Selfridges Beauty Event

I had a super festive start to December lettering up in the Selfridges Manchester store!

There was a live band, champers and lots of shoppers getting their Christmas cards personalised by me in their hugeee beauty hall.

We opted for beautiful metallic brush lettering for a bit of Christmas bling; silver on white and copper on kraft brown. It was so busy I even had to give away my little practice runs!

Thanks so much to Kyle for capturing all these lovely pictures and to Selfridges for making me feel so welcome.

If you need me to cover an event or party, drop me a wee note here with your ideas or email me on!

Event ~ MALIN+GOETZ and Reading In Heels

On Thursday I had the loooovely job of live lettering for customers at MALIN+GOETZ Islington store (it is beautiful and designed by Jonathan Tuckey) for the Books and Beauty event hosted by Reading In Heels.

I was tucked up in the window surrounded by their sage candle (my ponytail had a few close shaves but we were fine) whilst customers were given perfume consultations, mini facials and the opportunity to nose at books provided by local bookstore Burley Fisher.

If that wasn't enough, the event supported Beauty Banks; a superb charity who provide donated toiletries to those most in need. You can read about how they came to be here. If you do have miniatures and unwanted new toiletries, do give them a shout!

I'm looking forward to my next event already :).

Helen & Chris' Countryside Wedding

Helen and Chris' wedding was held in the beautiful county of Essex and it was tipis and festoon lights galore. Not to mention a well stocked gin bar, gospel choir and welly throwing.

The marquee was decorated in ivy foliage, gypsophelia, candles and a whole host of gorgeous friends and family, including a very well behaved little 1 year old bridesmaid.

We created bespoke place names brush lettered in a gorgeous gold pigment on heavy hammered ivory card to complement the natural theme. Table plans were finished off with lots of lovely mini chalkboard details and signs directed the guests where to go.

Have a nose below at the lovely day and get in touch if you need help with lettering on the big day - just about anything is possible and weddings are my absolute favourite!

Bespoke Lettering Chalkboards ~ Countryside Hen Do

What a lovely idea this bridesmaid had; creating a personalised gin bar for her sister with chalkboard signs featuring all the places her hens are from!

If you need some bespoke chalkboard signs, there are some perfect little arrows waiting for you in the wedding shop! Coated wood with a little string to hang them up with, and best of all they can be painted either side, in any language AND they are reusable!

A Cressing Temple Wedding

I totally forgot about these little signs that I created for my best bud's wedding! It was a stunning day complete with Jenny Packham dress and 13th Century countryside barn setting. The sunshine shone ALL day (there were a few pink shoulders) and the bride and groom didn't stop smiling until they left in the wee small hours.


It was my FIRST ever wedding that I did lettering for and as a little bridesmaid, it has gone right in my memory box.

Kate & Simon's New Zealand wedding

Well you don't get much better than a party in sunny New Zealand do you?!

Kate & Simon got married in the gorgeous Old School Forest in the Bay of Plenty. What a ruddy dreamy setting.


Their theme was gold and mint, so we opted for metallic gold ink for brush lettering name settings, a big ole seating for eating table plan and lots of little chalkboard signs dotted around for guests. 

This was an interesting one for logistics! The bride loved chalkboards, so I worked with some pretty nifty chalkboard vinyl so we could roll up the table plan and send it on the plane with her fabulous sister. It was popped in a beautiful gold frame and ta daaaaa, one table plan for 113 hungry Kiwi bellies :).

Here's some pics, and a huge thank you to the bride and groom, I am always very appreciative to have photos of their day shared with me.
