One of the many pretty damn awesome things about running my blog is the amazing wedding vendors I’ve met along the way. People I wish I’d known about when planning my own wedding back in 2007/08. Luckily for you though I’m here – still as wedding obsessed as ever to share my finds with you and I think you’re going to go nuts for Lucy Ledger and her wonderful retro and kitsch stationary designs. I was lucky enough to be able to interview Lucy this week. It went a little something like this…
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Lucy Ledger and I own Lucy Ledger Designs Stationery Company. I design vintage inspired stationery for couples who are looking for something fun, quirky, unique and personal for their wedding day!
Where are you based and where in the world can you send your work?
I am based in Sheffield but I can send work anywhere in the world.
Can you tell me a little about the process of your custom design service?
I LOVE working with brides and grooms to create complete bespoke designs- the quirkier the better! To start the process off I would ask the couple to send over images that they have collected that inspire them, and then I would either communicate via email or arrange a face to face consultation depending on the couples wishes.
My Prices are upfront and I charge a one off fee of £50 for a complete bespoke design. The prices are then the same as the off the peg ranges.
I’ve got a bonus post for you today, simply because I couldn’t help myself and wanted to blog this right away! Amanda and Walé got married in Cornwall, Polhawn Fort to be specific which overlooks a dramatic bay. Amanda wore a completely gorgeous bright blue Roland Mouret dress with pewter Jimmy Choo wedges (swoon.) The bouquet was a structural arrangement of Calla lilies and she clipped some pretty little butterflies from Urban Outfitters in her hair. Her ring was the ‘crystal haze’ ring by Stephen Webster and Wale’s ring was from Sarah Sheridan.
This could quite possibly be the most emotionally charged ceremony I’ve ever seen! So. Much. Love. The intimate wedding (only 15 guests) took place at The Kings Road Registry Office and was followed by some good old fashioned English fish n’ chips. Quite apart from all this awesome, the couple, Fox & Cassie, are actually very cool themselves. Fox has made a record, written a book and played at Glastonbury and he was desperate to get married at the same venue as his hero Mick Jagger.
When I featured Nadia & Damien’s London engagement session back in January I just knew their wedding would be a beaut’ and these images sent over by the lovely Eliza Claire certainly haven’t disappointed.
The pair got married at The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells which proved a pictureqesue venue with dramatic ‘high rocks’ outside. These acted as the perfect backdrop for some stunning portraits. Nadia looked every bit the glamorous bride in her Stephanie Allin dress which not only has a belt and lace over-lay but had pockets. Yes! stylish and quirky!
I’ve been invited to the Luella’s Boudoir bridal event this evening (as a VIP – ha? moi? hilarious!) so what better way to stat the day then will a Rock n Roll boudoir sesh…plus combine that with Annie’s awesome Wild Fox ‘my boyfriend’s a vampire’ tee (which, I might add, I’ve lusted over for a while!) and you’ve got a match made in Rock n Roll heaven!
I’m so lucky that I get to feature some of the craziest, most alternative and tattoo-gorgeous weddings out there. It’s one of the biggest pleasures of my job! However, occasionally a wedding that may not be the most ‘Rock n Roll’ will hit me between the eyes and give me just as much joy. Tanya & Christan’s Boat Club ‘Love Boat’ wedding at Molesey Boat Club on the Thames has such a simple, love-filled emotion that I couldn’t help but feature.
