Morning lovelies! I wanted to quickly show you these beauties from my Etsy shop. Lovely Jessica Reeve Photography sent me a handful of photos which I’m over the moon with (thank you Jess!) and I couldn’t wait to show you! This wedding invitation set is sustainable, made from recycled card and doesn’t cost the earth. I can also address your envelopes by hand in modern calligraphy – it’s an optional extra I love to provide for my couples.

Hey beautiful! I have real life news today… I’m really excited to be hosting a series of modern calligraphy workshops this summer – it’s going to be a whole whirlwind of fun and I’d LOVE for you to come and join me for an afternoon or full day of playing with pens and learning gorgeous contemporary scripts to style your wedding!

Learn calligraphy – join my calligraphy class in Manchester / Cumbria / Cheshire

Modern hand lettering is one of the loveliest DIY projects you can do for your wedding – and it’s a skill you’ll never lose! I’ll teach you quirky styles in a one-day workshop and you get to take your dip pen and nib (and some goodies) home with you too!

These last few weeks have been crazy! May the 4th is a HUGE day for weddings this year – the force is most definitely with all of you lovely people getting hitched this bank holiday weekend!

I’ve been a busy little bee with lots of calligraphy work in my little home studio, so I thought I’d share a little with you today. And if any of you would like to book my services for your weddings later in the year I’d LOVE to hear from you!

My week began with Vikki’s gorgeous place names from Papier – they’re called Mother Amazon and they’re beautiful!

I’d be willing to bet actual money that more than one person has already told you, don’t sweat the small stuff.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t fall in love with those exquisite little details which will make your wedding beautiful…

This is how I spend my time when I’m not writing the English Wedding Blog.

Summer days are spent with my pen and inks, scribing names onto the most exquisite papers and working with brides and grooms to create beautiful styling touches for their weddings. I hope you like them!

Do you have a vision for your perfect wedding invitations? Are you collecting images you love on Pinterest, but leaving it until 6 months or so before your wedding to place an order? Or do you think DIY-ing your invites will save you money? (And surely it can’t be that hard, right?)

I’ve been a wedding calligrapher for 12 years. I’ve made bespoke invites, launched my own collections and helped hundreds of brides and grooms find their perfect stationery. I’ve also seen thousands of invitations cross my desk from letterpress companies, high street brands and little independent wedding invitation designers.
