Brahmin Lettering Co
For modern, beautifully lettered wedding stationary you can't go wrong with the lovely Caitlin from Brahmin Lettering Co. Her gorgeous hand-written calligraphy makes each piece unique and she's a joy to work with to boot.
We wanted to hear a little more from this Scottish wedding supplier so we caught up with her quickly to hear what she had to say about her company.
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as organic, romantic, free-spirited and fun. I am a modern calligrapher, and unlike traditional forms of calligraphy, modern calligraphy is all about each artist developing their own unique style. So it's honest to say that my calligraphy style is uniquely my own!
What makes you different?
At the moment all of the work I do for weddings and other clients is bespoke. That means I work with each one of my customers to create a suite of stationery or a piece that is just for them. It may take a bit longer than buying something off the shelf, but it means that each piece is completely unique. I also work in a couple of calligraphy styles - pointed pen and brush - to give customers the option of a delicate or more rustic look, and dabble in watercolour to add special floral touches.
What do you love most about what you do?
I truly believe that the lost art of beautiful handwriting makes people happy. I have yet to meet a person who doesn't love receiving a beautiful bit of post or seeing handwritten touches at a wedding. I also teach calligraphy workshops and experiencing first hand how people can fall in love with the art is genuinely heartwarming.
What's your favourite part of a wedding?
The stationery of course! Obviously I'm biased, but I love to see as many handmade and handwritten elements as possible on the wedding day as they make the wedding feel really personal. I also think things like beautiful calligraphy addressing on invitation envelopes is a way to capture your guests attention from the very start. I also adore flowers - you can never have too many at the wedding (or just every day) in my opinion.
Where do your prices start?
My prices start from as little as £1.00 per handwritten place setting.
