My invites were perfect, just as I’d hoped for. I was anxious about the quality but when they arrived I was pleased to see that the attention to detail and the quality was just perfect. Thank you x

I stumbled across ThevWedding Invite Company whilst looking for affordable wedding reception invites, following our forthcoming wedding in Santorini. The correspondence with Zoe was brilliant, she was very prompt with her responses and I must say delivery following our order was super quick. The invites arrived in a lovely package and we are delighted with them. We have since ordered other wedding stationary from Zoe. Thank you so much for our orders, we love them!

About

Welcome to The Wedding Invite Company!

I say we, I mean I. I being Zoe, who set up a little tiny dining room table business back in 2003, mainly to escape the new job title of Mother.

Having left a corporate job in the West End of London for a large well known department store chain beginning with D (which I loved) to have babies, I didn't love the new job title. I used to be creative, wear funky shoes, people used to stop me on the street to admire my handbag or dress. Now people admired the babies and I had baby goop in my flick ups.

ENOUGH. I thought. I can be a mother AND I'm sure I can still be a new twist on a previous version.

A phonecell with my sister was enough to put the wheels into motion. She had started making greetings cards and loved it. Within 6 weeks, the house was full to the rafters of crafting stuff, machinery, Sizzix machines, Guillotines, Card, Paper, Envelopes, fancy scissors that cut scalloped edges, mulberry paper and paper roses. I sold my first batch of 36 greetings cards on 6th April 2003 to a little coastal shop called Natural Edge in Leigh in Sea, Essex, under my new business name of Tin Can Cardz.

Very quickly I developed my own style, and a lot of what I initially bought (paper roses, scalloped scissors, sequinned hearts etc) I either passed onto the playgroups for arts and crafts, or it went back on eBay.

In 2004, I branched into wedding stationery, but needed a new business name.
After putting my youngest to bed (he was around 5 months old) I looked at him, and my heart swelled. He was wearing a bunny romper suit, complete with hood, ears and fluffy tail. You are so delicious, my bunny, I thought.

Delicious Bunny .... Bunny Delicious!!!
Ta Dah moment!

The glory days of between 2004 and 2008 heralded my biggest leaps and bounds in the business.

The biggest challenge was the handmade market bottoming out in 2008. Handmade things suddenly became a bit tacky and standards of handmade items, were either glorious or downright shoddy. Handmade vs Homemade. Big difference. A cleaner, simpler force of graphic design for Wedding Stationery swept in, in 2009 and literally pulled the rug out from under the feet of the handmade wedding stationery market. The need for stylish handmade stationery was replaced with flat, quirky digitally printed stationery.

The truth was simple. Die or Adapt.

So, with my range of handmade designs, I adapted them to paper, scanned them to produce jpegs and joined the digital revolution.

The recession hit, and the timing couldn't have been better with digital work costing far less in time to produce than handmade.

In 2013, I was awarded 'Best Wedding Stationery' by Essex Wedding Magazine and became a 'National Finalist' in the Wedding Industry Awards AND a 'Finalist' in the Wedding Ideas Magazine Awards.

My father passed away in 2014 and the marketplace for Weddings had shifted again, so 2015 was very much taking stock of what was, what is and what's coming, and ultimately what to change.

At the end of 2016, I decided to re-invent myself again and Bunny Delicious became The Wedding Invite Company. A studio space became available at Martels Wedding and Events Village in Barnston, Essex and I moved my studio in on 1st February 2017.
