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 wedding was held at the popular venue Syon House in Brentford, Middlesex, The ceremony at Syon house is held in a magnificent hall and the reception is held at ‘The Great Conservatory’, An impressive windowed building that looks onto beautiful gardens, The Conservatory is perfect for spring wedding because of the well maintained floral grounds, the windows let in lots of natural light and is perfect for photo opportunities. Syon House is a truly stunning venue and we were thrilled to be asked to design the flowers for such a wonderful place. The brides colour schemes were of pretty pastel pinks , mint green and creams, She asked for these colours to be interpreted into her floral arrangements, ‘Natural’, and ‘Spring Garden’ were the key words for this wedding and thankfully she has chosen the perfect time of year for her favourite flowers. During a consultation they discussed that over 100 guests were being invited and that they were having over 10 tables, after showing the happy couple our tall and low table arrangements they couldn’t resist but choosing both styles for their wedding, With the mix of displays we decided to keep the designs alike with matching the same colours and flowers, The tall arrangements stood tall at the centre of the tables, lined with cascading ivy, the breath taking vibrant waterfall of pastel coloured flowers looked elegant with the glossy ivy and falling foliage. The small table arrangements were mixed with subtle

The pelamin is styled as a lounge set up and is decorated fully with flower arrangements. We were asked to design a large impressive flower display for the Pelamin and to also include candelabras, table arrangements, corsages, buttonholes, and of course the bridal bouquet for the wedding day. Our consultants designed the venue with an array of pure snow white flowers, white spirea, scented freesias, and gypsophilas, these flowers alone created a traditional and striking look, the florists decided to bring in a modern feel and add white Asiatic lilies and astilbe, this made the arrangement appear more up to date and even more impressive. The table displays were a mix of low and tall standing arrangements. Both filled with white candles and mixed with foliage; the arrangements sat in the centre of the tables on a pure white table cloth. All displays included the same flowers plus a few added peony heads and roses to make the exhibits extra special. The head table included four small white posies and were linked together with strands of ivy. For the stage we create a small mini table posy, and surrounded the chairs with 2 small and 2 large flower candelabras, stood behind the chairs we put together a large 12 foot arrangement of pure white flowers; this provided a stunning backdrop for the happy couple, and to finish we added tall birch trees in large ceramic vases.

Todich Floral Design Tweet 0 1 Posted in April Wedding Flowers, Bridal Flowers, Spring wedding flowers, Wedding Flowers, Weddings | No Comments » April 27th, 2012 Gypsophila is back in fashion; The flower that was previously recognised as the staple filler flower from the 1980-‘s has now remerged into being one of the most popular choices of flowers in wedding venues and bridal bouquets today. Gypsophila means pure of heart and innocence and is back with an impact, this dainty flowers has been used by modern florists and has created a real style statement, popular at wedding shows; this bloom is perfect for brides on a budget as they are a good value for money and brides can afford masses of it. Gypsophila has a rough texture and tiny white flower heads which creates a natural, delicate look. The appearance of gypsophila means that brides have the versatility to use the flowers to stand alone or to incorporate them into a mixed bridal bouquet. Gypsophila – This year’s latest flower trend.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API The cloud like flower is perfect for woodland styled weddings; gypsophila mixed with wild English garden flowers looks traditional and graceful in classic styled venues. These versatile blooms can look wonderful in pretty pastels colours when arranged into antique containers for a vintage fashioned feel. The head florist at Todich floral design recommends combining gypsophila with a spring themed colour scheme, a dusky palette of faded pinks, purples and whites can look stunning and traditional. We also recommend a mix and match of ceramic pots, porcelain containers and clear vases for effortless looking table displays; recycled jam-jars & vintage teacups can also look magnificent too. The florists at Todich floral design always consider every aspect of a brides wedding, we make sure that the flowers match the whole style and theme of the event; we even consider the shape of the bridal bouquet and aim to make sure that it matches the shape of the dress. Gypsophila looks chic when made into a tight round posy. Ivory illusions tulle strapless gowns look particularly stunning with this type of bouquets. Our head bridal consultant finds that we have a lot of brides wanting to achieve ‘The fairy tale’ wedding’, and are commonly inspired with arrangements including green leaves and tiny white buds; reminiscent of midsummer night’s dream, gypsophila is now always the blossom that is chosen. The British Royal Wedding on April 29th 2011 saw Prince William and Kate Middleton marry as husband and wife in front of a huge worldwide audience. Kate Middleton was the soul interest for her choice of wedding dress and flowers. She however unknowingly set off a new style craze of delicate lace dresses and traditional white flower bouquets, Her classic green and white bouquet included delicate lily of the valley (meaning return of happiness), stems from a myrtle (emblem for love and marriage) and sweet William, ivy and hyacinths.

One room was decorated with deep rich colours of reds and purples, whilst the other was decorated with deep reds and whites. Our aim was to create flower displays that coordinated with the room’s décor and yet created a romantic sultry atmosphere. Our consultants visited the hotel and researched into the Venetian masquerade theme, they created a mood board of colours which allowed us to establish ideas for the perfect style of flowers to complement a Venetian Masquerade Event. We were asked to create designs for a total of 12 grand arrangements, this of which had to be divided into two colour themes to match with the two rooms of the venue. The first room we designed magnificent displays of deep red Naomi roses, contrasting purple calla lilies and scented purple freesias, with these mixed tones of colours we fashioned the floral displays to scream vibrance and elegance and create a maximum impact throughout the whole venue. In the second room we created impressive displays of vivid purple calla lilies, snow white roses and a hint of white carnations to balance the colour of the arrangements. All the flowers were arranged with burgundy cordyline leaves, green salal and scented eucalyptus leaves. The mix of deep reds, purples and the balancing of snow white flowers looked stunning up against the backdrop the venue. The flower heads are all small but striking and packed a punch of colour at the event. The event was a success and we were very happy with the results.

Try out the HTML to PDF API mood for a bride’s big day, we are proud to say that we treat each of our happy couples with the best client service. One of the most important days of a couple’s life deserves an expert florist’s attention and planning. Attempting to blend artistry & elegance with our own innovation, We produce high quality designs on a daily basis, Our aim is to turn floral dreams into reality, our florists create fresh, innovative, contemporary arrangements which keeps bringing clients back over and over again. What should couples be aware of when selecting a florist for their big day? Nothing ties your wedding together quite like your wedding flowers, so it is vital that the florist you book is the right one for you and your style. Good florists get booked up quickly; therefore it is essential that you look for the right florist as early into your wedding plans as possible. We recommend you meet your chosen florist in person, take a note of the their website and style, Ask yourself – do they look like they are bursting with fresh ideas or that they have been stuck in a rut for the last 10 years?, If first impressions are good, ask to see the florist’s portfolio, paying particular attention to past weddings that they have worked on. Couples should also be aware that it is important for the florist to know how much that you are willing to spend; this should be discussed in the first consultation, and that the florist can then recommend designs within your price range. Know what you want, don’t feel obliged to book anyone there and then. If you need more time to make your decision, just say so. A good florist should understand how important it is to choose the right person. Lastly ask for a contract – Before you sign make sure you receive a written quotation. This should clearly list the prices that you have requested in the consultations. Once you are happy with this should you enter into a contract with them, when you have confirmed your order, you’ll probably be asked to pay a deposit, with the final balance due a few weeks before the big day. Bear in mind that if you change your mind about the flowers you want or the number of

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API arrangements you require in the run-up of the wedding day, this could affect your final bill. What are some simple things that a couple can do to ensure that their flowers are consistent with what they visualized for their wedding? It is recommended that couples should take the time to identify the central, personal theme of their wedding, as this can shape the decorative style of the whole day. For some brides, their theme may be a colour, a piece of music or era, while for others it may be jewellery or vintage. Once the bride has found her theme and costumed her wedding to this style, it can become very inspiring for the florist. Many brides are consistent with the theme throughout the wedding from the bridesmaid’s dresses down to the stationary and furnishings, putting a scrapbook together of your theme including colours and fabric samples will make this a much easier visual display for the florist to match the flowers within your wedding venue. Can wedding bouquets be customized or can only certain flowers be used in bouquets? The wonderful thing about flowers is that there are hardly restrictions; with a huge variety of colours, styles and flowers, there is a diverse range for brides all year around. Most flowers are available all year, obviously there are a few exceptions and fluctuations in prices depending on the time of year you marry, but a good florist should always find a way to work around these issues, either by stating the flowers availability in the first few consultations or by substituting to a similar alike flower The time of year can also help set your theme. For example, spring brides could go for scented pink and whites peony’s, freesias and sweet peas, whilst those having a summer wedding might decide to go for a bouquet of sunflowers, gerberas and still grass, In autumn, we would suggest zantesdeschia’s, coffee break roses and twigs in spicy vibrant colours. And in winter, look for sumptuous flowers in deeps colours such as crimson tulips and violet anemones Your bouquet can always be customised to your taste, If you are after a classical period

Try out the HTML to PDF API bouquet then It is the attention to minor details that is important in creating this style, accessorising is key, and incorporating diamantes, pearls, brooches and velvet ribbon can made your flowers stand out and be a beautiful unique design. What is the customary process for placing deposits and paying the remaining balance? At Todich floral design, you simply pay a 20% deposit to secure you wedding day with us. This way the whole day is solely devoted to you, we understand the emotions for the perfect wedding with every bride which is why we pledge to provide you with the best service possible. We arrange only your flowers and aim to make sure that the flowers are perfect for your wedding day. The remaining balance is due a month prior to the wedding, this is so that we can reserve your chosen flowers in advance, as well as order in any accessories if required from the discussed consultations. How do Asian wedding florals differ from English wedding florals? The flowers of an Asian wedding tend to predominantly be bright, vibrant colours; a mix of oranges, reds and yellows seems to be the main theme, bright and beautiful is the key. Asian brides traditionally do not hold a bouquet but instead the bride, groom and guests wear colourful garlands. The flowers of an English wedding are dependent on season. Spring and summer weddings are always most popular due to the weather and the beautiful flower varieties you can choose from at this time of year, Traditionally bouquets consist of white and one other simple colour, however now, vibrant splashes of colours such as a bouquet of sunflowers and cerise gerberas seem to be an up and coming modern trend.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API Are the flowers for the ceremony and the wedding reception two separate orders or are they typically all ordered as one package? The flowers for the wedding ceremony and reception are treated as one order as it is all written in one quote, we however do dispatch separately as we would have discussed with you in the consultations. How far in advance should couples order their wedding flowers? It is best to book your florist as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We at Todich floral design only every take one wedding a week, as it’s important for us to be able to give time and energy to each bride’s wedding flowers One year before the wedding date we recommend the happy couple compile a scrap book of ideas, this way determining a theme, colour and style of the day; this will give the florist enough inspiration to match the flowers to your style. As a rule of thumb, we recommend discussing flowers with your florist once the dress has been chosen. Considering that weddings take place on specific times and dates, how can a couple ensure that wedding flowers are delivered at the right time, for the ceremony and the reception? Keep in touch with your florist, arrange plenty of consultations, and make sure your florist has a list of emergency contact numbers. 3 days before the wedding, check that the florist had ordered all the flowers. Always make sure that all important information is in writing confirming both florist and the clients and mutual agreement. Most florists set up three hours before the ceremony, so couples must plan a suitable schedule, we recommend that couples double check with the venue that the florists will be able to set up at a pre-arranged time. Is it fairly common for couples to meet with the florist prior to their wedding? If so,

It is very common for couples to meet up with the florist; we always arrange more than one consultation with future brides so that we can develop a relationship and an understanding to exactly what you wish, the florists at Todich floral design truly believe that the most important thing about the initial consultation is the rapport. Prior to the consultations we recommend that every bride should put together a scrap book of ideas. Gathering favourite images of flower varieties from magazines and the internet is a great way for brides to find what they do and don’t like. We advise adding photographs of your chosen venue in the scrapbook as this will also help us and you determine the looks you are after. When you have chosen your wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses, build to your scrapbook, treat it like a mood board, creating pictures of your dress, adding fabric samples and different textures to create more inspiration for your big day. Your scrapbook will be your guide to your favourite colours and flowers. If like many brides; you do not have a scrapbook prepared then we at Todich Floral Design are always happy to spend time showing our portfolio of past weddings in our consultations. It is always helpful if you tell the florist as much information as possible, we would love to hear about your dreams for your big day and what you would like to achieve. Approximately how much should a couple budget for their flowers, in proportion to their entire wedding budget? Approximately 10-15%, we always ask about your budget at the very first meeting, as it’s extremely important to agree on how much we are working with before starting on the design concept. We will then try to accommodate the design agreed within that budget, and when the proposal is accepted, we stick firmly to the budget unless any further additions are requested by you. A bridal bouquet should cost anything from £45.00 upwards. A really simple bouquet shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg but, equally, a bride who wants local English flowers should be prepared to pay as much, or more, than a conventional bouquet.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API Is it true that flower prices fluctuate throughout the year? If so, by how much do these prices fluctuate? It is very true that flower prices fluctuate throughout the year. Dependant on the flower’s season they can increase rather dramatically by about 80%. Roses at valentines almost treble in price and the beautiful spring flower peony can almost half in price as the height of their season. Peony’s only lasts for 4 weeks, which makes them very difficult to get hold of for the rest of the year. Couples should try to take seasonality into account when deciding on their wedding flowers. The florists at Todich Floral Design suggest that couples pick varieties of flowers that will be at the height of their season around the date of their wedding. This way, you will find that the flowers will be particularly stunning and fresh, and your budget will stretch that little bit further We however warn that brides should be cautious of choosing their wedding date over busy public holidays; florists are very busy around Mother’s day, Valentine’s Day and Christmas, which means flower prices will always cost more at these times. What else should a couple consider when selecting a florist for their wedding day? Couples should feel confident and trust their instincts, if you feel you are on the right wavelength with your florist then this is a good start. Don’t feel pressured to spend over your budget but be open to new floral designs and ideas; Give the florist a chance to share different and even unusual designs with you. Sticking to one type of flower and one style can often limit creativity and flexibility with different styles. We find that 90% of the time, when a bride is shown a completely different arrangement, they fall in love and this is often the one they choose. Tweet 0 Posted in Interview | No Comments »

Try out the HTML to PDF API January 31st, 2012 We at Todich Floral Design love a challenge, an event where we can use all depths of our imagination to create wonderful unique floral designs. So when we had our client Hilton hotel contact us for flowers an end of year lunch event in their ballroom, we jumped at the chance. The theme was ‘casino’ and with the venue decorated to fit precisely this. Our sales consultants were ready to offer their ideas. We were asked to provide the flowers that can be incorporated in this theme and look funky, fun, and eye-catching. With the key colours black, white and red, our florists put together 9 simple floral posies, with a mix of red flowers and scented blue pine we included beautiful roses and striking gerberas into the arrangements. To be consistent with the theme of the event we then stylishly added poker dice, chips and weaved poker cards into the scented blue pine. To make the arrangements vibrant and eye-catching we also included a lime green candle into the centre of the posies. Our florists had a lot of fun creating these designs, and they looked magnificent when finished with the poker paraphernalia. The flowers definitely made an impression and most certainly finished the look of the event, we fulfilled what was requested and both florist and clients were happy with the results. We think they suited perfectly… excuse the pun! If you would like us to provide flowers for yourself or an upcoming event then please do not hesitate to get in touch, We would be happy to book a consultation with you and talk you through any ideas that you have in mind.

We love getting our florists to create beautiful new designs and coming up with new unique styles which have not been seen before. Recently we were asked to provide the flowers for Surrey County Cricket Club as the event was to celebrate the ‘End of Season Awards’. Surrey County Cricket Club – End of Season Awards

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API The event was held at the Kia Oval in Kennington, London, which was a very stylish venue of monotone colours. In-keeping with the event, we were asked to provide low table centres, tall vases and a grand candelabra for the stage. After our sales consultant visited the venue our floral designers came up with simple stylistic designs which would match the colour theme of the event. For our low table centres, we put together a selection of seasonal white flowers, open white lilies, white gerberas and black sprayed pampas grass, these combined flowers made stunning centre pieces on the tables; also the monochromatic displays juxtaposed the elegant black table cloths. Our tall vases were contained beautiful white lilies, gerberas and orchids which were elegantly spiralled around the vases and left resting on the tables. We used black vases which complimented the overall colour scheme and we were conscious to providing continuity and add elegance to the ceremony. Our candelabra arrangement was the main focal point at the venue and needed to look spectacular and eye-catching. We used a tall black vase and filled the flowers with larger gerberas and lilies. The design was contemporary and matched the other vases. We were very happy with the results and more importantly the client was impressed with the finishing touches of the venue. The awards are a richly deserved celebration of a superb season for Surry County Cricket Club and we look forward to providing more flowers for them in the future.
