A Church Portrait for a Christening

I was commissioned last year to create this painted church portrait for a christening gift.  The church is in a small village in rural Somerset.  I thought it was such a sweet idea – if you would like to commission your own please get in touch.

A Few Snaps of My Antipodean Trip


Lucky me, I temporarily escaped winter and spent the first few weeks of January visiting family and friends in New Zealand.  We had a wonderful time, oh yes. We spent the majority of our time in Wanaka as my brother has recently moved there, along with visits to Raglan, Rotorua, Auckland and a much anticipated first visit to the breathtaking Milford Sound.  We did lots of walking, coffee drinking and wine tasting, which is pretty much my perfect kind of holiday!  The long flight is grim but so, so worth it.  I am back at work and pleased to come back to lots of wedding enquiries – excited for the year ahead!



Amberley Castle Wedding Stationery


Oops, i’m not entirely sure where the last few months went!  I’ve still got a few more 2015 wedding designs to share, including this one for Sarah and Dan who were married at Amberley Castle in July 2015.

I created a Save the Date and Invitation featuring an illustration of the castle, an Information Card with a simple map and, as the couple live in the US, a small card for a marriage celebration aboard the steamboat The Anastasia.
