Love My Dress calligrapher

“…The divine calligraphy was provided by expert wedding calligrapher Claire Gould of Calligraphy for Weddings, whose work I’m a huge fan of. I love how Claire has used white and gold ink on plum coloured paper, it adds such a sense of opulence and luxury to this set of wedding stationery…”
