranberry and white, the flowers included were red calla lillies, off-white dendrobiam orchids and off-white o’hara roses, The bouquet was then tied with cranberry coloured satin ribbon and finished with baby pink pins.

The bridesmaid’s bouquets were tied in a round posy shape, and included white o’hara roses as the main flower, white
bovardia was included and we also mixed in red hypericum berries to line the white flowers. The bouquets were then finished similar to the bridal bouquet and were wrapped in cranberry satin ribbon and finished with baby pink pins.
They had 7 buttonholes which included cranberry coloured freesias and seasonal foliage; they also had 2 corsages’ which included deep red hypericum berries which these were tied together with pink freesias.
The bride and groom had a flower girl who wore a halo of flowers around her forehead; The flowers were a mix of gypsophilia and her favourite flower arabicum and matched with the rest of the theme of the wedding.
The grand stair case of the venue was dressed with a flow of white and red flowers, The banisters were dressed with o’hara white roses, white arabicum and then finished with bare grass.
