Top tips on invitations. To the dance. The party. The reception.. The wedding. The ceremony. The table. The meal. The multi- talented Kimberley Hooley www.kghillustrates.co.uk has grown so quickly since she launched herself and her business as an illustrator – creating exquisite individual designs for wedding invitations, photo albums, bespoke cards, table plans, parties and businesses. As a former art teacher and college lecturer she is so versatile!
We met at a Wedding Fair on a very chilly day in March at the beautiful wedding venue on Waxham dunes – Waxham Great Barn – a couple of days before the wedding business changed dramatically and we all went into lockdown and free-fall.
In these difficult times, what has emerged is a wonderful sense of ‘we are all in it together’ and that’s why we support one another as a network of great wedding and event suppliers in Norfolk. It means that the network will always know ‘someone who can’ if you are stuck. Stuck for an idea, a sofa, a photo booth, a magician, a high-wire act; a florist, or an illustrator, a string quartet or a stretch-tent supplier!
Kimberley’s top tips:
Send out your save the date as soon as you have booked your venue. Even though we are living in a time of uncertainty, it is still beneficial to do this as your guests will need to know the date of your wedding to be able to plan it around their busy lives. If you are afraid of your date being postponed, at KGH Illustrates we offer a change the date e-card to my customers free of charge in your save the date design.
Book your invitations sooner rather than later to secure your booking, as 2021 and 2022 are now busy years for weddings. If you are worried your wedding date will change once the invitations have been sent out, I can offer you a reprint with the updated information at print and postage cost only, or you can opt for the free e-card service.
