Lisa and Peter - Summer Sunflower Loveliness.
Today we are bringing you a summery wedding which took place in the busiest month at Campbell's HQ so far! Lisa and Peter tied the knot at the gorgeous East Lodge Hotel in Matlock, with 10 acres of breath taking landscape it's the perfect backdrop for a super summer wedding. The theme for the wedding was light and delicate shades and as you will see, plenty of sunflowers.
I am pretty sure the groom realised he didn't need this spot of Dutch courage as soon as he saw the beautiful bride.
As mentioned before, Sunflowers were to feature quite strongly in the brides bouquet which we absolutely loved working with. Lisa didn't want a large bouquet which to me seemed a bit tricky as sunflowers tend to be on the larger side, but this didn't phase T and Mel (which is why they're the florists and I'm not)! The bouquet also included delicate flowers and foliage such at stocks, eucalyptus, delphinium and astilbe. So as you can see from the flowers list the bouquet was kept stylish and simple.
For the bridesmaids the couple decided to keep the theme going throughout and chose a smaller sunflower bouquet with just a little greenery and a more petit posy for the younger flower girl.
I just love the sunflower button holes. They really contrast against the navy blue suits and were a great choice.
Ok so this may be a little self indulgent but I had to include this picture of the bride and her son. Having just had a baby I totally understand how you have to do most things with a little person on your hip, even your wedding make up apparently. I am sure all you mums out there will totally relate to this as I have.
As you can see this blog is pretty image rich as it was so hard to choose which pictures to use which brings me to the photographer. Full credit for the images goes too Marcus Rose Photography, follow the link for a better look the amazing photography. They were super lovely to work with and incredibly helpful too when it came to sharing their lovely work. Our thanks to Rosie sorting everything out for us.
We couldn't resist finishing on this photograph which we think captures the bride perfectly.
