Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Designer, stunning, unique, bespoke and luxurious
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of the high level of personalised service that we provide to each individual couple. Once they see the high quality of craftsmanship involved and the attention to detail that we provide, our couples walk away from the meeting knowing that their wedding stationery is in good hands and all they need to do is wait excitedly for their proof samples to be ready for them to see
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be organised and delegate!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Our couples would be invited to our design studio where they would get a chance to see the whole collection of invitations, table planners and the rest of the matching stationery. We would then discuss their requirements and I would put together a bespoke package tailored for each couple as each couple has slightly different needs. I would then send them all the wording suggestions from the wedding insert to gift poems to help them get started. Once all details have been approved I would produce a proof sample for our couple to approve and make any changes if necessary. Once I get the thumbs up, I then proceed to produce the invites and other stationery. For couples who are unable to meet me in person due to distance, all correspondences are dealt with via email and telephone and proof samples are sent to them for approval, which has always worked very well.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
I would say the table planner. As guests arrive at the venue, they would see the seating plan as the first piece of stationery before they enter.
What is your best seller?
Our cheque book and wallet style invitations seem to be the most popular this year. Having the extra information inserts/cards put together neatly with the invite is appealing to most of our couples
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Giving the added hand crafted touch makes our designs more special to our couples. Also, having Swarovski crystals always add that sparkle and glamour to our invitations
