Calligraphy, Heraldry & Illumination

It’s the small details of your event that really make a difference, and calligraphy is one of the best ways to add a unique and personal element to your day. Whether it’s a wedding, christening or a corporate dinner, there’s nothing like a handwritten note to make you and your guests feel extra special.

There are a number of ways to incorporate beautiful flourishes in your event, from place-cards to menus, thank-you cards to invitations and drinks signs to wall murals. If you have something in mind, you can find some basic pricing information below, however please note that these prices might change depending on the size of the project. Have a look at the examples and get in touch if you have any questions!

Modern Calligraphy

Elegant, handwritten calligraphy with distinctive thick downstrokes and thin upstrokes.

Pointed Pen Uncial Calligraphy

Traditional and historical calligraphy. Using a pointed nib gives this script a classic, round, broad and open characteristic. Perfect for traditional, rustic or even christmassy events.

Art Deco Calligraphy

Streamlined, geometric calligraphy common with the design for the 1930s. This script uses straight lines and sharp angles rather than the cursive, scroll style of art nouveau.

Brush Calligraphy

A uniform calligraphy style where each letter has heavy pressure applied to the downward stroke and light pressure on each upward stroke.

Heraldry

Devising and blazoning armorial insignia with a deep rooted history in genealogy.

Illumination

Started for use on manuscripts during the middle ages, bring out (‘illuminate’) the first letter of the page with beautifully decorated illustration, embellished with gold or silver leaf to reflect light off the page.

Let’s talk about how I can make your event extra special

I first admired Michela’s artistry when she produced a stunning set of wedding stationery for a photoshoot at Chateau de Courtomer. We subsequently commissioned her to design our 2020 New Years card. I have been in event management and hospitality for more than three decades and found that Michela’s artistic skills were matched by her professionalism, eye for detail and communication skills. I would recommend her without hesitation.
