Photoshoot at Lapstone Barn

We have recently been lucky enough to be apart of a fantastic styled shoot at the fabulous venue,
Lapstone Barn, which is located in the heart of the Cotswolds.

The stationery we created for the shoot was solely inspired by the fabulous mood board created by Jane from Tulle & Blue. The muted blue tones mixed with the greys, burnt gold and greens were the focus for me. I wanted to design something soft, whimsical and beautiful to enhance the overall elegant and mystical tone of the shoot. Everything has been hand printed and hand made with love and also hand painted – using a watercolour wash to create the backdrop to all artworks. Everything we designed is in keeping with all the other pieces giving a natural flow; stationery items include, a pocket-fold invitation with matte gold foiling, place name tags, gold foiled menu cards, table numbers, seating plan cards which hang from the foliage hoop and a welcome sign.

We absolutely loved being involved in this shoot and seeing everything come together; it’s so important
that all elements of your Big Day matches and compliments each other and this just highlights that. Have a look at just a few of the amazing photographs taken by Joanna Briggs below… All suppliers can be found below the images.

Bespoke Invitation Design for Lapstone Barn 🌿

Lapstone Barn is definitely up there with one of my favourite wedding venues! If you are haven’t yet decided where to get married, I would highly recommend visiting this stunning Cotswold wonderland.

Having recently just had the pleasure of exhibiting at their latest Wedding Fair on Sunday, I felt it was only appropriate to create a new, exciting, bespoke invitation design especially for couples getting married at this exquisite venue.

When it comes to your wedding invitations, it’s very important to reflect the overall theme and vibe of what you want your Big Day to be. After all, receiving your invitations is the very first insight into your wedding that your guests will get… Make sure its a good one!

With this in mind, I wanted to create an invitation for the barn that is elegant, easily adaptable (in terms of the colours) and truly unique to couples getting married there. I have hand drawn the barn which features at the top of the invitation and printed it in rose gold. You can easily change this to suit you and your theme of your Big Day- so silver, gold, copper, etc. I have hand painted a watercolour wash of green which is behind the names- again this is easily adaptable or even erasable if you’d prefer. I chose to go with this colour with the watercolour and the pocketfold envelope to reflect the vast, green landscape that surrounds the Barn.

For more details, please do get in touch, I’d love to hear more about your wedding.

Bespoke Wedding Invitation Design for Lapstone Barn 🌿

I am absolutely elated to be now affiliated with the beautiful Cotswold wedding venue, Lapstone Barn. Situated close to Broadway and other neighbouring villages such as Chipping Campden, it's the perfect location for a perfect countryside wedding.

Upon visiting Lapstone, I had a clear vision of what kind of wedding invitation I was going to design for them... I was blown away by the vast, luscious green views that surrounded the barn and I wanted to capture this within the invitation. The other striking thing that hit me about this venue was that it had an air of elegance and sophistication to it, more like a stately home rather than a rustic barn type feel. Again, I wanted to reflect this in the design.

Here's a little bit of 'behind the scenes' / process shots for you...

So as you can see, I have used a few different processes to create these; the first being the hand painted watercolour element. I wanted to capture the landscape with this watercolour wash and also make it personalised to the barn by recreating their motif. The second is hot foiling; I wanted to add a bit of 'sparkle' to the invites and I wanted to illustrate the beautiful fairy lights that run down their function room. The foiled element of the invitations can be in any colour, as can the watercolour wash- it's important to reflect YOUR Big Day, so I do always suggest having the splashes of your chosen colour scheme within your invitations.

Here is the final bespoke design I came up for the Barn... If you like what you see, please do get in touch to discuss your options. I would also highly recommend giving Lapstone a visit if you haven't already- you'll fall in love with the place as much as I did!

Lapstone Barn Wedding Venue 💒

So I went to visit the beautiful new wedding venue that is Lapstone Barn last week. Based in Chipping Campden, surrounded by just the most idyllic, luscious green countryside; it makes for the most perfect Cotswold Wedding venue around.


The drive up to it, in itself, was super impressive and instantly, upon arrival, I fell in love with the place straight away. It's got a very cosy, warming vibe to it, with a very cute reception area before entering the most amazing space in which the ceremonies take place. They can take up to 200 seated guests, for the ceremony and for the evening- a much larger capacity than most other barn venues. The thing that struck me the most about this barn in particular, was the light; it was exceptionally light throughout, which again, is quite unusual for this type of venue. I especially loved the old milking parlour that is now the dining/ evening space- the industrial yet country feel to it makes it so unique, vast and different. It even has it's own very cool bar area, with comfy armchairs and a log inspired fireplace - a perfect place to let your party feet have a rest! There's a fantastic courtyard in the middle of the barn, in which they can hold outside ceremonies... Amazing!!


If you haven't yet been to Lapstone to have a visit, you need to get up there! The team that run it are great, so very helpful and welcoming. I understand that dates are filling up fast, so you need to be quick! I'm very much looking forward to working with this venue in the near future and  have got some exciting things coming up... watch this space! If you have already booked and you are planning your wedding, please do get in touch about your stationery- let's make it all as dreamy as the venue 💕 Check out the website: www.lapstonebarn.co.uk
