Campbell's Christmas Wreaths


So this year at Campbell's HQ we have been busy little elves making Campbell's very own Christmas wreaths ready for the festive season.  They are very much in keeping with the Campbell's style and ethos using natural materials where possible, some of which we will be foraging locally so keep your eye out for us and say Hi.  We do have to use a bit of wire to keep it all together and a bit of ribbon, well, because it's pretty so bear that in mind before you pop it into the compost heap in a couple of months.

We are making them to order so they are nice and fresh for you and will last you well into the New Year.  They are available in a choice of two designs, with a choice of ribbon too.

Firstly there is a medium size rustic style wreath including cinnamon sticks, pine cones, wheat and choice foliage.  These are £30 each.

Anna and Sam - Beautiful Blushes for an English Rose

Well hello there!!!

So as the nights draw in and the winter weather looms grab a hot chocolate, put your onesie on and have a read of our blog.  Today I am counteracting winter with a lovely wedding from this spring.  Anna and Sam got married last May at Heathy Lea on the Chatsworth Estate, if you have never been it is well worth a trip out as its absolutely beautiful.  Such a great location for an outdoor wedding.

Anna is a massive fan of flowers and was very clear that they were to play a huge part in her wedding and we were only too happy to oblige.  It was like a dream come true for us.  Anna wanted a wild, oversized bouquet with trails and wanted to keep with flowers that were in season if possible.  Being a fellow flower lover it was hard for Anna to choose but in the end the bouquet included lily of the philadelphus, David Austin roses 'Patience' and 'Keira 'varieties, white lilac, stocks, larkspur, 'creme gracia' spray roses, cream wax flower, asparagus fern, green bell and 'hypnose' rose.

An oversized, just picked wild flower bouquet in a cascading style.

Anna also went with a stunning bridal crown which complimented her dress and bouquet beautifully.

The Wedding Industry Awards 2015 - T and Amy's Big Night Out!


It's not often I get to open a blog post with a whoohoo, but I can hardly contain my excitement at the moment!  As I'm sure many of you know, on Monday Amy and I travelled up to North Yorkshire to attend this year's TWIA awards at Middleton Lodge.

A few weeks ago, scarily close to the deadline, we were nominated by one of our fabulous brides in the Best Wedding Florist category for this year's awards.  So, Team Campbell's rose to the challenge and got in touch with as many of the wonderful couples we'd worked with as we could. And they voted. Lots and lots of them. It was really wonderful. The alert on my email just kept on pinging away every time someone voted. So, although we don't get to see what you've said, it is just lovely to know who's taken time out of their busy lives to vote for us.

For which we'd like to say a ludicrously huge, THANK YOU!

It's been an amazing year. Our awesome team has grown and we've had the real honour and pleasure to work with more of you than ever. And we just can't believe that we've managed to win this highly prestigious award two year's in a row. Astonishing!

So thank you once again to Mel, Amy, Soph and Izzy and all you lovely people who make this the best job I've ever had.  Roll on London and the nationals and up the North!

Much love


Oh, the anticipation!

Carlton Towers & The Whiting Collection Photo Shoot - A Sumptuous Summer Setting

Hi all!

So, it's been a little while since I have I have had the time to bring you a blog (we have been rushed off if our feet here at Campbell's HQ) and what better than a photo shoot to get back into the swing of things.  T was lucky enough to involved with this stunning shoot at Carlton Towers with the amazing KMR Bridal.  Here is what T had to say about working on the shoot and the inspiration behind her floral designs.

"I was thrilled when Kelly contacted me about the shoot - we'd met a few months previously at a wedding fair where my daughter was wearing one of my floral crowns!  We'd both loved each other's design style and aesthetic and had agreed to collaborate at some point.  When she told me the shoot was to showcase her latest collection, at the fabulous Carlton Towers, I jumped at the chance."
