The Woman Behind the Stationery is what it says on the tin – everything is handmade . . . by Jo (that’s me!) from my little Beach House studio in Taffs Well near Cardiff. Yes, it’s a home studio not an office or a shop, but rest assured it’s a real, full time ‘proper’ business with insurance, contracts and all the other things you need for peace of mind on your big day. I started the business in 2006 so I have a good few years wedding experience along with a background and training in graphic design as well as business management.

A passion for creativity

I’m a Mum to two gorgeous little girls and I built up to fit around them, the school run and family life, while working at something I really love. I’ve always designed cards and love to make things out of paper, so being at home with the children was the perfect opportunity to test the water and see if I could make it into a business – it seems to have worked! Family life is very important to me, so when they’re not in school I try to spend as much time with the little ones as possible – we love the beach (Wales has the best, doesn’t it?), camping and festivals.

The personal touch

The business has grown a bit over the last few years (mostly through referrals and recommendations I’m proud to say) and now I have help from a couple of very special, hand picked, perfectionist assistants. I still answer the phone, reply to all your email queries and sit down to design your beautiful stationery with you. Then my team and I source all the materials, do the printing and put it all together, finally packing it up carefully ready for you to collect. I’m always here and I’m happy to help and advise you with whatever I can for your wedding.

We love what we do

We are all passionate about beautiful things, have a slightly obsessive eye for detail. . . and we like cake and coffee (and sometimes wine)! I’m also very camera shy, so favour the slightly more unconventional ‘here’s my feet’ shot than the classic, closeup #selfie, but I’ve made an exception!
