helpful wedding info & t&c's

I know wedding planning can be stressful so my aim is make sure your stationery is the easiest part. 


Once contacted I'll instruct you to fill out the bespoke wedding design form. Once submitted, I'll get in contact with you and collect any extra information I need in order to provide you with a tailored quote. If you are happy to proceed we will convert your quote to an invoice whereby a 50% deposit will be required. I will send this to you along with my T&C's and a wedding details from for you to complete.


Once I have received your deposit payment and wording I will start the designs and complete artwork by the date agreed on our initial email conversations. General timings are listed below but please make sure you check with me availability upon booking. We will then approve and print - the exciting part! Your designs will arrive via email as pdf drafts. At this stage I'll need you to double check the design and detail and let me know of any changes required.


Once the designs are finalised and have a sign off approval from you, I will require the remaining balance before the artwork is released for print production. Once I have assembled your order in full and everything is carefully packaged I will notify you via email and arrange for delivery using a courier service or collection.

terms & conditions


Bespoke designs require an extra cost, and will vary depending on the job. You'll be given an estimate in your initial quote before work commences. I am happy to make amendments within reason, but reserve the right to increase the fee if a large amount of additional work is required. 


Unfortunately things happen that mean you may have to cancel your order. I reserve the right to charge for work done to date. For bespoke work, orders cancelled after the proof has been approved by you will be charged in full and the balance is due immediately. Refunds are only given at my discretion.


If you would like me to design your bespoke wedding invitations it is required to provide a 50% deposit to reserve your date in the calendar. After a proof of the deposit, I will create a timeline specifically for your wedding. We will then work together to create your wedding invitation suite. Please read the T&Cs before ordering and contact me if you have any additional questions about this process.
