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!

My biggest and favourite project was these gorgeous handmade place names and escort cards, for lovely Emma from Tebbey & Co. They’re from Torn Edge Paper on Etsy and written by hand in a cornflower blue ink I mixed in my studio. (I’ll be teaching the simple art of making calligraphy ink in my intermediate calligraphy workshop in Manchester in August – info and tickets here.)

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!
