There’s something very, very special about letterpress. It’s the way you’re drawn to touch what your eyes are drinking in; the way foil print catches the light; the luscious thick cards and striking colours. As a calligrapher it’s one of my very favourite things…

Today I wanted to show you a few suites by Cotton Letterpress. These guys have a fabulous eye for design: their stationery is exquisitely styled and beautifully produced (I know this: I’ve had the pleasure of adding a little handwritten calligraphy to their invites and envelopes and I loved every second.)

So many times I’ve heard on Instagram (do come & see us there!) that you can make anything you photograph look pretty by adding a flower or a few styling touches. Not true – whatever you’re photographing has to be awesome already… like this! Don’t you just LOVE?!

Sometimes it’s easy to find a wedding stationery collection which stands out from the crowd… Something about Lilac & White takes my breath away: perhaps because I love a landscape and sunset, perhaps because I adore minimal, elegant design with beautifully considered typography and spacing. There isn’t a single invitation here I don’t love – and I hope you will too!

Did you see our 15 wonderfully unique and affordable wedding invitations feature last month? I love writing posts like these: I love being able to share independent designers’ collections with you and I see myself as a bit of a matchmaker.

Aimee Willow Designs unique illustrated wedding stationery (7)

I totally fell in love with Aimee Willow Designs‘ Instagram themed wedding invitation and I was thrilled when Aimee said I could show you more of her work. She’s a true talent: an illustrator and graphic designer by trade, Aimee started to specialise in wedding stationery while planning her own wedding. Her style ranges from inky floral bohemian to unique passport and polaroid quirkiness. I love how she combines modern handwriting fonts with quirky floral graphics to create bright and breezy invitation styles. Her country garden invitation is so sweet and perfect… I think this is my favourite but it’s soooo hard to choose from so much pretty!
