Based in central Cardiff, Fir and Gold was founded by illustrator Layla Holzer. With a First Class Illustration degree and MA in Art and Design under her belt, a background in exhibition and editorial illustration, and an obsession with the natural world, folk art and whimsical love, Layla is an illustrator on a quest to create fresh contemporary wedding stationery that is beautiful, quirky and unique. Every single design has originally started as a hand-created illustration, either painted using the finest watercolours, gouaches and inks, or painstakingly cut from paper and card and then layered into imagery. Created completely in-house, you will not see our designs anywhere else! Once finished, these illustrations have then been digitised and paired with stunning, modern typography before being printed onto either tactile lightly-hammered gesso card or softly-finished smooth card. All of our stationery is printed onto FSC certified cards/papers. We can personalise our stationery with your wedding details, and we offer several selected suites with different options to suit you as a couple. We also off hand-foiled and vellum finishes on selected designs and bespoke custom designs, as well as our bridesmaid and thank you cards. Each customer order is worked on individually and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and high quality customer service. We really love creating bespoke wedding stationery and paper-cut gifts, so if you are looking for something extra special and completely individual, please contact us to discuss our bespoke services. We cannot wait to work with you!

Chosen Wedding Fair, Cardiff
14th October 2018
Chosen's mission is to bring you a fresh and contemporary event light years away from the ‘generic’ and oversaturated wedding fair world.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Quirky, contemporary, illustrated, creative and bold
What about your business are you most proud of?
All of our designs have been hand-created so they're completely original and unique to Fir & Gold, and each one has Layla's distinctive illustration style.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Choose a wedding invitation suite that represents you as a couple - your style, your tastes and personality. For that extra special touch, opt for a bespoke design service to have something created that truly reflects you both.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After an order is placed, I discuss the personalisation requirements with the couple and ensure that the wording is all correct and if there are any other little touches or add-ons needed. I then put all of these details into the design and send over a PDF proof for checking. Once the couple has confirmed that they are happy with design and details, the order is then sent to print through to our outsourced printing team who then send the stationery directly to the couple.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
Your invitations! It gives a real first taste of what your theme, colour scheme and style will be for your wedding, as well as including all of the details that your guests need to know.
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Our stationery is inspired by whimsical romance, and we love adding foil finishes to add a little luxe and style which really vamps up the romance!
