Hi! My name is Claire Gould. Welcome to By Moon & Tide, my calligraphy studio by the sea on the edge of the beautiful English Lake District.
I’ve enjoyed working full time as a calligrapher since 2005, writing everything imaginable from wedding invitations to table plans, marriage certificates to poems and heartfelt wedding vows.
I’d LOVE to write something for you, whether you’re planning an intimate celebration for 10 guests or a huge party for 200 of your nearest and dearest. No project is too large or too small – and I’m always happy to answer any questions you may have about calligraphy for your wedding.
Most of my customers are brides and grooms looking for elegant, modern calligraphy and unique wedding stationery, but I also work with wedding planners and stylists, local businesses and national brands.
Previous clients have included the BBC, Kirstie Allsopp and Louis Vuitton as well as celebrity brides and grooms!
Here you’ll find elegant calligraphy wedding invitation suites, colourful place names and calligraphy poem art prints, all in my most popular designs.
All of the items in my Etsy shop can be personalised with your own wordings – ordering is really simple.
1. Browse and choose an invitation design you love from the collection
2. Order as many as you need – add to your basket and follow the instructions
3. Send us your details for personalisation using the ‘notes to seller’ box at the checkout.
Between us we’ll make sure your wording and personalised details are just perfect (via direct message / email chat).
My online shop also has unique calligraphy gifts for special occasions: handwritten and printed calligraphy poems, wedding readings and family tree prints. Any of these items can be personalised or adapted especially for you.
If you’d like to commission something unique for your wedding, then I’d love to help.
I work with couples all over the world to create beautiful, artisan wedding stationery with a personal touch you won’t find anywhere else.
I specialise in luxe, handmade paper invitations and organic calligraphy lettering styles and work with hand-dyed silk ribbons, elegant gold threads, quality wax seals and stamps to create bespoke wedding stationery with a luxurious, unique finish.
Starting with your ideas for colours, papers and styling elements, I can design modern calligraphy themed stationery to perfectly suit the style and tone of your wedding, so every element from your Save the Dates to your seating plan is not only beautiful and unique, but perfectly represents your personalities and the spirit of your day.
