Summer Sun and Subtle Shades - A Blazing June Wedding

Hi all,

Today I thought I would bring you something a little different.  Instead of all the winteryness and Autumnal colour pallets I thought I would share with you this wedding from June this year.  A little sunshine now the weather has turned so cold. 

Rachel got married in Penistone Church before heading off to 315 at Lepton near Huddersfield. Rachel wanted to keep the colours and tones of her flowers quite muted with shades of champagne, pale peach, shell pink, powder blues and cream.  T and Mel kept the feel of the bouquet quite soft with plenty of texture creating this feminine and romantic look.  The flowers used were peonies, roses 'Amnesia', lisianthus 'hot lips', pink gypsophila and 'Jana' spray roses.

The bridesmaids had a similar design to the bride just a little bit smaller.  The buttonholes were a focal style featuring a spray rose and lisianthus buds.

The table decorations were very in keeping with the simple yet stylish theme.  They were a hand tied style in a plain glass vase, I just love them they are so simple but just look so stunning.

Massive shout out and thanks to Adele Hayward at Blue Lights Photography for sending us and letting us have use of these amazing shots.

Rusty Rich Colours and Warm Autumnal Arrangements - Alison and Phil's October Wedding

Hi all,

Today on the blog we are featuring the lovely Alison and Phil.  They tied the knot a couple of weeks ago in Leeds.  Alison chose to have a best women which I think is such a lovely idea and must have been a real honour for Alison's friend.  I have only heard of this a couple of times but I do hope it's something we hear and see more of.

Alison is a really talented, highly creative Milliner and she  wanted a very Autumnal feel to the wedding which if course is T and Mel's speciality, as it's seasonal.  The designs had a woodland, just picked feel in very rich colours including reds, maroons, russet and burnt oranges.  T and Mel designed a very open, unstructured bouquet with plenty of texture.  The flowers used were leucadendron, continus, echinops, thistles, scabious seed pods, hypericum, russet hydrangea, burnt orange freesia, skimmia and reddy/grey succulents.

Along with these great images that were taken by a friend of Alison and Phil's, Alison sent us a lovely note which read like this:

"I first met Tracey when we worked together on a photo shoot a few years ago.  I was impressed with Tracey's work, her friendliness and her professionalism.

When we were planning our wedding I thought of Tracey and was thrilled when she agreed to arrange my wedding flowers.

We had a meeting to discuss ideas and Tracey completely understood what I wanted.  My wedding was going to have an Autumnal theme so I wanted lots of berries and leaves with a few flowers.  I have no idea about flowers and Tracey made some wonderful suggestions.

The one thing I did want was some thistles in my bouquet to represent my late father who was Scottish.  Tracey understood this and knew I just needed a subtle nod to my father.

When my flowers arrived on my wedding day I was completely blown away with how stunning they looked. The colours worked perfectly with my theme and everyone commented on how amazing the bouquets, buttonholes and corsages looked.  They were everything I wanted and more.  The thistles fitted perfectly and were a wonderful tribute to my dad.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Tracey and to Mel.  I couldn't have asked for more and would HIGHLY recommend Campbell's Flowers.  A wonderful, professional, friendly service with a real feeling of care and attention to details.  Many, many thanks to you all."

Thanks again Alison for such kind words it was an absolute pleasure.
