Bespoke Verse

Bespoke Verse

Welcome to Bespoke Verse, ambassador and PARTNER OF THE YEAR 2015.


We create unique rhyming gifts. Every verse we use is original, and as professional poets, we certainly know our rhyming couplets!

Our aim is to help our customers find just the right words for those important occasions.

We work with talented British designers to create homeware, stationery and prints, many of which can be personalised with messages.

We insist on top quality materials, including hand-finished frames made to our specifications. In buying from us you are supporting at least 8 other small UK businesses!

Part of our range includes witty bespoke poems created from scratch by a team of professional writers. These have been described as 'gifts of lifetime'.


Bespoke Verse is located in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. It is run by mum of 3, Joanna Miller, and began with a cheeky rhyming wedding speech. Joanna is supported by 5 studio assistants and 4 talented poets who take on bespoke commissions.

Joanna was awarded the title of 'Partner of The Year 2015' by NOTHS, and 'Most Inspirational Mumpreneur 2015' by Mumpreneur UK. She also won 'Best Wedding Writer' at The Wedding Industry Experts Awards 2013, 2014 & 2015. Bespoke Verse also won 'Most Promising New Business' at the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce Awards 2015.

In 2016, Joanna won a poetry competition run by Bloomsbury Publishing to have her poem 'What is Reading?' illustrated and sent to every school in the UK.

The business has featured on BBC Radio, Channel 4's Gogglebox and in lots of 'glossies' including VOGUE, Prima, Woman & Home, Easy Living, and OK! Magazine. We have many returning and celebrity customers.

As notonthehighstreet's 'Less Ordinary Poets', we enjoyed tweeting over 50 bespoke poems for Valentine's Day 2015.

We love what we do, so please get in touch if you have any special requests. We will help if we can!
