Where are you up to with your wedding stationery? Will you be writing your own place names, table plan or signage on the day? A few little calligraphy tips will really help you on your way – and I have six modern calligraphy workshops planned for the year ahead. It’s what I do when I’m not writing a wedding blog: I have little pots of ink on my desk, and pens with nibs, and I spend my days writing beautiful wedding invitations and stationery. There’s something really lovely about modern calligraphy. Seeing the pen flow across the page as I write is just magical. Coming to a calligraphy workshop is a lovely experience – often brides-to-be come with mums, best friends and future husbands or wives – it’s a chance to spend some real quality time together in the run up to the big day as well. I teach every workshop myself, and they’re hosted in different locations around the north west of England. Every workshop is aimed at beginners – I’ll start by showing you how to hold a calligraphy pen and you’ll learn how to write beautiful alphabets and quotes in no time!

Hey lovely! I spent yesterday playing with my brush pens, as I’m heading to lovely Nantwich for a day of calligraphy fun at the weekend! I’ll be at The Little Paper Shop (in their gorgeous new home!) all day, and we still have a few places left for brush pen lettering in the afternoon. I’ve splashed out on a few water brush pens for the afternoon – and I just can’t stop playing with them! They’re the LOVELIEST thing!

I really hope you don’t mind, lovelies – I have a little announcement to make with my calligrapher hat on – and I know a few of you have seen my calligraphy workshops on English Wedding and come along – and it’s been fabulous to meet you all!

I’m actually a little bit sad to say that October’s modern calligraphy workshop at Manchester Craft & Design centre is going to be my last one for the forseeable future at this venue. Join me one last time on Friday the 11th of October for a beginners calligraphy class – I promise you will have the loveliest time here – it’s a wonderful place and a fun, happy afternoon!
