This is a little sneak peek into my other life: when I’m not typing I have an old-fashioned pen in my hand… an ink pot, blots on my face, like in the 19th century. I’m not a monk: I’m a calligrapher. I write wedding place names, address envelopes, calligraphy wedding readings and vows as keepsakes and wedding day gifts, and design bespoke wedding stationery for intimate weddings.

One of my favourite styles for calligraphy suites and wedding stationery this year is pale grey, graceful lettering with a hint of days gone by. I love to write in the style of an old love letter: casual, flowing scripts with elegance and old English charm.

Arthur Bear isn’t a wedding stationery designer: he’s still too young and cute even for school… but his mum, who named her business A Bear Draws after him, must be the loveliest, most talented illustrator and graphic designer to hit the UK wedding industry in years!

As with last week’s Custard Factory wedding, there are some names you just can’t ignore! Crimson Moonshine lands squarely in that category, and when I heard from lovely Amberin and Chloe I earmarked a spot for them on the English Wedding Blog straight away!

Wedding stationery by Crimson Moonshine UK (1) Crimson Moonshine have created their own very unique, fresh look in wedding stationery. Their suites are creatively named: from my favourite ‘Kate & Andy’ through the quintessentially English ‘William & Mary’ to the chic stripes of ‘Johnny & June’ – I think they’re fab!
