Organic and elegant… bespoke calligraphy in a rustic inspiration shoot for boho brides

Hello beautiful 🙂

I don’t often share my own work on the pages of the English Wedding Blog, but with instructions from lovely Charlotte at Eden & Eve to ‘shout from the rooftops’ about our styled shoot I simply can’t resist. Today’s feature is a little one focusing on my calligraphy – to see the full shoot you need to head over to the fabulous Rock My Wedding blog (do!) Wedding Bohemia at the Old Mill

Are you looking for a special, handcrafted touch for your wedding? Something two steps across the border into more unusual territory? Something your guests will admire, and touch, and talk about, and then take home and put on their mantelpiece?

Then step this way and get yourself some of these charming table plan cards, place names and handwritten wedding signs… they’re all for sale in my Not On The High Street shop:

Handwritten calligraphy tags on rustic, torn paper strips £25

Tie these striking rustic wedding tags to favours, display tables, bottles or jars – or even use them as place settings! Beautifully handwritten in modern calligraphy with room for up to 3 words per tag

The tags look fabulous with a rustic wedding style – they’re perfect for an outdoor celebration or a teepee wedding. The rustic, hand torn tags can be clipped, pegged or pinned to your display – the images use punched holes with rustic twine to give you an example of how to use the tags.

Place settings and bespoke calligraphy signage from £25

Order these beautifully handmade and handwritten rustic calligraphy place name cards for your wedding or party, along with bespoke signs for your guest book, display tables etc….

Your guests will adore these wonderful little rustic place name cards. Written by hand with traditional calligraphy tools on luxury watercolour cards, they’re quirky and cute, and perfect for a country wedding celebration.

The rustic, hand torn cards can be placed on napkins or plates, or even incorporated into an escort card display: simply write table numbers on the reverse and peg them to a display wall!

Bohemian wedding table plan cards £25

Create a gorgeous display for your wedding guests to find their seats in style! Written by hand with traditional calligraphy tools on luxury watercolour cards, these table plan cards have room for up to 10 names each.

The rustic, hand torn cards can be clipped, pegged or pinned to your display – the images use hoops of herbs to give you an example of how to use the cards. The price is per card and includes calligraphy for up to 10 guests (first names only).


It’s a delight to share with you the sort of images which have even the super wedding bloggers at Rock My Wedding swooning and sharing… by lovely James Melia Photographers. See the full shoot here:

    Wow! Your calligraphy is truly amazing. I can’t even do that. Haha. It looks like england_hand_dbregular font I found in One Heart Wedding website and the Edwardian Script in MS. They can make a simple wedding invitation or wedding favor special and elegant most especially if you’ll have that designed in your wedding decoration. You can make money out of this actually. 🙂
