A Tangerine Dream

My personal Wedding Colour Palette is maybe a little unconventional. But there is something so refreshing and inviting about Tangerine & Mint to me. Neither one is vying for the centre stage - the orange, in moderation, highlights the cool mint, which in turn showcases the vibrant orange. I think either one alone wouldn't quite do it for me - the mint would be too wishy washy (I struggled to find a better abjective, sorry) and the orange too overwhelming. But together, something beautiful happens...

All of the above items are available to purchase from Etsy stores, just click on the item name below and whoosh, you'll be taken straight to the shop selling it.

All the Fun of the Fayre

So today was the Port Sunlight Village Festival - a local festival to me and one that attracts a huge number of visitors to the area. Not one to miss an opportunity, I jumped at the offer to have a stall at the local pub, The Bridge Inn, to showcase my designs. Though I market specifically as Wedding Stationery, all of my designs can be altered to suit any occasion and hopefully today will lead to a bit more local business. Anyway, here are a few photies taken today - hope you like!

Rock 'n' Roll Wedding Invitation

I do love the music of the 1950's and 60's, the purr of an electric guitar and the soulful lyrics of Elvis Presley. And I'm sure I'm not alone. So, thus inspired my Record Sleeve Wedding Invitation, styled on the Record sleeves of the early 60's.
I've shown it here in a vibrant yellow, but this can be altered to whatever colour you like. It's designed to print onto a 149mm square folded card, with the inside featuring a mock vinyl record containing all wedding details.
The Personalised file is available to buy for just £14.95 to print your own, or if you prefer, contact me for a quotation on printed quantities.

Getting Groomed: Bow Tie Blues

The Groom is often overlooked in the grand scheme of a wedding. We focus on The Dress, The Cake, The Venue, and ultimately, The Bride. But a Wedding Day is for two people, and I’d like to celebrate the Groom and say that, without him, there wouldn’t be a wedding at all. So I present to you “Getting Groomed”; a series of posts for the men we love, and some wedding items which will make them feel all lovely and adored on what is their Big Day too. So lets begin...

Amanda Jo Handmade of Utah, USA

Amanda Jo Handmade makes a delicious selection of quirky and beautiful bowties. Using Cotton, Cotton Blend and even Silk, Amanda looks to use the best quality fabric and hand selects prints she feels will really stand out from the crowd.

"I put a lot of thought, time and love into every listing. All of the items I sell are designed and handmade by myself and all sewing is done in my home studio. I love my work and providing people with a handmade item. To me, the fact that a product is handmade instead of mass-produced means that it has soul and is in no way a "cookie cutter" item"
.Though she has a great selection of designs already listed on her shop, she also offers a custom service if you would prefer a different coloured pattern to those shown, though they may take a little longer to receive, it’s well worth it to get a colour match which works well with your wedding palette.

Though I absolutely adore each and every one of her bowties, I’m secretly coveting this pale blue patterned one for my husband-to-be. If you want to spoil your man for the Big Day, I highly recommend you take a look...
