Sunny Sydney to Wintery Wild Derbyshire - Our Very Own Sophie's Wedding Anniversary!

Hi all,

I spend so much time writing blogs about our brides so this time we decided to mix it up a bit and bring you the wedding of one of our very own Team Campbell's members.  Our PR guru Sophie got married to Matt in Australia on the 31st October 2012, not because they love Halloween but because it was their 9 year anniversary of getting together at Uni.

Sophie and Matt made the big decision to elope and get married in Australia, well they were going there for a holiday so why not?  They tied the knot with just two close friends present on a wonderfully warm day at an outdoor ceremony by Sydney Harbour and opposite The Opera House. Here is a DIY piccie of their day, a bit blury but you get the idea.

Hollywood Glamour with a Modern Twist - Elizabeth and Rory's September Wedding

Hi all!

Today we are bringing you a wedding from September this year which was a great one for us because not only were the designs gorgeous but we got to work with one of our industry friends Sarah (The Brabbers to us) who took some fantastic shots.  It was such a pleasure looking through them all and Sarah didn't disappoint, with her trademark candid photographs in the form of Queen T and Izz arriving, T doing the 'hold it this way' talk and not to mention the cow photo bomb!

Elisabeth wanted a contemporary, modern, glamorous Hollywood feel to the day which reflected in her style of dress, hair and make up so it was super important that T and Mel fit the designs in with this brief and boy did they do just that.  T and Mel created a round hand tied that wasn't too compact with champagnes and creams oozing that Hollywood glamour.  The flowers were 'Vendella' roses, 'Creme Gracia' spray roses, amber roses, lisianthus and David Austin 'Patience' roses.

All the other designs from the button holes to the stunning top table decoration very much had the timeless contemporary style running through them.  Also check out the handbag corsage, I have been with T now for 2 years and this is the first time I have seen anything like this.  I absolutely love it and hopefully after this wedding we might be seeing a few more!

So, I know I've have mentioned her earlier but a massive thanks to Sarah Wedding Photographer for taking and letting us use these brilliant images.  Enjoy!

Pretty Pastels at Colshaw Hall in the Cheshire Countryside - Laura and Callum's July Wedding

Hi all,

Today on the blog we have Laura and Callum who got married this July at St Mary's Church then moving on to the beautiful Colshaw Hall in Cheshire.  Floral decorations were a large part of the couple's day with designs going up in the church and the reception venue.

Laura adores flowers and particularly loves big blousy blooms and wanted lots of impact and texture to her bouquet.  With this in mind T designed a stunning cascading bouquet full of delphinium, blue hydrangea, peonies, larkspur and corn flowers.

The bridesmaids had smaller versions of the brides bouquet which looked super cute.  Callum and the guys had sprig style buttonholes with a 'just picked' look to them which fit in beautifully with the floral theme.

The masses of work, time and effort that T and Mel put into designing, making and installing the venue flowers was well worth it, as you will see from the pictures below.  Speaking of which, it's at this point we would like to say a huge thank you to Jonny Draper for letting us have access to and use of these amazing photographs and quite possibly the best picture of T that we will ever own.  So sit back and enjoy!

Thanks for reading

Intimate, Relaxed and Very Pretty-Louise and Peter's Derbyshire Wedding

Hi all,

Here I am again with another real wedding from the summer.  We just love this time of year as the wedding season slows a little and photographers get the time to edit the summer weddings and send us some amazing photography.  My inbox is such a little treasure trove at the minute it's fab.

Today it's all about Louise and Peter who got married at the beginning of August at Peak Edge Hotel.  Louise and Peter kept the whole day quite an intimate yet relaxed affair which reflected in the soft 'just picked' style of Louise's flowers.  The brides bouquet included roses, eucalyptus, tanacetum, lavender, white astilbe, white double delphinium, powder blue delphinium, craspedia, wheat, oats, barley, grasses and stems.  T and Mel also designed a very pretty hair slide for the bride to wear.

The bridesmaids had a very similar style and design to the bride just a little smaller as they were only 13.  The men had a traditional focal style buttonhole and the ladies opted for a sprig style to be a little different.

Massive thanks so Chris Loneragan for getting in touch with us and sharing these fantastic images. Grab a cuppa everyone and have a nosey.
