Faye, please could you tell us about your business and how you started Wild Calligraphy?
Wild Calligraphy is a Custom Calligraphy Studio specialising in on-the-day Wedding Stationery. I’ve always loved hand-writing. I was the go-to bubble writer throughout GCSE group tasks turned flip-chart master at Uni. My mum encouraged me to create our signage when I couldn’t find the perfect fit for our venue, heaps of training and practise later and it has evolved into my lovely business.
What stationery / products do you offer couples?
How does the process work?
When you get in touch, I’ll recommend options for each item you would like, of different materials at different price points. I encourage clients to chop and change until they’re happy. Once the final items and quantities are decided you’ll be sent an invoice.
You may either:
- pay in full and receive items soon after OR
- pay a 50% deposit with the final payment due 8 weeks prior to the wedding date. Your items will be sent at least 4 weeks before your wedding.
What inspires you with your design work?
So many different factors! But mostly the initial chats I have with clients. I try to get as much information from you as possible, the venue you’ve chosen, details that are important to you about your day and your plans, flowers you might love, colours you want in the wedding. I’ll then make suggestions and we’ll go from there. You can have as much or as little input as you like.
What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?
I love reliving the excitement of getting engaged and hearing people’s stories, but my favourite has to be feedback when clients have received their items. I work so hard to produce next level work that will WOW your guests and make great keepsakes for years to come, so I love it when clients are over the moon with their custom items.
Who would be your dream client?
I love stripped back, intimate weddings but equally appreciate huge outdoor parties! Your wedding is a reflection of you and we’re all so different. I’d say one thing that connects my clients is that they’re detail orientated people who appreciate the skill in what I do. You can keep up to date with all things WILD on Instagram @wildcalligraphygb and I’d love to hear from you.
Wild Calligraphy are the perfect choice if you want swoon-worthy stationery for your celebration!
