Elevate your day with
LUXURIOUS ON-THE-DAY
WEDDING STATIONERY

Where your invitations are a prelude to celebrating your marriage, setting the tone for what’s to come, your wedding day stationery not only guides your guests seamlessly through your ceremony and reception spaces but it is also the thread that ties your styling together.

From meticulously designed tactile menus tantalizing taste buds to place cards that escort your loved ones to their seats, each element is a carefully crafted detail creating an immersive experience that reflects your unique love story.

Your on the day stationery plays as much a big part in your wedding than your invitations and that’s why I pour as much of my creative heart into designing the perfect bespoke pieces for your big day.

Working with your chosen colour palette and printing on luxurious cardstock, I can bring to life the following: menus, place cards, escort cards, table names/numbers, seating charts and welcome signs, order of service booklets, bar or dessert table menus, guestbook sign...

Your modern and elegant wedding day stationery is printed by hand - letterpress or hot foil -, always with the highest level of care and attention to details.

The bespoke wedding day stationery process

If we have worked together on your save the dates and invitations, I will create your on-the-day stationery within the same style so that all of your wedding stationery works in complete harmony.

If this is our first time collaborating, getting to know you is essential to my personalised approach and to creating something bespoke for you.

GET IN TOUCH

If you are interested in working with me, the first step is to fill out my enquiry form to tell me about you, your wedding day and your stationery needs. If you already have some ideas about the creative direction or a Pinterest board, these are details I want to hear about to help me gauge your aesthetic.

~ 4 ~
DESIGN TIME

From the ideas we delved into during our initial consultation, I will get to work designing your bespoke wedding day pieces. The collaborative process will take on its full meaning as you give me feedback on the proofs submitted to you. We’ll refine the concept together until we achieve your vision. Whenever possible, I will liaise with your planner, your stylist, your florist, anyone who is also involved in the aesthetic of your day. This will ensure that your wedding day stationery works beautifully with every other aspect of your décor works.

~ 2 ~
GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

We’ll hop on a video call - or meet for coffee if you are local to me – for a 45 minutes creative consultation during which we discuss in more depth your wedding plans, stationery requirements, ideas and inspiration so I can understand better who you are and what is important to you.

~ 5 ~
PRINTING PROCESS

Once the design approved and all materials ordered, it’s time to get printing! As much as I love designing, nothing brings me more joy than the letterpress printing process. There is something truly beautiful and almost emotional about bringing to life something you have spent time and love creating. All finishing touches such as calligraphy details, wax seals and assembly are also done in-house.

~ 3 ~
PROPOSAL

Following the consultation, I will put together a proposal which outlines what we’ve discussed and the direction I’m thinking would work for you. Included in the proposal will be a quote and a suggested timeline (note that the average turnaround time for bespoke on the day stationery is around 10 weeks).

IT'S ON ITS WAY!

Your luxurious bespoke on-the-day stationery is soon to land on your doorstep which means that your wedding day is just around the corner!
