Hand Drawn Maps for your wedding day – the perfect personalised keepsake

Hiya! Did you see Stephanie and Michael’s Rushton Hall wedding on the blog the other day? I loved it to pieces, it was such an elegant and charming day. I always read my couples’ wedding reports carefully and make sure I give you lovely readers as many links to suppliers as I can – and the one which stood out for me from that wedding was Hand Drawn Maps. I instantly bookmarked the link Stephanie gave me, and got in touch with designer Lydia, who makes these lovely maps all herself – aren’t they amazing?

Stephanie and Michael told me, “All [our invitations and stationery were] cre­ated by the won­der­ful Lydia of Hand Drawn Maps. We had a bespoke motif with our ini­tials (our par­ents had this put on cham­pagne glasses for the day!) and she incor­po­rated the rose theme into all the sta­tionery.”

“She drew an amaz­ing map of the local area with some lovely per­sonal touches like the chick­ens in our back gar­den – as well as send­ing with the invites, we also had it blown up on the day. Our favourite item from her was our table names – all the places we love in Corn­wall on a bril­liant map show­ing every­thing that is spe­cial to us about those places.”

Lydia very kindly sent me some pictures of her maps to show you. I hope you love them as much as I do!

    Such a great idea! I recently attended a wedding for a best friend of mine and she had used hand-drawn maps to direct guests to her Somerset home and wedding venue. It made the venue easy to find and given we were running a tad late, the map saved us from missing the ceremony all together! x

  • These are amazing…so whimsical and fun!
