Amy & Colm’s 1920’s Inspired Mayo Wedding

I was thrilled to work with Amy and Colm designing their customised Floral Art Nouveau wedding stationery. When I first met Amy and she described her vision for their wedding day, I knew it was going to beautiful. Now I am delighted to share Amy and Colm’s wedding with you.  From the vintage decor to the fresh flowers, Amy’s stunning lace headpiece to the delicious recipee for love every little detail is perfection…


Colm’s parents are both from Connemara and we were both educated through Irish in North Dublin (where we met) so a large proportion of our ceremony was through Irish. We also included some little personal touches as Gaeilge on our confetti bags and invitations.”

“After lots of driving around the west of Ireland we arrived at Lisloughrey Lodge. The views were absolutely stunning over Lough Corrib but more importantly the atmosphere in the hotel was just so relaxed and beautiful. The lodge and accommodation were absolutely stunning and really suited our own individual style, I was instantly in love with it! Food was also really important to us and Lisloughrey was renowned for delicious food.”

“We wanted our day to be relaxed, fun and really enjoyable for our family and friends. Our wedding style was very feminine and romantic with hints of inspiration from the 1920’s to create an elegant vintage feel. The colours, textures, flowers and vintage props really helped to create our wedding experience.”

“I just wanted to take the time to thank you so much for our beautiful wedding invitations and stationary. I knew from the second that we met you at the Wedding & Honeymoon Show that we really wanted you to create our wedding stationary! Your letterpress designs were so unique, personal and of such beautiful quality that I knew we had to have you.

The stationary was one of the first things that we booked and created and set the tone for the rest of our wedding inspiration. I loved the fact that you had previously created bilingual stationary and how creative you were when it came to the designs and brining our ideas to life. We also loved all of the little added extras that you also had to offer like the gorgeous confetti bags, place names, seating and thank you cards.

What you delivered for us was beyond our expectations and our friends and family still comment on how unusual and beautiful our wedding invitation booklet and the entire stationary suite was. I will definitely be recommending you to all of my newly engaged friends!!”

I recently had the pleasure of designing and printing Ashling and Francis’ letterpress wedding stationery. Ashling and Francis are based in the UK but were married in The Village at Lyons in Ireland. After seeing some samples of our invitation booklets they decided it was the perfect option for them, giving their guest all the information they needed to attend their wedding day…


“I live in the UK and originally thought I’d source stationary here, but after many hours of research I could not find any letterpress designs I was happy with. Once I started looking further afield I came across Farrell and Chase’s website, and met Pamela at the RDS wedding fair where she showed me some of her beautiful designs. We ordered invitation booklets, RSVP cards and -more recently- thank you cards. Pamela was extremely helpful and professional, and everything we received was absolutely beautiful; the quality and finish was superb. So many of our guests commented on the stationary and we felt it set the perfect tone for our day.”


We can customise any of our wedding stationery designs and we also offer a bespoke design service. Working closely with you, we will customise your chosen stationery design or design a tailor made stationery suite to reflect you and your wedding style, helping you to make the perfect first impression for your wedding day.

I was delighted to design and print Donna and Tim’s letterpress wedding stationery. Donna and Tim had a very specific idea about what style they liked and after discussing all the options and various ideas we designed a bespoke wedding suite featuring lovebirds perched on an oak tree…donna-tim_001

Donna and tim loved the effect of blind printing, printing without ink, which gives a beautifully subtle deboss in the cotton card so we blind deboseed the tree and lovebirds motif throughout. The invitation was designed as a booklet to include all the information about their wedding; accommodation, directions, travel, hair and beauty contacts etc. giving their guests all the information they could want or need.


“Pamela’s work is excellent, from the quality of the materials she uses to her designs, we’ve been delighted with what she produced for us. She listened to what we wanted and created an invitation that was just beautiful. She was a pleasure to work with and I’ve recommended her services to all our friends who are getting married.”

Well they’ve been a while coming, the hardest customer to please is yourself, but myself and Alan finally sent out our wedding invitations. I designed the bespoke wedding stationery suite to set the tone for our Rome wedding this summer. Inspired by the romance and elegance of 1900’s to 19020’s style the Art Nouveau design features curved forms flowing from a stylised butterfly…


We chose to send our guests a flat invitation, a wedding booklet and and RSVP card. We wanted to use a muted subtle colour palette to create a romantic vintage feel and printed our stationery with a pewter ink and also blind embossed (printed with no ink). I selected an organic curvaceous striking font for our names which was contrasted with a sans serif minimal font.




I went searching for a stamp that would compliment our stationery suite, the An Post Wedding Stamp or 2010 just didn’t suit at all, so I looked through their website and came across their Stamp Issues section. As soon as I saw the Czeslaw Slania I knew it was perfect. The stamp depicts a scene from the ballet Romeo and Juliet, how fitting, and the colours of the etching were perfect!


We wanted to provide our guests with all the information they would need to book their flights, accommodation and to plan their trip to Rome. We included in the wedding booklet a map of Rome, information about our favourite sights, restaurants, cafes and bars. We wanted to share our love for Rome with our guests giving them a sense of why we chose Rome as our wedding destination.


It really is true once you’ve sent out your wedding invitations, everything does become very real, and very exciting!

We’ve had lots of great feedback from our guests complementing our wedding invitations, I can truly say that they have set the perfect first impression for our стоимость кондиционеров в витебской области wedding
