Don Your Tweed

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

I love tweed, I love everything that is associated with tweed. I have lived a very tweed clad life, and I will continue to do so. When I saw that Nikki Ward from Knots and Kisses had released her English Eccentrics range, I had to get in on the action. From country garden to country manor, this stationary range is a wonderful compliment to a vintage themed wedding. So call in the hounds, sip some tea and look out over the land…

Biography: I grew up in a small village outside Birmingham and moved to London area when I was 18 to study Fashion Promotion & Illustration. After that I worked for many years as a Visual Merchandiser before taking a break for a year to travel the world! I decided to set up Knots & Kisses Wedding Stationery 2 years ago after helping style and produce all the wedding stationery for my sister’s wedding and for a few colleagues and friends weddings over the years.

Business: I work from my home in Harlow, Essex but we can provide stationery nationwide ( or even overseas with additional shipping fees! ). I also offer a bespoke service which can be done via email or phone, or if the couple are local I can come to their homes.Where do you get your inspiration from: I tend to be quite eclectic when it comes to inspiration. I read a lot of fashion and interiors magazines and often find trends from both areas filter into the wedding industry quite quickly. But mainly I have a passion for jewellery, vintage clothes, haberdashery and fabrics and like to work these into the stationery I create. I also draw inspiration from different eras, the new English Eccentrics range was based a lot on Victoriana, and I love the fifties and seventies as well.

How long does the average piece take to make: It can depend. An off the peg invitation from one of our collections on the website can usually be made in about 15 minutes. However, coming up with a new design or designing a piece of bespoke stationery for a couple can be a matter of hours or even days! I’m a bit of a perfectionist so will often reject several designs before I come up with the one I think is perfect for that couples wedding!
