    If Carlsberg did wedding stationary.....

    I ordered my wedding invitations and Thank-you cards from Rachael. From the very first enquiry through to receiving my beautifully packaged invitations and thank you’s Rachael was outstanding! The experience of organising a wedding during Covid and having months of uncertainty and 4 postponements Rachael was exceptionally supportive and patient with all my last minute changes, and ensured I at least knew my invites were in safe hands.
    The stationary was absolutely beautiful and I was delighted with it. The invites were also much commented on by my guests and venue, one guest wrote on her RSVP.....”I love love love your invitations....super classy!”
    As the company had not used my venue before they had it drawn for me, and I was so touched Rachael arranged for the original drawing to be delivered to me on Christmas Eve as a surprise. As I had just postponed the wedding again it was a really special moment opening the package and seeing my venue so beautifully drawn.
    I simply cannot recommend The Illustrated Invitation highly enough!

    Incredible

    Rachael and Jamie have been incredible, it has been so lovely to work with a family business to design our wedding stationary. The design process was easy, even though we had a tight turnaround and a few last minute changes!
    If you want excellent customer service, quality products & a stress free experience, go with this company!
