I create luxury handmade Wedding Invitations and Stationery in my studio near Dumfries. I work with busy couples all over Scotland and help them sort out their invitations from the comfort of their sofa, with zero stress. I want to help you create a personalised, colourful and coordinated look for your wedding. ​ You get beautifully tactile, matching stationery, with a modern twist that will WOW your guests. I have over 100 colours to choose from in my range of card, ribbon and handmade wax seals, so I’m confident you’ll find your wedding colour scheme. I offer online consultations and have a full range of colour swatches I can send out to you. This way you can be safe in the knowledge that your invites will reflect your personality and set the tone for your wedding.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Modern, wax seals, luxurious, personalised, handmade

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm most proud of the range of colours I offer. You get to choose the colour combos that best match your wedding colour palette! You can go bold and bright or classic and neutral; whatever represents your style best!

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

Contact your suppliers as early as possible! It's never too early to book.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once you have booked with me you'll receive colour swatches to help match your wedding colour scheme in the comfort of your own home. I don't need to know exact numbers or styles until shortly before your production slot. I provide a digital and a hardcopy proof in your exact colours and wordings for you to approve before I ask for further payment. Your finished stationery usually arrives 2 to 3 weeks later.

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

I think Invitations are the most important piece of wedding stationery as they set the tone for your special day. They are happy post for all your guests!

What is your best seller?

My AILSA pocketfold invitation is my most popular as it has lots of inserts to tell guests all that they need to know about your wedding!

How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?

I add romance to my stationery by allowing it to be fully personalised! By choosing the colour schemes, fonts and wordings it is a true reflection of your wedding day style!
