Country garden and dreamy meadow inspired bridal bouquets full of seasonal blooms and a necklace made of flowers
What a beautiful feast of floral design we have for you today! If you are planning a summer wedding and have just started thinking about your wedding flowers, then grab of cup of something warm and settle down to soak up some inspiration from one of our florists, Campbell’s Flowers.
Over the summer Tracey and her team at Campbell’s Flowers had a lovely intern – Kate – working for them. To celebrate the end of her internship they put together a shoot of stunning seasonal blooms, and my gosh are they heavenly. Kate also works as a second shooter for a wedding photographer so she’s pretty nifty with a camera, capturing this beautiful floral collection at Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
Here’s Kate to tell you more about what they did…
To mark the final day of an amazing internship with Campbell’s Flowers, we ventured off to shoot some beautiful British grown bouquets. While taking shelter from the summer showers we made use of the beautiful light in the Pavilions in Sheffield Botanical Gardens and got some lovely soft shots of the interchangeable flower necklace and flower crown, crafted from locally grown seasonal flowers.
One of the things I particularly love about weddings is the lovely personal touches that can be captured and remembered forever, this shoot was no different. It was a beautiful summer’s day a couple of years ago that Tracey herself got married in the Botanical Gardens and it is also her gorgeous wedding dress that her daughter is modelling in the shoot.
The coincidence is that while I was writing my last university essays of the year I would go to the Botanical Gardens on my writing breaks, day dreaming of doing a styled bridal shoot there, at the time it felt like very wishful thinking. You can just imagine how excited I was when Tracey suggested the idea to me of doing a shoot there with her gorgeous wildflower bouquets!
The sun came out and the scents the bouquets exuded gradually filled the air of the Pavilions, we moved around the gardens from the rose garden to the tall grassed prairie with Campbell’s Flowers signature just-picked-bouquets looking perfectly at home and absolutely stunning in such beautiful natural surroundings.
Purple and Blue Flower Crown of Cosmos and Nigella
Flower crowns continue to remain a popular choice for brides at the moment, but what about considering a floral necklace? Tracey from Campbell’s Flowers created this interchangable circlet that could be worn either as a crown or a necklace.
Floral ingredients used: Nigella, Cosmos, Sweet William, Clary Sage, and Zinnia’s.
Sunny Yellow Bouquet of Sunflowers and Succulents
It’s hard not to be cheered up by this jolly yellow bouquet, with its accents of white and pale green, and sheer trailing ribbon. Perfect inspiration for anyone planning a summer wedding with a yellow colour palette.
Meadow Inspired Cascading Bouquet with Wheat and Cornflowers
I will always be enamoured by meadow inspired wedding flowers, there’s just something so romantic about the idea. Here Tracey has brought in elements of an English meadow or field with stems of golden wheat ears and bonny blue cornflowers.
Purple and Pink Bouquet of Lavender and Sweet Peas
A pretty purple and pink bridal bouquet containing fragrant sweet peas is perfect for evoking that English county garden feel for your wedding, and Tracey from Campbell’s Flowers has expertly created that “just picked” look with this pretty bouquet.
A huge thank you to Kate and Tracey for sharing this beautiful shoot with us, and to the suppliers of these fabulous seasonal, British grown flowers – Hollow Meadows Flowers, Yorkshire Lavender, and Shropshire Petals.
