Customised wedding invitations and wedding decorations

Your relationship, your story and your wedding is different to everyone else’s. 

Celebrate that difference with original hand-painted stationery and decorations. 

Every decoration, every invitation is ever-so-slightly different, reflecting the uniqueness of you, your wedding and your guests. 

This allows you to plan how your design story unfolds across your event, weaving a gorgeously cohesive journey for your guests, from the first invitation through to the subtle touches on every table.

Our stories are all unique. Common threads may connect us but how those threads are joined together is always a little different. They say love is the greatest story of all time and love is certainly an amazing story worth celebrating. 

I believe that your wedding is a time for you to tell your story - to share your passion and love with your family and friends. Your day should be a reflection of your personality and the journey you have taken as a couple. 

My role is to listen to your story, to understand it and interpret it in a way that can then be experienced by everyone. This is the beauty of a bespoke design service and I look forward to working with you to create something special and amazing that showcases your unique story.

Design inspired by emotion

My wedding design briefs often start with a feeling. An intangible emotion. An expression of yourself and your partner and your love story. It can feel impossible to put into words. 

The central theme might be a flower, or a place, a symbol, a shared passion you want to infuse throughout your wedding.

That’s my challenge: to create the perfect artistic interpretation of your brief, and help you create your perfect wedding. 

Be inspired by my favourite examples of wedding decorations and invitations here.

I believe in the moment. That moment that captures you and entrances you but it is fleeting and is gone and never recaptured as other new moments sweep in and capture you instead and you are left just with that faint trace memory of feeling you had with that moment - in all these invisible layers that make up your depth as a person but are impossible to pinpoint

A memorable, meaningful moment in time

Your wedding will be whirlwind. A beautiful flurry of emotions and laughter and tears and snatches of heartfelt moments that spark and disappear like fireworks. 

Let me capture those moments, those feelings. Let me build layers of meaning into every piece – layers of ideas, textures and brushstrokes. 

Let’s talk about the designs, decorations and invitations I can create for your wedding.

A note on wedding stylists

If you have a wedding stylist or planner, I can work in harmony with their vision. I often collaborate with stylists to create a wholistic design journey throughout your whole event.

If you love my styling then I can help you develop the brief for your stylist or event planner to incorporate my designs or for you to follow yourself if you are taking a DIY approach to setting up your perfect wedding.
