Q. We're choosing lots of little touches for our wedding to show our love of nature but we're struggling to find invitations. Where can we find styles that reflect us as a couple?

A. Julia Eastwood says: At our little Yorkshire studio, creating something that's personal to you is at the heart of what we do. All of our collections can be tailored to your tastes. In particular, the Our Story range would be ideal; if a couple has a joint love of nature and cycling, we could create an illustration to represent this! We can incorporate up to seven different aspects reflecting a couples' interests and personalities, as well as the colour scheme, for something truly bespoke. Some nearlyweds even have specific flowers or leaves that they love, which can be woven in to the design.

Q. We're having a barn wedding in March with lots of cosy touches. How can we reflect this in our invitations and on-the-day stationery?

A. Laura Birch says: March is a time of renewal. The trees and flowers are bursting into life providing gorgeous hues of silver-green, lavender, golden yellow and spring pink. This is set against a palette of grey and cream as the cold winter months fade. Your stationery design should reflect this, creating a warm and inviting feeling with a crisp, fresh finish.

A choice of white or natural beige would work well as a backdrop to pretty springtime pastels, interfaced with richly coloured fonts. Adding a hint of foil will give your stationery the cosy warmth needed, beautifully reflecting flickers of subdued lighting. To further enhance the theme, try adding little touches of ribbon, hessian or bunting.
