I found my way into the world of weddings via my penchant for old pens, bottles of ink and love of everything papery. Who knew my love for beautiful lettering would bring me to the pages of the English Wedding Blog, and be my introduction to such a creative and exciting industry? Ten years since the launch of Calligraphy for Weddings, I stumble across my lettering on some of the hottest wedding blogs in the world – and I love working on every single commission and project I’m asked to be a part of.
I’m currently obsessed by the fabulous Taylor & Porter – whose visual storytelling is some of the most exquisite I’ve ever seen. Creating stationery for their styled shoots in 2015 was one of my business highlights of all time; I can only dream of writing more for the attention of their loveliest of lenses in the coming months.
All of the pieces I write for styled shoots are designed for YOU – the couple whose wedding will follow the gentle suggestions you find in the shoots. The handwritten menus, carefully scripted invitations and elegantly scribed envelopes are for you to buy from my Etsy store. Every piece is an idea; every layout is a starting point for the discussions we’ll have as we design your dream wedding stationery.
The styling for these images was by Lake District wedding stylist Emma at Tebbey & Co. I adore Emma’s approach to wedding styling – her instinct for a beautiful tablescape is second to none. It is always a wonderful adventure designing for Emma, and this collection for ‘Echoes at Enys’ shows an graceful curation of the most enchanting wedding details. The elegant colour scheme and graceful lettering are perfect for a timeless wedding style – and the handwritten calligraphy will delight your guests and become a keepsake to cherish for generations.
This calligraphy collection was featured on the fabulous Wedding Sparrow blog in February. Do see the full feature for inspiration for your wedding day: Echoes at Enys by Taylor & Porter on Wedding Sparrow
