The journey of crafting wedding boards began with my own wedding in 2015. We had a simple reception filled with flowers and I was searching to create something a little different and memorable. Alongside my talented Mum, we experimented with many ideas and ended up creating a set of wooden signs.
Since then I have found the greatest joy in helping with other's weddings, I love everything about watching two people deeply in love celebrate with their nearest & dearest. It is such an honour to have even the smallest part in someone's special day.
Each board is carefully selected, sanded, stained and varnished. I then go through a careful process of hand lettering and proofing a design before painting it onto the board. Each one is therefore wonderfully unique.
Some of my previous work
Wooden place cards
I've recently added wooden handlettered place cards to my collection, they not only make a modern and memorable place card, but make great wedding favours for guests.
1. What should I get on my board?
Absolutely anything! Here's some ideas to get you started...
- Names & date of wedding
- Favourite quote, song lyric or bible verse
- Your unique wedding hashtag
- A wedding timeline
- Welcome message to guests
2. Can I choose something that's not on that list?
YES! I love hearing bride's (and groom's!) creative thoughts, wild plans and big ideas! Get in touch with me and I'm sure we can work something out.
3. What else can you make?
I can also create large seating chart signs, menu boards, drink selection signs, hand lettered wishing wells and thank you signs. I have made signs to hang over chairs and sit on tables as well as custom chalkboards... It's not limited to wood either, glass is a great material to handletter.
4. How much notice do you need?
The more time before your big day the better, I suggest at least a month....however I have answered to last minute cries for help a few days out before.
5. How much are your boards?
Due to the custom nature of each wedding, I encourage you to get in touch with me so we can work out exactly what you need. However for simple requests, I have a basic price list below.
