I’m a writer. I write for the English Wedding Blog, and when I’m not here I’m sat with a dip pen and a pot of ink, in a flurry of paper chaos, writing modern calligraphy. I love to create something beautiful, unique and enchanting. I also love to see people learn to write modern calligraphy – the joy of learning is so special to see.

Over the past few years I’ve taught dozens of brides-to-be, craft lovers, designers and wedding pros to write in beautiful modern calligraphy. I teach my workshops in Manchester, and I’m often asked if I hold workshops in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and more…


Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re ready for something really lovely… today’s Lincolnshire wedding is so so beautiful. I love Rebecca’s stunning dress (she’s just sooo beautiful!) and George’s beard – between the two of them this is just a perfect wedding for the blog and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

“We met while studying fine art at uni so it seemed a bit of a no-brainer to make our own stationery. George made the drawings for our invitations, order of service and table plan, while I made the layouts and put them together. It was pretty time consuming but we spend a lot of time making stuff anyway, and it was great because we got to include lots of little details and a lot of lavender!”


I was speechless when I first saw this beautiful wedding in my inbox – all I could say to Colin at first was “Wow… the brides, the details, the photography, the flowers… everything is just perfect.” and it still stops me in my tracks when I scroll through the images now. You’re in for a treat.

This is an absolutely perfect blog post – the flowers are so vibrant and colourful, and the mossy details are fab. I adore the fireplace, so full of colour – and the portraits of beautiful bride Hannah & her new husband Matt outside Woodhall Spa Manor are wonderful.

Our flowers were multi coloured and summery – truly breath taking – they were by Flowers by Suzanne. I added a few personal touches of my own creation, including a timeline of the day on an old mirror painted with chalk paint (borrowed from my cousin’s wedding) and a fingerprint tree guest book I made from an online template. I absolutely loved putting these few things together; luckily I am a teacher so had a few weeks before the wedding in the holidays to do all of this.
