What is your most memorable wedding?
I was asked to make wedding stationery for a czech republic wedding and all the stationery was in czech, now that was a challenge, but I did it! If you are looking for something different, I love a challenge.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unique handmade quality stationery that is creative and special.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Building my stationery business for the last 9 years from nothing, which now allows me to do a job that I love every day. Seeing the couples fabulous reactions when they see their finished products!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have fun with your themes and colours. Having a guest list sorted for the numbers of invitations etc. that you will need. It really helps me provide a quotation for your total order. Order all stationery items together and receive a package discount.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Couples that give personalised cards to parents and the wedding party.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
They would come for an initial consultation where we will discuss styles colours etc. We design together and proofs are then made ready to be signed off where the couple will be given their actual stationery proof. Keeping couples informed at every stage is important to me.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The invitation, I think personally, as it is a small glimpse of what the wedding day will be like.
What is your best seller?
My handcrafted special pocket style invitations.
What is the most innovative delivery method you have come across?
Me delivering all the wedding stationery to the venue as the bride had no room in her car for the table plan and easel and all the other bits. It was lovely to be able to see all the items co-ordinated and coming together on the day.
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Lace is always a romantic touch for any stationery. Designs change every year and it's nice to see how I can design something that little bit different.
