You know we like to keep our readers updated with lots of key dates for your diaries including designer weekends, bridal soirees, Luxury Wedding Exhibitions (we do a few of those, had you noticed?!) and workshops, so today we are really happy to share the details of our gorgeous Sponsor, Claire of Calligraphy For Weddings‘ calligraphy class. If you fancy adding a personal touch to your wedding stationery or simply learning a beautiful new skill, this one is for you. Places are very limited, and Claire tells me that she’ll have to be strict, so make sure to get in touch quickly to reserve your place… happy scribbling!
