Winter berries, armfuls of foliage and a little sparkle... Today we share Christmas wedding inspiration at the beautiful Devonshire house, Dartington Hall. Based on the edge of Totnes, this atmospheric venue was the perfect setting for a winter wedding styled shoot.

Christmas always feels like such a beautiful time of the year but it can be one of the trickiest to style tastefully. This stationery is one of our newest designs, featuring hand drawn lettering and subtle floral and berry illustrations it's a great choice for couples planning Yuletide nuptials.

If you've never tried them S'mores should be the next on your list of American traditions to taste, think marshmallows toasted over an open fire and smushed in between biscuit with a layer (or two) of chocolate - Erm, yes please! Proper Job Parties hire out their portable S'mores bar for the ultimate winter sweet treat at weddings and events.

Laura was the first Bride-to-be to take part in our creative workshop, we are super excited to be running Handmade Hen Party sessions at MAKE in sunny Plymouth! In this half a day workshop Abi will teach you simple (but no less awesome) techniques for creating quirky portraits using drawing, collage and hand lettering. If you are looking for a fun way to celebrate with your girls (or guys!) then read on...

So here's what you'll get up to - Hens will join together to make the pages of an illustrated portrait book for the bride, each page becoming a handmade likeness of everyone at the celebration. After the party Abi will use copies of your illustrations to make a handcrafted book and send it to the Bride-to-be as a keepsake of the day!
