Campbell's Flower School - Sheffield Workshops at it's Finest

Hi all,

So with our Spring/Summer workshops just around the corner I thought I would pop a blog post together featuring some of the amazing feedback that we have had from the lovely lot that come along to our classes.

It really is such a great evening, the atmosphere is always really great and T's floral knowledge will fill you with the confidence to go away and create something pretty special at home too as well as in the class.  Also I'm always on hand with the kettle on, this floristry lark can be thirsty work!

So here is what our clients had to say:

"I just want to say a massive thank you to you for your workshop tonight.  I have had a fantastic time and have already booked for the next one.  You are a wonderful teacher and have really encouraged me towards a career change onto floristry.  I am going to have a good look into courses but in the meantime I'll be booking onto all of your workshops! - Sarah P"

"I can't express how much fun I had with my friend Adele.  Lots of giggles and a very warm and welcoming environment.  I surprised myself with what I could create with the help of the fabulous Tracey and definitely want to come and do another one. - Sara"

"Alice and I had a great time and will definitely be trying to make my own wreaths next year.  Would also love to come to other workshops. - Jennifer"

"I had such a wonderful time and really learnt some great skills which I will definitely be putting to use in the future.  I am so pleased with my arrangement and was delighted with the materials on offer at the workshop. - Meredith"

"Despite feeling unwell I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed last night and was delighted with the finished arrangement having never done anything like that before! - Sarah"

If you are interested in booking onto one of our workshops then just follow this link.  We will see you there!

Natalie and Scott's Maltby Wedding - Classic colours and cascading bouquets

Hi all,

Natalie and Scott got married in July last year at their local church, St Bartholomew's in Maltby.  This location for the ceremony was extra special to the couple, especially Natalie, as it is where her parents got married.  The couple continued the family connections by having the reception in a marquee in Natalie's parent's garden.  The colour pallet was to be kept very muted with soft blushes, shell pinks and champagne tones, with vintage styling

For her bouquet Natalie wanted something very soft with plenty of texture and in a cascading design with long, soft trails.  The flowers chosen were white and pink peonies, dahlia, vintage roses, silver brunia, larkspur, champagne spray roses and astilbe.

Bridesmaids had a smaller hand tied design with flowers and foliage very similar to the brides. Buttonholes were the classic sprig style design with a single rose bound in ivory ribbon.

T designed quite a collection of venue flowers including a garland for both sides of the lytchgate at the church, pew ends, pedestals and of course the candelabra you can see in the pictures below.

Massive thanks to Marie Anson Photography for letting us have and use these awesome photographs and Joy at Unique Wedding Planning for introducing us to this gorgeous couple.  Enjoy! 

Thanks so much for this Amy.  So, what can I tell you about Natalie and Scott?  Well, as Amy mentioned, we first met at a meeting which Joy from Unique Wedding Planning arranged and immediately hit it off.  Although we didn't chat about it at the time, because Scott was there, Natalie had quite an idea of the style of wedding gown she wanted.  As happens so many times with our brides, when wedding dress shopping she totally fell in love with a her beautiful gown which had more of a vintage styling than she had expected.  We met up again at a wedding fair I was at and talked through a much more cascading design with lots of vintage roses and pretty trails for her bouquet.  I totally loved designing Natalie's bouquet and was just over the moon when I delivered it too her, she was absolutely delighted with it and as you'll have seen from the photographs it worked perfectly too.  It was more than an honour to be part of this fabulous wedding, working with such great people and sharing in the family's joy.

Merete and Peter's Knowsley Hall Wedding - Classically Grand

Hi all,

A couple of weeks ago you may have seen on our Facebook page that we received a gorgeous thank you card from one of our couples, Merete and Peter, well here is their rather grand and rather beautiful wedding!

Merete and Peter got married at Knowsley Hall in Prescott which, as you will see from the photographs, is a really beautiful location.  Merete really wanted the flowers to compliment this Georgian stately home so all the floral designs were kept soft and romantic with the neutral colour pallet slotting nicely into the surroundings.

For her bouquet Merete wanted something really feminine and again nice and soft with smaller and larger blooms adding plenty of texture.  The flowers and foliage chosen were brunia, eucalyptus, David Austin roses, bloom roses, spray roses, lisianthus, dahlia, astrantia, powder blue delphinium and senecio.

The bridesmaids had a similar design to the bride but slightly smaller.  Buttonholes were again in keeping with the surroundings and kept to a classic focal style with an ivory ribbon finish.

Massive thanks to Aquilino Moreno for letting us use these gorgeous images.  Enjoy!
