About the company
I took up calligraphy when planning my own wedding and fell completely in love with it. From there I began scribing for friends' weddings and parties, which led to my working with a number of small brands and events companies to add that little something extra to their event. Whether a large scale wedding or an intimate dinner party, I love helping a client bring everything together, whether through that perfect colour of ink or else the most specific of personal touches that help to make your event your own. Name places, escort cards, menus, invitations and envelopes are my go to products but I am always open to testing out different surfaces, new tools or new styles!
I will always reuse packaging wherever possible so as to avoid any waste!
Put simply, I love writing and any opportunity for me to use my calligraphy is a total pleasure. Whether you want 250 place names, escort cards and menus, or 12 place names for an intimate dinner party, I am happy to help!
Nothing beats pen and ink (particularly a coloured ink - and the brighter the better) but I have also worked with pens, paints and digital tools.
I have loved each and every event that I have written for as no two events have been the same but I particularly enjoy writing for events that have a clear theme or link tying everything together. Favourite requests have included; place names for a bird themed marquee, neon pink ink for a christening invitation, as well as slate luggage tags with rose gold writing. I could go on...
Never far from a bar of chocolate...
Sadly no, although more optimistically... not yet! I currently work full time but have the added bonus of very generous school holidays in which to focus on my calligraphy. I tend to have more availability in the holidays but am always able to make time for events that take place outside of these times.
