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.
Christmas calligraphy gift set
This beautifully presented Christmas calligraphy set is perfect for beginners with full instructions and everything you need inside.
So. Lockdown. Here we go… and I’d like to send out a massive hug to all of you. I know this is hard. I know it’s not just about weddings – it’s about loneliness, and fear, and financial crises, and missing people so much it hurts. I know.
I’m staying home. I will do whatever I can to keep our grandparents, parents, neighbours and healthcare workers alive this winter. I only wish we had a government that was more in touch with the rest of us, that would understand the support we all need, and find a means to provide it.
Hey lovelies! A very quick little blog post from me today as I’m squirrelling away behind the scenes on a couple of little projects. I’m reaching out to every wedding stationery designer out there for a little help and so I can feature your designs!
Very soon I’ll be publishing English Wedding’s Essential Guide to wedding invitation wordings.
The guide (on the blog) will be full of example wordings, advice and beautiful invitations with recommendations for where to buy wedding invitations!
I love seeing the wedding readings our featured couples choose. This was a new one for me, and I think it’s really sweet. Every now and then a wedding reading will inspire me to pick up my calligraphy pens as well!
That Still and Settled Place
In that still and settled place
There’s nobody but you
You’re where I breathe my oxygen
You’re where I see my view
And when the world feels full of noise
My heart knows what to do
It finds that still and settled place
And dances there with you
