What is your most memorable wedding?
The first wedding of our friendship group, it marked a new stage in our lives and I was so overwhelmed at how the air almost ‘buzzed’ with love and happiness. It always makes me smile thinking of that day.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unique, classic, luxe, whimsical & striking
What about your business are you most proud of?
That I had the guts to start!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Break the planning into prioritised manageable chunks and focus on each in turn - it turns a mammoth task into little ones that aren’t so daunting!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love personal touches - these make the day unique to the couple. Any signage or little details that show how much thought and love went into the day means it stays with guests forever. My favourite so far were individual candle place settings that the bride had personalised herself - it was so impressive and such a lovely favour! Ours are still used in our house.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
For a bespoke order, I like to get to know the couple, their style and what their wedding will be like. This happens during the initial consultation. At this stage we can discuss budget, different printing methods and anything specific you would like to include. This helps to guide the final design and make sure it’s perfect for you! I will then work on some rough designs before we choose one to move forward with.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
This is such a hard one. The average stationer would say the invitation as this is the first insight into the day your guests get, and this is completely true! It’s is one of the few things you can keep from the day that aren’t memories. But I absolutely love the added personal details on the day, whether that be the order of service, the signage, the favours or place names, any special items there on the day really stick with guests when they remember your wedding!
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Romance in my opinion is subjective. It means different things to different people and can be something as simple as picking up someone’s favourite chocolate bar at the shop to the most over the top proposal! For me romance is personal. I like to get to know my couples and work together to create something that is truly unique and ‘them’ that it will make them smile for years to come. That personal feel is what makes individual couple’s invitations romantic - it’s specific to them!
