What is your most memorable wedding?
I was asked by a couple (who are now very good friends of mine) to design them a Rockabilly Wedding set. I made their invitations, place cards and also table plan in black, red and polka dot. We became such good friends that I even got an invite to their wedding day! The most nerve-wracking thing was seeing the A1 table plan I had made and hearing people comment about it without knowing it was me who made it! Thankfully, everyone was very complimentary!

What about your business are you most proud of?
How many friends I have made from the couple who I have worked for. Meeting new people is guaranteed as a stationer and I have made some very good friends through my work, two of which invited me to be part of their day!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
This is a tricky one! From my point of view I would definitely say that there are two to consider with stationery. The first one is that it is NEVER too soon to order your invites. I have had to let down countless couples because they have come to me needing their invites within the next month or so and I have had to recommend them to other stationers. My books are on average booked up solidly nearly 8 months in advance, so if you are looking for a good stationer, you probably need to look at booking them about 12 months before you need your invites to ensure you get a space! Secondly would be budget! Stationery comes in may forms, and indeed in many price ranges. I would say I sit at the high end of the middle in terms of pricing, I am not the most expensive, but I am also not the cheapest! If you want something that really sets the stage for you wedding then a reasonable budget will be required! Invites and Save the dates are the first impression guests will have of a wedding; therefore if you want to give a good impression you may need a decent budget too!
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
Definitely invitations! Invitations are the first impression guest will get of the day that they are going to be involved in. Romantic invitations give the impressions are love and warmth, elegant invitations give the impression sophistication. Handmade stationery is particularly tactile and also weighs a fair bit; I have had couples contact me after their Wedding to say that family members have held onto their invites as a keepsake, one even framed it! So for me invitations are the most important part of what I do.
What is your best seller?
King's Road is our most popular from our printed range. Our handmade ranges with Hessian seem to be very popular for vintage/rustic weddings as well!
