Urban Chic - Paul & Sarah's June Sheffield City Centre Wedding

Hello all!

So this is my first day back at work after being away for a couple of weeks on a lovely family holiday to Cornwall.  Now the majority of people might feel a little down on their first day back but not me, I get to come back to these stunning photographs in my inbox.

The flowers included in the brides bouquet were scabious seed pods, lavender, veronica, celosia, astrantia, peonies, 'Vendella' roses, 'Memory Lane' roses, wax flower, astilbe, anastasia chrysanthemum, jana spray roses, stachys, antirrhinum, lisianthus and eucalyptus.

As well as the brides bouquet, T and Mel got to put together some gorgeous hair flowers for the bride and bridesmaids.  But they also designed one of my favourite things that Campbell's do, a wand!! And as Sarah said, a beautiful addition for such a pretty little princess. I just adore the colours too - muted, dusky lilacs, with sages, champagnes, raspberries and a little pop of magenta for lovely brightness to set off against those soft tone, which worked really beautifully with her lovely bright bridesmaid's dress.

In the e-mail that Sarah sent us the other day, she had some very kind words to say about us which left us just brimming with pride and feeling extremely lucky that we get to work with such lovely people.  Here is what she had to say " We had the most amazing wedding day.  The moment it started to become reality was when Mel arrived with the most beautiful flowers I had ever seen in my life!  I could not take my eyes off them.  The colours and textures surpassed my expectations.  They looked so fresh and delicate, and yet so striking.  They travelled all the way to North Norfolk with me on our honeymoon and were placed in our bedroom in our safari style lodge by the coast.  I loved waking up to them every morning and remembering our special day.  Frances adored her wand, such a special touch for a little princess."

A massive thanks to Ruth Atkinson Photography for the brilliant images.

Out on the Wiley Windy Moors Inspiration Shoot - Behind the Scenes

Hello lovely people

Today we bring you a bit of a collaborative blog post with Amy & I both doing our bit to keep you topped up with lots of fresh ideas and bags of inspiration for your big day.

One very windy day we got together with a whole heap of wonderful industry friends and put together a pretty shoot which was all a bit Wuthering Heights inspired (I'm just a little bit in love with Kate Bush) but solely featured British grown flowers for this year's British Flower Week. Team Campbell's worked their socks off to create this prettiness for you and I'm happy to say the effort paid off as today we're featuring on the really lovely blog Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.  Click on this link to be transported to see our pretty Kathy, our brooding Heathcliffe, our delicate Isabella, a flower arch, floral jewellery, a floral chandelier, a table setting amidst the heather and ribbons galore!

So those are the 'real' photos, but what of the 'behind the scenes'?  Well here we all are in our uncut glory, beautifully captured by our good friend Sarah Brabbin ... enjoy!




















Not sure how Lily whippet got in on the act, but clearly she did!

So, I'll hand you over to our lovely Amy who has a little more to add to this post.   Thanks for reading. Much love

Hi all!!

So this was my first ever experience of being on a shoot and it was exactly how I expected, lots of standing around, freezing cold and generally just not as glam as you would think.  However, I had so much fun and it was great to involved in something so exciting and work with some fantastic, inspiring people.  Before the shoot I decided that I would like to make a 'behind the scenes' video for you all to give you an exclusive look at all the hard work that goes into taking all these amazing shots and well, I thought it would be a good laugh, and it was!

Here it is, just follow this link to our YouTube channel and watch away.  Make sure you let me know what you think in the comments.

Speak soon

Pretty Flamingo - Perfect Sixties Pastel Inspiration

Hello all

Hope you're all enjoying the lovely change in weather, I'm writing this to you on a beautiful sunny day, filling in for our Amy who is back later this week from her happy hols. We all can't wait to have her back!

So I thought I'd share a fab shoot we got involved with just recently and which we're really proud to say has featured on Johanna Payton's uber stylish blog The Fashion Detective - pop over for some wonderful sixties inspiration, it's beyond fab!

As regular readers will know, we just love collaborating with new and old friends and were delighted when the very lovely Julia Jeckell got in touch to say she was working with fab photographer Ellie Grace on putting together a gorgeous pastel inspired shoot featuring lots of sixties styling and would I be interested in designing a bouquet?  Naturally I jumped at the chance and I think the results speak for themselves!

Grab a cuppa and a biccy and enjoy ....
