I often close my bespoke weddings, partnership ceremonies and vow renewals with a ‘well-wishing’ – a particularly memorable commission inspired by the words of a couple’s loved ones. Having asked my clients to nominate a select group from family/friends, I get in touch and ask some simple questions, their answers kept secret until the big reveal.

The final piece may include description, advice perhaps and always plenty of good wishes, but I don’t name specific contributors so everyone can relax and enjoy the experience. Each well-wishing is wholly unique to the couple concerned and it’s a wonderful way to pause, reflect, laugh and even shed a happy tear, as everyone takes the moment in. You can see what I mean by reading my wedding testimonials.

You can also book me to create a well-wishing independently of any ceremony – surely a potential highpoint of any Reception’s speeches, or to mark a loved one’s birthday or a couple’s wedding anniversary in style. In fact, they can be adapted to almost any occasion.
