The first post of 2016 and I think this one is going to be hard to beat. As you know Oyster & Pearl was crowned the South West regional winner in the ‘Best Stationery’ category of The Wedding Industry Awards 2016, something I had only ever dreamt about. I then went though to the national finals which took place in Café de Paris in London last week, although Oyster & Pearl did not win, I felt hugely privileged to see my name alongside such stationery greats as Paperknots, The Charming Press, Lovlei, Two Little Ducks, Phylecia Sutherland and Mary Loves Bob. The deserved winner was the fabulous Paperknots who defended her title to win the award for the second year in a row.

Slightly sad that the whole experience was coming to an end, I had almost forgotten about the best bit, I would finally get a chance to read all the comments…

I was left utterly speechless by the unbelievably kind words from each and every one of my couples. It was an absolutely pleasure to create these designs and to hear that my clients enjoyed the process as much as I did is just fantastic. I cannot thank you all enough, without every one of you I would not have achieved this incredible award and I can honestly say that reading your comments is my proudest moment so far.

Below are just a few of the comments about Oyster & Pearl…

So as we start a new year with a diary full of bookings I am more inspired than ever to continue to create beautiful stationery for every one of my couples. Happy New Year, lets make this the best one yet! x

“What a total pleasure and honour to have had our wedding stationary designed and made so beautifully by Oyster and Pearl. We were overwhelmed from the outset by Casey’s professionalism, expert designs and total commitment to our wedding - going above and beyond to meet our very tight time scale. We had so many compliments on the day of the beautiful work and cannot recommend highly enough the work and business Casey has created.”

Mrs Alison Hunter-Smith

“From the start Oyster & Pearl were passionate, accommodating, professional and I could not fault anything in my experience with them. We were given a time line of what to expect when which was always kept to and the delivery of the product and presentation of the invites were outstanding. I could not recommend Oyster & Pearl more highly and only wish that so many other companies could adopt the commitment, attention to detail and passion that they do about their work.”

Miss Laura Robinson

“’’Too beautiful to open’’ ’’Utterly gorgeous’’ ’’Like nothing we’ve ever seen before’’ These were just a few of the comments we had from friends and family after they received our invitations! Working with Casey has been an absolute pleasure. She took time to really understand us, and was instantly on board with the look and feel we were hoping to achieve for our big day. The creative and quality is outstanding - her attention to detail phenomenal.”

Mrs Esther O’Connor

“Casey was probably the most efficient wedding supplier I worked with. She was very quick to respond to emails and sent through design ideas promptly and with a lot of care and thought. She listened to our brief and came up with designs we could never have imagined could be achieved. We loved the stationary so much we booked oyster and pearl again for our blessing stationary. Casey was so polite and showed a genuine interest in our day which made working with her such a pleasure.”
