Calligraphy for Weddings (by Claire Gould)
My other love is Calligraphy for Weddings; my top UK calligraphy studio specialising in creative wedding calligraphy. I have been a full time calligrapher since 2005; writing thousands of wedding invitation envelopes, place cards and hundreds of seating plans.
Ordering your wedding calligraphy from me!
I’d love to write your wedding calligraphy for you. Send me an email anytime and ask for a sample or let me know what you’d like for your wedding day.
Most couples order place name tags with calligraphy – the most popular styles are my manilla tags with white calligraphy and rustic twine, or my paper rose cards with black calligraphy. All are available in my Etsy shop at www.Etsy.com/shop/CalligraphyStore
Affordable calligraphy escort cards
Any of my place name cards can be turned into escort cards by just adding a table number on to the card. And prices start from £1.10 per name! Calligraphy is always more affordable than you might think.
I couldn’t wish for a more wonderful career – being able to spend my days writing beautiful calligraphy on couples’ wedding invitations and stationery, working with top UK letterpress designers, creating something amazing for brides and grooms to share with their wedding guests.
The life of a wedding calligrapher
Every commission I take on is a delight; my little studio by the seaside on the western edge of the Lake District is my pride and joy. Writing beautiful things, imagining my calligraphy on wedding tables and getting lovely feedback from my brides and grooms – well, it beats any other job I could dream of doing.
I’d like to say a huge thank you to Karen Flower and to all of the wonderful wedding suppliers who collaborated on this woodland wedding inspiration shoot which was featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog in 2013.
