Lots of Compliments!
We ordered these wedding invitations and were so pleased with the results. We changed the colours to lighter blues/ turquoise to match our colour scheme. Michelle replied promptly and we were able to see a couple of drafts before placing our final order. We have had lots of compliments from the guests!

Clever Design
Absolutely adore these save the dates! The quality of the finished product exceeded my expectations and the envelopes matched well. Shipping time was prompt even though it was an international order during the holiday season. Our friends and family thought they were very clever, and I can't wait to order matching invitations for our literary themed wedding! Thanks Michelle! :)

Brides magazine, Your Merseyside Wedding

What is your most memorable wedding?

Typically, orders begin with a one to one consultation where I get an opportunity to find out about the couple and their ideas for their wedding. From there, I can work out what stationery they might be looking for and can show th a selection of samples which might be of interest. Once an order begins, proofs are generated for approval and an order finally goes to print once the Couple are happy with their design.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Bohemian, Vintage, Floral, Ecclectic, Retro

What about your business are you most proud of?

I've been running my business independently since it's launch in 2013, and love that I've staying in touch with many of my couples well beyond their wedding date. I've been nominated for Best Stationery Business in the Northwest County Brides Awards and have been featured in several prestigious Bridal publications.

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

I've worked on many destination weddings, the most memorable being for an Australian couple who married in Italy and had guests attending from literally all over the globe. The stationery design encompassed their love of travelling combined with the style of their venue and an art deco flair.

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

I find the invitation is the most important - it tells your guests so much more than just the date and location - the quality, the design, the wording used all give your guests an idea of what to expect from your day and really, whether they should be excited to attend.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Weddings are personal - it's all about reflecting your personality as a couple. Its very easy to get swayed by current trends, but I find couples are much less stressed when they keep things true to a style they are accustomed to.

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

My modern botanical collection is a clear favourite amongst my couples, closely followed by my Scratch off Save the Date cards.
