Wording Your Perfect Wedding Invitation

21st November 2017 Classic Final  e

Weddings can be a lot of work and just when you think you’ve ticked everything on your to do list, a new list appears! So, you’ve found the perfect invitation but there’s so much more to think about than just what they look like! Design… tick, colour, font and then we ask you what style of invite you like and ask you to send us the wording you’d like to use! It’s often the last thing you’ve had time to carefully consider, but it’s an important part, so we thought we’d put together some quick tips that may help when it…

Spellbound in Keswick!

19th July 2017

Its’s been a busy old summer with lots of beautiful bespoke designs being created here in the HB studio. We’ve also heard so many amazing love stories, so we thought we’d share a few of them with you. When Sarah and Steve got in touch they loved the feel of our ‘Fairy Tale’ design but really wanted something special and unique that would mean something to them. So they decided to start designing one themselves and sent us some ideas. They had got engaged in Keswick, looking out over the vast Derwent Water lake towards the mountains, on ‘their’ now special bench!…

Hummingbird Studio…

1st March 2017

Last year we decided that with limited space in our wedding stationery studio we needed to find a new home for Hummingbird Cards. We found 81 Market Street, the perfect place, high ceilings, lots of big sash windows and natural light and views of the castle! The space looked very ‘tired’ it was your classic corporate office, with purple walls, loads of desks and a carpet that had definitely passed its best before date! The transformation started with new flooring, painted white walls, the installation of lots of shelving and slowly the new HB space started to take shape. We moved…

Dior’s Magical Labyrinth.

6th February 2017

The magical Haute Couture 2017 Spring Summer collection from Dior will surely inspire the creatives of the wedding world, it was so beautiful. Created within a tent was a garden within the gardens of the Musée Rodin.  The entrance gave away clues and transported the guests to a magical environment with a mass of foliage that covered the walls and floors creating a woodland dell. Then a labyrinth of box hedging, paths of moss scattered with leafs and rambling hedges came together to make a modern maze.  Its twists and turns, reflected in a stunning mirrored ceiling, provided the moss-covered route which…

A little love…

2nd February 2017

Yesterday was an absolute joy. After weeks of preparations, creating new designs and perfecting the show room we finally reached 1st February. The day in the diary when Rachael Connerton was coming!!! And it was an absolute dream…we had ‘such fun’ in the words of Miranda! Rachael’s work has always been an inspiration and from our first telephone chat years ago we just seemed to connect. Her work is a ‘mystical mystery’, how does she make something look so incredibly beautiful? Well after a day with Rachael I feel as though I have been left under a spell, I am no…

My Secret Pleasure…

18th November 2016

The post has just landed, an uninspiring heap that you’re rifling through, a hand full of the usual bills, bank statements and take away flyers, when you catch a glimpse of a thick luxurious envelope. ‘Is it my birthday?’ pops into your head, then vanishes as the reality of just another Wednesday dawns. So what is inside this rather lovely surprise,  a beautiful hand enticing mystery, who’s written to me? In an era of emails, texts, Facebook, Twitter and numerous other social media messaging services, a personally hand written letter has become a rare treat in our digital world. Could it…

Wedding Woofers!

11th November 2016

It’s official, we’re dog lovers and just ever so slightly bonkers about our cute canines! A few weeks ago, we posted a feature about wedding day dogs . You just can’t forget about the cutest member of your family, on your big day! Since then our Pinterest page for wedding day dogs (and other animals too) has grown! It’s amazing to see how so many couples are finding creative ways to include their canine BFF’s and how gorgeous these pups are, even taking centre stage. Here’s just a few of our favourite divine doggie darlings! We loved the idea of including your cuties on your…
