Being creative with your wedding budget can reduce wedding stress. It’s not about looking for bargains, but more about planning and styling a thrifty wedding! Thinking the way our grandparents might have done about a wedding can be a breath of fresh air.
We want to help grooms and brides to manage their expectations along with their expenses.
Don’t despair – this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on elegance and style. There are several tricks and steps you can take to plan a sustainable, unforgettable wedding without breaking the bank.
Here’s a few photos to show you what I do as a wedding calligrapher!
When I’m not writing English Wedding, I write calligraphy for weddings. I help couples with everything from invitations to place name cards to table plans, wedding signs and more!
This is what I do when I’m not wedding blogging… I make stationery, including these lovely slimline place name cards for weddings!
Starting from only 70p a card, these elegant place cards are available in my Etsy shop, which you’ll find at www.bymoonandtide.etsy.com
I’m so excited to write these for you – the calligraphy just bounces from my nib, and the cards are just lovely – they’re a quality, FSC certified card, and the silk ribbon is made by hand in the UK.
Timeless wedding inspiration inspired by my favourite parts of the world: the wild beach of Askam-in-Furness, and the remote fellsides of Great Langdale. We’re thrilled to learn that outdoor weddings can now take place in England – but we do encourage all of you to look into independent celebrants so you can have your wedding ceremony wherever you’d like, not just on licensed premises! Here’s a glimpse of how incredible your anywhere-wedding could be.

Happy Thursday! Many of you will know I’m a calligrapher when I’m not blogging. It’s been a crazy old year and with Christmas coming round I wanted to show you lovely lot what I get up to! This time of year is all about family trees and calligraphy gift sets – with the odd commissioned artwork thrown in. Everything I do is designed for gifting: beautiful packaging is a major part of what I do.
