What is your most memorable wedding?
That would be my own! Haha! Let's be honest, it's the best day of your life.... So why wouldn't it be your most memorable!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
There is so much to be proud of! I quit my career at 30 to pursue this dream, so I'm proud to wake up every day and still be running this business!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
DO NOT STRESS! Honestly, I wish I listened to everyone that told me that, but really, your wedding day takes you to an almost out of body experience of happiness and when the day comes you realise that there was no point in stressing about anything. Seeing everyone you love round you and so happy makes all the planning worthwhile. So make sure to enjoy every stage of the planning, you will enjoy your day even more!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I was at a wedding and the couple had made tiles with each person's photo printed on them and they were used as place cards. I mean the time and thought that must have taken was just such a lovely touch!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
My typical process is that the bride pours her wedding Pinterest board out to me and the groom just nods.... Grooms, always just nod! Haha! But on a serious note, I like to meet with the bride, we go through all her ideas and visual inspo, have coffee and cake, and I can then interpret what she invisions and then add my creativity to take things to another design level, as well as give alternative options. I then draw up two drafts and from then the couple can pick their favourite and we tweak it until we get what we have been looking for!
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
All of it! Your save the dates give a little snippet of what's to come, your invitation I like to describe as being the official branding of your wedding, showing your guests the colour theme venue and style. Initials and crests are always quite popular for this as we can carry this through to order of service, menus, table plans etc on the big day itself.
What is your best seller?
Bridesmaids proposals. I think the whole paper and pen and letter writing is coming back in its own right, and there is something really special about something being made individually for each person.
What is the most innovative delivery method you have come across?
Hmmm.... I have had invitations courier delivered before, but nothing more exciting than that! Pigeon delivery I'm pretty sure is a thing of the past!
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
By always incorporating the couple in a visual aspect, be it a crest design, initial logo or maybe their sense of humour in the way of wording... I always tell couples how important it is that their stationery is able to reflect them as a couple in some way, and we always manage to in whatever form that may turn out to be.
