As you may know, I write calligraphy for weddings when I’m not in my blogging shoes, and the last couple of weeks have been super busy with some updates to my collections.
I have had my little Etsy shop since 2013 and in that time I’ve written for hundreds of couples’ weddings. But some of my wedding stationery had been on there the whole time – yes, the whole entire seven years – and was beginning to look a little 1990s around the edges. (I might be overly critical; maths sure as hell ain’t my thing. But yeah, it looked OLD!)
Morning lovelies! A short and sweet blog feature today, as I put final touches to our Christmas blog features and whizz around in my calligraphy studio making little gift sets for my Not On The High Street customers! If you’re looking for an extra gift for someone with crafty talents, stationery lovers or anyone planning a DIY wedding, I have an idea to help you!
My modern calligraphy workshops in March and April are selling quickly! I’ve been sending out gift vouchers with all sorts of Christmassy tags and lettering – and I have a few left if you’d like one!
‘Tis the season to get Married…
English Wedding member Love Invited has launched a new festive-inspired wedding stationery collection for couples that prefer wintry skies and snow covered churches as their dream wedding day backdrop.
Capturing the magic of the festive season and the romance of a winter wedding, the beautiful new Winter Confetti collection has a traditional, yet elegant feel.
The background colour can be customised to your colour scheme and wording can be tailored to your day, and the collection can be fully customised to your preferred colour and foil.
One of the big wedding trends for 2020 is illustrated wedding stationery, so its no surprise that custom designed illustrations are gaining much more popularity.
Amanda Williams, owner at Love Invited, a small independent wedding stationer has seen a distinct rise in orders of this style over the past six months.
Amanda says “Commissioning a custom designed illustration not only gives a very personal touch, but also gives the couple control over exactly how this will come to life on paper.
Hey lovely! I spent yesterday playing with my brush pens, as I’m heading to lovely Nantwich for a day of calligraphy fun at the weekend! I’ll be at The Little Paper Shop (in their gorgeous new home!) all day, and we still have a few places left for brush pen lettering in the afternoon. I’ve splashed out on a few water brush pens for the afternoon – and I just can’t stop playing with them! They’re the LOVELIEST thing!
