Campbell's Flowers design vintage inspired, romantic, pretty flowers with a 'just picked' look. We strive to source our flowers locally and ethically and buy British wherever possible. We love to share our flowery experiences and our blog not only showcases our lovely weddings and gorgeous photo shoot inspiration, but also features heaps of DIY tutorials and all our latest work.
So today I am not only blogging a wedding from this year, it is actually the first wedding we did this year. A gorgeous wedding at one of our favourite venue's to work at, Kelham Island. Ross looked very smart in his army uniform, Katie wanted a more soft and natural look for herself which reflected in the style of her flowers.
For Katie's bridal bouquet Katie went for a round hand tied with a 'just picked' look, lots of trails and plenty of texture. T's design included white thistles, seasonal tulips, ranunculus, dusty miller, pine cones, berries, 'memory lane' roses (my favourite), freesia, cotinus, veronica, cream lisianthus, scabious seed pods, eucalyptus, brunia, white wax flower, blue thistles and greenbell.
All the bridesmaids including the super cute flower girl had smaller versions of Katie's bouquet. The buttonholes were a sprig design again with flowers from the bridal bouquet.
Katie and Ross chose adorable little crystal vases filled with little flowers sprigs for the table decorations which worked so well. I love this idea as you get the gorgeous florals and still get to see each other across the dinner table.
Today I am bringing you a wedding from a warm September day this year at Whirlowbrook Hall, a venue that is truely beautiful and well worth a visit.
Antonia and Tim wanted a very relaxed and informal day with a natural and rustic look with a vintage style. The colour pallet was whites and greens with subtle blush and champagne tones along with silver foliage.
T went to work creating an all round hand tied which had a soft look and plenty of texture. The flowers used were dahlia, gypsophila, eucalyptus, silver brunia, sencio, succulents, 'Jana' spray roses and 'Vendella' roses.
The bridesmaid had a similar design to the bride just slightly smaller. For the buttonholes the couple chose a classic focal style with a twine finish.
For me though the venue decorations were a real work of art, that urn design is absolutely stunning. The tall table decorations are proving quite a popular choice, you still get the breathtaking volume of flowers but with the vase being tall and transparent, the guests can talk to each other and see what's going on without their view being obscured.
As always it's now time to credit and share with you the super talented person behind the camera which on this occasion was Amie Parsons. Follow the link to check out more of her great work.
A couple of months ago we had a slight dusting of snow here in Sheffield and what most of us saw as a cold inconvenience Shelley saw as an opportunity to head out to the peaks and take some incredible photographs. T quickly got involved and designed a gorgeous bouquet with an asymmetric shape packed full of wintry florals. The colour pallet for the flowers was whites and silvers which complimented the surrounding scenery beautifully. T also designed a flower crown which again reflected the wild landscape. So snuggle up, sit back and enjoy these stunning shots.
Today we are bringing you the story Eirian and Gabriel. They got married last October - it was a later ceremony with with friends and family travelling from the likes of North Wales and North Spain! The emphasis was placed on the actual wedding and catching up with friends and family leaving little time for photographs. As a result, the couple contacted Sarah at Key Reflections photography to take some photographs of them at Sheffield Botanical Gardens then Sarah in turn contacted us to make a bouquet for the gorgeous bride. We love getting involved in things like this so were really excited and happy to help out and play a small part in these gorgeous photos.
T designed a a gorgeous bouquet with a purple and dusky pink colour pallet, a round design with soft edges and a meadowy feel to it.
So a couple of months back we brought you Luxe floral inspiration as part of our regular 'Ask the Experts' feature on the lovely Boho Weddings blog. Well today we are talking all about foliage. T spoke about the foliage flower trend as a guest on Kelly's blog, but here she is on our own blog to tell you all about it. I'll now pass you over to T:
Hello all. Can I start by saying that we are huge fans of the green stuff, Not only is it incredibly versatile but it's a wonderful way of 'bringing the outside in' - something which works really well with the ethos here at Campbell's HQ of creating beautiful designs which let the materials we are working with really shine. We adore all forms, colours and textures it comes in and have found our fashion forward brides are embracing foliage in favour of last year's much used, white gypsophila.
Today we are bringing you a real wedding from October last year. Kate and Rob got married at 99 Mary St which is quite and industrial venue, however with a gorgeous floaty dress and veil, a flower crown and a pretty dapper doggy in tow the day had whimsical, boho undertones.
Kate wanted plenty of texture to her flowers and wow did T deliver? Kate's bouquet was full of thistles, succulents, spray roses and seed pods. Kate's floral crown was absolutely stunning, full of large blooms which really gave Kate that classic boho look.
The couple really brought the outside in with the venue decorations, embracing seasonality and filling the area with vegetables and other seasonal blooms.
Huge thanks to Ellie Grace Photography for the stunning shots. You can just get a glimpse on the super talented Julia Jeckell in the first pic too who was responsible for Kate's beautiful hair and make up. Enjoy!
Another day, another amazing photoshoot. This time we are bringing you a wonderfully warm Autumnal shoot, which we thought was really timely as we're getting lots of enquiries for gorgeous Autumn weddings at the moment. I just love the lighting on this shoot it just really takes you away to a sunny yet cold Autumnal day, kicking up leaves and drinking hot chocolate (or is that just me?).
T designed a large bouquet and in the spirit of the shoot used some dried materials from her and Shelley's garden as well as some fresh rusty, amber coloured blooms. T also designed a gorgeous hair piece, again including fresh flowers as well as foraged materials.
Massive shout out to Jenn Edwards for the hair and make up, Kate Beaumont for the dress and of course the super talented Shelley Richmond for the photography. Click on the links to see more from these guys. Enjoy!
Today I am bringing you a wedding that I have been wanting to get up on the blog for a while but for one reason or another I just haven't got around to it. So today is the day! This wedding really shows you what we mean when we talk about 'Luxe'. This is a word we have been using quite a lot lately and you can absolutely see why it's such a popular trend from the pictures below. Amy and Ashley got married back in August last year at the Woodland Hotel Leeds.
One of the first things that Amy said to us was that she loves flowers (music to our ears!) and that she particularly liked large open blooms. The colour pallet that we had to work with was soft blushes with rich warm golds with the design of the bouquet being very wild and unstructured with plenty of foliage. T went for large bloom roses including vendella, sweet avalanche, David Austin 'Kiera' and 'Patience'. Other flowers and foliage included in the design were pale pink astilbe, lisianthus, wax flower, eucalyptus, green bell and jasmine trails.
The couple chose a simple but very beautiful bouquet of pink astilbe for their bridesmaids with a super cute floral crown for the flower girl. Buttonholes were a simple focal design with corsages for the ladies.
Again the venue flowers were the epitome of 'Luxe' with large open blooms and simple style.
So yet again I had that amazing situation where I not only get sent some amazing feedback from one of our brides but some incredible photos too. Fiona and Rob got married in October last year at Sandburn Hall in York which was such a light and airy space full of oak beams and amazing views. The large windows really helped us bring the outside in.
Fiona wanted a round compact style to her bouquet featuring a few larger blooms giving that opulent feel. T went for roses, 'Amnesia', 'Avalanche', 'Vendella' and spray roses 'Jana', white lisianthus, white dahlia, gypsophilia with no foliage.
T got to make the cutest gyp crowns for the flower girls with gyp based bouquets for them too and the older bridesmaid. Buttonholes were of a focal style and T designed some wrist corsages too for the couple to give to friends.
For venue flowers we got to use our gorgeous heart frame which, as you will see in the photos, looks amazing against the large window.
Here is what Fiona had to say about us:
"The flowers were beautiful, everybody commented on them. They were the perfect colour and went with our colour scheme/theme perfectly. Tracey also included her own ideas - something I am pleased she did - as these were ideas we had never thought of, and made the flowers look even better."
Huge thanks to Blavou for letting us use and have access to these beautiful piccies. Enjoy!
