This summer has been wonderful already. I’ve written for some amazing couples, worked on fabulous projects for wedding signage and stationery, and designed calligraphy suites for some of my favourite photographers. Tomorrow I’m teaching a calligraphy workshop in Manchester and we have another (booking up fast!) on the 19th of August. If you’d like to come along, you can book places in my Etsy shop now. But first… a few little notes about using calligraphy for your wedding day.

So many brides and grooms contact me looking for a special, personal touch to their day. Calligraphy is more than just writing: it’s art, craftsmanship and creativity – and as such it lends real elegance to place settings and wedding tables. Most of my work over the summer months is writing place names for weddings, and I thought I’d share some tips with you all today.

5 tips for styling your wedding tables with calligraphy

  1. Keep it simple – use flat cards, linen napkins and plain plates or chargers for a modern, elegant look

I’ve very rarely used English Wedding Blog to show off my own work, but today I hope you’ll forgive me for sharing my wedding calligraphy here! Summer’s finally arrived and it really feels like wedding season now – I’m sure there are lots of very excited brides, grooms and wedding suppliers out there!

Calligraphy for your Wedding

It’s time to think about the special touches you’ll have at your wedding reception, and time to think about ordering any wedding reception stationery and indeed calligraphy – if you’re someone who loves paper and stationery and sees the beauty in handwritten wedding calligraphy. Would you believe even wedding calligraphers get booked up over the summer?! It was a lovely surprise to me too, at first!

I have a few slots left for wedding calligraphy bookings over the summer months, from June through to September. But early booking is always wise – whether you’re only looking for wedding place card calligraphy or you’d like handwritten wedding menus, signs or an alternative wedding table plan – perhaps I’m your girl!
