Today I am thrilled to spotlight on the luxury modern Wedding Stationery of Ruby Blue Weddings.
Ruby Blue started in 2010 and is the creation of North Yorkshire based designer Sall Clapham.
Her design style is simple and elegant with a speciality in wedding invitations but also creating invitations and stationery for engagements, birthdays and christenings.
I hand you over to Sall to tell you all about this blossoming business…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“Hi there! We are Ruby Blue Weddings. We specialise in providing luxury, modern wedding stationery, inspired by understated style, contemporary patterns and natural, tonal colours.”
“Products range from invitations to order of services and a bespoke design service is also on hand.”
“Our ethos is to create beautiful, unique, memorable wedding stationery that comes with a friendly and professional service to all our customers.”
“We strive to create designs that will compliment and inspire your entire day.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“I first started our other business (Ruby Blue Cards) in 2007.”
“I worked in construction doing technical drawings but the company sadly went into administration whilst I was on maternity leave with my first son.”
“I took the opportunity to set up my own business after receiving an overwhelming response from making my own wedding invitations the year before.”
“I thought it would be an ideal business to fit around my children.”
“I made cards, wedding stationery and prints and the business grew from strength to strength, (as well as my 2 little boys)!”
“I loved the wedding side but it was very time consuming.”
“My 2 boys are now both in school, so I have set up a new website (Ruby Blue Weddings) to concentrate more on wedding stationery, which I just love.”
What inspires you?
“Lots of things inspire me, from beautiful fonts, coordinating colour pallets to stunning wedding photography posted all over Instagram.”
“There are so many wonderful wedding themes and ideas, i just look at different wedding images and think, ah, that would look lovely with this wedding stationery!”
“Even things like food packaging or headings on tv. It’s the designer in me, I always notice fonts and beautiful typography, wherever I go.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Yes, of course! I like to keep up with the constantly changing stationery trends and merge them into my own style and designs.”
“I have been involved in wedding stationery for 10 years now and have seen trends come and go.”
“However, I believe that the the understated style of classic stationery will never go out of fashion and will always remain part of my design collection.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“It would have to be the setting up and growth of my business (and my 2 websites, which I did all myself) whilst raising my 2 little ones.”
“I have never needed childcare which is amazing. I will never forget setting out to find stockists for my cards with a portfolio in one hand and a 3 month old baby in the other!”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“Growing our range of wedding stationery and meeting lots more beautiful couples! LOVE LOVE LOVE being part of the wedding industry!”
