I’m very excited today as I have launched 2 new stationery ranges on the website! They are both part of the Brights Collection and I just love how fun and bright and floral they are! The first of the ranges is the Spring Garden range. Bright floral wedding invitations which were inspired by a photo shoot at my very own wedding venue Coombe Trenchard! http://www.coombetrenchard.co.uk/
Last spring the gorgeous ladies at Blue Fizz Events http://www.bluefizzevents.co.uk/ commissioned me to produce some stationery for a style shoot at Coombe Trenchard. The theme was spring garden inspired by the gorgeous gardens at Coombe Trenchard and I really went for it with a bright floral wedding theme with a hint of the rustic in some dark brown string. I thought using the dark string rather than the usual coloured twine really echoed Coombe Trenchards wood and panelling and the history of the house. We had an amazing day on the shoot and I loved the stationery so much I was excited to turn it into a permanent range on the website.
I took samples of the range to the Westpoint wedding show in October and it proved so popular that I knew it was something I had to launch … and so here it is! You can find the Spring Garden range in the Brights section http://knotsandkisses-co-uk.stackstaging.com/beta/shop/all-collections-spring-garden/personalised-invitations-stationery-spring-garden-3/ .
With this range I really wanted to concentrate on bursts of colour and also create a leaf pattern which could be used across the range. So as well as the bright pink flowers and monogram the back of cards and the envelope liners have the leaf pattern on in a bright burst of green. Against the crisp white card and dark brown twine I think it looks really cheerful and bold.
As with all of my ranges you can order a full range of invitations, Save the Dates, Order of Service and matching reception stationery. Order directly from the website or contact me if you want to discuss any bespoke changes you might want to make first.
I can’t wait to hear from some of you and receive order’s for this range … it brightens up the studio and definitely makes a dull day more cheery!
I’ve also launched another range today Watercolour Florals and I’ll be sharing details of this very soon!

Two of my favourite things in life are Colour and Travel so when a couple of years ago I was thinking about how to combine these two loves into a range of wedding stationery I came up with my Tropical Travel wedding invitations. You can find these invitations in my ‘Brights Collection’ which is where I put all the stationery for those like me who want a shot of colour in their wedding! http://knotsandkisses-co-uk.stackstaging.com/beta/product-category/brights-collection/tropical-travel/
For these invitations I wanted to convey the exotic beaches and areas I had visited in Australia and South East Asia, the brightly coloured tropical flowers against the bright blue ocean and sky. I also wanted to convey my love of travel with colourful map prints and a fun luggage tag motif … this range was all about creating wedding invitations for not only those who were getting married abroad but were, like me, also a little bit travel obsessed – perhaps had met on a tropical island and were celebrating this in their wedding at home.
The Tropical Travel wedding invitations seemed to suit a more fun format so I used a square design with a little pocket inside for an information and rsvp card. I also created some map print envelope liners to echo the map print inside the invitations. On more than one occasion I have been asked by clients for a bespoke map to be used which shows where they are getting married or where they met and obviously I’m more than happy to add these little extra details in to make the stationery perfect for them.
As always with my stationery ranges Tropical Travel comes with a full range of matching reception stationery including placecards, table numbers and any number of other things that you can think of. I love to design extra bits and pieces for clients weddings that are personal to them – whether that be tags for their favours or signage for around the room.
I hope this pop of colour has brightened up your day a little and if you would like to order Tropical Travel for your wedding please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
As I mentioned last week as part of the website relaunch my new and existing ranges were re-photographed by the amazing Clare Kinchin Photography and I wanted to start sharing with you some of the photographs which were taken of the ‘older’ ranges on the website and how this breathed life back into these ranges and made me realise why I loved them in the first place!
So I’m taking some time on the blog to share the new photographs of an older range and along side that create a brand new moodboard with you – giving you an up to date look on how that range of stationery can be styled with your wedding.
Today I’m looking at my Rosie & Stitch range which you can order from the website at http://knotsandkisses-co-uk.stackstaging.com/beta/product-category/brights-collection/rosie-stitch/
Rosie & Stitch is all about having a fun bright floral wedding and embracing colour! I also was inspired by embroidery and samplers and retro floral fabrics and basically threw all my favourite colours at the design!
To match the range I have created a new moodboard. This is all about really bright fun and floral weddings – lots of colour and polka dot prints with some embroidered florals on napkins.
I am excited as today sees the launch of my Autumn Collections and several new updates to my website http://knotsandkisses.co.uk .
I’ve been looking forward to sharing these new ranges with you all for several months now, as I’m chuffed to bits with the new designs and really think they take Knots & Kisses forward into 2015!
Along with four new ranges of wedding stationery the website has had a little bit a revamp … the stationery collections have now been categorised into the Pastels Collection, the Vintage Collection, the Classic Collection and the Brights Collection … fantastic if you already have a feel or colour combination in mind for your wedding and go straight to the section which you feel would suit you best. Or you can view all of the ranges in one go if you are looking for inspiration!
There is also a brand new section for Digital Invitations which can now be bought directly from the website. Digital Invitations are a great option if you would prefer to print your invitations yourself,
save money by printing on to a slightly lower quality card, or would rather get rid of the
paper all together and go green by sending your wedding invitations by email!
Once you have ordered you will be contacted for the wording you wish to have on your personalised stationery design. Proofs will then be sent via email for you to check over before a final digital file is sent to you in JPEG and PDF format for you to use.
I’ll be sharing all of the new ranges in detail, with matching styling ideas and moodboards, over the course of this week .. but to give you a little taster here are images of the 4 new ranges … Tuscany, Vintage Cameo, Victorian Garden and Vintage Christmas.
Check back over the next few days for lots more images!
