Gemma and Gary's Halifax Hall Wedding - Big hugs for a gorgeous lady

Hi all,

From the moment that we met Gemma we were so excited to work with her, she is so happy, enthusiastic and generally just lovely but as the day drew nearer there was a little ounce of dread as we knew it was the end of our working relationship.  Gemma was such a pleasure to have around and deal with that we kind of miss her.

We first met Gemma when she won one of T's bouquets on a like and share competition and it couldn't have worked out better as she had just got engaged, it's like it was meant to be.  Gemma and Gary got married in August at the beautiful St Marie's Church then moved onto Halifax Hall for the reception.

The couple wanted a vintage feel to the day (one of the reasons why Gemma was drawn to us) which reflected in the 50's style bridesmaids dresses.  The colour pallet for the bouquet was very soft, made up mostly of champagne colours and pale blush pink.  Gemma wanted a classic round design for her bouquet with a little softness, so it wasn't too compact.  The flowers chosen were David Austin roses, dahlias, apricot lisianthus, astilbe, campanula, 'creme garcia' spray roses, 'Vendella' roses, sweet avalanche roses, quicksand roses and white hydrangea.  Gemma specifically asked for Rosemary for remembrance which we thankfully managed to source.

The bridesmaids had a similar style bouquet to Gemma just slightly smaller with more of a muted colour pallet.  Buttonholes were a simple focal style with a special little one for their super cute page boy Fin.

Nathalia and Callum's Whirlowbrook Hall Wedding - Floral texture and familiar faces

Hi all,

I love Sheffield for many reasons and the fact that everyone knows everyone is one of them.  When Nathalia came to the studio to drop off her containers I thought to myself "I know that face!" and it turns out that we go to the same gym and have even worked out together, small world eh?  With doing a lot of the admin and behind the scenes stuff here at Campbell's I am familiar with names but don't usually get to put a face to them until the photographs from the wedding arrive so it was a rare treat to meet the bride before her big day and even better that we kind of knew each other!

Nathalia and Callum got married this July in St Mary's Cathedral right in the heart of the city centre but also a stones throw from the studio, the couple then went on to Whirlow Brook Hall for the reception.

For her bouquet Nathalia wanted to keep the colour pallet quite neutral with plenty of creams and whites but she absolutely loves texture.  T designed a very full cascading bouquet with a good mix of small and large blooms to give the bride that texture she was after.  The blooms chosen were green hydrangea, rosemary, viburnum opulus, ammi, scabious seed pods, white peonies, white thistle, white astrantia, grey brunia, white wax flower, roses and mint.

Bridesmaids had a posy design with flowers similar to the brides and the super cute flower girl (see pictures below) had a pretty little head dress and mini bouquet.  Buttonholes were a sprig designs with extra detail on the groom's to make it stand out.

Nathalia's sister is starting her own wedding styling business which was great as she could provide must of the gorgeous containers and decorations used.

Fabulous Four Legged Friends - The official Rain Rescue 2017 calendar photoshoot

Hi all,

So it's not all about the weddings here at Campbell's HQ, as we love to get stuck into creative projects too.  We got super excited when we were asked to get involved in the latest calendar for the Rain Rescue dog charity by fellow Lightspacer Shelley Richmond Photography.  Shelley did all the photography for the calendar but these fab behind the scenes shots were taken by Danni Maytree.  T got to make some really cute doggy flower crowns and corsages.  Here are a few behind the scenes shots and the official 2017 calendar is now available by following this link with proceeds going to the charity.  Also you can learn more about Rain Rescue and what they do by checking out the website.
