I’m Laura, a calligrapher, photographer and all round creative type based in sunny Scotland near Glasgow.
My love of handwriting and calligraphy-style writing started because of good old Winnie the Pooh. For my first birthday, despite an inability to read, my aunt Elizabeth ( hence my middle name) gave my mum a copy of the book by A.A Milne with a note at the front which said, "well at least she can look at the pictures!) - followed by my name and birthday. This was penned in her own unique and flowing handwriting, and as the years went on I've cherished this book, and many more hand notes I received from her, which are even more precious now since she died. With a trusty Osmiroid calligraphy kit I began to experiment and remember my hast attempts at traditional calligraphy.
Fast forward a few years, and after graduating with a degree in Fashion Business and after some unrelated career moves, I picked up the pen (and ink) again, and became hooked on Calligraphy and Typography, but this time taking a more modern approach using the pointed pen.
I take a fine art approach to wedding stationery and like to create elegant designs blending my own organic calligraphy with classic simple type design with quirky vintage touches and some illustration.
I get inspiration from everywhere but I love old vintage illustrations, celestrial musings and of course gorgeous organic wildflower arrangements.
Services I offer include complete wedding invite design, envelope addressing, table plans, escort cards, menus and seating plans for weddings and events. I also offer a bespoke branding and logo service and am working on a range of prints. Prices start at £2.50 per envelope and I’m happy to provide a quote for custom design.
When I’m not surrounded by paper, or covered in ink, I’m usually taking pictures. I love beautiful natural imagery and love nothing more than finding new and inspiring things to photograph. I take on a number of photography projects including food and product styling, location shots, weddings and family/ baby photo sessions.
