Every word handwritten…

Printed wedding stationery doesn’t necessarily mean mass produced, but you definitely get a very special personal touch when you hire a calligrapher for your wedding.

90% of what I do here in my little studio is by hand, one letter at a time, with an element of alchemy in mixing inks and choosing papers where they’ll sit just so… and every morning when I sit at my desk I fall back in love with my work.

Calligraphy is every bit as therapeutic, rewarding and exciting as you could imagine – and if you don’t fancy having a go yourself you can still just as easily fall in love with delicate modern lettering written especially for you.

These little pieces were written by me, in my little calligraphy studio on the edge of the Lake District. The gold ink shines gently in sunlight; the black hand-torn card is perfect for a boho or country wedding – and ideal for darker or wooden tables where a little more impact is needed for your guests’ place settings.

Place name cards in this style start from £2 each for the dinky little name tags pinned to the pears in our pictures. Your guests’ names will be written by hand onto the tiny black tags (measuring just 5cm x 2cm) with a punched hole for you to attach the tags however you wish. They’re perfect for pinning onto pears, apples and other edibles (frosted brownies for a winter wedding, anyone?) and will catch the eye of your guests straight away.

For other items in this collection please get in touch for a quote. Let me know how many guests you’ll have (your best guess), and the date of your wedding. I’d love to hear from you so please don’t be shy! Email me: hello@calligraphy-for-weddings.com today!
