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!!”

Adele & Ian’s Elegant Tankardstown Wedding

I am delighted to be blogging Adele and Ian’s wonderfully chic wedding at Tankardstown House. I was lucky enough to design their stationery for their wedding day, they had a very specific style in mind so we worked together to create a bespoke design. It’s wonderful now to see how their stationery complimented their wedding style.

Adele and Ian chose Tankardstown House as the venue for their wedding, they were married in a civil ceremony in the Orengerie, and then held their reception in the main house. Tankardstiwn House is just down the road for me so I am very familar with it and it’s stunning grounds, it really is a beautiful wedding venue.

When I first saw the images of their wedding day, I fell in love with Adele’s wedding dress, she looks so elegant, very reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn! Their whole wedding just screams style.

”More than anything we wanted a laid-back day for us and our friends and family to enjoy – we actually made a 3 day event of the wedding with our immediate families staying in Tankardstown the night before & the night after the wedding so it felt a little bit like we were away on holidays. It also meant that the morning of the wedding was stress free. We all had a very relaxing breakfast together,everyone was on site and all the hair/makeup/barbers/flowers – everything came to us so there was no running around. All we had to do was sit back and sip champagne!”

“Pamela, thank you again for our fabulous wedding invitations. You delivered exactly what we wanted! The quality of your design is excellent and so many of our guest complimented us on the invitations. I would highly recommend your work to anyone who wants to create unique and elegant invitations that give their guests a hint of what to expect on the day!”

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.”

I was delighted to design and print Suzanne and Fabien’s bilingual destination wedding stationery earlier this year. Suzanne and Fabien were married in June in Kefalonia, Greece and as Fabien is French and Suzanne is Irish they asked me to create bilingual stationery in their chosen design, Lovebirds



“I love letterpress so it was an absolute joy when Fabien and I spotted the Farrell and Chase stand at the wedding show in the RDS. The designs, the quality of the paper and the colour of the inks used on all of the Farrell and Chase range, in my opinion, just stood out. I was totally obsessed with Pamela’s work and leaving the stand that day I knew I would contact her to arrange getting my invitations produced. As my husband is French and I am Irish we wanted our invitations to be bi-lingual and after meeting with Pamela she showed me a number of ways we could make this possible. I chose the lovebird suite and as I wanted a very specific blue as part of my invitation Pamela was able to mix it perfectly and she recommended some other complementary colours to use alongside it. The process was totally painless and Pamela is a total professional. She even gave us a beautiful pen in the silver we had chosen to write the guests names on, now that was attention to detail. I received numerous compliments on my invitations once I had sent them out and was delighted that it wasn’t only me who loved them. Thank you so much Pamela for my wonderful интернет магазин кондиционеров в могилеве invitations I would highly recommend using Farrell and Chase to anyone. Now that the wedding is over I’ll have to come up with another excuse of an event to get some more!”

Congratulations Suzanne and Fabien!

Last year I had the pleasure of designing and letterpress printing Anri and Anthony’s destination wedding stationery for their 10.10.10 wedding. They chose our Fly Away wedding suite which we customised for their French inspired wedding in South Africa. Anri and Anthony both met and live in London but chose to host their very chic wedding in South Africa where Anri grew up.

The French inspiration came from their love of France, “it’s intoxicating.. Anthony has a beautiful little maison on the river in Limoges where we spent six months in the summer. I got to love the French countryside and its people as much as the bustling city life in Paris and it was easy to draw inspiration from this.” Using this inspiration they wanted to add that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the style of their wedding stationery and throughout their wedding…



I was delighted to design and print save the date cards, invitations, RSVP postcards, menus, seating tags, gift boxes and thank you cards all inspired by vintage luggage tags, guide books and travel stamps.





“We wanted to thank you very much for the exceptional stationery you have produced for our wedding. It has been an absolute delight dealing with you and we are so pleased with the exquisite set which you have designed. It perfectly reflects all that is elegant and you have made for a fantastic experience and a very happy bride and groom! Our sincerest thanks.”
Anri & Anthony


I have to say when Anri sent me the images from their wedding they really took my breath away, she is a stunningly beautiful bride and their wedding is so gorgeous! You can see their full wedding and an interview with Anri featured on Fly Away Bride.

It really was a pleasure to work with Anri and Anthony on their wedding сколько стоит кондиционер в витебской области stationery Thank you for sharing your photographs with us, I wish you only the best for your future together as husband and wife!

“After trawling through lots of stationary websites, Pamela was recommended to us by my sister in law. When we saw the Iceflake Suite we knew that it was exactly what we wanted for our winter wedding and placed our order that day.
It was a pleasure to deal with Pamela and her work is of the highest quality. The invitations were ready early which worked out perfectly for us and we have had lots of compliments on how elegant they are. We would have no hesitation in recommending Pamela and the Farrell & Chase Stationary and we intend to come back to Pamela for our thank you cards when the “big day” has come and gone!”
