I would urge every stationery-loving, creative and contemporary bride and groom to discover small independent businesses while planning your weddings. If there’s an indie alternative to high street products, seek it out and support the little, local guys.

Join me this lovely morning to discover the fabulous Dearly Beloved – wedding invitations by a creative designer team with a fresh and modern approach to wedding stationery. Gorgeous Abi and Ben create “painterly” [oh and that’s  my new favourite word!] designs, retro floral illustration and eclectic, whimsical wedding stationery. I think you’ll love them…

wedding stationery by Dearly Beloved (4)I’ve fallen head over heels for Abi and Ben’s fresh and exciting take on wedding stationery. Their simple but oh-so-creative illustrations are just wonderful. I adore their use of strong ink lines with the most delicate watercolours… and I have a feeling you’ll be charmed by them too!

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.
