Rachel and Steven
So today I get to do one of my favourite tasks here at Campbell's Flowers and that's write about a real wedding! The one we are bringing you today is that of Rachel and Steven who got married this time last year at East Riddlesden Hall for the ceremony then onto Newton Grange for the reception. It was such a relaxed atmosphere full of hay bales, teepee's and bunting.
The bride and groom came and collected her flowers from us here at Campbell's HQ which is quite a popular choice with brides who are DIYing their table decorations. Rachel is a graphic designer from London, (we get lots of fab enquiries from London these days as they tend to love our style and the amount of detail that we put into everything - which is a huge compliment to us). Rachel wanted a very loose and open looking hand tied full of small delicate flowers in pinks, purples, blues and creams. As far as possible we used British grown flowers which was very important to them and so suited us down the the ground - it's whatowe love to do! The florals included Astrantia Roma, Yorkshire Lavender, Waxflower, Larkspur, Stocks, Delphinium, Gypsophelia, Aster and pink Lisianthus all finished off with a band of string.
For the bridesmaids the couple wanted something the same as the bride but a little smaller in size. Again this seems to be quite a popular choice with our brides as it ties everything together and certainly works beautifully with these gorgeous dresses.
We were asked to design the buttonholes as if they were a small bunches of flowers which we absolutely loved. What a fab idea!
All credit for the photography goes to Tom Ravenshear, the pictures are truely amazing and capture the day beautifully.
Lastly but by no means least we would love to share this Vimeo that the bride put together. It gave me goosebumps and made T cry so you have been warned.
If you have been inspired by this wedding or anything else on our blog there are plenty of ways you can get in touch , facebook, twitter, pinterest, YouTube.
