Dorset based Anissa Lee prides herself on her unique approach to wedding stationery. “I specialise in hand cut paper using a scalpel as the drawing tool cutting freehand straight onto a blank piece of paper,” she explains. “Using the method of hand cutting makes each piece unique. The paper used is a synthetic paper called Polyart, which is waterproof and makes it suitable to be used outside.”

However Anissa’s work goes far beyond just wedding stationery. She has been commissioned to make displays for weddings and events including 3d dresses, props, accessories and decorations. She can also take her hand cut designs and laser cut them as confetti or acrylic jewellery for wedding gifts or favours.

“I am happy to do any theme,” she continues. “the crazier the better! I can vary from accessories, table/chair/room decorations, bouquets & flowers, props for photo shoots, window displays for bridal boutiques, designs for invites, gifts and even a paper dress for the more daring bride! My recent collection ‘Paper Wonderland’ of hand cut paper dresses and props shows a variety of possible products including bows, roses, hearts, headbands, hats/crowns, bunting and cups.”

    These are just amazing; its almost impossible to believe that they are hand cut. Anissa Lee is certainly a very talented artist!

    These are amazing. That first picture is incredibly stark and impressive, the location really sets off the dress and the framing is immaculate. That second image is very dreamlike, beautifully shot. My compliments to everyone involved, photographer through designer. I hope to have a wedding as crisp and sweet as this.
