Painted egg cup wedding favours

Wouldn't these make wonderful mini gifts for your guests to take home after they've been to your wedding?

Wooden egg cups could be painted using colours based on your handmade wedding invitations and wedding theme, then filled with cactus or small wild flowers. A fantastic idea for an eco-friendly wedding favour.

plum jam wedding favours

The plums in our orchard are only just ready for eating.  This year they are very late due to the heavy rainfall we had in July.  

We've picked a few and made plum jam with them.

Wouldn't a small jar of jam make a lovely wedding favour for your guests to take home? 

Here are some ideas using linen fabric and circle labels...

and as an alternative, printed paper with string ties.  Each label could have the bride and grooms names printed along with the wedding date.

They could also coordinate with your handmade wedding invitations and wedding theme. 

Please visit our website for more information.

white sweet pea flowers

I thought these deserved a mention as they are so pretty...white sweet peas.

A very kind friend gave them to me.  She suggested they go on my desk to  inspire me while I make handmade wedding invitations. 

If you look very closely, there is a delicate little pea.

plum wedding stationery

As we move into the autumnal months, a good colour for a wedding is plum.  It is an extremely elegant and classy colour.  

These are various reception items in plum that we have completed for a customer recently.  All their wedding stationery including their handmade wedding invitations, had a similar romantic modern feel.

A tied ribbon or bow gives our handmade wedding invitations a bespoke and designer look.

All of our luxury and classic invites and most of our wedding stationery have ribbons. 

It is also possible to have no ribbons and bows on our stationery. Please mention this when placing your order.

wedding venue - La Grande Maison

Found this little treasure whilst browsing the internet.  
Having been to Pierrefonds and it's chateau, I know what a lovely part of France it is.....

La Grande Maison located in Chelles, only minutes from Pierrefonds is also one hour from Paris, has 5 bedrooms and offers a breakfast. The decor is very pleasing - soft, relaxing colours and textures.

What a lovely venue for a small and intimate wedding?
