What is your most memorable wedding?
My wedding of course ;-) but not just for the romatic reasons. My day really helped me to understand what a bride looks for, how the planning process really works and what becomes important leading up to the day and beyond. It was a fantastic opportunity to dress the whole venue with my designs and learn about the business too!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
handcrafted, perfected, intricate, beautiful, vintage
What about your business are you most proud of?
I do a little dance every time a happy couple contacts me, I feel so proud that my designs are liked but what makes me even more proud is the messages of thanks I receive. All my designs are hand drawn, from scratch and then tailored for brides and grooms to be. I am super proud of the personal service I provide.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have Fun!!!! Take a step back and remember what is important.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We painted 125 toy dinosaurs with toy safe copper spray paint and tied hand written place card tags around their necks - these went down really well with our guests who took them home for the kids (or themselves!).
Describe your typical process with a couple.
When a couple contact me I like to offer further information by email, phone or face to face over a cuppa. I know how busy life can be and fitting in meetings with suppliers outside of work and other commitments can be tough. I like to make the process as easy as possible and for you to experience the quality of my designs so I make the process as visual as possible with samples and moodboards. Once I know more about you and your day the process is simple, I create a draft design for you and email it within 7 days. You return amends and I send you a second draft within 72 hours. Following approval of your final proof your design is printed professionally and delivered to you within 7 days. The process can take as little as 2/3 weeks depending on your requirements, bespoke designs are hand drawn for you require an additional 7 days.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
Your invitation and your RSVP! Let your guests know about your day and ask them to reply so you know how many people to cater for.
What is your best seller?
My purple floral design, it features hand painted vintage flowers with some sketched illustrations giving it a modern twist.
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Personalisation - anything that reflects you and your partner!
