I’m a total paper freak. I love exploring art shops and specialist stationery suppliers’ little havens of handmade papers, running my hands along the torn edges of any new stock I can find. I know it’s weird.

But there’s a thing I can’t get out of my head: I read on a wedding blog a week or two ago that one of the key trends for 2018 wedding stationery would be paper.

Not card, not pocketfolds, not even transparencies. Good old earthy, natural, handmade paper.

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re having a really good week. Spring is here at last, and with it the exciting news that the English Wedding Blog SHOP is now open!! We’ve been working really hard behind the scenes since – ooh – Christmas?! – to bring you our brand new shop, and it’s all up and running, ready for business!

The English Wedding Blog Shop brings together all of the things I love. It’s early days and I  plan to add more lovely things for you to buy soon. You can shop for wedding invitations today – these are close to my heart as they’re designed by my beautiful illustrator friend Amy Swann and feature my calligraphy (I’ll even address envelopes for you if you’d like to hire me!).

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!
