Bespoke wedding invitations tailoring every last detail to you.
By choosing the bespoke route, our collective imaginations can run wild, adding layers of meaning, beautiful textures and elegant finishing touches to every piece of your wedding invitations and on-the-day paper goods.
You may have a favourite flower you wish to include in your invitations. Or like Jessica and Phillip, you dream of a fine art illustration of your venue. Your wedding like Carol and Ivor may have different parts to the day that require variations on the invitation.
With bespoke wedding stationery, you can tailor each item to your day. I understand that planning your wedding can be a lot of work. By working together I can help you organise all the elements to make things less complicated. So you can relax and concentrate on the most important part of your day – celebrating your love for one another.
Let’s start your stationery enquiry with an informal chat, you can tell me all about your wedding day, your dreams and how your want your guests to feel when your invitation arrives.

Telling your story
Delving into the tiny details is my happy place and when it comes to stationery, there are so many ways we can finesse and refine your designs to create something a little bit magical. Creating bespoke wedding invites and stationery that your loved ones will adore.
Bespoke hand-drawn details
Imagine hand-painted motifs of the flowers in your bouquet with subtle watercolour washes in your wedding’s colour palette, elements of your venue sketched in a romantic, loose style or delicate pen and ink floral monograms unique to the two of you.
Picture stunningly soft papers, seeded with bee-friendly wildflowers to plant after your summer wedding day’s over, or lusciously tactile handmade paper with deckled edges, bound together with hand-dyed ribbon, and finished with a wax seal in antique gold.
Imagine banqueting tables lit by the flicker of candles, and personalised menus wrapped in eco-friendly vellum, or embellished with a cotton tassel or silken bow. You tell me your vision and the things you love most, and I’ll create a thoughtful, considered design that’s meant just for you.

“Every single piece was beautiful. And all made with sustainable materials too. My partner and I couldn't be happier and would recommend working with Simone in a heartbeat.”
The bespoke design process
Click the link here to head over to my enquiry form. Simply fill out and give me some initial information about your wedding day and the stationery required. This can include save the date, invitations and on the day stationery.
We’ll book in a no-obligation consultation call, where you can tell me all about your wedding day plans, the things that are important to you and your thoughts on colour, style, budget etc.
I’ll put together a quote based on the idea we’ve discussed, and if you’re keen to go ahead, you can pay 50% deposit and sign your contract. Please note, if your wedding is more than 8 months away, you can simply pay a £100 booking fee that enables you to reserve your dates in my diary and finalise your details when you are ready to start designing.
Here comes the fun part – it’s design time! I will get sketching and researching the perfect combination of sustainable materials and fabulous finishes, and will send you detailed style sheets explaining how everything will come together. You’ll see the overall design, plus notes on the exact colours, papers and detailing that will be used. Take time with your feedback at this stage, and let me know what you love, and what might need tweaking. I can amend your design if anything isn’t right – your happiness is the most important thing to me throughout this process.
You’ll receive a final pdf proof with any changes that were required for you to approve and give your final sign off. Then it’s off to print for your beautiful stationery, at one of my carefully selected printers who value sustainability as much as I do.
They’ve arrived! I’ll check over everything to make sure the finishes and print quality are exactly as they should be, and I’ll add any finishing touches that we’ve agreed on, before assembling the invites with love, and carefully packaging them up to post to you.

I always aim to be transparent about pricing so you will always receive a full quotation in before we move forward with your booking.

My bespoke design fee starts from £350 for a typographic-only design and from £550 for an illustrated design.

Production and printing costs that are in addition to the design fee cover your raw materials such as premium sustainable papers, envelopes and finishings.
Intricate details such as a map or a venue illustration are available as add-ons.
For typographic-only invitation designs, there is a design fee of £350 in addition to the wedding stationery production and printing costs.
