CRIMSON LETTERS

My company, Crimson Letters creates unique hand painted wedding stationery, specialising in opulently painted, heavily illustrated design work, with calligraphy. All items are digitally printed from a master watercolour or acrylic artwork piece and individually and lovingly painted upon. Using only the finest papers and card stock sourced from London And Paris.

I’m a British designer with a degree in textile design, artist and a person with a passion for intricate creativity who’s inspired by all fine things, whether it’s food, interiors or architecture. I’m influenced heavily by my love of travelling, my rich heritage and travelling frequently through the Mediterranean where I have family in Portugal and Paris. I’m exhilarated and humbled by the beauty of this world. Bringing these ideas back to my design studio, each piece is fuelled from the cultures across the world.

I enjoy bringing a fresh decadent approach to wedding invitations, which are a timeless medium. I have always loved weddings and seeing the bride in her white dress has always been a magical moment for me. I feel completely over the moon to be able to create irreplaceable memoirs that the bride can look back on one day with a huge smile.

When I’m not busy in my design studio, I love exploring new parts of Europe, trying to improve my hopelessly basic French and Portuguese skiing, cross stitching, kissing my sons, watching period dramas and painting whilst drinking copious amounts of tea.

Handmade Canadian Wedding

I just love wedding details that come from unexpected places. Bride Steph borrowed her parents’ dining room hutch to serve as altar decoration, and it helped to make the big day that much more personal! Sweet Heirloom Photography did an amazing job of taking in all of the special touches put together by the couple and their friends and family — see them all in the gallery.

From the bride, Steph: The photobooth backdrop was made from a load of fabric scraps and a lot of spare time (watched a good portion of Mad Men Season 1 and 2 while making those bunting flags). The hutch for the ceremony altar lived in my parents’ dining room over the past several years… It was kind of neat being married in front of something I grew up with. All wood disks and stumps for the stump lounge were provided by Mike’s step-dad who owns a mill in Valemount, BC.

Dessert Table: I LOVE cookies. 98% of the cookies I baked and froze beforehand. I had a few donuts made from my favorite Ladner bakery, Delta Bakery. Also, one of my bridesmaids, Tara, made those darling “Love is Sweet” sugar cookie. Since there were over 220 folks attending, I wanted everyone to be able to find interesting areas to socialize – pond lounge, stump lounge, bar hightop table lounge, dining room table, photobooth, gazebo bar etc. I tried to scope out which areas had the most shade before the wedding, so I could place the lounging areas appropriately…

It took 6 days to put together all the pieces on site, 1 year to collect and make odds and ends, 12 truckloads to drop everything off, and 2.5 hours to take everything down. wow. Although this wedding was a LOT of work, it was worth every second. We’re still hearing how much people enjoyed all the details of our wedding. The personal touches really do leave a lasting impression.

Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can.
