How did your business get started?
I had been a full time graphic designer for several years after graduating from Uni. My job mainly involved Logo work, brochures, advertising for corporate companies. My boss at the time was actually my first ‘wedding client’, then I started to do invites and table plans for a few of my friends weddings, then my own wedding in 2010, just in my spare time really and I absolutely love it. It wasn’t until I left full time work to have my son that I set up the business properly and now I work from home and have clients nationwide.

What products and services do you offer including price ranges?
In a nutshell, anything a couple might need for their big day that is printed.. I can create. From save the date cards, invites, order of service, menus, table plans, table numbers, place names, to favour tags, stickers and thank you cards. I have ready made template designs that can be personalised or I can design a completely unique bespoke theme. Prices vary on style, paper choice, added ribbon and gems. All of my products can be adapted to suit any budget.

Do you have a personal style that you gravitate towards?
Not really, I like to think I offer a wide range of styles, every wedding is different. I do ask the couple if they have style they prefer, then we can go from there. I love making stationery based on a specific theme too, in the past I have done themes including Las Vegas, Golf, Horses, Love Hearts, Musical theatre and Disney

Tell us what designs you are loving right now and what colour combinations do you love?
I’m loving the romantic themes, Coral and mint are my fave shades at the moment. I like relaxed and informal wording for invites and little quirky details that add personality.

What ideas are providing inspiration for your creativity?
I like to look at flower bouquets on Pinterest, they give me inspiration for different colour combinations.

What designs and styles are proving popular right now?
I’m doing lots of destination wedding invites recently and there are a lot of pastel shades which are so pretty. I have also had a lot of interest in one of my table plans in particular which has a sweetie theme.
