Regular readers will know stationery is close to my heart! As a calligrapher I’ve worked with some of the very best from Cutture to Print for Love – and one of the loveliest things about writing the English Wedding Blog is discovering new stationery designers and online wedding invitation boutiques.

I’m also a huge supporter of independent and local businesses, so I’m delighted to bring you my top picks of wedding stationery designers to watch (and buy from!) in 2018. In no particular order….

Emma Jo Wedding Stationery

Emma Jo is always in our lists of favourite stationers. We loved her delicate butterfly wedding invitations as featured in one of our favourite shoots of the year – and we’re excited to see Emma’s latest projects for 2018. Emma’s lovely – follow her instagram for tons of gorgeous paper inspiration and sneak peeks at latest projects!

My lovely friend Claire, our Facebook page curator and the creative spark behind this year’s Chosen Wedding Fairs, is working incredibly hard in the run up to next week’s London event. I’m absolutely thrilled for her – being involved in one of the UK’s best wedding supplier showcases is something to be so proud of – and she’s just sent me a list of the amazing exhibitors who’ll be there on the day. This is the best kind of sneak peek  – you can totally plan your day at Chosen!

Regular readers will know I have a love of beautiful stationery (and jump for joy when I see it with an e rather than an a!) – and I love to share the designs of wedding stationery designers on the blog. There’s something really special about the first announcement of your wedding – and invitations with doorstep appeal are such a wonderful special touch. Today I wanted to share some pretty, chic modern designs from Polka Dot Paper. I hope you love them!
