My name is Katy and this is me and my gorgeous little family - I'm the blonde; no not the dog!
I have been a graphic designer (admittedly totally self-taught) for the past 12 years for our family-run business and following doing all of our own wedding stationery and signage back in 2019, I was totally hooked on the wedding industry and had my sights set on doing this as more than just a hobby.
In 2020, when the pandemic hit, I grasped the opportunity when we were suddenly blessed with quite a lot of free time, to set up Dove and Lace and well... it's been one of the best things I've ever done.
We also welcomed our first human baby (we already have a fur-baby Reggie the golden retriever) into the world in 2021. So, I'm grateful to spend my days balancing motherhood and my love for all things weddings and paper!
I bring with me 12 years of experience in printing techniques, graphic design and just a general love of getting to know people. I like to think I'm approachable, so please do get in touch.
I absolutely love working with every single one of my clients to deliver their beautiful and unique wedding stationery to help celebrate their day.
Dove and Lace
When I first set up Dove and Lace, I knew I wanted the style to be wild, unique and distinctive. Over the past 18 months, it has evolved into what I like to call rustic lux, combining contemporary elegance with boho chic!
I work closely with my clients to bring out their most daring side when it comes to their wedding stationery, whilst still keeping it classy and beautiful.
I draw on quite a bit of inspiration from nature, with lots of flowers and dried grasses mixed with luxury touches like wax seals and foiling.
In 2018, I started learning calligraphy and now include this as part of my offering.
It is so important for me to get to know my clients, learn your love story and create something truly special for you!
