I am delighted to present my Bespoke Wedding Stationery collection. Designed exclusively for you, every design is personally created to reflect the individuality of your wedding. Perfectly co-ordinated with your colours and themes, this is a unique opportunity to have the wedding stationery you have always dreamt of.

Each item is created by hand one at a time, with individually handwritten painted illustrations.

The stylish inserted pages are printed in a coordinating font to complement the cover design. The names of your guests may then be elegantly handwritten on every invitation, envelope and place card for the complete finishing touch. 

Your seating plan may also receive the same special attention. 

Prices start from £2.50 for an invitation. Contact me for more prices and how to order. Enquiries are welcome.

I love combining wedding calligraphy with watercolour illustrations. My studio overlooks my flourishing cottage garden. It's very inspiring! Most of the floral watercolours you see in my designs are paintings of flowers from the garden. I can't resist bringing them indoors to paint, whatever the time of year!"


Floral motifs
Adorn your stationery with a hand painted flower from your bouquet or bridesmaids' posy. Feature an array of flowers, wheat, leaves or grasses. The Seasonal Wedding Themes section has more flora and fauna ideas. Visit the Portfolio page for an inspiring selection of motifs.

A wide range of lace trimmings are available in ivory or white to decorate your stationery. For a truly personal design you may use your own bridal lace. Nottingham lace is perfect for this nostalgic Victorian theme. The sepia script in Gothic and trailing ivy are set against an ivory parchment card.

It's all in the details.  
I've always been passionate about period styles. Historical, vintage or shabby chic, they all influence my stationery. I've worked on so many period films and TV productions over the years, including Poirot, Sleepy Hollow, Sharpe, Mansfield Park, Bleak House..... and just recently on the latest film of Anna Karenina."

Whether a small, intimate wedding or a larger traditional affair, there are stationery items available for every step of the way. From save-the-dates, invitations, orders of service, to a wide range of accessories for the reception.

Enjoy browsing through my latest collection and remember, I love to talk! Get in touch with any thoughts and I'll translate your requirements into a design unique to you."
