Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What about your business are you most proud of?
Starting it from scratch and learning as I went along
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
nobody knows what you have planned for the day, so if a detail or timing goes wrong you will be the only person that notices. Your guests will be oblivious.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A goodie bag for the ladies loo's. It had things like deodorant, plasters, blister plasters, chewing gum, paracetamol and hairspray. I used almost all of them.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First I get the couple to send me over any idea they have. I will then do a few ideas which hopefully tick all the boxes. Once a design has been chosen and tweaked I ask for final numbers of invitations required. I send a final proof by email and once it is approved the order is made. Its is at this point a 50% non refundable deposit is required. The whole process takes around 3 weeks from concept to being delivered. Once the order is ready to post I request the remaining order balance and post out the order. Post normally takes 2-3 days depending on the level of service you pick.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The invitation for sure. It's the first thing anyone sees of your wedding so it has to be just right. It also contains all the information your gust will need. you dont want people contacting you every 5 minutes asking where to park or where to stay or whats on the menu!
What is your best seller?
Flat Invitations are definitely more popular at the moment and I get asked a lot for watercolour styles.
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
It's the little touches like your initials on the back of the invite inside a heart or two little love birds sharing a kiss. Cute little touches that don't impact on the design as such.
