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…

A Blenheim Palace Fairytale

11th October 2017

We’ve had such a busy summer with lots of exciting projects. When Lucy & Daniel got in touch we chatted through their plans and just loved the ideas they were putting together. They had seen our ‘Fairytale Design‘ which they liked but wanted to create something truly bespoke with the same feel as this design. The stunning Blenheim Palace had been booked for their reception so they felt it would be wonderful to include this as a backdrop and to create their own fairy tale wedding invitation design. Both Lucy and Daniel are vets and have lots of animals! They wanted…

P.S Will you marry me?

21st July 2017

We mentioned in our last post that we’d heard so many wonderful love stories this summer. This one made us all stop working…it was truly the most amazing and oh so romantic proposal ever. It was a manic Monday morning as normal in the studio, there was a flurry of processing all the weekend orders, filling post bags and clock watching to get everything picked, made and wrapped. We sell our greetings cards and stationery on Not On The High Street and we’d had an order for a hand written card. Not so strange, we get lots every day, but the…

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!…

Icing on the Cake

27th April 2017

Confession time! OK, so we do sometimes get rather carried away with the whole wedding details thing but who’s not loving a cake topper!  For us it all started one day with just messing around after we’d laser cut some wooden artworks. We simply tried one to match our Garden Party design and ‘hey presto’ there it was in all its perfect glory just needing a cake! I have to say it looked gorg, laser cut in a thin wood laminate. Then the very next customer to make an appointment came into the showroom and declared ‘I’m having one of those!!!’ Before…

Easter Weekend!

10th April 2017

So you can’t wait for the long Easter weekend! A few days to escape for a break in a cute cottage, a catch up with friends or a chance to do all those jobs around the home. Personally after this last weekend of sun, I can’t wait for another excuse for some fresh air and some hard graft in the garden. It’s been great to bring out the table and chairs and sit with a coffee or a chilled glass of white, see that’s how hard I was working!  It’s been a hectic couple of months with Valentines and Mother’s Day…

Paper Cut Table PlanTree

5th April 2017

Table plans are one of those really important elements that just about every wedding needs. Couples are always looking for new ways to make a statement and last year we were asked by one of our brides to paper cut our Garden Party design as a large tree. Claire and Aaron had chosen the Garden Party design for their invitations using ocean blue and were wanting to use the same design for their ‘on the day’ stationery too. So we enlarged the design and hand cut the tree, the table plan cards were then printed and mounted on cards that were…
