My name is Ali Greenwood and for more than 20 years I worked in hotels as a Weddings & Events Manager. Weddings were especially important to me as I could see how much time and effort each couple put into the vision for their big day. I always enjoyed helping with some of the little details such as their place cards and their seating plans and this is where I started to build on the wedding stationery business. I found more and more people were asking me, "can you help with our wedding stationery?" and so my business began on a professional basis.
I was thrilled to be a finalist for the South West Wedding Stationery Award in the
The Wedding Industry Awards for 2024 and even more delighted to be a winner in the Hitched Wedding Awards 2024.
Taking a leap of faith.....
I began by booking myself into a couple of Wedding Fairs and going along with my small portfolio of designs to test the water. I was overwhelmed with the amount of interest in what I was doing and the lovely compliments. I now regularly attend Wedding Fairs and love chatting to couples about their ideas and choices.
Everyone knows that wedding stationery is easily available on line, but it generally isn't as customisable as couples want it to be or they simply can't find exactly what they are looking for.
So my portfolio has grown and grown but it will never contain all the ideas I come up with as trends change constantly and I love that because it keeps it fresh.
Not Just Weddings
My business is growing organically and now includes regular clients who require business cards, flyers, banners, magnetic signs, folders, receipt pads, menus and much more.
I can offer small quantities which is always appreciated by new businesses or sole traders who don't want or need hundreds at a time.
One-off projects such as a logo or a social media advert are also projects that I enjoy.
Personalised Name Frames are another part of my creative business. I love designing these as each one is unique and totally personal for the receiver or event.
So you see, I might be able to help you too with a special project if you get in touch!
