As promised, albeit a little later than scheduled, this week’s blog post is a round up of our Wedding of the Month Featured Brides, but from Zoë’s perspective! We get so much detail from the bride and grooms about their big day, we thought it would be interesting to hear the designer’s perspective..
So without further “I do..” (see what I did there?) let’s go back in time to 2016, and recap all our fabulous Feature Bride’s weddings!
Mr & Mrs Rimmer
“Quite a challenging set of stationery as we had a change of brief mid way through the planning. Combining both vintage and rustic styles, never done this before!”
Mr & Mrs Crawford
“This was the movie themed wedding, so obviously was amazing and unique. My favourite part was designing the table plan to look like a real movie poster.”
Mr and Mrs Coulton
‘This was the cutest wedding I've ever worked on. Such intricate detail adding 3D bunting to each of the invitations. It was a lovely touch inviting the guests from the kids, as it said 'mummy and daddy are getting married' on the front.”
Mr and Mrs Barker
“This was a very special wedding to me as I've known the groom for a very long time. My favourite part of this was the table plan, the use of such intricate lace and subtle colours on a ornate vintage mirror made it gorgeous.”
Mr & Mrs Noonan
“Holly and Tom's wedding was lovely with a rustic Italian theme. My favourite part was designing the invitations themselves, simple use of colours - black and gold - with olive branch detail incorporated throughout.”
Mr and Mrs Butterworth
“Cally and Chris are very close friends of mine and I was actually invited to the wedding! Unfortunately, I was unable to make it as I was at a family funeral. My favourite part of this wedding was creating the table plan! It was based around a map of Rome, where Chris proposed.”
Mr and Mrs Binns
“Katie and her mother-in-law to be came into my shop in Colne just a couple of weeks after I opened. She had an elegant vintage wedding with lots of lace, pearls and sparkles. We became very good friends over the next 18 months and it was a pleasure to be invited to the evening reception.”
Mr and Mrs Wensley
“I've known Laura for a long time, so it was a pleasure that she asked me to help make the planning of her wedding a bit easier with her stationery. Laura took one of my existing designs and changed the colour to Cadbury purple, in memory of her late grandmother. My favourite part of this wedding was the table names, which were named after significant years in their lives. These were then propped up with cute pegs that Laura made herself to look like a bride and groom!”
When I spoke with Zoë after she had gone through all the blogs and re-lived her favourite parts of designing for each wedding, she said so sweetly and sincerely, “This has really reminded me just why I love my job.”
Weddings are incredibly personal affairs and Zoë’s job as a designer is to transform someone’s personality and tastes into lasting memories, into moments that guests will remember forever - from the first glimpse at a stunning invitation, to checking for their seat at a table plan adorned with details that make them smile fondly, and the gorgeous personalised guestbook where, ready to sign their own names, your guests look to one another and say, “That is so them!”
Zoë can recall the details of every wedding she’s ever worked on, and knows the privileged position she is in, being entrusted with such an important part of your wedding. It is clearly evident, from her own personal point of view expressed above, and our Brides’ feedback, that you can and should trust her to be part of your special day.
