Products and Services
I was introduced to calligraphy more than 20 years ago and my first commission was for a wedding. Over the years, I have added calligraphy - which translates from the Greek for 'beautiful writing' - to wedding stationery for friends and family and in 2014, I took this a step further and launched Creative Calligraphy. There is something very personal and special about receiving something hand-written and I think calligraphy can provide an elegant finishing touch to your wedding stationery. The service you receive from me will also be very personal. As a one-woman band, you can be assured of one-to-one attention. I am able to offer a range of calligraphy styles to complement your stationery and/or wedding theme, in a variety of colours. Calligraphy can be used to add guest names to invitations, envelopes, place cards and table plans, or create lasting memories of the day by having vows, readings or lyrics written and framed as keepsakes. If your wedding stationery deserves more than a ballpoint pen, or digitised font, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I also run workshops, if you'd like to try calligraphy for yourself, or get a group of friends together for an alternative hen party.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Can I say my own? I did do my own calligraphy! Each wedding is unique and I love the small intimate ceremonies as well as those worthy of a double-page spread in a glossy magazine. One of my brides got married at Durham Cathedral and the pictures from that were pretty spectacular - flowers galore!
What about your business are you most proud of?
The reaction I get when I hand over a completed commission - all positive so far! Making people happy makes me happy.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember that it's your day, so do it your way.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One of my brides hand-delivered every single one of her invitations.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I will discuss calligraphy styles and types and colour of ink, deciding on which would best suit the stationery before coming up with a sample, if necessary. Then it's just a case of getting the guest list, or wording if it's a piece of writing, and the stationery and getting on with the calligraphy. Simple really!
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
I think the wedding invitation - and the envelope it arrives in - really sets the tone for your wedding. It gives your guests an initial clue as to what to expect from your big day - and first impressions count!
