Name of Wedding Contact: Gemma
Hello and congratulations! I hope you're enjoying your planning journey and you find all that you're looking for. I'm Gemma and I have many years experience as a professional graphic designer. To make life a little easier, I have some 'off the shelf' designs to choose from, or if you have something specific in mind I can work with you to create it. I love nothing more than bringing couple's ideas to life for their big day!

I’d highly recommend getting in touch with Gemma
I’m so glad that we decided to get our wedding invitations made by Jellicoe Creative Stationery. Gemma was really welcoming when we met to discuss the designs. We used one of their existing designs and tweaked it to fit our theme and personalities. Gemma was really helpful and more than happy to change and tweak the design until we were ready to get them printed. We were both over the moon when the invites arrived as they look fantastic. � I’d highly recommend getting in touch with Gemma to look at getting your wedding stationery designed! We’ve had loads of people say that our invitations look great. Thank you Gemma!!

We have had lots of compliments
I first met Gemma at the Dorset Wedding Festival last year and I loved the designs they had. A particular one caught my eye so I later emailed Gemma for a quote. I emailed her in January when I wanted to go ahead with my order, and all through the process of designing and ordering Gemma was so helpful and gave me ideas for things I had missed. Once my invitations arrived I was over the moon with them, they were beautiful!! Since they have been sent out we have had lots of compliments on how lovely they are. I can't wait to order our matching table plan and table numbers in June! I also bought one of the Jellicoe cards for a friend's birthday and the quality was amazing and my friend loved it! I would highly recommend Jellicoe stationery, an amazing company with a personal touch!

We felt in safe hands with Gemma
Our invitations arrived this week and they are amazing we cant wait to send them to our guests. From the very beginning Gemma listened to everything we explained about the theme we were wanting to go with. The invitations are the first sight your guests will have of your wedding and we felt in safe hands with Gemma. The important thing for me was to have something that wasn't your traditional wedding theme, and it was a rarity to come across someone in the wedding industry who didnt push tradition on to us. Thanks so much Gemma - you're a star!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Most memorable has to be when I was asked to incorporate a pug onto some invitations. the couple wanted him in a wedding dress too, so my photoshop skills were put to the test! I had so much fun doing it and they loved the end result.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, alternative, contemporary, stylish, quality.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I won the 2016 and 2017 Dorset Wedding Awards 2 years in a row and was a finalists for the Wedding Industry Awards 2017.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Be yourselves and have your wedding, your way. Add your personalities into it to make a really memorable day.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I'm a real dog lover and a sucker for a dog at a wedding. One of our recent couples flew their dog out to the Czech Republic to be at their wedding. He had the most gorgeous floral necklace and looked super cute!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Initial communication is typically by email, gathering information for a quote. If it's a bespoke order I would ask for examples of what the couple likes. If the couple is local we will sometimes arrange a face to face meeting, to discuss design and show samples. Or if the couple is further away I will offer to arrange a phone meeting and post any samples if necessary. Once everything is agreed I will send a booking form and an invoice, at that stage 50% of the invoice is required to start the design process. I normally send first proofs within 2/3 days and clients can amend where necessary. Once they are happy with the design and give sign off, the remaining 50% of the invoice will be due and I can then send everything to print. All items, apart from pocketfold invitations, will come direct from the printer to the couple, which cuts down on cost and reduces our carbon footprint.

What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?

The most important piece has to be the invitations! Without which, no one would know the details. They are also the first impression people have of your day and gives a hint to the style and theme of what's to come.

What is your best seller?

Invitations are my best seller, in a self assemble set. It's a very cost effective way to include all the extra's you need and is tied together with a lovely printed band. Vellum bands are also available for that extra special touch.

How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?

With every invitation order, couples can have their very own monogram logo which can feature in various places. This can then be added to all the 'on the day' stationery items to tie it all together and adds a personal touch.
