Today we focus on one of our long standing preferred suppliers. The lovely Steve and Susie from Archibald Edwards. Here’s their story:
Company name and service:
Archibald Edwards – Fabulous Wedding Stationery
When did you open for business and what inspired you to start up?:
2011 is when we opened our door for business – I created the stationery for my youngest daughters wedding, I designed everything needed for the wedding & lavish reception. After the wedding I had so many compliments from guests and the venue staff I started to think this was something I would really like to do.
What do you love most about your job?:
Dealing with happy couples, it’s so lovely to be part of their special day.
Describe your typical day when working at a wedding:
A typical day can be consultations in the morning, followed by design and artwork in the afternoon or it can be dressing a venue & catching-up with brides for last minute ideas they may have.
What do you think makes you different to other similar suppliers?:
As an experienced designer I have a real passion for creating unique design, so this gives me the perfect opportunity to run wild and create something really special for a couple. I also create all my own illustration, be flowers or that important venue or church, this allows me to be able to mix and match illustration & design. change colours, so whatever is needed I have control.
