Catching Up With Paper Magpie Stationery
Those of you who read the blog regularly or visit the Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale may recognise the work of Sera from Paper Magpie. We introduced her here and she's since gone on to be our right-hand-woman, designing our stationery and website. We recently caught up with Sera to see what 2014 has in store... don't miss her stall this coming Sunday 16th Feb at Cams Hall!
Also, if you're interested in seeing what our brides will be bringing along on Sunday, don't miss a few sneak previews on our Facebook page!
What's new for Paper Magpie in 2014?
This year I have re-branded and I am changing my outlook entirely! I want to stay true to the design style I love and I know that everyone will love these designs too - I hope to be debuting these at HBBS!
Is there a regular source of inspiration you turn to/what's inspiring you for 2014?
Adventures! I love to travel and I have a *slight* obsession with travel books - I turn through the pages and I see colours and trips and experiences I just can't wait to get onto paper!
What's your favourite thing to design?
Bespoke weddings! If a couple come at me with a long list of weird and wonderful personal touches they want to immortalise in their stationery I love it! Dogs, cats, kids, props, places, colours, flowers, cars, I've done it all!
If you could give a bride-to-be one piece of advice for planning their wedding, what would it be?
Do it your way - don't feel tied to traditions! Make your own traditions or just throw it out the window - you don't need chair covers and a garter - do what you like! My husband decided that we didn't want to commit to one wedding ring so we get a new one every year or so because thats what we wanted!
Could you recommend another supplier you love for our readers and why?
I love Mia Photography, she's not only a good friend but also such a talent! She has a knack of making couples relax and seeing the picture before she snaps - its something I admire and am sneakily jealous of all at once!
