Tell us a bit more about Amanda Michelle Design & Stationery…
I design elegant, modern and beautiful stationery for any occasion. I have an extensive house collection that can be tailored to you and your colour theme. These design ranges cover all aspects of your wedding from saying ‘yes!’ right the way to thanking your guests after the big day. For those on a budget I have DIY luxury stationery kits – they give the luxury feel for less than half the price! And for those looking for something completely unique I offer a design from scratch, service.
What inspired you to start your business?
I qualified from university with a first class degree in graphic design but no desire to work in a design studio. I didn’t want to be passed any old project that I wasn’t truly passionate about. I took a bit of time out to find my own niche and now I have I’m definitely passionate about it! I absolutely love what I do, I’m at my happiest at my computer playing around with new designs.
How are you different from any other similar suppliers?
My background in graphic design, this is what I studied and am qualified in so when it comes down to knowing exactly how much space should be between each individual letter and just how many millimetres that watercolour flower should be from the edge of the invite – I know! These little details make such a difference in the quality of design and is something I think is so important. I’m also open to anything – got a completely crazy and out there theme? No problem, I’d love to work on it! Recent projects include a Harry Potter themed wedding and a theme designed entirely around the couple’s dog and love of gin!
What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?
Weddings are one of the most important days of peoples lives, how lucky am I that I get to be a small part of so many! That and everyone who I meet also working in the wedding industry is so lovely!!
What would be your number one piece of advice for a bride to be?
Don’t panic! At the end of the day your wedding is about you, your partner and your love for each other. If you feel stressed, then take a step back remember why you’re doing this, take a break and re-evaluate.
