Happy Monday All! I couldn’t resist blogging about the new wedding stationery collection Rose Cottage from Knots and Kisses; perfect for a shabby chic Bride, it screams country wedding! Featuring a flora and fauna design, it reminds me of the gorgeous vintage wallpaper that once hung at my Nans house. Delicate, understated and seriously swoonworthy – I adore the vintage stamp details!
Here’s what designer Nikki had to say, ”I wanted to create a design with a brown paper and wood, darker vintage feel. I also really wanted to incorporate my love of vintage stamps … I especially love ones with butterflies on.
The range also comes with a full range of reception stationery, including menus, table numbers, place cards and a new item for me … some guest book postcards, which are great for leaving next to gorgeous boxes or suitcases for your guests to write messages on as an alternative to the traditional guest book! ”
For more information, images and Nikki’s other stunning collections, have a browse of the Knots and Kisses website.
With Love, Boho Bride xx
Swoon! Isn’t this just the most delicious wedding stationery? I was delighted to see an email from Corinne pop up in my inbox on Friday 13th! Unlucky for some, it made my day and her gorgeous designs put such a smile on my face. Introducing A Little Birdie…
Designer Corinne has recently returned to the UK after 7 years in San Francisco, working for paper boutique Union Street Papery; ” I was surrounded by so many gorgeous invitations and gifts; I couldn’t help but get a twinkle in my eye. With so many happy brides to be, getting excited about their invitations and planning for their big day, it was infectious.
I love creating something unique and different each time I use the letterpress. I never know exactly what effect it will create. I love that my machine was made over a hundred years ago, in Cramlington, a small town in the North of England, near my family. It ties me to this countryside. I like the traditional process but I want my cards to be playful and modern too.”
And the oh-so-cute name? “I worked with a lot of girls at the printing boutique and we were always gossiping and chirping like the birds outside my window, so one day it occurred to me to name my shop A Little Birdie. When you open a card it’s like a little bird is chirping good news in your ear.”
A Little Birdie offers bespoke, custom design, digital & letterpress wedding invitations, stationery, announcements and much more and all the pieces are custom made. For a free, personalised sample, and to find out more about these gorgeous designs, please visit the website.
Thanks so much for sharing Corinne! With Love, Boho Bride xx
Following Fridays bespoke mood board, it seemed so appropriate to feature Knot’s and Kisses gorgeous new range, English Eccentrics! Designed and handmade by Nikki Ward, a trained fashion illustrator turned wedding stationer – with an impeccable eye for wedding design, this latest range was inspired by her love of all things vintage. Influenced by circus flyer’s, English tweeds and the decadent Victorian era…it’s a stunning collection!
Discovering inspiring creatives in the wedding world is one of the stand-out pleasures of writing this blog and when I first happened upon Vicky Trainor Vintage Inspired Stationary, my heart fluttered. Imagine then, when a couple of months later I had the pleasure of opening an email entitled ‘An Introduction’ to discover that Vicky had not only found her way to Boho Bride – but was giving me a peek of her latest project ‘The Vintage Drawer Label’ and her ‘Made With Love’ collection…
Many heart palpitations later, I’ve not really managed to edit the amount of images Vicky sent – I want to share them all with you. Every single piece of the ‘Made With Love’ collection looks like it’s brimming with care and affection. So aptly named – I hand you over to Vicky Trainor, who’s written a wonderful introduction…
“The idea behind our new little collection ‘made with love’ arrived one day whilst sorting and organising my endless boxes of collected haberdashery. At the bottom of this box was my little sewing case that I made when I was 7 years old. I spent hours, when I was younger, collecting and making endless pieces, some useful some not so useful, pressing flowers, organising my grandma’s button box….
We were starting to work on ideas, at the time, for new collections for 2011-2012 – we wanted to create something very different to our current printed collections and we had been researching embroidery and haberdashery from the 40’s and early 50’s and, from this, ‘made with love’ was born. This collection is the first to be created from our new ‘Vintage Drawer’ label.
