Wedding Day Handkerchief

7th November 2018 Mother of the Bride Wedding Hankie Rose Gold

Wedding day handkerchiefs are a wedding tradition that couples are loving. A thoughtful, beautiful and treasured keepsake to give the bride and groom, mothers and fathers of the bride and groom, grandma, sister and or course the best man too, on the big day. A memento to remember your special day. So where and when did the tradition of a wedding handkerchief begin? The actual wedding hanky tradition is thought to have begun in the Southern States of America. Often a wedding handkerchief was passed down through many generations and the hanky sometimes even served a dual purpose as one of the bride’s “something old, something…

The Wedding Garter

14th September 2018 GRACE IVORY GUIPURE GARTER

Satin & Lace and Oh So Adorable! So does the wedding tradition of tossing the garter make you laugh or cringe? Wearing a beautiful garter is still going strong but believe me you really don’t have to have your husband remove your garter and toss it to all the single men at your wedding! If you don’t want to embrace the garter toss, just wear your garter for you. When the garter, ‘will I won’t I’ question arises, many others do too, such as which leg do you wear it on? What colour should it be? Who buys the garter? How far…

Here’s some of the inspirational shapes and decorations we’ve been loving.         We’ve got our own take on modern geo designs for one of our greeting card collections.

Under the Stars at Anran

When Emma & Mike came to us, they had a really clear idea of the style of invitation they wanted. A wedding is probably one of the most important occasions in anyone’s life! Emma and Mike had chosen their perfect venue carefully after visiting quite a few. Their venue had to feel friendly and fun but at the same be unique, elegant and exciting, to make the whole experience the most memorable it could be. There has to be a few surprises too for their guests. They had decided upon the stunning luxury boutique wedding venue, Aran in the heart of Devon for…

Happy Day

14th February 2018

Some days I just have to pinch myself at how lucky I am. I have such a wonderful inspirational, creative and hard working team who put up with my endless requests, questions, design thoughts and ideas. Today I’m working from my home office as I’m needing a little time out to focus the mind and sort lots of lovely quotes for wedding stationery orders. My pups are curled up on the sofa, the ducks are making rather a lot of noise in the garden and my cat is chilling in the dog basket! As a little thank you to my very…

13th February 2018 Ethereal Laser cut invite

Our dear friend, inspirational photographer and secret spa indulger (we both share a love for Ragdale Hall!) Rachael Connerton, has just posted the most wonderful and oh so generous feature on little old Hummingbird Cards. We always knew she had a stationery obsession but when she popped into the studio for a wonderful day of shooting we certainly found out, we just couldn’t stop her clicking away. And I can’t believe how magical it was, we had a giggle, drank cups of tea and the results you can see were stunning. Head over to Rachael and Ian’s journal for more….. Thank…

The Floral Monogram

19th January 2018

A new wedding season has started so we have been looking back at some of our favourite projects from last year.  Let’s just say this design for Victoria & Matt was one of those. We love the ‘something old, something new’ tradition and this invite mixes these perfectly. An elegant, romantic floral design, laser cut with trailing roses surrounding a monogram, but the style was modern, a unique pocket-fold.  The invite folded out to reveal the invitation, a poem and all the little extra cards, wedding details and RSVP cards, neatly tucked away in a pretty pocket. The delicate design looked dreamy…

Whimsical Butterfly

11th January 2018 BUTTERFLY f

Some days are busier than others and some days turn out strangely more exciting than others! After a phone call to the studio the HB team were excited by the prospect of a new project. We’d been asked to create some laser cut butterflies to top some patisserie for an afternoon tea event. We started sketching and playing around with ideas for laser cut butterflies to top the mini patisseries being created. These are some of our paper cut prototypes!     Our little winged lovelies headed to London and one of the butterfly designs, in two sizes was chosen in black…
