Handmade details are the perfect way to add the ultimate personal touch to your wedding - so why not turn your hand to pretty calligraphy?
Fact: calligraphy lends itself perfectly to weddings.
No longer just the remit of fountain pen-twirling experts, the hand-lettering art form is now having a serious moment, offering a classic-yet-modern, sophisticated-yet-warm finish to just about anything.
If you fancy adding an element of DIY to your wedding day, calligraphy is a must-consider option. All you need to kick-start your new hobby (and trust us - you'll be gripped!) is paper and a nice ink pen.
If you're feeling ambitious, consider hand-lettering your wedding save-the-dates and invitations. For those who want to dip their toe in a slightly less ambitious way, table names or dessert bar labels both make great options.
