This is a little sneak peek into my other life: when I’m not typing I have an old-fashioned pen in my hand… an ink pot, blots on my face, like in the 19th century. I’m not a monk: I’m a calligrapher. I write wedding place names, address envelopes, calligraphy wedding readings and vows as keepsakes and wedding day gifts, and design bespoke wedding stationery for intimate weddings.

One of my favourite styles for calligraphy suites and wedding stationery this year is pale grey, graceful lettering with a hint of days gone by. I love to write in the style of an old love letter: casual, flowing scripts with elegance and old English charm.

This is a look you can easily incorporate into your wedding – and calligraphy is the perfect finishing touch. I designed and lettered an invitation suite on the palest grey stationery: a beautiful dove grey with ink a shade or two lighter to give the perfect contrast and create a soft look.

There’s nothing lovelier than running your hands over soft, warm and luscious letterpress invitations. I adore letterpress print – as a calligrapher I get stupidly excited when brides send me gorgeous invites! – and I’ve just discovered the fabulous Wolf & Ink letterpress studio. Their designs are stunning; they’re eco-friendly and the way they work is wonderfully enticing. Founder Julia Wolfe has very generously shared her designs with us today and I’d love to show you my favourites.

Happy Sunday my lovely! I hope you’re having a chilled-out day and keeping snuggly and warm with your other half… I love Sunday mornings in autumn for doing just that! So while you’re snuggling and surfing the web let me show you these lovely invites for a natural, boho or woodland wedding.

Printed wedding invitations from £2

They’ve been designed especially for more natural styled weddings – the biggest trends in 2014 were outdoor weddings, natural styling and woodland themes, and this invitation suite reflects all of those. The lettering is playful and pretty, with your names created in handwritten calligraphy and then scanned and reprinted onto the invites. Text is in a charming handwritten font, with a natural flower & leaves illustration to decorate the finished invite. All of these elements carry through to your on the day stationery to make sure everything is consistent and your guests get a real idea for the style of your day.
