Hi all,

For this blog we are talking all about wrist corsages.  They make a great alternative to the traditional corsage for Mum and Mum-in-Law especially if they don't fancy sticking pins into that new dress.  We have designed them for bridesmaids too as they make a great alternative to bouquets, especially for the little ones who can sometimes not be up for carrying flowers around all day.

We made this handy little YouTube video chatting all about them, showing you step by step how to tie them and where to place them.  Just click below to have a watch.  We are pretty sure this has been watched a fair few times of a wedding morning and been a bit of a life saver!

Hi all,

So better late than never!  It's been a hectic month here at Campbell's HQ as we head full on into wedding season hence the slight delay in our usual monthly blog, however, May was definitely worth the wait. 

Brights have played a big part - from just a couple of colourful stems, to a full on cascade of lively hues.  Summer season sees scented flowers coming into their own with stocks, roses and sweet peas but to name a few.  We have had the opportunity to increase our involvement with local growers to incorporate more of the British grown blooms which has been a subject very close to our heart since we started our biz, and we aim to  continue to increase our use of homegrown flowers, whenever we can.

Bouquets

Bouquets seemed to follow a posy style trend with our signature Campbell's wildness.







Buttonholes

Sprig style buttonholes well and truly took over last month with gorgeous designs packed full of texture.






Venue Flowers

Venue flowers as always varied from long and low designs to pedestals.  This is where T comes into her own as she has so much experience working in wedding venues in and around Sheffield and Derbyshire and she can easily find a design which will stand out in by creating that all important impact, whilst keeping within the theme of the wedding.

Hi all,

We met Roisin and Paul last year at one of our favourite events, The Indie Wedding Fair 2017!  The couple were one of the first couple to tie the knot at the newly refurbished Yellow Arch Studios which is a gorgeous venue situated just down the road from our studio.  We are so lucky to have such great wedding venues right on our doorstep.

The couple chose to get married on St Patricks day as a nod to their Irish heritage with a predominantly green colour pallet.

For her bouquet Roisin wanted a spring feel (even though there was a snow flurry or two on the day, British weather at it's finest!) with plenty of foliage with a touch of white.  The design was kept meadowy and loose with an asymmetric shape.  Some of the flowers and foliage chosen were ferns, eucalyptus, rosemary, astilbe and chrysanthemum all bound together with a stunning emerald green ribbon (another reference to the Emerald Isle).

For the bridesmaids the couple chose wrist corsages instead of bouquets which was a great choice as it complemented the dresses beautifully.  Buttonholes were a sprig style designs using plenty of foliage.

Shout out to our buddies Jenn Edwards & Co who did a great job on hair and make up as always and big thanks to Mylo Photography for the images they are stunning.  Also if you look closely Roisin is laughing in every single picture which absolutely reflects her personality!

Hi all,

So April saw us pop up on a couple of blogs which was super exciting and also appear in a rather wonderful magazine.  We have been mega busy in the studio with weddings not to mention collaborating on a number of photo shoots, so you will definitely continue to see us and our work in the coming months.

Blogs

Whimsical Wonderland Weddings - Beautiful Country House Wedding

We appeared on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings last month as part of Chloe and Andrew's wedding at Middleton Lodge.  Just follow this link to have a look at the full set of images from what was a gorgeous June day.

Boho Weddings - Laura and Jonny's Super Stylish Sheffield Warehouse Wedding

On Boho Weddings it was winter florals that featured with Laura and Jonny's wedding, massive thanks to Inner City Weddings and Events for introducing us. The ceremony that took place at 99 Mary Street was followed by a reception at Trafalgar Warehouse.  We also got to say a quick hello to our buddies at Jenn Edwards & Co who were doing the hair and make up.  Just follow this link to read the full story.

Magazine

Rock and Roll Bride


We were super excited to see our florals pop up in the May/June 18 issue of Rock and Roll Bride to compliment a segment called Ask Kat.  We have never appeared in this mag before so it was such a great honour to see our work in print with them.  The pictures used were from a shoot we did last year which we like to call Urban Cool and it's clear to see why.  You can grab yourself a copy now.  If you want to have an insight into some super chic styling and alternative wedding inspiration then this is definitely the mag for you.

Hi all,

Super happy to be bringing you a wedding from March this year which took place at The Black Swan in Helmsley.  Even though it was March, Kay and Jonathan definitely got lucky with the weather which although it isn't the be all and end all (some pretty awesome weddings have taken place in the drizzly English weather) it's always nice when the sun shines.  I'm sure it won't go unnoticed that Kay and Jonathan had the best ring bearer in the form of their handsome dog Zac, such a good boy!

Now lets talk flowers, for the brides bouquet Kay wanted quite a wild, asymmetric design with plenty of texture and trails.  The flowers chosen were David Austin 'Juliet', ranunculus, delicate delphinium, blue thistle, eucalyptus, peach hypericum berries and muscari.  The florals were finished off with a simple yet stylish champagne ribbon.

Bridesmaids had more of a compact posy design with flowers and foliage from the theme.  Buttonholes were a sprig style design featuring muscari and thistle.  T also designed a number of venue decorations which included a stunning long and low which you will see as you scroll down.  These versatile arrangements are great as they can be used on the signing table to then later be transferred onto the top table.

The only thing left to say is massive thanks to Maddie Farris Photography for sharing these lovely images with us, scroll down and enjoy!

Hi all,

Here is what we have been up too in April.  We have had such a wonderful month full of fabulous seasonal florals.  If you are looking for inspiration then look no further.  Simply scroll down and enjoy.

Weddings

Last month we kicked off wedding season with a bang and got to design with some stunning spring flowers.  Colour pallets remained varied as always from whites and greens to super brights.  As always all photos taken by our very own T with our Kelham Island Studio as the backdrop.



















Creative  collaborations 

It's always great to get involved in photoshoots as T really gets to showcase her skills and provide something really different that fits the bill.  Last month Amy from Hitch and Arrow who makes the most gorgeous macrame pieces and sells macrame supplies launched a new selection of rope in some stunning colours.  Using their trusty camper van to display their new items T made a beautiful waterfall of flowers to compliment the vibrant colours.  The photos were taken by Amy's talented husband James of The Wandering Bears.




April saw the return of The Indie Wedding Fair just around the corner at 92 Burton Road which is the most innovative, cool and unique wedding fair around.  We got to meet some incredible suppliers and some really great couple's.  For our stand T designed a pampas cloud which was just incredible.  Here are a few pics from our stand, such an amazing day!






Other prettiness

Sometimes T has to satisfy that craving to do something creative and designs arrangements for the studio which you will find below.  We also like to take pictures of pretty flowers that we get through the door because why would you not!?!

Hi all,

Although I have written quite a few blogs this year, this is the first wedding I have been able to blog that actually took place in 2018.  It's so exciting when the professional pictures start to filter through, what a great start to the wedding season!

Cath and Ben got married in February with a ceremony at the Sheffield Town Hall followed by a reception at the Leopold Hotel and Couch.  The whole vibe for the day was super laid back and informal.  The colour pallet for the florals was greens, whites, silvers, blue thistle and steely colours with a tiny hint of burgundy which complimented the blue suits beautifully.

For her bouquet Cath wanted quite a wild asymmetric design with plenty of texture.  Bridesmaids had more of a posy design using flowers and foliage from the theme.  Buttonholes were kept to a sprig design to match the wild style of the brides bouquet.

Big thanks to Mark from Tierney Photography for the stunning images.

Hi all,

Last month our very own T appeared on Boho Weddings chatting all about this year's Pantone colour of the year, Ultra Violet and how you can introduce it into your wedding flowers.  Here is what T had to say about it:

Yep, this is no wall flower of a colour.  No humble hue happy to sit unnoticed in the shade or quietly blend in.  No, this, dear readers, is a showstopper.  A dazzler.  A statement maker.  And I for one can't get enough of it.  Pretty much as vivid as it's possible for a colour to be, this deep and rich purple has long been associated with royalty and has more that a hint of cosmic about it.

It hasn't been without controversy though,  and not everyone, has rushed to embrace it.  In the design world Ultra Violet has experienced something of a 'Marmite moment' and divided opinion in the worlds of fashion and interiors.  Flowers, however, offer a huge variety of ways to include it, play with it and truly get creative with it, so we want to show you how Ultra Violet can work for your wedding,  so pop on Purple Rain and get ready to be inspired.




To create a softer, luxe look you could try adding in gentle lilacs and soft champagne blooms.  Mix Ultra Violet with 'dirty' grey tones 'Earl Grey' roses for a feminine, rich romantic look.


If you prefer your Ultra Violet at full blast, and part of a stunning cacophony of colour aim for contrasting colours on the colour wheel.  Pair it with sunny yellows for an upbeat summer carnival or festival feel.


Another way to let it shine is to incorporate lots of exotic blooms like supersized King Protea and structured foliage such as on-trend monstera, aspidistra and ferns.


Ultra Violet also works beautifully when you create a polychromatic design that incorporates a beautiful mix of many colours, just as in nature you would find a meadow full of wild flowers of all different shades rather than just two.


There are no rules about what you can or can't throw in here, so it's a great way to work with your florist to get really creative and craft something sensational.

We're super excited to see how this trend unfolds this year and see how our couples work it into their big days.  We'd love to hear your thoughts too, will you be daring to give Ultra Violet a try?

T x

Hi all,

So far this year we have been overwhelmed with the amount of blogs and mags that have been kind enough to feature our work.  We just love getting creative whether it be a wedding or a photoshoot and we fall in love with every design that we produce so it's beyond amazing when fellow industry professionals do too.  We can't thank you all enough for showing us the respect and giving us the kudos by sharing our work with the world.

I have put together a selection of appearances below along with the links just in case you missed any of them.  We can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.

Hi all,

I do love it when the photographer manages to snap our very own T delivering flowers to the bride.  As you can see from her face she is always just as excited as our brides are.

Laura and Jonny tied the knot in December in the gorgeous setting of 99 Mary Street followed by a reception at Trafalgar Warehouse.  Although the couple were set on an urban feel they wanted to use florals to slightly soften the surroundings.

For the brides bouquet Laura wanted and ethereal, wintery design - super simple, super elegant, understated bouquet to remember.  T created a stunning shape which softly trailed beautifully against the brides dress.

The bridesmaids had a hand tied posy packed full of green foliage and just a touch of white asparagus fern which adds a great texture to them.  Buttonholes were a sprig design using eucalyptus from the couples' garden, white thistle and you guessed it, that all important white asparagus fern.

Venue designs featured something quite close to mine and T's heart, gin bottles! Although I do have mixed feelings about this as clearly, there is nothing sadder than an empty gin bottle, but then again it was filled with gorgeous foliage and flowers so not all bad.  T and Grace also got to make a botanical back drop at Trafalgar Warehouse for guests to take pics in front of (I believe the kids call them #selfies) and for the speeches to take place.  Foliage was running down the middle of the long wooden tables with tealights placed in between adding that softness that I mentioned earlier.

We got to work with our buddies at Inner City Weddings again which is always a pleasure and big thanks to S6 Photography for sending us the fabulous piccies.  Scroll down and enjoy.
