Introducing Letterfest

Carrying on from Tuesday's post after our anniversary trip to the Brecon Beacons, I'd like to share with you my anniversary gift to my husband - and who are we kidding, to myself! I found this lovely company sometime last year when I registered for wedding gift at Not On The Highstreet. Letterfest is a small company based in nearby Devon, and their website has a range of beautiful products.

I clocked their personalised illustrations as being the perfect first anniversary gift since, traditionally, the couple is supposed to give each other a gift of paper. All these months later, I couldn't get them out of my mind. I just had to have one! Or two!

We didn't have a professional photographer at our wedding as our budget wouldn't really allow for one, and it is truly one of my biggest regrets. Consequently, there aren't many nice photographs of our wedding and reception venues. So when I came across the highly stylised Letterfest illustrations, I thought this would be a great way to capture our venues.

We were married at the beautiful Guildhall in Bath, and our reception was held in a small village south of Bath at a Tudor pub called The George Inn. The most brilliant thing about the Letterfest illustrations is that I sent them two very different photos that I found of the venues on the internet. And now they are drawn in the same style, are matted and framed, and will be hanging together in our home forever in a very special way.

I would definitely recommend this sweet company to anyone looking for a personalised gift. Their customer service was great, and the turnaround time was outstanding. Thank you Letterfest!


  1. So happy that you love your illustrations! Happy Anniversary to you both. Love Letterfest x

    1. Thank you Anna. We are delighted with them. In fact, I was just thinking this morning that these photos don't do the illustrations enough justice. I might take news ones this weekend to really highlight them! - Mary
