I'd like to wish Emma and Bryan a special wedding day tomorrow and a very happy future together.
We produced all their stationery for them, including handmade wedding invitations, place names, table plan and table names. They chose the Leonardo collection in honey gold. Great for a winter wedding!
This is what they had to say ..... "A seamless service from start to finish. We are both thrilled with the wedding stationery and look forward to the finished effect on our tables for the 20th December. Thank you Elaine". Emma and Bryan
Saw these gorgeous little Christmas trees on cute boxes, even though they're a Mini Tree Advent Calendar, I thought the idea would make fantastic wedding favours.
Labels personalized with your guest names and coordinating with your handmade wedding invitations....chocolates, cake or sweets could be added in the boxes to make an interesting favour at a festive wedding.
There is a changing collection of antique, vintage and recycled pieces,well chosen and beautifully displayed - from jewellery, handmade stationery (but no handmade wedding stationery!!!) to interior items and books.
It is definitely worth a visit if you are in Nottingham and has one of the most beautiful websites I've ever seen.
You’ll also be warmly welcomed by Pip and her adorable Basset Hound, Mulberry.
We been working on some rather sophisticated stationery for a wedding this month and thought they deserved a mention....
(above) These are a sneak preview of them in the early stages before all the tables are added to the table plan and finished, place names are sorted into individual tables and bagged together, order of service need bows to be tied and table names finished off.
(above) These are the table names finished... very elegant you must admit?
We worked with our client on her handmade wedding invitations, information and reply cards prior to her reception items. She chose the Kidman collection in black. I will post some more of her stationery soon.
We've just finished these tiny weenie place names for a wedding this December.
Measuring only 40mm x 25mm, they are smaller than our normal place names and are so cute. Our customer asked if we could design them to match her Kidman handmade wedding invitations and to fit perfectly into baubles she has bought for her wedding tables. They'll look something like this when fully assembled...
Don't you agree, they are perfect for a Winter Christmas wedding?
We've just produced a sample pack using the Munroe collection in Teal and thought they deserved a mention.
These are the results...

They make a very strong statement and excellent for a beach or summer wedding. All our handmade wedding invitations coordinate with our table plans, table names/numbers, menus, order of service and place names. We even have printed napkin holders with the Bride and Grooms names printed as well.
If you're lucky enough to use August as your wedding venue, don't forget your reception items - table plan, place names, table names/numbers and napkin holders. We can match any of these items to your handmade wedding invitations for a coordinated look.
All your handmade wedding invitations are posted, guests have replied and so now is the time to be thinking of place names for your wedding day.
With an abundance of leaves at this time of year....Autumn is definitely with us....what about this unexpected and sophisticated idea?
Bring some nature to your tables by adding dried leaves with beautiful calligraphy written guest names. What's also great .... if you make a mistake, collect some more leaves, dry them and re-write! Photo by Ali Harper /Styling by Joy Thigpen / Calligraphy by Meagan Tidwell
We would always advise you to order an extra 4 or 5 blank invitations in case guests are unable to attend your wedding. You can then write the extra guest names on the dotted line provided and post straight away.
If you haven't decided on your wedding date, why not make it the 31st of October - Halloween!! Here are some 'on the day' reception ideas that don't include witches and bats... just a minimum orange ribbon mixed with black.
spooky chocolate wedding favours
and place names If you are planning your wedding then don't forget our handmade wedding invitations that can coordinate with any of your themes, dreams and colours. Have a fun Halloween night!!!
The chef's table seats just 18 guests and is designed for you to watch your meal being prepared by a Michelin starred chef. On Sunday, and having time off from producing handmade wedding invitations, I was one of the lucky 18 people to eat there. Chef, Daniel Clifford from Midsummer House in Cambridge produced a meal that I will never forget....pure heaven on a plate!
If you are after something unusual and exemplary - what an amazing venue it would make for a small intimate wedding. The setting and the calibre of the food are so special that your guests would undoubtedly leave very impressed.
