Save the Dates / Thank You Notes
Your wedding Save the Date cards or wedding invitations are the first "peek" of the style and themes of your special day, and as such should be demonstrated in your choice of wedding stationery. Once we have worked together to finalise they style of your stationery, we can then transport this all the way through your ceremony, reception, and cards for thanking your guests. We have no minimum order quantity, and dedicate as much time as required in order to get your stationery exactly perfect for you. We only use the finest quality cardstock and ribbons, and craft each item with love and care to ensure your stationery has the wow factor from the moment the envelope hits the mat. Our regular cardstock is available in hundreds of colours, finishes and textures, and teamed with a similarly huge range of ribbons and embellishments, we can match almost any theme.

What is your most memorable wedding?
In late 2015 I was recommended to a panicked bride, who had planned on DIY-ing their reception stationery as they had their invitations. However her groom was ill and booked in for a kidney transplant just 3 weeks before the wedding. After a few calls and emails, I designed something that they were happy with; that suited the constellation/astronomy theme they had planned. A week before the wedding I delivered them a handmade table plan, 140 place names, table name cards and menus, and they in turn gifted me an love of stargazing - something I'd never really been that interested in. I bumped into them just before Christmas in 2016, and it was quite emotional!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Custom, handmade, beautiful, classic, perfect.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I started my business because whilst planning my wedding I couldn't find what I wanted. So my brides (and grooms) get exactly what they want, and if that's something I don't have currently, I'll find it for them. My aim is to give them everything they want without any of the stress.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get good spreadsheet - one that covers everything covers everything from your budget, to-do list and guests. And keep it up-to-date!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love when people take their hobbies and transform them into their weddings. I've done military themes, trains, castles, planes, constellations, movies, and I love them all! It just adds an extra zazz to the day - something that makes it personable and unique. Every wedding should be a perfect show of the Bride and Groom's personalities.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Firstly I'll point the couple to my website, and ask them to tell me what they like and dislike about some of my standard designs. I'll take their feedback and colour scheme and put together a couple of samples for them. They let me know what they like or don't like about the samples. I put together a final sample, which may or may not be tweaked before it's ordered, produced and delivered.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
In my eyes the invitation is the most important as it's the first "peek" of the setup and style of the day. Plus it gives you an idea of what colour dress NOT to buy, unless you want to look like a bridesmaid (which someone did at my wedding....)
What is your best seller?
I never produce two orders the same, as each one is customised by the couple. However, this year, my 'Nadine' design with the glitter and ribbon bow is probably the most popular. Last year the bestseller was variants of my 'Hannah' invitation.
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
My stationery is a reflection of the bride and groom as a couple, and to me there's nothing more romantic than that.
