Can anyone help with this plant/bush?

I am very new to gardening, so I'm sorry if this is really obvious, but can anyone help me with the name of this?
Thanks

The second photo is an azalea.

I believe the first is a Camellia. But could you show a close up of a bud just to verify?

Pretty certain it's neither of those.

I have a camellia and it's different to that. The leaves are smooth. I'll try and get a close up on here.

That's definitely a Camellia - it even has a fruit on it. There are many different species and cultivars so it may not look the same as your other one. Or maybe the other one isn't a camellia ;-)

Thanks for your help, I have two camellias, that's exciting. They are different types, can't wait to see the flowers.
