Don't get us wrong, google has it's place and has brought us plenty of business but it is always great to meet our brides through word of mouth. Our couples often find us through having done a friends or sisters wedding but we got introduced to Jen and Stephen by Jackie who is a regular attendee of our workshops which was really great as we have known her for ages, so it was really great to be a part of her son's big day last June at Dronfield Hall Barn.
The colour pallet was creams and blushes with a romantic, soft and pretty feel throughout all the designs. For her bouquet Jen wanted the shape to be quite elongated so it pointed downwards when she held it. The flowers included were peonies, lisianthus, astrantia roma, waxflower, lavender, spray roses, carnations, rosemary and eucalyptus.
The bridesmaids had similar flowers but in more of a posy style with the super cute flower girl sporting a dainty waxflower crown complete with her very own wand. Buttonholes were kept to a rustic sprig style.
The venue was made complete with a really stunning flower curtain which you will see was lovingly put up by Izzy and T. They are so cool to do and look incredible.
Massive thanks to Eve Photography for the gorgeous pics, we love them.

So the events of November the 6th are finally sinking in and here we sit thinking back to what was an amazing experience at The Wedding Industry Awards 2018. We were sent the official photographs just recently and it was such a pleasure looking through them and reliving what proved to be an incredible evening that passed far too quickly. We really wanted to share our experience with all you guys, after all it was you that got us to where we are now so writing this this blog will hopefully give you an insight into how the evening went and also show you first hand how humbled and grateful we are for your continued support.
We say the evening went quickly, however, that was more the case after we had found out that we had won. The hour beforehand seems to last for about 3! As we waited patiently sipping on our Prosecco it was great to catch up with our buddies Jenn Edwards Wedding Hair and Make Up Team who went on to scoop not one but two awards, go girls! So when it was time to go and take our seats for the main event our tummies were in bits and again we sat there for what seemed a lifetime until we heard "And now it's time to announce best florist in the region". To be honest, none of us can really remember what was said after that we were just waiting to hear a name and I can't tell you how elated we were to hear the magical words "And the winner is CAMPBELL'S FLOWERS!". We couldn't get out of our seats fast enough it was just the best feeling in the world. After that the night just flew by as we celebrated with Prosecco and of course a few pints of lager!
A massive shout out to Dine for the stunning food (the prawns were to die for); The Mansion, Leeds for putting on such a good do and last but by no means least Funtime Frankies for providing the perfect soundtrack to dance the night away.
Enjoy the pics and here are links to our official video and highlights of the night and again thank you so much to all our couples that took the time to vote for us you really have blown us away we are so grateful to you guys.

Feedback from our brides is a wonderful thing and with us entering the TWIA again this year it gave us the perfect opportunity to catch up with some of our past brides which was so lovely. Completely unexpected but very welcome was this lovely feedback e-mail that we got from Ciara and Ricky, one of our lovely couples from July this year.
The e-mail read like this:
"Dear Tracey and the team,
We just wanted to get in touch and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen for our wedding!
Tracey and her team mede me feel at ease for the very first phone call. I was planning my Sheffield wedding whilst living in London so a lot of our correspondence was over the phone and e-mail. From a few chats and Pinterest swapping sessions they absolutely nailed exactly what was in my head - then made it 10 times better!
I couldn't recommend Campbell's enough; they really care about you and your wedding and you feel that from every interaction (If you girls every get stressed then you certainly do a great job of hiding it!!). You're all so calm, lovely and fun and an absolute joy to work with. In a world of boring wedding flowers - Campbell's offer a creative alternative that goes above and beyond to reflect your personality into your day.
Thank you Thank you Thank you
Ciara and Ricky "
And that is exactly why we do what we do!
