Bespoke Verse

Bespoke Verse

Welcome to Bespoke Verse,'s PARTNER OF THE YEAR 2015.


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

Our aim is to create stylish, clever and memorable gifts and to help our customers find just the right words for those important occasions.

We work with talented British artists and designers to create homewares, 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 fact, 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 small team of professional writers and have been described as 'gifts of lifetime'. Poems are based on background information in response to our tried and trusted questionnaires.


Bespoke Verse is a family business based in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. It is run by mum of 3, Joanna Miller, and began when she made a cheeky rhyming wedding speech about her husband. Joanna is supported by a team of 5 fabulous mums who help her in her garden studio within school hours, and 4 talented poets - also working mums - who take on bespoke commissions.

Joanna was awarded the title of '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.

The business has featured on BBC Radio, and in lots of 'glossies' including VOGUE, 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, and we love poems (short or long) so please do get in touch if you have any ideas, questions or special requests. We will help if we can!
