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…
