Rachael Connerton Photo Shoot

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…

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…

Mr and Mrs Unique

The Ethereal Garden

14th October 2015

Whilst searching for laser cut cards, Samantha Greenhalgh found our website and felt our stationery would perfectly compliment a wedding styled shoot she was planning. The theme she said was slightly unusual and would we be interested in sending something special for the shoot! ‘It’s going to be an all white colour shoot with a focus on texture and form with unusual details’ she told us. We loved the idea and soon we were sharing links to her secret Pinterest board for inspiration! Gothic touches with bones and lace and Sami had found the most stunning ethereal model, just perfect for…

Amy & Sean

8th November 2012

We first met Amy last November at the Save the Date show. She’d already found us online but took the opportunity to come & chat with us in person at the show. Amy saw the Vintage Garden Party invitation & (in her own words) fell in love with it! She chose to have laser cut invitations with a manilla inlay & ivory ribbon. She had matching manilla place tags, name cards & table plan cards. Everything was finished with calligraphy for the perfect final touch. Amy & Sean married in June this year, afterwards their talented photographer Lucy Stendall shared some photographs…

The camera never lies!

13th March 2011

Brides-to-be looking for a beautifully bespoke album of memories from their big day may wish to pay photographer Rachel Spivey  a visit. Her contemporary and informal style has been proving a hit for years, famous for capturing the warmth and emotions of the occasion. Rachel avoids the usual full-scale photo shoot concept, opting for a more discreet level of coverage and the result is relaxed, natural and full of expression. We are sure you agree that her work is simply exquisite. Have a look at the website for more inspiration…

Click Click … Smile

14th July 2010

If you are looking for a wedding photographer with a huge amount of passion, good personality, and a great eye…then this is your man. We came across Simon Fazackarley on the fab Rock My Wedding website, after he did a last minute stand in for a wedding, where the couple had been let down by their photographer. …His pictures are beautiful, fun and quirky but more than that he just seems like a dead nice guy to have at your wedding! “My story is simple…Whilst training to be a world famous graphic designer*, I found my true passion in engagement &…
