Bless us all,
who gather here
The loving family
I hold dear
on earth compares with
and every path
will bring me back
from where I roam
With beautiful images by the fabulous Melissa Beattie Photography

It’s been an incredible year for calligraphy and for this little business – I love collaborating with new people, and Melissa Beattie is one of the most amazing wedding photographers I’ve ever known. This wonderful shoot was styled by Louise from B.Loved and Styled by Louise, and featured on top wedding blog Elizabeth Anne Designs.
Stationery was 100% handwritten, with Saunders watercolour card and an apricot ink. I tied the invitations with delicate metallic gold thread, matching the fine hairlines in the lettering.
Melissa and Louise asked me to write a muslin backdrop in apricot ink, with the quote “The leaves are falling like they’re falling in love with the ground” – perfectly autumnal.
A simple welcome board was written in brush calligraphy – one of my favourite pieces!
The entire shoot was beautiful, and this is all because of the amazing team chosen by Melissa and Louise. The magical location, Healey Barn, is a perfect setting for an autumn wedding and I love how it was styled for the day. The gorgeous bride with her boho dress and fabulous bouquet makes this shoot one of the loveliest I’ve ever been involved in. Thank you so much, Louise and Melissa!
