Emmy Designs was started by myself (Emma) when my sister got married a few years ago.
As maid of honour, it was my job to help take some of the pressure off and help her to plan the big day. I was in my element! One of the last things to arrange was the wedding stationery, which we found really difficult! Nothing was quite her and just didn’t fit the style of the day. Everywhere we looked was saw the same old traditional invitations wrapped in frills and ribbon! Having qualifications in graphic design and an eye for anything wedding, I decided to have a go myself. We had an idea of what we wanted which was a vintage ticket to match her wedding colours and 1930s theme. I even invested in a vintage letterpress machine! Everybody loved the invites, and we had so much positive feedback from them!
A few years down the line, my stationery has become so popular I decided that this was what I wanted to do full time. My style has definitely changed since starting out and I’ve found my niche which is the hand drawn designs. I think I’d describe my style as a modern take on a vintage feel but then I think my style changes just the same as do wedding trends.
