What is your most memorable wedding?
My own wedding was of course very memorable. My husband and I tied the knot in a tiny church just outside Guildford & we were then flown by helicopter from an adjacent wheat field, to our wedding venue, Great Fosters in Egham! It sounds a bit flash, but it was a gift from a helicopter pilot friend, which we just couldn't say no to! However, since then I've been to so many wonderful friends' weddings, its almost impossible to choose!

What about your business are you most proud of?
Apart from my dedication to delivering stylish stationery, I take a lot of pride in providing a personal and seamless ordering process. Organising a wedding or event can be stressful and your stationery is just one of many things on the 'To Do List'. I want to make it an easy and enjoyable experience.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Consider the style/theme and venue for your wedding as soon as you and start looking at stationery options to suit, as Save the Dates go out 9-12 months in advance of your wedding day and invitations around 6-8 weeks in advance. A custom stationery designer will of course allow you the flexibility to tailor your stationery to suit your requirements and theme, however lead-times can be up to 6-8 weeks from initial contact to print delivery.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Some friends had a late Spring wedding in Spain and all the ladies were given a beautiful traditional painted wooden fan to keep cool.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The invitation is the essential piece as it sets the tone for your wedding day (particularly if you're not sending out Save the Date cards).
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Well, we see the modern couple as fresh-thinking, who want to create a look and atmosphere for their wedding day, which not only reflects their personalities but also creates a memorable day for their guests. By offering a custom design service, we make room for those individual choices, whether it's a custom colour combination, or a completely bespoke design. Let's face it, the stationery (and perhaps the website), is the first impression that your guests will receive of your special day!
