Kelly & Matthew - The Botanical Gardens, Beautiful Flower Girls & the family hound!

Hello all

It's been a while since we've featured a wedding from one of our lovely Campbell's couples and so I'm really delighted to bring you this pretty, pretty wedding featuring Kelly & Matthew who were married at the end of May in my favourite place in Sheffield, The Botanical Gardens.

When I met Kelly she was really keen on using delicate, seasonal blooms in a really simple, stylish colour palette of pure white. Her vision was of a day full of 1930's glamour - classic, vintage and full of natural blooms with just a little greenery. In a nutshell - romantic, understated and elegant.

We decided on a hand tied, posy-style bouquet with a soft, 'just picked' look - not too large as Kelly is really slim and her gown (wait 'til you see the photos later) was stunningly simple with a wonderful back detail.  We decided on lily of the valley - just because it is so special and only available for such a short time and smells absolutely divine, white stocks (again for scent), green bell, white peonies and white gypsophila.  I also suggested finishing the stems with a band of pearls.  Kelly was so delighted with this idea during out consultation that she went all goosey and excited!

As the reception was to be held at the wonderfully historic Cutlers Hall, Kelly decided to collect little antique and vintage glass bottles and tiny vases which we filled with gorgeous pure white blooms such a white lilac, stocks, gypsophila, white peonies etc - the collective scent was just heavenly!

Here are a few shots I took ...

Buttonholes all ready to go ...

Corsages for the Mums, complete with magnets

The cutest little gyp bunches and floral crowns for the little flower girls - Kelly measured them for me first to make sure they fitted just right on the day!

At the weekend I was lucky enough to meet the very lovely Sarah of Key Reflections Photography who was Kelly and Matthew's photographer on the day and she's kindly sent me lots of gorgeous pics of the day - you can see for yourself how gorgeous everything was ...

Wow! How lovely, just beautiful ... and that dress!

I hope you've loved reading all about Kelly & Matthew's day and that together we've given you some inspiration for your special day too. 

So, what kind of florals suit you and your personality?  Stylish simplicity? Muted soft tones?  Or muti-coloured brights?  You can be sure whatever you love, we'll love it too!

We've added some of the lovely photos our brides have sent us  and updated our website with a few of this year's beautiful weddings.  Pop over to our Wedding flowers which is packed full of flowery inspiration.

Right, I'm off to create lots of pretties for this weekend's wedding fair Event with a Difference ... exciting!
