New collection launch for 2017 weddings October 21 2016, 0 Comments
After a very busy summer, we are excited to announce the launch of our new collection for 2017 weddings. Inspired by bold florals and modern typography, we hope that our new collection has something for everyone, from the classic and traditional couple, to the modern and quirky.
Introducing, Alice, Charlie, Harlow and Louisa...
The Alice range is a modern twist on a classic botanical design and looks great in a wide range of colours. Choose one of the 72 colours on our swatch card for the graphic details and grey, navy or black for the text. Or if you are struggling to settle on one colour, mix and match the colours on your invitations, rsvp and information cards. In the image below we have chosen Wisteria and Almond, with navy text.
Our new Charlie range features bold, fun typography and is available in a whopping 2556 colour combinations! This design is perfect for fun loving couples and has a youthful feel to it with a mixture of typefaces and cartoon-like graphics.
Pick two colours from our swatch chart (shown here in duck egg blue and candy pink) and create your own unique colour combination. We understand that is difficult to decide on the colours when there is such a wide selection on offer, so we are happy to provide you with your wedding stationery proofs in a couple of colour combinations to help you make your final decision.
Our new Harlow collection features hand painted bold abstract florals and modern typography. Team your wedding invitations with black envelopes for a striking look. Lined envelopes are available on request.
Our Louisa design is a modern take on a timeless design. These invitations will appeal to couples who are looking for a classic but stylish design. As with the Alice collection, they are available in 72 colours with the option of grey, black or navy text. Mix it up with brown kraft envelopes, or stay traditional with matching white envelopes.
All the new collections will be available as full suites, including 'on the day' stationery and thank you cards. Visit our sample pack page to order samples of our new designs, and as an added bonus, you will receive a 10% discount code for your future wedding stationery order.

Dan and Stewart - 29th August 2015 October 29 2015, 0 Comments
After a busy and exciting summer, we can just about catch our breath to share with you a custom design we have worked on this year.
In April we were commissioned by Dan and Stewart to work on the design of their wedding invitations and stationery, for their wedding in August at The Chainstore, London. The brief was to create a suite of wedding stationery that felt unique and reflected them in some way, with a colour palette of navy blue and grey, and a mix of vintage and modern fonts.
After discussing ideas with Dan over email, Kerry produced a series of mood boards for discussion, which included various typographical, layout and monogram options. Dan and Stewart chose to use a monogram which featured a bow tie and necktie (as this is what they would be wearing on the day) on the front of their wedding invitations and a separate wedding date logo on the reverse. These were then also carried through the ‘on the day’ stationery and below are the final results!
‘On the Day’
Dan and Stewart wanted to provide each guest with their own personalised napkin wrap which displayed their name and meal, wrapped neatly around their napkins finished with a monogram sticker. We also designed for each table, a booklet that contained mini written profiles on each guest. We’re not sure how Dan and Stewart found the time to write a 32 page book in the run up to the wedding, but it was well worth the time and effort, as the booklets were a lovely personal touch.
To welcome the guests, we designed a double sided board to display the order of the day, and a message from Dan and Stewart. This then doubled up as the table plan for the wedding breakfast with all the seating info on the reverse.
It's such a joy to see how everything turned out on the day as we don't often get to see the professional wedding photos. The venue looked stunning and most importantly of all, it looked to be an extremely happy, laughter and love filled day.
Congratulations Dan and Stewart! It's been an absolute pleasure xxx

Navy and Red Bespoke Design April 09 2015, 0 Comments
Rachel contacted us late last year looking for wedding stationery to compliment their navy blue, gold and red wedding theme. We adapted our Frankie collection by changing the font colour and incorporated a heart motif into the design. With the addition of a navy belly band and cardinal red ribbon, the invitation packages suit Rachel and Andrew's wedding theme perfectly and the luxuriously thick envelopes in imperial blue add the finishing touch.
We can amend the colours on most of our designs to match a specific wedding colour theme. If you like one of our designs, but would prefer an alternative colour please get in touch to discuss your request.
