Today I am thrilled to be getting to know one of WWW’s newest sponsors, wedding stationery designers A Bird and A Bee. A Bird and A Bee creates vintage and quirky wedding stationery, which I just know you guys are going to love. I just adore the La Di Dah range, so so cute!
Anyway, let’s get to know A Bird and A Bee and the designer behind the pretty paper even more…
Hi Ellie, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?
My name is Ellie & my biggest love and passion in my life is my beautiful little girl Amelie who is 4 and who constantly amazes & amuses me! A very close Second is my love for art & design which started at the age of 5 when I won a painting competition in our local newspaper!
What do you love/dislike about your job?
Working with the most lovely couples who are embarking on an amazing & exciting journey to their big day! I love seeing the photographs (sometimes a year later!) of how our stationery helped set a theme for their special day. I also love the luxury of working from home so I can be flexible around Amelie and be there for her big events!
How did you get into design and into the wedding industry?
I started A Bird & A Bee after I couldn’t find the style of stationery I wanted for my own wedding in 2008, everything was co-ordinating colours, frills and satin ribbons which just wasn’t us! We wanted a relaxed, rustic feel and so I decided to make our own invitations which all our guests complimented us on, and were just want we wanted! After I became a mum I wanted to work from home so decided to jump head first in and launched A Bird & A Bee, it has been a lot of hard work and sleepless night but has definitely all been worth it!
What do you aim to achieve for your clients?
The perfect stationery for their big day – with the service & quality of product they would expect for such a special occasion!
What style is your work?
We specialise in vintage manila brown card as we feel it gives a beautifully rustic feel to the stationery, but to sum us up we sell Vintage & Quirky wedding stationery, for those looking for something a little different for their big day!
Could you tell us some information about your packages/prices?
We fully personalise all stationery, Invites are £2.50, Rsvp Cards £1.50, Save The Date Cards £1.80 & Menus are £2 – for more prices and to see all of our ranges please visit: www.abirdandabee.co.uk
Do you have any tips for couples in selecting their wedding stationery?
I would advise to have an idea of what kind of stationery you would like (formal, casual, vintage, rustic etc) and then do lots of research on the internet or at wedding shows before choosing your supplier. Ordering a sample is a good idea to get a feel of the quality of print/card stock etc. If you have any questions give the company a call/email and have a chat and see if you feel comfortable with them.
How can we get in touch with you?
Beautiful and fun designs. LOVE.
Thanks so much to Ellie for sharing her work with us today XOXO Lou
