I had a lovely, busy day last Sunday at The Wood Norton in Worcestershire. I was invited to exhibit at their Wedding Open Day by the lovely Tamzin from Little Wren Company. It was the first time I had been to The Wood Norton and what a lovely venue it is. So much character and the gardens were beautiful.
As I hadn’t done a wedding fair in a while it was quite a busy week in the run up to Sunday. I wanted to show off my new calligraphy and lettering skills a bit so I created a few new signs and a wooden table plan to exhibit. I really enjoy making the wooden signs and I was really pleased with how the blue/green coloured sign came out. I used a light coat on some plywood so that you can see the pattern of the wood through then used white paint pens to create the lettering.
I also had a few new designs on show and my handy husband made up some simple wooden stands to help me display my work. I was really pleased with the mix of design work on show and I had some very nice comments from a lot of people.
We had a busy start to the day with lots of lovely couples to chat to. I find it all quite daunting but I do really enjoy getting the feedback and chatting to people face-to-face. I don’t get much human contact working from home apart from my two lovely children – but they don’t tend to understand what I do!
I met some very nice fellow wedding suppliers and Tamzin our host was very helpful and friendly.
