I was thrilled to be asked to take part in a styled shoot with wedding creatives in Kent recently. The concept was exciting: a bridal shoot with a haunting story of timeless romance – and the plan for the day meant lots of wonderfully soft colours and gently flowing calligraphy.

I designed and lettered an invitation suite on the palest grey stationery: a glorious dove grey with ink a shade or two lighter to give the perfect contrast and create a soft look.

Table stationery was simple: place names written in a delicate and modern script, using only first names and allowing the letters to be drawn out for effect – my favourite calligraphy style for 2016.

The star of the show as far as my lettering goes was the love letter – a romantic quote from Wuthering Heights. Again the pale grey stationery is perfect for evoking a romance which lasts for eternity; the letters have a characterful slant and the ink is barely there, as if our love letter had been read a thousand, thousand times.
