Wow! Where did that year go?! And what a wonderful, jam- packed, exciting one it was too! I've had invitations coming out of my ears, from rustic to glam and everything in between, I've designed and produced lots of different and unique day stationery, from do not disturb signs to huge welcome signs, and then there has also been a lot of business stationery on the go and new brands that I've been working with... It's been crazy! Did I mention that there has been several collaborative photo-shoots, wedding fairs, meetings and relationships formed with wedding suppliers and wedding venues AND a re-launch of the website too?! Oh and I've moved studios/ house and got a little fur baby too- Lewi, a very naughty miniature dachshund!

WEDDING VENUE PARTNER : ECKINGTON MANOR
A beautiful venue in the lovely village of Eckington (near Bredon). I have collaborated with the team at Eckington and created two different bespoke wedding invitations. Looking forward to working more with them in 2018.
THE LAUNCH OF THE TAILORED COLLECTION
A small collection of Wedding Invitation Suites designed to make it easier for my clients. These are tailored to suit my clients, colours, fonts, wording, etc, thus still very much personalised; it's not like ordering off Etsy or NOTHS for example. Hopefully, there is something for everyone, if not, we go down the Bespoke route. Have a look for yourself.
SAVE THE DATE TAGS
A similar concept to the Tailored Collection, Save the Date tags, designed here at Retro Press, making it easy and affordable for my clients. View more on by clicking here...
