If you’re looking for unique, hand made calligraphy invitations 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.

The calligraphy invitations above were gold ink on torn edge art paper, teamed with silk ribbon and palest ivory wax seals, and combined printed elements and hand written finishing. International wedding photographer Nicole Colwell Photography teamed up with stylists Lily & Sage for this breathtaking inspiration, which was featured on fine art wedding blog Wedding Sparrow.

To order a bespoke wedding invitation suite, just get in touch with your ideas and we’ll have a lovely chat on email about your wedding style and ideas! The process of ordering wedding stationery should be exciting, stress-free and reassuring. I want you to feel like you’re in safe hands.

At first we’ll chat about colours, the style of your wedding, and which bits and pieces you’d like to order. I will send you a few designs to pick and choose from, and we can adapt these to suit your requirements exactly.

Some of my wedding stationery incorporates hand calligraphy; other designs are made digitally with beautiful fonts.

I can create everything for you from Save the Dates through to on-the-day wedding signs, or just a few bits and pieces if you would rather keep your stationery list simple!

Please do email me for a chat: I’d love to hear from you!

I sourced textured blue cotton rag paper for this unique wedding invitation suite. The ink is delicate gold in a loose modern style. This editorial was featured on worldwide wedding blog Magnolia Rouge. Photographer Kathryn Hopkins explains her inspiration for the shoot, and our concepts behind the stationery suite, beautifully: “I feel very passionate about designing around a location, whether that is a styled shoot or a wedding…  Natural textures with hand torn edges mimic the raw, untouched location.

This stationery suite is simple, with white ink on dove grey torn edge paper and a matching hand addressed envelope. The calligraphy on the invitation and envelope is playful and modern. These images are from Florida wedding photographer Lara Rios, who asked me to send some stationery pieces across the pond for editorial use. Lara’s fine art images of the calligraphy are wonderful!

I love to create darker, more dramatic and alternative wedding calligraphy. These pieces were gold ink on textured black paper with a torn edge, finished with gold thread and a wax seal stamp. I designed an invitation and envelope, place name cards and wedding vows in calligraphy, as well as a love letter on vintage paper. This editorial was featured on international wedding blog Hochzeitsguide. The blog’s own introduction to the piece highlights the significance of beautiful bespoke wedding stationery: “A royal seal on meaningful stationery and imperial flower arrangements in the arms of a princess – imperial bridal inspirations could not by more graceful. Golden calligraphy invites us to the social event of the year, sealing the English devolution of the crown.”

The stationery was designed with calligraphy fonts with elegant spacing and a sophisticated modern vibe. The styling is contemporary and minimal, bringing elegance and sophistication to modern calligraphy design. This editorial was captured by the wonderful Oobaloos Photography in Cheltenham, and featured on top UK wedding blog English Wedding.

With breathtaking floral illustration and gold calligraphy ink, this is one of my favourite wedding invitations. The look is whimsical and romantic, perfect for a relaxed summer wedding. This bespoke stationery piece is a collaboration with the wonderfully talented Welsh illustrator and designer Amy Swann. It appeared in an editorial feature on Rock My Wedding, another top UK wedding blog. We have since developed a printed version of this invitation, which is available to buy. Please contact me for details.

This was a modern, playful and dark wedding invitation suite created especially for an editorial photoshoot, which was featured on English Wedding. The paper is lush and almost a charcoal black; the edges are torn, and the calligraphy is in softly shining, metallic gold gouache.
