Danielle & Stephen - Beautiful, British Lily of the Valley and much, much more!

Hurrah! Hello all, I've some really good news. Amy's back from maternity leave! With little Vi safely in Grandma's hands and the busiest wedding season yet about to start in March, it's not a moment too soon for the Campbell's team. It goes totally without saying that we've missed her happy, sunny disposition and creative imput - it's not been the same without her (not to mention the distinct lack of biccies and fondant fancies around here)!

Having spent the morning brainstorming our latest project, and whilst I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Becky and talked Landrovers (am beyond excited but more of this later!), Amy got on with bringing you inspiration in the form of this gorgeous wedding we designed for Danielle and Stephen, so I'll get on with my quotes and hand over to her now ...

So yes we are well aware of the awful weather outside but here at Campbell's HQ we are looking forward Spring to helps us banish those rainy day blues and what better way to cheer us up than to look back at a Spring wedding from April 2013.

Danielle and Stephen got married at the absolutely gorgeous, newly refurbished Catholic Cathedral here in Sheffield.  The brief was classic, stylish flowers that weren't too meadowy or wild.  Keeping it neutral with just a hint of pale blue.  Danielle went for a teardrop shaped shower style bouquet which are proving to be a very popular choice with our brides this year.  In keeping with the Campbell's flowers ethos all the Lily of the Valley was British grown, this little flower is very seasonal and has a short growing season so it was great to take advantage of its true beauty and heavenly scent at this time of year.  We've some lovely weddings booked around the same time this year, so look out it playing a starring role once again quite soon!

The bridesmaids all had little hand tied posies using the same flowers as bride with the addition of a little more soft pastel blue. For the very cute flower girl we created a tiny hoop wrapped in pale blue satin ribbon and featuring a tiny corsage of the most delicate flowers.  The stylishly simple button holes included a single white rose with eucalyptus which smelt amazing.  It's at this point we would like to acknowledge the phenomenal dresses which were all handmade by Danielle's extremely talented mum! Yes, including the Bride's gown. Truely stunning.

The photographer on the day was the creative Neil Stewart whom we worked with for our very first photo shoot here at Campbell's Flowers.  Danielle and Stephen loved the collaboration so much that they chose him to photograph their big day, we just love his wonderful rich and beautiful style.

We do hope that this has added a little dash of spring like magic to your day!  Not long now, Spring is definitely in the air.

Much love
