Wedding Stationery

We are now heading into the main wedding season and I am super excited to see the months of planning turn into beautiful wedding stationery for my couples. Whilst I create beautiful modern calligraphy wedding stationery all year round the late Spring and Summer are still the busiest for the wedding industry, which means my Nottinghamshire studio is a hive of activity.

If you are new to Polly and Me let me tell you more about the wonderful wedding stationery and signage that I create.

The most popular requests I have are for place name settings, menus, table plans and signage for weddings and occasions. I love pushing the boundaries when it comes to wedding stationery design and work closely with my couples to create something unique and bespoke to them. I love the challenge of creating something that will work well with the styling you have chosen for your wedding, but will also look great as a stand alone piece and give a wow factor to your special day.

With my clients I arrange a consultation session where we can talk about your wedding day plans and you as a couple. We can then plan and design your wedding stationery to give you something incredibly special.

Alongside the bespoke service I offer you can also find the Stationery Shop section of my website. If you have left your stationery planning a little late this may be the perfect area for you. This tried and tested stationery range still offers lots of personalisation with colours and name options, however, it has a much shorter lead time.

As the home of the original wedding scroll signs I love creating beautiful wedding signage that is super personal to the couple involved. I also love inventing new ways to style and display your wedding signage. You can see some examples below.

Although my studio is based in Nottinghamshire, my stationery certainly travels. I can deliver across the UK as well as overseas. I have designed and posted stationery for many weddings held abroad too.

If you would like to ask any questions or book your consultation get in touch using the button below.

Keep an eye out soon for our new range of wedding stationery.

This month has been one that I have really enjoyed. It has been a busy one, with plenty going on behind the scenes, so I thought I would share a little of the adventures with you.

Wedding Events In The Midlands

I have attended two fabulous wedding events within the Midlands this month. Firstly, I was at the Haarlem Mill wedding event, held by Oh Happy Day. Which was a beautiful event held in the gorgeous Derbyshire based mill building venue. I had a little helper in the form of my eldest daughter Polly, who made a fabulous job of styling some of my products for me. This photo, taken by Foye Tography was all Polly’s work!

The second event I attended this month was the Sami Tipi open weekend. These events are always a lot of fun and I love collaborating with some of my favourite wedding industry colleagues such as RubyLou’s Cake Company and Tickety Boo Events.

Next Level Calligraphy Workshops In Nottingham

This month I held my very first ‘next level’ calligraphy workshops. It was so fun to do these after being asked for so long. They went down a storm and I am already planning the next session. If you would like to join the next level workshop, get in touch or sign up to my mailing list to be the first to hear about available dates. If you are at the beginning of your calligraphy journey, our next beginners calligraphy workshops are now available to book!

I had to write this blog post as I simply couldn't let pass some of the beautiful weddings I have been involved in recently. Working alongside some fabulous brides and grooms as well as some super talented stylists, we have created gorgeous and unique wedding stationery and finishing touches. 

As you perhaps know, alongside my ready to go wedding stationery range that you can order online, I also create fabulous bespoke pieces which are personal to each wedding and each couple. I love when I get the opportunity to be super creative and try something a little different to fulfil my clients vision. 

Below are some of the great weddings and the pieces I have created for them recently.

A big thank you to Birds in the Attic and Tickety Boo Events for some of the photos above.
