Did you come along to The Wedding Event With a Difference last weekend? If you didn’t, we are sorry to say you missed an amazing show. We love this event for its unique styling, great suppliers and fabulous shows and this particular event was no different.

We love it for launching our latest seasons style, new products and meeting brides and grooms who are looking for something extra special and bespoke from their wedding stationery.

During this event we launched our gorgeous new wedding stationery range, which you can shop on our website here. This gorgeous dipped edge watercolour stationery with personalised lettering is the perfect addition to many wedding styling concepts. With the added touch of gold or copper leaf you will be sure that your wedding place settings have the real wow factor.

You can buy this range by opting for individual items such as menus and place settings, or choose our handy table package which offers everything you will need to create a consistent look for your wedding table settings.

Whether you attended The Wedding Event With a Difference, or have just seen the pictures on social media, you will have also noticed that we have added a couple of new signage style options to our iconic range. Whilst we are very well known for our beautiful original scroll wedding signage, we now have the option of frosted acrylic macrame signage and our stunning new cotton rag 3 part scroll.

Both of these new additions to our wedding signage range offer gorgeous details which will really help you achieve the wow factor on your big day.

I have been overwhelmed and flattered that so many of my previous workshop attendees have asked for a next level to my modern calligraphy workshops. It is something I have been thinking about for a while. so I am now super excited to launch my next level workshops!

Held at my studio in Nottingham these advanced modern calligraphy workshops will be for previous attendees of my beginners modern calligraphy workshops, or a similar not with myself, or people who feel they have suitable experience. The new equipment you need will be provided, but I ask that you bring along your own calligraphy pen. If you attended my beginners workshop you will already have one of these in your previous kit.

As with all of the workshops I hold at my studio in Nottingham, there will always be some sweet treats and copious amounts of tea or coffee available.

During the 2 and a half hour class you will be one of 7 people attending. We will start off by doing a recap on your technique and look at developing your personal style, learning how we can exaggerate and play with what you can already do.

We will look in to layouts. How to plan your pieces for both shorter and lengthy work, and both small scale and larger scale.

To finish we will create a couple of custom pieces for your walls at home - including a mini scroll, one of Polly & Me’s trademark products.

If you would like to join us you can book using the button below. Book soon as these workshops are in high demand and we have already sold out of the morning sessions.
