Amazing Amy Atlas


I'm glad I was guided to this website. Amy Atlas Events. This lady is wonderful. Her brilliant design ideas and attention to details are just wonderful. Wonderful. This is what I want at the wedding. For more sweet-toothed delights have a look at her blog.

THE World's Best Photographer Yet.


To be fair Todd Pellowe has taken pictures of the most beautiful people at the most beautiful time in their lives and yet, the moments he captures are moving. They make me laugh and cry and wish he was a little closer to Scotland in October next year... Enjoy.

Wedding Stationary



Thinking of saving the money and doing all of the Wedding Stationary myself. While I was browsing for inspiration I came across this talented lady, Marina Chaccur and her work. Above is one of my favourite pieces. Visit her site and see the steps she's taken to get here.

DIY Wedding Stationary

Planning a wedding for a reunion of two nationalities, with relatives coming in from various locations, is always a little more complicated than if everyone lived in the same village so it's best to let everyone know well in advance what's happening and where. My time frame goes like this:

Save the Date cards & homemade gift: 1 year in advance
Wedding Invitation: 6 months in advance
Location Information Packet - including accomodation, sight seeing & a little bit of history with basic event timetable: 3 months in advance or upon receipt of RSVP
Invitations to Rehearsal Dinner/Night: 6 weeks beforehand
Event Timetable & Directions: 2 weeks beforehand

paper, card, inks, embossing powder, stamps, bulk or small amounts of 10, paper creasers - cellophane bags for making favours - paper punches, paper trimmers, scissors

Some great online sources:
Liz's Crafts
Paper Crafter
order sample swatches to match the exact hue you're looking for.

But when it come to paper, I want to have felt it so here are some places in Edinburgh
Paperchase on George St.
Daintree Paper on Morningside Rd and their blog which has handy guides and templates

Ready made cards are:
  • quick & less time consuming- no designing, cutting, glueing and messing up!
  • cheaper than printed invitations
  • unique if you buy from small gift shops with start up designers who only print in small batches
  • ideal if you have a small wedding planned as each card will have to be written by hand! You could save yourself some time and print out smaller insert papers with your wording and personalise it with your handwritten signatures or small note
Ready Made Card Shops in Edinburgh:
The Bay Tree Co on Hanover St.
