For their magical wedding on a roof garden in Kensington this May 2016, Saleem Khalid and Maria Walsh chose pink as the colour for their special day. The colour of love and romance was perfect for floral arrangements and delightful decorative touches. Baby pink roses, peonies and carnations were showcase alongside white blooms in bouquets and table decorations. Guests were treated to a beautiful reception on the roof terrace with soft pink peonies and delphiniums to decorate tables and pink lanterns floating overhead. And the bride and groom were celebrated in a shower of rose petals to mark a truly beautiful day. Read on to find out how wedding florist Todich Floral Design created the arrangements and find inspiration for upcoming nuptials.
Baby pink bridal flowers. Fitting for the romantic, magical theme, the bride opted for a flowing bouquet featuring white and baby pink, peonies and delicate astilbe. Soft greens complemented the pastel arrangement. In harmony with the bride’s bouquet, buttonholes featured pink and white roses and astilbe, and the bridesmaids flowers were arrangements of pink and white rose and gysophilia. Gysophilia, also known as baby’s breath, is a favourite flower for spring and summer weddings.
Fairytale wedding arch. The wedding arch is a popular choice for couples holding civil ceremonies and represents the future home the bride and groom will live in. Saleem and Maria said their vows under an arch of foliage and pale pink carnations (later mirrored in the marquee decorations). The arch was made all the more beautiful by the white surroundings during the ceremony which lifted the greens and pinks of the display.
Petal confetti. The moment when the bride and groom arrive at the venue is a truly special one, and the photo opportunity is made all the more lovely by the appreciation of the guests as they throw a gesture to celebrate the new couple. Rather than rice or confetti, at this wedding the bride and groom were showered with pink and white rose petals. These were flung from the flower girls’ wicker baskets and white cones for guests.
Romantic wedding reception flowers. Set on a stunning roof garden terrace in London’s Kensington, the reception set a tone of romance and quiet splendor. Tables were decorated with pink delphiniums, willow and glittering tea lights. Guests also enjoyed a scented pink peony display arranged in low clear vases to make up beautiful domes of colour.
carnations created a fairytale look fit for a princess. Fleur de Lace provided pink lanterns to hang above guests for the evening under the marquee and pink flamingos were also on display to add an element of fun!
At the bar, a single pink peony floated ethereally in a fishbowl. And for a grand flourish, stunning pedestal flower displays were created with pink and white hydrangeas, roses, lilies and delphiniums with mixed greenery to enhance the shades.
