breathtaking . . . I could not be more pleased
"Thought it would be romantic to have the words of a song framed for my girlfriend which the singer Sam Baker had sang to us in a private video. I'd always loved calligraphy so I contacted several calligraphers with my idea. Denise was just so professional and genuinely interested in doing this for me and her sample ideas were perfect. The work was completed in the requested timescales and I could not be more pleased. It's a breathtaking piece that looks even better framed. I would not hesitate in recommending Denise and can't wait to find my next job for her."

truly stunning . . . beautiful writing
"A truly stunning piece of work by Denise - a lyric sheet scroll in such beautiful writing, made the perfect first anniversary gift. My wife absolutely loved it and it was such a unique gift. Denise was perfect from the very first point of contact, with helpful suggestions and was even able to create this wonderful piece of work in a very challenging timeframe. I would whole heartedly recommend this service which was first class from start to finish.

Many thanks again Denise - we really did love the work you created."

superb craftsmanship . . . fantastic communication
"Denise created 90 name tags for a wedding and the writing is simply beautiful - the tags were quite small so Denise judged exactly the right amount of flourishes to make the names beautiful but readable in the restricted space. 

Denise has fantastic communication, replying quickly to emails and giving all the help and advice needed in an efficient way. She also went far out of her way on my request to cater for a tight timeline for which I'm extremely grateful! 

I highly recommend Denise for her efficiency, friendliness, and superb craftsmanship."

beautiful . . . accommodating and helpful
"Denise created a beautiful marriage certificate for our Quaker wedding. The script is stunning, and it is something we will treasure forever. Denise was really accommodating and helpful, and our certificate was delivered earlier than expected, despite our being a bit slow to confirm the wording! We would highly recommend to anyone."

amazing   nothing was too much trouble
"What can I say other than Denise was amazing. We had 200 of everything and the first looked just as perfect as the last. Nothing was too much trouble - I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Denise for making this part of the wedding planning so seamless.”

prompt  creative  the extra mile
"After a search of various calligraphy artists I decided on Denise as she was the friendliest and politest of the responses I received. I asked for 2 poems for my 13th wedding anniversary. Not only was Denise prompt and creative, she was also extremely accommodating when there was a query with one of the poems.

I thoroughly recommend Denise, when you are looking for a calligraphy artist who is willing to go the extra mile to make your memories special, she's your lady!"

fantastic  over the moon
"I was looking for ideas for something to give my daughter and son-in-law on their first wedding anniversary being Paper led me to think about calligraphy. I found Denise's website and emailed her with my request ('The Owl and The Pussycat' as this was a reading at the ceremony).

Throughout Denise has been very prompt with her replies and communication and also very helpful with suggestions regarding drawings and colours to complete the scroll. I was expecting "delivery two weeks as stated" but from my first enquiry to delivery it was five days. Fantastic and a real bonus for me. Although I personally haven't seen the scroll but my daughter has sent me photos. They are both over the moon with it and so delighted.

Thank you so much Denise. I'll be back!”

a pleasure to deal with
"Denise was firstly a pleasure to deal with. Quick at responding to queries and very helpful overall in coming up with ideas to make the end-product that much more special. Once received, I was more than happy with the results and the level of quality that Denise put into her work. Thanks again Denise. I shall definitely recommend your services to others and use them myself should the need arise in the future."

perfect  awe-inspiring accuracy  look no further
“Having had invitations printed for two parties, I found my inelegant scrawl would simply not do when it came to addressing them. Denise came to my rescue. She immediately made time to see me, advised on different scripts for hand delivered and posting (we don’t want any invitations to become lost in the post) and completed almost 100 invitations, in two different scripts with breathtaking speed and awe inspiring accuracy.

Having such beautiful scripts on the envelopes made delivering the invitations all the more thrilling, with almost everyone commenting on how beautifully they were addressed. I was immediately pounced on by a colleague planning a wedding, begging me for Denise’s details. I made the introduction and gather Denise’s enhancements made the wedding day all the more perfect.

Denise’s talent is complimented by her absolute loveliness. Kind and softly spoken, she helped make my signature birthday all the more special, even providing last minute envelopes in double quick time. I cannot recommend her highly enough. It is worth having a party just for the opportunity to adorn it with Denise’s beautiful scripts.

Look no further, you have found your calligrapher.”

brilliant from start to finish
"I recently asked Denise to copy a letter for me, as a wedding thank you gift for my mother in law. Denise was brilliant from start to finish, advising on the best calligraphy to use. The final result was absolutely beautiful, and my mother in law now has the letter in a frame. I will be using Denise in the future, as I am a poet and her work will bring life to my poems."

brilliant captured every single wish
"We just wanted to thank Denise for the amazing personal service she provided us right from our first order for our regency gold theme, save the dates, down to our thank you cards.

She captured every single wish of ours, and turned it into amazing, original invitations, and one of our personal favourites is our Order of Service with ecompassed a watercolour design of our church we got married in.

It was just delightful every time our samples came through the post. Stephan and I loved opening them and seeing the lovely calligraphy and amazing watercolour to match our theme. In fact, we were so delighted with them that we also asked Denise to design our guest book and two little poem cards, and our guests complimented on each of those, a "work of art" as one of our guests mentioned.

Denise is not only a brilliant calligrapher and artist, but she was also very considerate of our needs. If we needed anything tweaked or added, she would have no problem incorporating every single one of them. Our original and unique monogram with our initials entwined with our gold flowers around it was so lovely we decided to have it on our wedding cake, which again was in keeping with our Regency theme.

We can't be thankful enough, as she played such an instrumental part in setting the tone of our wedding right from the start, and would have no problem recommending her to anyone."

a delight beautifully illustrated
"Working with Denise on our commission to personalise and dedicate a very
special album for our our son's 18th Birthday was a delight.
I felt I was working with a friend such was Denise's level of care and
attention to detail in developing our ideas.

Denise thoughtfully interpreted our suggestions whilst remaining true to
our original concept and produced sample work for my consideration. The
finished result is the most beautifully illustrated calligraphy together
with an exquisitely painted card.

Denise gave us a very personal and yet highly professional service,
producing delicately detailed work of the highest artistic standard which perfectly reflects the message we wished to convey and our son now has a completely unique
and highly personal memento to mark his coming of age."

unique amazing wonderful personal service
"We asked Denise to design our Wedding Invitations because we had seen her
work from samples we ordered and knew she would deliver a design that was
original, creative and unique.

Each individual invite was hand painted with a Thistle and Rose to
resemble our Scottish & English theme Wedding.

The cards stood out and looked amazing. We had loads of compliments from our
wedding guests that we also asked Denise to design our wedding card placements too.

I was so thrilled with everything from the design, her sound advice to her
wonderful, personal service.

The final point is she is just very easy to work with and at a very
competitive rate."

"After searching the internet for days for invitations that
were suitable, I was delighted to find Denise's website. The
invitations were perfect, exactly what we wanted, we have also received
several comments from our guests who love them. The price was very

with the end result.'
