1. Wagtail Designs - Oversized Calligraphy
Bespoke wedding stationers Wagtail Designs have seen a huge rise in the popularity of their freestyle font designs.

2. Harty Cards - Woodland Wonder
Celebrating the untouched tranquility of nature and its effortless beauty, this theme hints at a whimsical celebration in the outdoors. Add some holly and it’s festive, or a pumpkin and it’s autumnal; it’s whatever you want it to be, with nature at the heart.
3. Blush & Gold - Tuscan Sun
