Supplier Showcase - Jenna Claire Stationery
Yes, it really is December already and I love a Winter Wedding and everything involved in it as my followers will know. This month I'll be sharing some Winter Destination Wedding gems that you'll love whilst working on a super exciting Winter photoshoot with some incredible suppliers.
On that note...It's over to the ever so talented Jenna for our next supplier showcase, and this time we're talking Wedding Stationery and more.
Tell us how it started
My name is Jenna Claire and I live in Leicestershire with my husband in a market town surrounded by beautiful countryside. Since a very young age I have always had a passion for handcrafting stationery for all occasions. With a background in Fashion Design I have grown up as a designer and ever since I got married in April 2014, have developed a love for weddings.
Having designed and made all my own wedding stationery, I love to create unique and personal designs that reflect just what your wedding day is all about. Jenna Claire is a brand designing beautiful stationery and paper goods for all occasions. Pick your colour scheme and theme to match your special day and we can work together to create your perfect stationery!
What service/s do you offer and to which region?
I design and create hand made stationery for all occasions, specialising in weddings from save the dates and invitations to on the day stationery of table plans, place settings, menus and many more. I work together with my clients to understand their needs and create a range as big or little as they like to fit with their theme. I am based in Leicestershire and love to meet my clients face to face if in the surrounding areas but I also can post countrywide.
Do you have a top tip for newly engaged couples?
Congratulations on your recent engagement! My main tip would be don't rush into the planning of your wedding. Embrace the moment! It's one of the most exciting times of your life and making decisions takes time. You want to think about every aspect of your day carefully and plan your vision together as a couple. Enjoy yourself! One of the most important things for me, other than marrying my best friend and having all my family and friends there, was choosing the right photographer to capture your special day. Photographs last a lifetime!
Who would be your ideal client?
I would describe my ideal clients as everyday people with a touch of sparkle. They are ordinary people who love a little glam, appreciate quality and have a creative edge. I treat each stationery order as if it was for my own wedding, and a lot of love and care goes into hand crafting my client vision.
How do you like to unwind?
When taking time out I love to hang out with my family and friends. My husband and I enjoy meals out, weekends away and road trips, whilst with my girl friends I am partial to a spot of shopping, sipping cocktails or relaxing and pampering myself at a spa.
What trends have you noticed in 2016?
In 2016 top stationery trends include calligraphy and attention to fonts, watercolour and gold foil. Rustic charm is still a popular trend with barns and teepee's being popular venue choices. The photo booth really came into its own as a wedding entertainment choice.
