I began creating Wedding Stationery in the summer of 2008 when my friend was getting married. I casually mentioned I had been making some greeting cards; she was in need of some Wedding reception items (place cards, table plan etc). So it really was a case of right time, right place and the rest as they say is history!
I have always been quite crafty. I remember making Christmas cards with my Aunty when I was younger out of some card, pritt stick and tin foil! That same much loved Aunty still makes 24 hour trips from Australia to help me tape invitations together! (A quick little thank you to my Aunty Carline).
Over the past 5 years, through word of mouth and recommendations, my hobby/business has exceeded all expectations. I’ve recently given up a much loved career in Marketing to focus all my attention on my love of creating beautiful event stationery.
It’s funny…in the past I’ve been asked in interviews ‘and what would you say are your negative qualities’ and I’d always respond with ‘I’m a perfectionist’. That’s not a negative in this type of job though is it?
I’ve been very lucky to meet some gorgeous brides and become what I like to think of as a friend through their whole wedding journey.
I’m based in Hampshire; however I’ve helped couples all over the country from Argyll, Scotland to Cork, Ireland and even a few couples all the way over in Australia!
I love weddings! In fact, I love any type of party! And being able to help create the perfect stationery for your special day makes my ‘job’ that even bit better!
Lots of love
