we’re taking a break to..

27th May 2022

After the craziness of the past couple of years, Platinum Jubilee celebrations and half term to spend time with precious family, we felt now was the perfect time to take a short break. The studio will be closed from Friday 27th May to Monday 6th June. We’ll get back to all your messages when we’re back in. See you soon. All at HB.

2022 Wedding Stationery Trends

25th March 2022

Bows Are Back! After the last two years it’s now time… time for fabulous big bridal festivities – it’s go big or go home! Couples are turning up the glamour and we’re loving the emerging trends with a touch of Regency grandeur – inspired by Bridgerton no doubt and a sprinkling of 80’s glamour! Brides are ready to go all-out with their dresses, so say goodbye to simple, minimal dresses and hello to bold and beautiful. So how do you do that? Just add a bow, bold and playful bows, big ones, little ones and everything in between. There’s something utterly…

‘No Children’ wording ideas for invitations

14th March 2022

This is the one question we get asked the most! How do I tell my guests I’m not inviting their kids? So to save time, trying to delicately find the right words, we thought we’d put together some ideas and suggestions on how to respectfully tell your guests that their little ones are not on the guest list! Whilst some parents may leap and punch the air at the idea of a day, an evening or in some cases a whole night off, away from their children, is a gift and a great excuse to let their hair down, have a…

Goodbye 2021… hello 2022!

2nd January 2022

We’re taking a moment to reflect on last year… it wasn’t quite as we’d planned, was it? Last year was so challenging for so many of us so we’re hoping that 2022 is going to bring back life as we know it, some exciting times and calm after the storm. Through it all though we’ve actually had an amazing year. We’ve learnt so much about ourselves and our little business, how strong and resilient we can be and how we can find positivity when your wedding business just stopped. The year brought more creativity, more kindness and a beautiful collaboration with…

From Monday 18th October, Hummingbird is taking a little holiday! It’s been a crazy old 19 months, hasn’t it? For all but the first week back on the 21st March 2020, somehow, we managed to stay open through the lockdown. Thankfully we managed to diversify and without weddings, we concentrated our creative minds on our greeting card and gifts collection, now called Hummingbird Homebody. And thanks to you and all your lovely orders we’ve been sooo busy! So before the craziness that Christmas can be, we’re taking a week off to recharge the batteries and to reset, refresh and reignite our…

Wedding Planning Pandemic Style

9th July 2020

It’s now 100 days after lockdown and we are starting to emerge, hopefully like beautiful butterflies from a chrysalis. During these strange and sad times, it has been heartbreaking listening to personal wedding circumstances and receiving messages from Brides and Grooms, and those within our little happy family of the wedding industry too. Countless sad stories of all the wedding plans broken and devastated by this disease and the daily uncertainty we are coping with. One minute you were in wedding planning mode, you had the venue booked, the invites sent, you’d got the dress, and then the pandemic happened! We…

Diamond Wedding Lockdown Hero

10th June 2020

Throughout lockdown, we all have our own personal and incredible stories of how someone has come to the help of another. I was so touched by one of these stories, an amazing act of kindness to help a couple get their 60th Diamond Wedding Anniversary cards, it is such a lovely tale to tell! During lockdown, I was contacted by a gentleman who had an idea to surprise his wife. Myra & Peter were not going to be able to celebrate their special anniversary of 60 years of marriage with friends and family, but Peter had a surprise plan for his…

Let Him Know You Love Him With all the lovely sun we’ve been having lately you’ll be feeling like summer will be here soon! But first, we’ve got a very important date for all the dads out there. Yep Father’s Day! Although we don’t need a specific date to celebrate the most important man in our lives, every dad in the country does get his special day on the calendar. But with lockdown still in place as I write and post this blog we sadly can’t be planning BBQ’s and family get together’s this year. That doesn’t ease the amount of…
