Supplier of the week – Whesthill
Handmade stationery is such a lovely way to begin the wedding invitation process and nobody knows that more than Kate at Whesthill – stylists in stationery. Kate has given us an account of why she feels stationery is key at a wedding and the little extra touches which Whesthill offer to their brides and grooms. Over to Kate to talk all things stationery …
In 2010, wedding stationery can be as creative, colourful or as individual as the Bride and Groom. Brides and Grooms are looking to organise a wedding which their guests will remember forever – they want to be imaginative in all aspects of the day, but also being aware of the budget they have set for the great day ahead.
Popular demands for this season are vivid colours, combinations of two contrasting colours and textured papers. Colours we have already worked with have been combinations of dark grey and dusky pink, black and shocking pink, yellow and orange, turquoise and hot pink and orange and hot pink – just to get the creative juices flowing.
For couple’s who don’t want to stand out from the crowd and be more traditional, we have been embellishing invitations with ribbon adding the bride and grooms name in silver or gold for a more personalised feel. We can also add the picture of a venue (with the venues permission) to create a bespoke and classic feel.
Whesthill endeavor to make the back of the invite as interesting as the front, colour coordinate the envelopes – why not it’s your wedding day! For complete luxury we have heavy weight board envelopes made to measure and made to colour. We never make any invitation design twice, although we may create variations on a theme.
Not sure what you want?! Brides, Grooms and mums if you wish are invited to spend the afternoon with us in the idyllic setting of the Peak District and create your own Wedding Stationery. The only limit to our creativity is your imagination! So whether you want your invites to be light with a sophisticated flair, bright fresh and juicy or just oozing chocolaty richness come and join us for a coffee and a cupcake and we will start creating.
Handmade to Whesthill really means handmade – every item is printed on our premises, every piece of ribbon and board foiled individually – all the time we try not to be disrupted with the magnificent views of the Peak District from our unique office in the heart of a working farm.
… the start of a lovely event in your life begins when a wedding invitation drops through your letterbox…..
