"Being even just a little part of a couple's big day is so special and fulfilling."
Hi there! Thank you for stopping by my website. If you have any questions at all,
please get in touch. I can't wait to hear from you.
Getting to know me
My background is in the corporate world; for the last 8 years, I've worked in graphic design and marketing for our family run business, after graduating with a degree in Journalism (totally unrelated!)
So with that in my armour, when it came to our own wedding in July 2019, I just had to be involved in the making of all our stationery, signage and styling.
It was so special to create such personal elements on our big day and receive such lovely compliments from our friends and family.
Out of all this, Dove & Lace was born. I couldn't hang up my brush pens and walk away, so decided to set up a little business of my own.
For the last 4 months, I've been learning handlettering and modern calligraphy, and now I'm so pleased to offer this as part of my service.
"Let your imagination run wild"
I love to take inspiration from nature, my surroundings and of course the seasons. For me, there's nothing more beautiful than when the leaves start to turn all shades of gold in Autumn.
We're blessed to work on a beautiful estate in Farnsfield, where they have peacocks roaming around. The colours are immense and probably my favourite colour theme of the year!
I'm also obsessed with stalking Pinterest for the latest interior trends. I must have painted my living room wall at least 10 times in the past 5 years because I fall in love with a new theme! (Much to my husbands dismay!)
But there's no better inspiration than my clients themselves. It's so exciting when they come to me with their colour themes (especially something I've not tried before), cute little quotes for their signage and elements they wish to personalise. It's just a fabulous industry to work in.
