Fabulous street art wedding stationery by Olive and Reid

So many couples spend weeks or months looking for a wedding invitation that’s just a little different – and the secret is to find a bespoke design. Simple! I love discovering new designs and getting to know stationery designers, and meeting Kate from Olive and Reid was just lovely.

The best stationery designers are those whose personalities shine in their work: the truly creative will showcase invitations and stationery which are unique and full of character. Kate’s street art wedding stationery made my heart sing: the combination of bold colours, stencil-style street art and modern calligraphy is divine!

Kate writes a great blog about her experiences learning calligraphy and she came to meet me at The Handmade Fair last month – her enthusiasm for calligraphy and design is infectious!

Established by Kate Reid in 2014, a south west London-based calligrapher, Olive & Reid is an evolving place focused on the artistry of words through modern calligraphy and hand lettering. More than a blog or a design studio, Olive & Reid is where Kate shares her own calligraphy design, promotes the work of other stationery desginers and showcases UK-based calligraphers and lettering artists’ work. has been my favourite read this summer!
