I’m Hélène, the one woman band behind Smitten with Ink.
Creating unique wedding stationery that celebrates your love story is both a privilege and my happy place.
I started my small but mighty stationery design business out of a love for calligraphy and illustration.
I won't tell you it all started from a young age because in truth it didn't! Prior to this venture, I have had a couple of careers in International law then accountancy (yes, we are very far from fine art!). The shift to a creative life happened when I was on maternity leave and I needed some time to myself. I found calligraphy as a creative outlet, fell in love with it and further explored my artistic streak with floral illustrations.
Based in Wimbledon, Smitten with Ink is a small scale operation (i.e. me!) with most things handmade. It’s all about the little details and I bring a lot of love into my work, making sure each piece receives the level of care and attention it deserves.
I also work with printing companies who bring that same level of quality in the service they provide.
Thank you for being here, for trusting me with your vision & for supporting a small business.
What's my design style?
You might have guessed it from having a little browse around here, I get mostly inspired by nature. It feeds my creativity, with each season bringing new colour palettes & endless species of flora. Although I naturally keep my designs quite minimalistic and timeless, I’m always up for exploring further and experimenting with new things in order to achieve the design as envisioned by my couples.
