Happy Thursday! Many of you will know I’m a calligrapher when I’m not blogging. It’s been a crazy old year and with Christmas coming round I wanted to show you lovely lot what I get up to! This time of year is all about family trees and calligraphy gift sets – with the odd commissioned artwork thrown in. Everything I do is designed for gifting: beautiful packaging is a major part of what I do.

So. Lockdown. Here we go… and I’d like to send out a massive hug to all of you. I know this is hard. I know it’s not just about weddings – it’s about loneliness, and fear, and financial crises, and missing people so much it hurts. I know.

I’m staying home. I will do whatever I can to keep our grandparents, parents, neighbours and healthcare workers alive this winter. I only wish we had a government that was more in touch with the rest of us, that would understand the support we all need, and find a means to provide it.

My wonderful readers, I hope you’re ready for a truly magical Christmas. We’ve had a crazy busy, beautiful month and now I’m looking forward to snuggles and fairy lights, Baileys on tap and lots of precious moments with family and friends. I hope wherever you are, whatever your plans, you will have a relaxing, restorative and peaceful festive season. We will – of COURSE! – be filling our pages over the Christmas period with some stunning real weddings, tips and advice for all of you lovely brides and grooms to be!

I think I’m about to talk about the C word… I mean, we’re just over 9 weeks away, and I know I’m starting to think about fairy lights and baubles – and hey, I LOVE Christmas!!! So today I wanted to introduce you to a really cute idea from new English Wedding members Pink Positive. Their super cute personalised prezzies are such a lovely idea – I hope you’ll love these!

What a whirlwind last year was! I hope 2017 has been as wonderful for you as it has for us here at the English Wedding Blog HQ. Time to start afresh, relax and rewind, and make some lovely plans for the year ahead. If you’re thinking ahead to your 2018 wedding (eeekkk!!) and looking for a project or a crafty little challenge for the year ahead, I might just have the perfect solution.
