There are 3 reasons why I am already in love with Boris and Doris…
1) I love the name Boris, it is on my list of dog names ( I named this cushion Boris in the mean time…)
2) They used fruit sherbets in one of their photos
3) Its all so ruddy pretty!
So here is a bit about Boris and Doris
Boris and Doris are Briony and James. We’re both in our late twenties, met in London and have moved to Kent to be nearer to pretty pubs and parks. We have designed a range of invitations and are currently creating other stationery such as bunting, message tree cards, place cards, and thank you cards.
Boris & Doris started out as a sketch on a napkin on a summer’s day, as Briony and James were picnicking with friends. We had been asked to design a friend’s wedding stationery, and created our first collection. We enjoyed it so much, that we decided to take the plunge and start up Boris & Doris. We’ve never looked back, and have loved creating beautiful designs over tea and cake.
Briony loves looking at vintage fabrics and dresses, reading wedding blogs (particularly ones with a 1950s or country garden theme), and can’t resist anything which is floral or kitsch. James has the difficult job of turning Briony’s pretty ideas into an invitation.
An unusual fact about Boris and Doris
Briony – I own over 400 pairs of knickers (another weakness – I can’t resist buying any which are floral, heart covered, or kitsch) and theme them to what I’m doing in the day!
James – I have a big weakness for trying new cheeses and always pick some up wherever we go. Our fridge usually has at least seven different types in!
