What is your most memorable wedding?
I can't narrow this down to just one wedding, every wedding is unique and special and to pick one out of all of the weddings I have made stationery for would be too hard.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Bespoke, modern, stylish, embellished, fresh
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm proud that I started this business from nothing just five years ago and worked hard on getting myself known and on my reputation, and winning six awards has made me feel like I'm really in the right job. I just love what I do.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
HAVE FUN!!! When you're planning a wedding it can be very daunting sometimes. If you ever start feeling stressed, stop what you're doing, take a step back and remember what you're doing it for. You're marrying the person that you love, all that matters is the vows you exchange at the altar, after that everything else is a bonus. Once you have that in your head, you'll start enjoying it again.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I really love personalisation, it makes people feel special, so things like personalised readings make such a lovely keepsake of the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I normally meet with the couple (sometimes the groom is enthusiastic!) and we talk though their wedding and what ideas they have and what they want the overall look to be. We then discuss style and designs of the invitations, once that's agreed, we talk through what else they might need for their wedding, which is where I will recommend my suppliers to them. The following day I will send a quotation to the couple and if they want to go ahead, I send them an invitation checklist form which gives me all of the details I need to design the invitations, I then go on to make the invitations once all of the proofs have been approved by the couple (and only when!). When they're finished I photograph them for my website (and posterity!) and ship them to my couples.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The invitation is the most important piece of stationery you need for your wedding, not only does it set the tone for the wedding, as it is the first thing your guest will see that is related to your wedding. It then gives guests an idea of your colours, style, themes etc. It is also an important information giver, the more detail and information you add to your invitation, the less likely you are going to be answering none stop questions about your wedding day, which you really don't need.
What is your best seller?
My best seller would have to the the Dior Bow Invites, they are so simple, but they are a timeless classic and with 47 ribbon colours to choose from, there's always a colour for you.
What is the most innovative delivery method you have come across?
Well that's a good question....I often have clients collect directly from me so that I can talk them through their order, but I wouldn't say that was innovative, just convenient!
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
I think that fonts really do speak a thousand words, there are some beautiful fonts available and they can really set the tone of your stationery, but equally as important is the wording you choose, with good fonts and beautiful words you can make any colour seem romantic, even lime green (well almost!!)
