Introducing… Elle is for Love

18 Jul

Please let me introduce to you the lovely Elle is for Love, a bespoke wedding stationer with an eye for everything pretty and vintage inspired. Elle offers a personal design service for your wedding stationery in order to create that unique look or alternatively you can buy ‘off the peg.’ Elle’s self confessed mission is to ‘provide you with a design as unique as you are’ and judging by her delightful designs this is exactly what she does…

How did Elle Is For Love begin?

Having just celebrated my first anniversary, I have first hand experience of going through the planning process and trying to source suppliers that fit my critique perfectly.

This is where I found the problem – for me, nothing fitted the bill for my wedding stationery, so I decided to make my own.

I enjoyed making it so much and received so many compliments about it that I was soon taking orders for clients who wanted something made for them which they couldn’t find elsewhere. I have always enjoyed crafts and previously worked in Marketing using graphics suites, so merging the two skills into handmade wedding stationery came very naturally to me.

 What can we expect from Elle Is For Love?

I specialise in bespoke designs, where you can have something created especially for you and carried through to your reception stationery to perfectly co-ordinate with the theme. I don’t charge for the bespoke design, offering this as a complimentary service.

I also design a full range of accessories which include pretty hanging bunting-style signs, luggage tags for favours/place cards, sweetie bar labels/tags, guest books, favour boxes and keepsake boxes…the list is endless and continues to grow as new ideas emerge.

In addition to the wedding stationery range, I also create logos for businesses, artwork for business cards, flyers and website/blog headers. These have been a huge hit and I really enjoy creating brands for wedding related companies.

 

Where does your inspiration from?

I’m usually guided by my clients who will give me a brief based on ideas they have and what they want to achieve. Sometimes it’s an open playing field, (which I absolutely love doing!) and I’m asked to style the stationery in any way they think I feel fit them as a couple.

Inspiration for my new range of designs comes from a love of by-gone eras. I absolutely adore vintage items like my antique typewriter and my Art Deco china, so this is reflected in my work.

 What is the best thing about your job?

I feel so lucky to be a part of the wedding industry and to be in a job I love so much! I work in my studio from home and get to spend my days creating beautiful things for lovely people – it is an absolute joy!

Something I didn’t expect, which has really thrilled me, is that I have become good friends with so many of my previous brides. It’s a privilege to be part of the planning process and being involved so closely creates a bond with your clients, so it’s always lovely to hear about their honeymoons and new born babies long after the wedding.

I’d like to say a big thank you to Elle for her contibution to my blog. I hope you love her work as much as I do, I absolutely adore the diamante bow invitation and the colourful passports. So different! Elle certainly is achieveing that mission statement! 🙂
