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.

The Wedding Gallery Summer Soirée
 

The Wedding Gallery held their Summer Soirée at One Marylebone and asked me to create some giant lettered mirrors to say thank you to all their lovely suppliers...and they really were giant 7ft beasts which meant I was propped on a ladder!

Thanks to Sandra at Divine Day Photography for the lovely snaps!

We were serenaded by the Urban Soul Orchestra and Adrian Garcia + band in sweltering London sunshine!

Tipples came from Bloom Gin, Moët and The Cocktail Service (delicioussssss guys, seriously) and the garden was decorated with splendid sculptures from Bubblegum Balloons.

Sarah Smart Illustration painted all the lovely guests and we danced until we needed pizza from Lucabuca and flipflops.

It was so nice to meet all the other wedding suppliers and hear about why they chose the wedding industry; happy days, smiley people and every single wedding is unique. Here here! A pretty good Wednesday evening I'd say.

 
SAVE THE DATES ~ TOP TIPS

Planning a wedding is hectic to say the least, so it's wonderful to have top tips from suppliers in the industry to avoid common mistakes and ensure you get exactly what you want.

The lovely folks at Love My Dress asked for save the date tips from some of their wedding stationery bods, here are a few of mine (some apply to more than save the dates!):

GET WHAT YOU WANT

First and foremost, ask for exactly what you want. Even if it is sky-blue-pink with a yellow border, because chances are it can be done!

 

IDEAS

Send as much info as possible when you drop me a line. The more info I have (think images, colour, finishing), the easier and quicker it will be to get you a quote - and let's face it, that's the most important thing!

 

AWKWARD CONVOS

Use save the dates as a breeeezy way to ask a guest to 'save the evening' instead of sending them save the dates AND invites. It also avoids any awkward convos.

 

ONE AT A TIME

Get the save the dates out first and then worry about the rest. Any good stationery supplier won't force you to design and pay for ALL stationery at the same time, that would be crazy talk.

You will also be able to run any design through it all, so take one thing at a time so you can focus on budget and changes in circumstances.

 

COMMS + TRANSPARENCY

Communication is key! Boring but true. I will keep you up to date with work in progress snaps and involve you at all stages. 

If something can't be done within budget or to a high enough standard, I will be the first to let you know and I will work with you to recommend alternatives.

 

Above all, this is the exciting bit and should be fun! Whomever you choose, it's their job to know what weight a paper should be and whether you need matte or satin, so take their advice and let them do the hard work! :)

Little Book For Brides ~ Louie Tilley Lettering
 

2018 is looking set to be a busy year for weddings so I am super chuffed to be featured in the Little Book For Brides directory alongside all the other lovely stationery bods.

Beautiful bespoke wedding stationery, chalkboards and signs finished off with exquisite calligraphy and brush lettering by Louie. We adore her work.

Give me a shout if you have a wedding next year and need some advice; I work on the teeniest detail such as place names all the way up to entire packages on the day, nothing is too small and I'm always up for a cuppa and a brainstorm!

 
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!
